Very Good business and covid leisure hotel
Very friendly and accommodating staff, good breakfast and the most powerful shower despite being on 5th floor. You can actually wash your car with that sort of water pressure -:). Pool area is nice too and short walk to the centre. Parking is small but you can find free parking around the hotel on the street.
