The hotel is just over a 15 min walk from the railway station but the taxis are cheap,
Reception was friendly and helpful (I wanted to know where the nearest ATM was).
My room (No. 6) was on the top floor at the front. The one way road was not very bust and there was a small garden opposite so the lack of double glazing was not serious.
I eat in the hotel restaurant and found the service both quick and pleasant. The food was good.
I should have enjoyed a good nights sleep but the bed had a douvet, not sheet and blankets, so I kept waking either too hot or cold.
Breakfast was good although the selection was poor by continental standards. It is served from 07:30, not the normal 07:00 which meant that I had to re-arrange my train times.
For all the little things I would certainly stay there again.
