Lovely hotel, great staff
Stayed 4 nights to attend a trade show at Messe with 4 colleagues. Hotel staff lovely, breakfast really good, service good also. Location not ideal for visiting local restaurants without having to use a taxi - walking distance would have been great, otherwise will stay here again next year.
