On our first visit, we chose this hotel solely due to it's close proximity to the railway station (it's right next to it!). However, we have grown to like this hotel - the superior rooms are well equipped, have nice bathrooms but are only average in size.
The room price includes a buffet breakfast with a very generous selection available. This is one of the best buffet breakfasts we've had in a long time.
The restaurant is pleasant, has a reasonable menu but to my mind is well over-priced compared with independent restaurants in the area (having said that, they're prices are comparable with other main hotels in the area).
The reception staff are very well trained, speak perfect English if required and were extremely helpful.
My only criticism was it proved difficult to get a drink from the bar - we waited for over 10 minutes - no bar staff to be seen. Six other customers were also waiting. I mentioned the problem to the Reception staff and they promised to get somebody to serve us. A few minutes later two staff arrived and served us. It's not a major issue, but it would nice if the hotel management could keep an eye on this.
To sum up, we still like the hotel enough to be returning later in the year.
