                  7.4

                  The hotel was as expected, modern, clean, plain but roomy.

                  Both exterior and interior were plain and ordinary, nothing bad, just nothing to admire.

                • Family with children
                  6.2

                  The location is nearby the lake and train station. The room is spacious.

                  The hotel is rather old generally. The price is too high for the room.

                • Older travelers
                  7.4

                  It was a good sized room with the usual amenities. Near to the centre of a suburb where there were bars and shops etc.

                  We returned to the hotel about 10-30pm but the bar had closed.

                • Older travelers
                  7.4

                  Easy access to the places I wanted to go to, adequate parking, pleasant and helpful staff, availability of internet, reasonably priced restaurent with good menue.

                  The restaurant is relatively small to accommodate guests specially at breakfast when people are obliged to move a lot to serve themselves.

                • Older travelers
                  7.8

                  Arrived at 2.50 book in not till 3 had to wait till 3.30 but given free drink voucher for bar room, lovely free wi fi big roomy bath room nice comfy bed,s tea and coffee a bonus loads of space in wardrobes and little touches that make this hotel nice

                  Reception seemed very harased but was still very helpful. Lots of building work going on further down our hall but not that noisy. We were let in to our room late and had to watch the cleaner make up our bed a bit embarising then she left her trolly in the hall out side our room all night which is a fire hazard the hotel is a fare way from beil and a map of which way to go would of been helpful the old town is beautiful once you find itl

                • Couple
                  7.4

                  room was clean, breakfast was very nice, staff was friendly

                • Family with children
                  5.8

                  Helpful staff, decent buffet breakfast, free parking, good location

                  We have got other room that was booked, got a little discount on that though. In general the hotel needs refurbishment.

                • Single
                  4.6

                  Hotel staff suddenly knocked my door with big voice, he told he has problem with internet connection and want to check it in my room.he was really rude and I was interrupted my sleep.

                • Single
                  7.8

                  Welcome drink. BBC World and CNN on tv available. Good breakfast with wurst and scrambled egg also available. Friendly staff. Decent for quick business trip.

                  Drilling and hammering in nearby room around 6.50am although not major upset.

                • Single
                  8.2

                  Friendliness of staff, free internet access, good food, welcome drink on the house.

                  Noise from the street.

                • Older travelers
                  8.2

                  Air conditioning would improve the status of the hotel.

                • Older travelers
                  8.8

                  The afternoon receptionist could not have been more helpful and even organised our next hotel for us. The breakfast was excellent.

                  We mistakenly put money in the car park machine whereas this was unnecessary - but there was not a notice to tell us this.

                • Couple
                  7.8

                  The breakfast is amazing and of a high quality; the parking possibility is very praktical

                  The 2 beds in our double room did not stay together because of wheels without "brakes"

                • Older travelers
                  8.8

                  Very handy for the railway station. The suite of rooms we had had all the facilities and comfort but would have been a lot more comfortable if it had air conditioning as it was a South facing room.

                  The lack of air conditioning and waiter did not understand English in order to advise on the menu in the restaurant.

                • Older travelers
                  6.2

                  nice clean large room. decent buffet breakfast. free parking.

                  No aircon, road noise if the windows are opened.
