There are a lot of good points: the location (very near the tram station), the room (spacious and comfortable, including the bathroom), the buffet breakfast(good variation and tasty) etc...
One and only: there was no tea pot in the room, which was a bad surprise to us, Japanese. Almost all the hotels and lodges in Japan, the USA, Canada, New Zealand and so on have one for guests to use. We took some Japanese tea packs with us, which was just a mockery.
The location was excellent. The breakfast was very good with plenty of choice.
The early check-out time of 10am - it was a struggle to get teenagers up and fed and ready to leave by 10am.
We really liked the pool, sauna etc. It was small but very convenient. A big plus for us. Reason to stay at the hotel.
we didn't know you had to make a reservation for dinner beforehand but got good directions to a perfect restaurant in town.
Breakfast was very good
Staff were not very service minded Location was quite a long walk into the centre Swimming pool was very small
Clean, good service, nice swimming pool for kids
