This brand new hotel could easily pass for a Crowne Plaza. Its furnishings and amenities are the equivalent of the more luxurious brand of IHG hotels. However, we were very disappointed to find that the free shuttle bus (one of the reasons for booking this hotel) was withdrawn three weeks ago. That left us dependent on a bus that runs half hourly, ends fairly early in the evening, and runs not at all on a Sunday. Therefore we were forced to eat in the hotel (the only local restaurant being closed for their vacation). The hotel food was good, but expensive (probably because the portions were unnecessarily large) and the choice was somewhat limited. We had a bar snack the second night, but only a few cheese and ham sandwiches were available here. Breakfast was good value at 10 euros, with a wide choice. Tour buses were mainly segregated at breakfast, although one morning we competed with a full bus load. Having said that, the rooms were excellent and the bathrooms spacious. We had restful sleep after enjoying the use of the free WiFi. Too bad about that shuttle. . . .
