The staff are very helpful and friendly, rooms are a good size and very clean although a lot of construction outside means access and parking can be a bit challenging. Good selection at breakfast and the buffet dinner service is of good quality

The extra-wide and comfortable bed. Silent air conditioning. Newspaper every morning. Modern and clean room. Hotel does not have restaurants or cafes nearby. You have to take a taxi to the city centre. But the taxis are cheap.
