    Very good

    The whole hotel is very praiseworthy: staff, rooms, cleanliness, parking, breakfast, everything good to very good.

    The hotel is located about half an hour by train from the centre. But as the local traffic is very unpunctual, it takes about one hour. But otherwise there is nothing else to criticize.

    Great

    Great location, walking distance to the tram (PTV) approx. 5 min. from there approx. 30 min. to the centre, parking directly in front of the room, very good price-performance ratio

    Female staff at breakfast (although still open for 1 hour, no free choice of table, tables have been set for the evening), Wi-Fi too weak

    Great

    Swimming pool in the garden, washing machine, dryer. Close to the small station, from there you could go to Melbourne. We arrived late, but still got a delicious dinner. Breakfast was also very good.

    To buy a train ticket you first have to buy a "starting ticket" - that was a bit expensive, because we couldn't use it later on. besides, it was not obvious where these things were - somehow we asked around.

    Great

    The staff were all courteous, helpful, patient and friendlyThe

    I felt the family room was not suitable for 3 adults and 2 toddlers and table is not enough for the amount of people/person nor seating. Because the room is quite long in length perhaps a bigger tv would be more suitable. It would be nice for customers to understand the difference between a twin and a double, this confuses me. However I appreciate the staff on duty for their assistance and it was very late when I requested for a change of rooms from a double to a family/triple room
