    Very reasonable rates per night, less than 10 minutes walk both from train station and from city center. The selection of beers is just ok as is the food, but sure there's plenty of other places to eat and drink down in the town and...More

    Needed a cooked breakfast and came here by chance. Very good breakfast served quickly. Free coffee refills. Seemed popular with local building contractors when I was there. Usually a good recommendation for a full English in itself.

    We stayed for one night as it is near the train station and not expensive. Accommodation was better than expected, clean room, quiet, but lacks air conditioning (it was 30C that day). Watch for heavy luggage - no lift, only stairs to upper rooms.
