Liked the space in the room and the cleanliness. Good kitchen space and functional. Staff were helpful and friendly. Buffet breakfast was great. Lacked accurate information on booking and paying for buffet breakfast. There was too much light from spotlight outside entering room. Bed mattress had broken (noisy) springs. Top sheet had a stain.

Room was clean and tidy but bathroom a bit outdated. Our room was facing main street so the night was not so quiet. Hotel is close to eveything so we didn't need our car to explore city centre and have fun. Overall experience was great.
