Dated

Very conveniently situated, food good, staff helpful. General decor in public places is worn and dated. Room was clean and spacious. I would have liked a comfy chair.

Convenient location

Good welcome but asked to pay for our accommodation which had been done already on booking. This should have been known by the reception staff. Staff very helpful in letting us breakfast early as we had a train to catch.

Preis-Leistung stimmt nicht

Pros: Frühstücksbuffet und die Lage
Location: Es befindet sich im Stadtzentrum und man kann von da aus gemütlich durch das Städtchen schlendern und zum Beispiel Ausflüge mit dem Boot machen.
Unfreundliches Personal, uraltes Zimmer mit Fenstern, die sich kaum öffnen liessen. Im Bad fand man in den Fliesen und Fensterrahmen überall schwarzen Schimmel. Das Zimmer ist allgemein sehr dunkel/düster und riecht etwas modrig. Die Vorhänge waren zerschlissen. Das Bad war nebst dem Schimmel ziemlich sauber. Das Frühstücksbuffet reichhaltig und gut.
