We were looking for a hotel away from the centre but with easy access and parking. The from was very good, the staff very helpful and the whole atmosphere was relaxing. The breakfast buffet was more than ample. With regard to getting into the city, it was easy by either car or tram. The only 'problem' is the very roundabout... More
