This hotel is very very dated. Not a four star hotel at all. The hotel itself is clean and warm which is all one really needs and breakfast is fine. Dinner however is appalling. You cannot take outside food into the room unless you pay a fee for "extra cleaning". The wifi in room is fine. My toilet did not...

The hotel is very nice, very clean, warm and comfort. The staff was wonderful, attentive and caring. The room was big enough with a small storage room and a very big bathroom! Very comfortable beds. Rich breakfast.

An old style motoring hotel from the days of porters and martini cocktails. Clearly seen better days but it was comfortable and spacious and although dated, everything worked. The staff were courteous and the garage arrangements superb for us with a lift into the hotel from the basement garage. We has a valuable car load we needed secure. We were...

i would recommend the hotel to people who are not afraid of cold room or noisy conditioner in winter. the location (20 minutes on foot fron the center) and the price were adequate. the bus stop is right here

The hotel itself is a bit dated, but I was fully appreciative of the customer service I received. I lost my room card and they replaced it with no fuss. Breakfast was tasty, and had all the necessary items that made it acceptable. The food was great, but all eggs and bacon were served cold. The afternoon and evening meals...

This is far from a 4 star hotel. Rooms are basic, dated and depressing, the hotel is in desperate need of a refurbishment. On the positive side it was clean. Customer service also disappointing. I would rate this hotel as 2*.

I thought it was pretty cool (retro) to be in this time machine. The hotel was well maintained, but it was dated - is that a bad thing? I thought it made the stay interesting. I did not walk to locations in downtown, took a cab. We had drinks at the bar when we arrived (we were only ones there)....
