Loved it! Nice staff, clean, quiet and well located. You can go walking downtown and visit the main buidling. There are many restaurants nearby and sleeping is really easy on those fluffly beds. I would repeat!

Perfect location, excellent courteous staff, nice breakfast, laundry service, self sufficient rooms though a bit larger rooms would have been appreciable. Would surely recommend to everyone. True value for money.

This just pays the first part of your room. You won’t get it back but it comes off the price when you arrive.

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.
