Staff were very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was excellent, lots of choices. Good location, within easy walking distance of shopping centre, bus and train station. Room was small, but comfortable. Shower was a bit of a challenge. I would certainly use this hotel again and recommend it for anyone looking for a moderate budget place to stay overnight.
