This is a very nice place to stay. Close to town and walking distance to train and midtown. The rooms are a touch tight but comfortable. Make sure you select the bathroom in room. Great staff, very helpful and friendly. I will be back.

Friendly Staff, amazing breakfast, close to the city centre, hotel is a bit old but cosy. Would recommend refurbishing the hotel for an even better experience for guests, but overall satisfactory. Would visit again.

Our family rooms have a double bed and a single bed, normally for three occupants; it would depend on the age of your children and for how many nights you wish to stay. Please contact the hotel directly with your request.
