Good for a Family Weekend
Perfect stay for a family weekend. The hotel and rooms look new and the staff was friendly. The location was ideal for us as we had a car, hence appreciated the gated parking at a reasonable rate. This hotel is a healthy walk from the center, or an easy tram ride, which you need to do for the restaurants and sights. We also paid for breakfast which was excellent, especially the locally produced jams and jellies. Overall a good stay.

I'd come back
A great little hotel with very friendly and helpful staff. If you're arriving or leaving by train the proximity to the station is excellent. It's a bit of a walk down to the river and old town but if you can't be bothered walking the tram stop is right next door. The room was spacious and comfortable and the breakfast buffet was very good with lots of variety.
