Hotel is extremely well located ( 5 min walk from the railway station, very easy to find).
Great Staff, extremely friendly and helpful, rooms were nice and cosy, not very modern,but with every thing you need. A big plus is as well the free tea and coffee provided in the rooms.
Breakfast was very good ( loads of swiss cheese, juice, fruit, bread etc).
Would definatly book there again
