It was an ideal location for me as it was only a short taxi ride from the airport. Although the airport taxi driver charged me 14 euros, when the hotel receptionist organised the return taxi for me, it cost only 6 euros. Although the location is nearer to the airport than the actual city, there is a small shopping centre 2 minutes’ walk away with some nice cafes and also regular buses to take you into town, or anywhere else you might want to go. There was also ample car parking if you travelled by car, and taxis weren’t too expensive if ordered at the hotel reception.
I found every member of staff very pleasant and helpful but not intrusive, so perfect for me. The reception staff were more than willing to assist with any queries we might have - directions, etc. They were also quite happy to open the gym early to suit our plans. There was a limited choice of evening menu for vegetarians but the restaurant staff were quite happy to adapt the menu to suit my daughter’s taste, as they cooked everything from fresh, even did a slight variation on the dessert. The food was presented in a very pleasing way, more expected with a 5* hotel. Again the restaurant staff were very attentive but not intrusive.
The room and bathroom were a really good size for a standard room, nice, bright and modern, with everything you need from a separate bath & walk-in shower, toiletries and hairdryer in the bathroom to a desk and internet connection for your laptop, and it’s always nice to be able to make yourself a cup of coffee first thing and have somewhere to sit and relax.
I have stayed in 5* hotels and this hotel reached that sort of standard in a lot of ways and, in certain areas, the hotel was better than some of the 5* I have stayed in. Although, we didn’t have time to use the Spa area, we were told it was really excellent.
I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending this hotel to my family and friends. I cannot think of anything negative to say, apart from my stay was too short!! I would stay here again.
