This is a nice enough hotel, well situated, close to the train station and the center of this small town. The reception area is small but functional and well presented, the staff on reception without exception were friendly, knowledgable, helpfull, and welcoming. The restaurant serves typically continental breakfast which was fine, and if weather permits can be taken in front of the hotel alongside the beautiful river which is on the doorstep. In the evening the food is of good quality, tasty and well presented- it is a little expensive, but then, the whole country appears to be trying very hard to price itself out of the average persons budget. The rooms are what made me give a 3/5 as they are just a bit too small, the shower i had was no more than "usable" as to turn around inside it was not really an option. On top of that there is no air conditioning, this was a bit of an issue as the temperature was reasonable and humidity was high. There is tea and coffee making facilities in the room, but bear in mind that they, like the tv are above your feet at the end of the bed as the room lacks any other space. There are alot of rooms in this hotel and possibly the ones further down the hall were of a better standard than mine. All in all an average hotel, but like the title says..Enjoyed my stay.
