Dear Mr Joe-VATAN, Thank you for taking the time to review us on trip advisor but your review lacks so much in coherence and grammar. You start by saying it was amazing but you give us a 2 star ? The staff is very young. I disagree with your comment about poor hotel and old staff and agree with you comment about the location which beyond ok is excellent.

"All rooms my guests stayed in were quiet."
"As parking is first come first served try to arrive as close to check in time as possible."
"Rooms in another hotel are your best bet."
"Rooms near the roof terrace of the bar next door can be noisy during the evening, but all is quiet and peaceful through the night."
"Request a room that does not overlook the railway for a better nights sleep."
