For its class, the hotel is and has everything you need. Location, great restaurant, good service, clean and tidy and the wifi was always good in my case. I couldn't ask for much for, except from some bacon at breakfast, which didn't have the 3-4 days I was there. (well it did on the eggs - but I am used... More

Positives: Best hotel breakfast for quite some time. Great location. Positive service. Negatives: Getting old. Wet floor after shower. Too soft bed. I saw something about a refurbishment coming up, so that will improve.

We had three nights here with 2 teenagers in a family room. Typical older Scandic property, could do with decorating and updates to furniture although definitely not the worst have been in. Staff were all really nice and helpful. Breakfast was excellent. We used the attached restaurant for one evening and it was very good.

Basically, the room was just like any other hotelroom, noting to complain about. Also the receptions was friendly and helpful. There was a safe parking place for the motorbike. But what really was excllent, was the breakfast. In fact, it would take several mornings to taste everything. Within one morning, you simply can't taste everything.

I'm baffled with the high score this hotel has, it doesn't deserve anything above 2 stars, and those two comes from working A/C, the water pressure (the temperature doesn't hold, but the pressure is constant), and location. The staff was off-putting, had no desire to help you, and some of them were outright arrogant. The third floor is not accessible... More
