We stayed at this apart/hotel recently and it turned out to be the perfect choice at a reasonable rate.
Unlike some other hotels we were able to reserve secure car parking in advance, and if the garage was full then the hotel would say so. The entrance to the garage was situated on the right hand side of the street just before the hotel sign.
The girl on the front desk was very helpful and pleasant. One thing I did notice though, was that the reception desk closed in the evening which was a bit daunting for anyone arriving to check- in the evening. During these times the staff in the hotel restaurant take over.
The room we had was very clean and modern and the advertised photos were a precise reflection. If you are looking for somewhere plush then this probably won't suit you, but it is good in it"s own way.
The small kitchenette area was very handy for us as a family with all the basic equipment. The beds were comfortable and we all slept fine.
Breakfast is served in the restaurant downstairs and is adequate - we took our breakfast to our room to eat.
The only food we ate in the restaurant was a bread and cheese platter- White sliced bread with cheese square slices -
There didn't appear to be any shops or restaurants near the hotel and the walk into town takes about 15 min - quite a walk for small children buggy advisable. There is a small playground and park 5 min from the hotel and you will notice this as you walk into town.
Overall we enjoyed our stay.
