An excellent hotel, well organised, helpful staff, good food especially as it is cooked for large numbers of people eating at more a less the same time. It is about 20 years old and had a refurbishment about three years ago. Continuing maintenance is good and very little looks worn in comparison with some hotels which appear to have a blitz every so often. It is owned by a German group and is very popular with Germans. So what is the one thing. The sleep quality is abysmal. The walls of the rooms are so thin you can hear everything and I mean everything. Also there is a bar across the road which bumps into the early hours so much so that the bedrooms are fitted with a double front door to keep the noise out. My partner does not entirely agree with this but she takes her hearing aid out at night. Even then she can detect sounds. The silk purse and sow's ear metaphor is so true. For all the efforts of management and staff the miserly saving on sound proofing spoils the lot. So if you are deciding about this hotel, if your hearing is not as good as it used to be, you'll like it. If you are an insomniac you will not care. The people next door do not have to be particularly noisy but you will hear them snoring, walking about at night, talking, coughing. Oh and the tvs do not have any sound control which a lot of hotels have.
