First impression is very positive and the reception staff are efficient friendly and very polite. I have been staying here on and off for the last 2 weeks and have had a chance to sample 3 different types of rooms (sngl, dbl and superior dbl) and all are adequate to really quite nice and stylish. Beds are large and comfortable and the shower or bathrooms (depending on the room) are quite spacious. The downside is that it could do with a little maintenance, a few licks of paint here and there...and the rooms are badly soundproofed if at all. My girlfriend thought someone had walked into my room while we were on the phone together...it was the room next door but you could hear it that loudly and clearly.
The BIG disappointment is the restaurant - breakfast looks a lot better than it is. Stick to the cakes and yoghurt because all the rest is really awful, stale bread and pastries, inedible scrambled eggs and bacon full of cartilage, etc... I also ate there for dinner and that was absolutely terrible. I was on my own and ordered a grilled fish with roasted vegetables. 42 minutes later (I could time it precisely because I had just received a message on my phone as I was ordering!) the whole fish comes out on a trolley to be promptly destroyed by the head waiter...he managed to leave 1/2 the fish on the bones, literally pile the remaining mashed fish on to the plate with a tiny splash of olive oil then handed me a side plate of chips...not what I asked for. he saw my reaction and asked me if all was ok...I said no, this is not a grilled fish with roasted vegies, this is a mash of basic fish n chips! He did offer to change the fish for another dish which by this stage I was already late for a meeting so I simply pointed out that the fish was not the problem! He was completely unphased and continued to swagger his way around the restaurant making sure that people took note of his high-importance. Why would you pay €18 for a plate of mediocre fish n chips?
I am trying hard not to let the restaurant experience ruin my whole stay in the hotel...I still have 2 nights left there...
