Friendly helpful reception and staff, comfy beds and nice breakfast. Set on charming waterfront and handy as a stop over en route to the Picos de Europa and Portugal. Our room was well equipped and immaculately clean. A great start to our holiday.

It really looked good with a great view over the bay. Modern hotel but the room smelt of drains and the staff did nothing about it. We had to sleep with the window wide open and the bathroom door closed. It made us feel sick. It was the non reaction that made it worth noting not that they had trouble... More

I will start with the only down side there is no parking for cars at the hotel but plenty on the street. Fortunately me and my 3 friends were on motorbike on this visit and there is a garage for motorbikes. I have stayed at this hotel several times with both friends and family. Its location is fantastic it is... More

Nice Hotel close to the restaurants and center. We stayed one night because we were walking the Camino Santiago's route. The rooms are very clean and the beds are good. The staff is very friendly and the breakfast is very good! There is a lot of choice for a very reasonable price. I would recommend this hotel also if you... More

This hotel and location was a very pleasant surprise. We had a room on the upport floor under the roof. It was quite hot (no A/C) but the night was cooler and we were able to sleep with the window open. The view from the room on the bridge and bay are superb. The city center was just across the...

It was disappointing as we booked online but the room wasn't shown on website as an example and it was very small in the roof space and hot with no air con . This should be advertised as such instead of just showing big rooms with sea views .

The location of the hotel is good, with excellent views to the estuary and the historical centre. Rooms are simple, but very clean, no carpet and the bathroom is OK. The receptionists are very nice, but the breakfast service is not very good. I wouldn´t recommend "complete breakfast", it's not worth the price.

Pretty reasonable hotel - especially when the price was reduced by €15 per night. Clean, tidy and generally very friendly staff with the notable exception being at breakfast. The waiter/receptionist switched off the toaster whilst I was at the very meagre buffet on Sunday, and took food away as soon as I either choose the item or moved half a... More

Rather forlorn establishment; we stayed two nights in late May, before the season really got cranked up, and low occupancy contributed to bleak effect. The hotel sits just across the second bridge, overlooking the little old town and estuary, and somehow seems remote despite being just a two minute walk into town. Very basic furnishings and amenities. Only because desk... More

We got our trip round Spain off to a good start at this hotel. Welcome reception staff. Spacious corner room with superb views. Not the most modern bathroom but it was fine. It has underground parking but it's a tight squeeze even for a motorbike!
