Staff great, room OK

Pros: Staff
This was booked for proximity to train station - for that it was excellent, less than a 5 minute walk. Staff were very helpful and efficient - they went out of their way to arrange for us to store our bikes away. Rooms, however, are very 'functional'. They kind of work as somewhere you arrive and go to bed, but not much more to say about them. I suppose this is the IBIS brand so you get what you expect. But, all in all, not for me...
