Booked into this motel because of its price, central location and thermal pool. Motel room clean with comfortable bed, amazing thermal heating with water underfloor heating, shower was particularly good with strong water pressure and hot water. Thermal pool proper experience with genuine mineral water, hot and relaxing. Very therapeutic and good for your skin. So good to stay somewhere... More

Stayed here for 4 nights but wouldn't do any more. Rooms were dated and our oven didn't work so had to use just the hob! Free wireless internet is a bonus and price was decent. Didn't use the spa.
