I was pleasantly surprised and is a lot nicer than the website gives it credit for. We stayed midweek and enjoyed it. The breakfast was good but the bar food was just average. The location was very central. It was a very reasonably priced three night stay which included breakfast for 119 euro.

Room was lovely, very clean with tea & coffee making facilities & also water supplied. Overall hotel was spotlessly clean. We also chose to eat here. They did a fantastic value menu for €25 PP...

Had dinner in hotel restaurant - i ordered a veggie lasagne. It was not a great size portion and a little expensive to dine there overall. Breakfast was very good.... More
