          • Family with children
            8.8

            The staff were very helpful and friendly,and all were multi-linguel.The room was large and airy with a large bathroom.The city centre was 1k walk away although the time there was a lot of construction going on to the roadinto the city.The station was only 10 mins away with a walk along the canal.The food in the hotel was excellent and well worth trying.I Would stay there again.

          • Family with children
            6.6

            Breakfast.

            Room wasn't up to the standards one would expect in this price.

          • Single
            7.0

            breakfast was wonderful, bathroom was good

            parking facilities are poor. Room was clean and comfortable, but slightly outdated.

          • Older travelers
            8.2

            Ideal location for parking, walks along the canal and into town, snd convenience for the places we had to get to. Excellent menu. Friendly and efficient staff.

            Lack of access to satellite TV news in English

          • Older travelers
            8.8

            Walking distance to town centre. On-site parking. First bed I've slept in where I didn't wake up with back ache!

            Shower. Single panel screen meant water went everywhere.

          • Single
            8.2

            Very good breakfast, polite staff and good location

          • Older travelers
            8.2

            Good location, comfortable, clean, good breakfast. Helpful and pleasant staff

            Room was rather dark and the lighting was dim

          • Family with children
            8.2

            Hotel restaurant is really good. Room was ok.

            Room was ok, only the shower door does not closing tightly, so it was water everywhere after taking shower.

          • Couple
            5.0

            Location just a short, but refreshing walk a way from the city centre

            Atmosphere, appearances, facilities and quality of service combined would make a very good 3 star hotel, but a poor 4 star hotel.

          • Group of friends
            8.2

            location,friendly staff,clean,

            the hot breakfast selection was not re-filled after 8.30

          • Couple
            7.4

            Great breakfast buffet

            We asked for a non-smoking room but you could smell that the room was actually a smokers room. (there was also an ashtray on the table, a bit strange for a non-smokers room...)

          • Family with children
            9.6

            We stayed here twice in 2011. Wonderful location - easy walk to town center or train station, on a canal, and with a view of a great looking gate. Nice and helpful staff - especially the front desk and breakfast staff. Terrific breakfast - excellent selection and lovely settings.

            Family room a tiny bit cramped for four people but ok.

          • Older travelers
            7.4

            Helpful staff and good breakfast which was included in the price

          • Older travelers
            6.2

            quiet, free parking, excellent breakfast

          • Family with children
            7.4

            Friendly stuff, large and comfort room. Good advise for external restaurants and laundry facility.

            Internal restaurant was close for summer vacation.
