Room was clean and spacious. We stayed at the second floor, it has no elevator. But that was not a big problem, Our room was two story. Parking lot was enough to parking. I would be happy to stay there again in the future.

This was very clean, neat, quiet about 15 minute walk from major sites. The staff were friendly and helpful. There was one washer and dryer available for a low price. No elevator if you are on the second floor. Microwave and mini fridge only but that was not a problem.

Room was clean and spacious, good hot water pressure, great location. I woke up to a 2 degrees Celsius morning outside but room was very warm (even without any heating). My first pick for accommodation but usually no vacancy (for good reason).

We were situated on the ground floor so cannot answer that question. We arrived about 4.30pm on a Sunday and lots of places were closed But we also did not require a supermarket so didn't notice to be honest! But we had a really good meal and were entertained by a live band in a local bar That was recommended by the guy on reception at the hotel.
