Convenient location. Very important- room was clean. A fair rate for the room. Parking is fine when the ticket machine works. Similarly cards for doors have problems. Breakfast is overpriced so we gave that a miss. No air con so opening a window is a bit noisey

Convenient hotel for a nearby wedding.

Pros: Comfortable for a single traveller.
Cons: Bathroom facilities. The shower was not too efficient.
Stayed at The Harlequin for two nights due to its location. I found the staff pleasant and helpful.

Ruhiges Zimmer war gewünscht, bekommen haben wir aber leider direkt an der lauten Durchgangstür mit Ausrichtung zur Hauptstraße.
