Apart from this, it was pretty grim. I won't go into great detail, suffice to say, it needs a complete refit and that would be the most... More

The restaurant is full of atmosphere. The food was really good and the staff were helpful and friendly. When you have eaten your food you can explore the station and museum. Its definitely on my list to go again.
