Booked this hotel because of its proximity to the train station. Location is perfect, just across the station, up a flight of stairs. Hotel staff are all very nice and helpful. Breakfast is adequate with cereals, brioche, cakes, ham, cheese, juices, fruits...and omelettes which unfortunately are not kept in warm trays, so they are served ice cold. Our room, which was spacious and could fit all 6 of us comfortably was clean but is in dire need of refurbishment. Furniture is very old fashioned but bathroom was ok. We've noticed that we were staying in an old section and on the right hand side of the reception, there is what i think is the new section which is modernly made up and seems much more high standard than the section we were in. In any case all in all we would stay there again...preferably in the modern section.
