  • 8.0.Very Good

    Good location for walking into town.

    The hotel was clean, bed very comfy and bathroom modern. Hotel generally was quite old and small. My room was facing the road/roundabout which was quite noisy during the night. Staff were very nice and friendly.

    Great location, easily walkable to everything you want to see. Car park about a block away, not a far walk.

    Nice hotel but the heat was marginal. Heater was behind thick curtains.

  • 6.0.Good

    Average at best.

    The hotel is currently under rehab and was extremely noisy. Apparently they will undergo a name change on November 14th so hopefully it's done by then so in the meantime, if you plan on relaxing in your room during the day...find another hotel. If you will be sightseeing and gone all day, this will suffice. Another downside is that they will hold your luggage but it will not be secure and can be easily stolen. The storage is out in the open between the front desk and the front door.

  • 10.0.Exceptional

    The location was perfect being just across from the train station. This property had recently been upgraded, and the restuarant was closed during the time we were there. However, breakfast was served to us in our room. It was wonderful! We were able to walk to every venue from this hotel. I highly recommend it!

    The location was perfect with the train station nearby. The room did seem a bit pricey considering breakfast was not included and the hotel was undergoing construction. Overall a nice stay.
