I stayed here during a recent retreat for business. Overall I was really impressed and enjoyed the hotel. It’s part of a chain of hotels (Explorer) which I have never heard of or stayed at before, but for sure would consider in the future. Had the location been slightly better would have given it 5 stars.
In terms of service, I found it very great. Check-in/check-out was a breeze and there is a good bar with friendly service from staff who were willing to stay open late even though we were the only group there. There’s a good range of top local beers as well! Also it seems they do bike rentals in the summer - I saw some very modern looking mountain bikes hanging in lockers, and if I'd had some more time this would have been high on my to do list.
The rooms are very clean, well laid out with a strong Wi-Fi connection. I stayed on the top floor and there was a nifty rooftop window which gave really nice light and had electronic shutters that ensured a good dark room despite early morning light. Shower pressure was great (sometimes a problem in Europe on multi-level buildings) and the bed comfortable.
For those without a car, the location may be a little out of the way. But you're within 5-15 minutes driving of all attractions, so its pretty convenient. There's also a McDonalds right next door which may or may not be an advantage depending on your culinary tastes.
Overall, a good hotel for a reasonable price. If I'm back in the area I would for sure consider staying here again and will look out for the Explorer chain of hotels in the future!
