Liked the friendly staff. The clean new hotel in central location. The reception area was inviting and that was always staffed. The room was good and great that it had a coffee machine. I tried the room service menu which worked well.

Please note that while I can't comment on a shuttle service, the train station is not walking distance (about a 25 min walk) nor is it on an easy bus route. Your best bet is a taxi or Uber.
