En route from Porto to the Basque coast and stopped here one night. It was an ideal one night stop-over and was amazingly cheap. The situation of the hotel is a bit remote - 5kms out of town but handy for the motorway the next day. Be warned it is in an industrial area with a big factory over the road and a derelict plot next door (our room over-looked this) and a pen of dogs out the back at a neighbours (not as noisy as I had anticipated) but can't fault the room itself, which was spotless and good value for a clean, comfy bed for the night. I imagine the hotel gets mostly business travellers and workers during the week time so it was very quiet on a Saturday night.
After a long, hot drive to get there, we opted to eat in the restaurant and had aperos in the bar and were brought olives etc with our drinks (but only by the second round, and after having purchased some apero biscuits with the first round!)
There was not a soul in the restaurant at 8.30pm and we were left in total isolation to eat! The waitress was like something from Fawlty Towers and despite our efforts to converse (in Spanish) and smile, she served us stony faced and almost threw the food at us. Across the room they had laid up for a very large coach party and we were clearly an addition she did not want with a busy night to come!
The food really was dreadful! A bizarre entrée of spaghetti bolognese, followed by a dried up bit of chicken breast and 10 shrivelled and well cooked chips (looked and tasted as though they had been re-cooked at least twice). Dessert was described as a chocolate cake and it really was a mass manufactured piece of very cheap cake. A total disappointment and, TBH, I would have rather had a McDonalds back in the town - it was that bad!!
So I have only given the hotel an "Average" for the above reasons but if you just take the bed for the night, then it would be a higher score. After the previous evening's experience, we did not take breakfast so cannot comment on this.
