Very welcoming & the check-in was very easy. Reception staff informed everything from WiFi password to events at their restaurant. Room was clean tidy. Heating and cooling works perfectly. Place even came with on-site secure parking. Highly recommended to everyone.

We stay here often. But we had 2 nights and we’re surprised the room wasn’t serviced after the first night. Maid only knocked on door and we asked for fresh towels. Thought hotels always had beds made and bins emptied. We’re disappointed with this.
