Wonderful place to stay at, with lovely rooms and really nice front desk reception. They serve real nice breakfast, especially if you choose the hot breakfast selection. Also it was really nice to get a free complimentary drink upon arriving. Beds were absolutely amazing!

We have stayed here twice now and each time we have received great service from the staff on reception and also the bar and restaurant staff. The rooms are small but have everything you need for an overnight or short term stay.

Please note that while I can't comment on a shuttle service, the train station is not walking distance (about a 25 min walk) nor is it on an easy bus route. Your best bet is a taxi or Uber.
