Stayed here for one night. Fantastic rooms on the seafront almost. Easily accessible car park. We had a lovely dinner and the following day had a fantastic breakfast. A great hotel with very friendly staff. There are many restraints nearby if you fancy eating out but the food at the hotel was fantastic.

Great location but a tad on the noisy side so requesting a quiet room you may get one towards the rear of the hotel. Just opposite the railway station and the tram station is just 3-4 minutes walk away its location is excellent. Right opposite the locks for the inner "basin" where there are some pretty impressive boats moored. A... More

The rooms may be rather small, but still have a bath available. Comfy bed. Nice location, nearby the station and the yacht harbour. Noisy by day but rather quiet during the night. Very good breakfast which attracts non-guests too. Excellent coffee!

Great location on the Visserquay just opposite the station. But it is noisy from traffic and the bridges going up to allow yachts in and out. The room was very hot. There seemed to be hot water pipes under the bathroom flooring which kept it hot. You could open the double glazing windows but then you enjoyed the noise! On... More

The staff was friendly and helpful. The hotel offers single rooms with good space. The breakfast consists of an amazing buffet, with different sorts of bread, brioches, juice, etc, and good coffee, all this for a very good price. Free wi.fi is available.
