            Nice Hotel,we were attending a wedding there.Not happy that everyone was charged different prices.My friend was charged 89 euro for double room and i was charged 126 euro.Other couples were charged all sorts of different prices.

            The pool was nice and warm and changing area was lovely and clean.

            Food was ok but not for the price being charged

          • Older travelers
            6.2

            Convenience of being centrally situated and being in reach of both the East and West of the country

            Dinner in the evenings was completely ruined by what can only be described as " The family from hell" and their children being permitted to run wild with no restriction from staff.

            The room and adjoining sitting room design and cleanliness.

            Check out time. Stayed after attending a wedding - possibly consider a later check-out time of 1.30pm-2pm for guests who stay after weddings and attend the residents bar.

            The only thing I likes about it was the bed sheets ... very soft ...

            Only stayed for a wedding and I dont think I would stay again .. The room was dirty , the bar I had a drink in before the wedding was very smelly with all the fish cooking , very bad ... The price for a room is way over the top for what you get ... No breackfast included for 160 euros wow whats that all about .... only stayed there because I had my daughter with me and her friend and I knew if they wanted to go to bed they could ...
