I stayed here at the end of February/beginning of March and it was great. The location was really handy for the town centre (10 mins) and the station (15 mins). Be aware that the station is at the top of a big hill and which is not obvious if you navigate via google maps.
The room was clean and tidy and well equipped but what made my stay there was the staff.
From the chatty fella at the bar on friday to the receptionists who helped me out with taxis and printing my boarding pass they could not have done more.
Couple of tips, the hydro power thingy on the river sounds like a waterfall if you open your window which is cool but if that is not your thing then the air con works well.
Try the Chinese in the town centre called woksupp. Cheap, fast and fresh.
