Stayed for one night. Room was quite small but had been recently refurbished and was superb value for cost. Staff super friendly -all spoke fluent English - and highly efficient, always willing to help. Breakfasr options were good and we really enjoyed spending time in the bar, watching the activity outside. Other pluses include free wifi and ideal location for... More

good service .. clean ... nice bedroom and bathroom, breakfast was an extra we didn't take but heard others raving about the quality of the food. Perfect for one or two nights stay, a well run establishment. Only negative although being, although it was next to the train station, it was away from the old town where the atmosphere seemed...

Dear Pamela, I am glad that you spent a lovely stay in our establishment!

Anyway, I hope that... More

Stayed one night and found room clean and comfortable. This is a surprisingly quaint hotel in an old stone building. The stone walls do make for quirky rooms but the hotel has fitted them in neatly,and the bathroom in particular is modern and well equipped. The nespresso machine is a nice touch. Front of house staff are pleasant and well... More

It does not happen that often, sadly. But receptionists with real passion and dedication for their job "forced" me to mark up this hotel from a 3 to a 4. In terms of hardware, the best part of this hotel is probably its receptionist area. I'd be really reluctant to call it a "lobby" due to the limited space but... More

The rooms may be a bit small and in need of a refurb but frankly the location is so convenient for transport links, and the staff so friendly, that for the price we paid, we really have nothing to complain about. Breakfast was very satisfying too!

Very helpful staff who quickly changed our room when we found the A/C was not working in our first allocated room. Very convenient to Railway station (about 300 meters), old nicely refurbished building with very small staircase, elevator (squeeze for 2 people with luggage), bathroom and bedroom. Well equipped and comfortable bed. Did not have breakfast. Good value. Hotels.com website... More

It is difficult to stand out in the business overnight stay market but Best Western Royal St Jean achieves this. It ticks all the requisite boxes: clean modern rooms, air conditioning, good wifi and a superb location - the distance from the hotel to the station is less than that from the station entrance to the platform. Only in the... More

Located by train station. Easy walk to the town centre. Many fine restaurants recommended by the hotel on our approximate thirty minute walk. Basically followed tram tracks. Hotel clean hospitable and freindly. Stay here again next time for sure.

Excellent location for railway station, but not the best to walk through. The hotel was quite small, with a quirky spiral staircase, and a modern, comfortable breakfast area. The only lift was tiny and would only take 2 people at a time, or one person + luggage, but it worked fine. The reception staff were very friendly and helpful and... More
