Great little hotel

I have stayed here many times but never left a review. It’s a great hotel and offers both rooms in main building and at the studio type apartments. Easy and free parking. More a residential area but 20mins walk to the town centre. Staff here are great and they offer bikes and even lights for nighttime. Breakfast is average for a hotel with something for everyone. Supermarket near by if you want to prepare your own in the apartments. Would stay here again.

Some good, some bad

This is a mixed review and a possible caution for others. The hotel is nice, rooms large and comfortable. However, we seemed to be treated like second class which came up in a discussion with the front desk. We had 3 service issues - TV not working, I complained 3 times before it was replaced, I indicated the safe would not functioned as directed, I had to bring the topic up twice before being heard and our room was not cleaned on the second day. When I brought this topic up to the front desk - I was told that they were confused and that because we had only paid 70 Euro per night (thru Hotel.com) and there normal rate was in excess of 100 Euro that they had decided to treat us like weekly clients who get no room service. It did feel like we were being treated like second class. The big apology would be that they would clean our room tomorrow. Not much of an apology if you ask me. Top management obviously isnt communicating with the front line as to rates they are advertising rooms. The other issue is parking. They advertise free parking which is true with the following caveat. There 8-10 space parking lot is also used by their restaurant which is full every night. If you arrive back at the hotel between 6-9 pm, you will have to try and find a spot on the street which is very difficult. Beyond these issues, the hotel room was very nice. Note there is not an elevator

Huge jaccuzzi was an unexpected bonus on the top floor. Two flights up and quite a corridor but no offer of help with suitcase wasn't great, otherwise the staff were very polite and helpful. Very spacious light room; no doors to wardrobes would look messy during a longer stay though. Skylight over the bed is a head hazard first thing in the morning. Excellent breakfast in a well-designed modern conservatory. (Unsecured) free wi-fi connected automatically and was strong enough to stream movies. Very good bar restaurant next door is a real plus.
