Location was excellent. Short walk to train station and the river sites.

Beware that some rooms have shared bath facilities. Rooms with bath are priced quite a bit higher. Our room had no T.V., no phone and no carpet.

Very good customer care offered by the staff, the rooms were clean and the breakfast was excellent, will definitely use the hotel again,

No TV or telephone facilities in the room, in the summer months the hotel should supply a fan, room felt very warm at night.
