The hotel was easy to get to, and we were greeted by friendly staff. The location was ideal for commuting to our business meetings. The food was excellent, the bedrooms were also very comfortable. I enjoyed my stay there and would look to go back again in the future.

Good mix of friendly ambiance and modern atmosphere.
