We stayed overnight before flying to the USA from Dublin on a B&B basis with "free" use of the thermal suite.
Most of this much vaunted thermal suite was out of order and frankly rather grubby, but we did get it to ourselves!
At dinner we chose the "all day" earlybird menu.
There were only about three other tables being used in the massive dining room. Perhaps this should have told us something! Only two of the three main course options were available, the chicken being off. The lamb dish was perhaps the worst thing I have ever paid for in many years! Tough, overcooked, tasteless and sawdust like. The Salmon option was no better. We chose to skip dessert and walk to the shops for an ice cream!
The upstairs bar was "closed" so the few customers were told to to downstairs to the alternative bar. The bar staff then had to go to the upstairs bar to get the drinks!
Breakfast was equally as poor as the previous nights dinner. The final straw was the attempt to short change me upon check out!
However cheap the deal is, this place is just not worth it
