    Good

    The room was clean, the beds comfortable (except the pillow, which was like marshmallow) and the restaurant very good.

    The owners of this establishment need to decide whether they want to run a restaurant (good) or a hotel (dire). We stayed there on two non-consecutive nights. The first room they put us in would be called a dog box around here. It was small, hot and stuffy, but you couldn't open the window because of the noise from the street. The bathroom was 1.2 m x 1.2 m (is this legal?). The room itself appeared to have been furnished with rejects from the local tip. The flooring was cheap and nasty mock wood. There was no sound insulation from other rooms. The second room was higher up the building, larger and quieter except for the other guests. A decision needs to be made by the owners, and soon.

    Knoweldgeable and friendly staff. Excellent food. Well located for a variety of day trips - walking in the mountains, steam trains or just visiting major cities.

    Fabulous

    Excellent rate, friendly and helpful staff and good location next to the station.

    The decor is a little tired and the bathroom was extremely small - that said the rate was very good, the breakfast was substantial and the hotel was very clean.

    There was nothing I didliked about this hotel. It was extremely convenient to the central trail station as well as to the downtown shopping area. It has a really fine restaurant.

    The staff was very warm, friendly and helpful. The hotel is located a short distance from the train station - a hub for many alpine rail adventures. The buffet breakfast provides a good variety of choices for both the vegetarian and carnivore. Our room was quiet, clean and comfortable. The decor reminded me of home.

    Breakfast. It was served with large variety of choises The person at the reception was very friendly

    Prise is ridiculously high for the hotel. The room was very very hotel with old furniture, old carpet etch The hotel should be classified as two stars maximum. A real trap for tourists. I would have accepted the standard for not even half of the price. I will not go there anymore and I will discourage people to go there.the rating in Booked.net do not reflect the reality. Very disappointing

    Fabulous

    Friendly and helpful staff in a fairly quiet road, yet a two minute walk to the railway station. The restaurant has exceptional food and is rightly popular with everyone, guests and locals. We look forward to returning when the rooms are modernised with a fresh look.

    Very good

    The location was great and next to the train station-easy walk. The staff was kind and the breakfast was a delight. Our room was nice with a balcony which we used and enjoyed looking out at the mountains. Overall we enjoyed our stay

    The Hotel is loud from sounds of autos and others passing by all through the night.
