Finding the hotel did present my SatNav with a bit of a challenge through the streets of the old town, but we were glad we made it.
Reception was very friendly and efficient. We were shown 3 rooms and given the choice. This may have been because we were 3 nights, and I think for many it was a one night stop.
Room was a good size. although not much of a view. Decent bathroom.
The hotel itself is facinating. Old castle, with its own tower you can go up. Also walk around its ramparts, and the 2km walk around the town walls starts and finishes here.
Lovely garden you can sit out in, with views across the river.
Breakfast is normally a decent buffet, and you can order eggs and bacon to go with it. For some reason though, with no explanation on the first (Monday) morning, we were just served fruit and a plate of cooked meats. No buffet laid out. As the waitress did not speak English, we have no idea if this was because they were quiet or not.
Ate dinner one night, which was fine without being spectacular.
The old town is lovely to walk around. The Portugeese border is about 20km away, and make a great day trip.
Would happily repeat if we were in the area again.More
