Myself and my husband stayed here as we were attending an event in the city. We got an extremely warm welcome from a lovely man who advised us of their customer parking and checked us in. He also called a taxi for us to the quay which cost €5 on the way there and €6 on the way back. Very happy with him and our room was lovely. The bathroom was modern and spotless. The room was medium sized and perfect for our needs. Lots of hangers in the wardrobe and tea and coffee facilities. Bed was comfortable. One negative- breakfast. In fairness to the blonde lady with short hair, 6 tables came within 10 mins of each other. But the service was nothing short of awful. She never came to take our order so after watching others do it I also went up to her and asked for some breakfast. She asked would I like a full breakfast to which I said yes please. There was no mention of how would we like our eggs etc. She was hovering around topping up milk etc but I never saw her come to any table to take an order or check how the food was.There was no menu. There was a self service station for tea coffee and toast and a selection of cereals. Myself and my husband were the first to take a seat in the dining room and the last to be served breakfast. I wouldn't mind if the service was slow if we were served in order of first come first served. We were a full hour in the dining room from taking a seat to finishing breakfast. The lady said sorry for the wait but everyone came at once. I just thought it was unorganised and I felt uncomfortable having to stand up and walk over to her to ask for some breakfast please. Breakfast was okay. Eggs overcooked, bacon was delicious. I would stay again but breakfast service needs to be addressed. Thank you.
