6/10 Good

Location is good and easily accessible from bus and railway station. However, the room was on 3rd floor and property does not have lift / porter. Further, rooms are very small and owner is little rude.

Not worth the money
Old hotel with pretty old Furniture and Equipments. it seems they never upgraded. its quite sad to see that such a busy hotel is not spending money on upgrades. they can still keep the old status of building but atleast upgrade inside. Paid more than other hotels but it was waste of money, I suggest to book something else. Breakfast was wonderful with wonderful staff at the Restaurant Hotel has parking Location is good.

Simple but comfortable, not the room you see
We were very unlucky with the room, the rooms advertised as images on Hotels.com are only the ones in the main building, there is a huge 2nd building with very old and simple room. There was a curling group they were busy with and forgot us. No time to serve us in the restaurant. The sauna is in another building, we reserved it (as we had to with COVID) but they didn't turn it on although we specifically asked for it. They kind of forgot to serve us due to the big group. I guess we were unfortunate to stay there that night. But definitely be mindful of rooms that are advertised on Hotels.com, is not the one you get!

Beautiful hotel, nice service, clean, but It has poor soundproofing so you could hear the street noice, people in hall areas, people moving directly above (floors are quite squicky). It also felt a bit on a colder side in the room despite heater working properly.
