The place was clean....very clean! Bed was comfy and the staff helpful. The one and only downside were noisy kids running up and down the corridors and 1030 at night. But that isn't the hotels fault.

Excellent staff, clean facilities and very welcome
Place looks a little run down from the outside but lovely on the inside. Nice and clean. Very friendly, helpful staff. My 6 yr old son has made a great friend and will always remember the gentleman on reception. Lovely food with great options and price variations to suit all. We loved our stay here and would not hesitate to return.

Zentrale Lage direkt an der Hauptstrasse. Große Umwege um das Hotel zu erreichen, wenn man stadtauswärts fährt. Eismaschine in der Lobby. Frühstück war OK. Kostenlose Parkplätze vor dem Hotel kostenloses WiFi
