Long walk to parking

The google maps instructions seemed scary. but thanks to our GPS we found it OK. We had enjoyed staying at former palaces in Paradores Nacionales in Spain, and we expected a similar experience but we let down: aristocracy lived better than monks! :) We only spent the night there and left early in the morning. The room was small but comfortable, and so was the bathroom. The building is austere, not at all luxurious. The breakfast buffet was not impressive. There was only one waitress. When we arrived she cleaned two spots at a table full of dirty dishes and left the rest of the mess as is. We had to ask for milk, salt and pepper, lacking at the buffet. There is no place near the hotel to have breakfast... At checking I was given a map of the town to let me know where I could park (at the public parking outside of the old town) since the normal parking was not available. On my long walk back I found 2 legal parking spots near the hotel! They should have told me: if you can't find a spot nearby, use the public parking...

Delightful and charming abbey hotel

Magnificent 17th century abbey building set in fine parkland. Quite unique really and great history. Worth a stay just for the ambience. Restaurant average and room facilities fell short a little. no daily renewals of soap or shampoos - without asking. Wifi out of action. Spa was average/good and a generous facility in view of price paid for the stay. Good location to explore the lovely coutryside and fine villages.
