We decided not to say anything, as the rooms were ok despite the old bathroom and granny style lamp shades. Check in was efficient and but we were a bit taken aback by how we were asked to pay straight away. Trying to...

The hotel is very well located. It is really close to the bus station. The shower screen was too small so the toilet gets totally wet after having a shower and I had the worst views ever. However, the room was clean and the staff were nice and helpful.

We had three nights here with 2 teenagers in a family room. Typical older Scandic property, could do with decorating and updates to furniture although definitely not the worst have been in. Staff were all really nice and helpful. Breakfast was excellent. We used the attached restaurant for one evening and it was very good.
