Clean, kind of pleasant, but quite characterless. Seems to be a place that caters to group tours. They use the term "Bed & Breakfast" but to my sensibilities it's just a highway hotel. I stopped here despite its external aspect because it was getting late and I couldn't find anything more intimate. At almost €100 without breakfast, I would have... More
