"Clean and comfortable, with friendly and helpful service."
Overall Score5.0/ 5
There is nothing exceptionally outstanding about this hotel, but there were no problems either. All of the staff we encountered were friendly and helpful. The rooms were clean and comfortable. The free breakfasts are amply supplied and sufficient to meet most anyone's needs.
