3/5 Okay

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, room comfort
Quiet & pleasant
I had booked a room with two king beds and upon arrival we were given a room with one double bed and no room for the extra bed for our son, so we spoke to reception who later gave us a much nicer room , this would be the one we originally booked but this did take some persuasion by my husband.

3/5 Okay

Liked: Cleanliness
Disliked: Property conditions & facilities
Not too bad, but not great
Hotel building and room look like they're a throwback to the 1970s, but comfortable enough

4/5 Good

Gedateerd Hotel
Stond in eerste instantie niet aangemeld als gast. Hadden mijn bevestiging niet ontvangen, echter goed opgelost door gratis drankjes tijdens diner en een upgrade. Het diner was verrassend goed en lekker. Kamer zat vol met muggen, erg vervelend. Hiernaast in vloerbedekking vele haren van vorige gasten, een kapotte sprei, kalk aangeslagen douche. Echter personeel erg vriendelijk en hulpvaardig. Ontbijt eveneens prima.
