The food was overpriced and only ok. The staff was wonderful and extremely friendly. I highly recommend the entertainment. We were on a Tuesday and Wednesday night and the musicians were very talented. The steak was small and certainly not worth the 20 euros. The tortellini was bland and only ok.

Stayed as a couple for 2 nights March 2017. Service & Staff were ok but we did not have any special requests etc. Room & bathroom were clean but very small. If the bedside lockers were any bigger they would not fit. You certainly would not want to be lounging around your room for very long. Sleep quality was very...

My twin & I had our Birthday party in the Blue Haven Hotel on the 4th of March. There was a group of 20 of us going for dinner. Even though it was an extremely busy night in the hotel from the minute we arrived I felt so welcomed & special. The Bistro was very cozy, our table was beautifully...

Went to the Blue Haven on a hen last weekend. There were over 40 girls on the hen. From the moment we arrived in the hotel for afternoon tea we were greeted with a smile and a glass of prosecco from Erika. Afternoon tea was very tasty, afterwards we had the cube activity in the hotel. That night we came...

Myself & my husband stayed here for 3 nights. The staff were lovely, they couldn't do enough for us. On the down side, no parking only on the street, and as we pulled up to check in to the hotel, a traffic warden was looking in the window at us. We asked at reception about parking and were told there...
