Our stay at Hotel Tandem was perfect- easy to find, close to the town's sightseeing gems, spotless, and affordable. It is about a 20-minute walk from the train station, and its location along one of the many waterways offers easy access to walking and running paths. The man and woman who run the place are extremely friendly and kind and...

We can't say enough about how friendly and helpful the owner and staff are. We had to catch an early train, and they were kind enough to provide us with breakfast well before the usual hour (and it was a delightful breakfast!). The room we had was in the main hotel, although we were also offered the option to stay...

Stayed 3 nights here. The room is very clean and comfortable and with the wonderful river view. Breakfast is very good and the staffs are very friendly. The location is great, only 5mins walk to old town and plenty of places to eat. Definitely stay here agin.

Tandem is centrally located within walking distance from the main railway station. Nice surroundings. Family owned hotel and it shows in a very positive way; great service with personalized touch. The breakfast was superb as other viewers have already written about. It was quiet time of the year so can’t say anything about the noise isolation but I slept like...

Given it's high TA rating, we had expected more but found the service to be more enthusiastic than competent. Our room on the top floor was very pleasant with a lovely view over the river but, without a lift, lugging cases up and down two flights of stairs was hard work. Breakfast was not the 'buffet' described but an individual...

“We enjoyed our corner view. Ours was on the street side so if you are a light sleeper, this may not be for you. Even though it's not a busy street, some cars play their music loudly and it could disturb a light sleeper.”
