Stayed 7th Dec. First impressions were lovely all done up for Christmas.
That's where it ended!!!
Checked in at about 6.30pm we has an early flight the next am and had to be up at 4.30am. The first thing I noticed on entering the room was it was freezing. We saw a aircon/heater control on the wall so my husband turned it up hoping the room would be toasty when we got back from something to eat.
Secondly the bed was grubby as in the base board was naked and fraying and the mattress had seen better days. Also the quilts were paper thin and there were no extra blankets in either of the TWO wardrobes???
The bathroom was presented nicely but could also do with a revamp.
Anyway we were there to eat and sleep early, well that was the plan!
We went to the bar which looked lovely got a nice booth and ordered. My pasta dish was just okay and over priced at €17, came with no extras so had to order a salad, mike's burger was dreadful, rubbery meat and cheap processed chips and at €14 it made it even worse!!
Plus they were painfully slow with the food and drink orders.
We went back to our room hoping to hop into bet only to find the room still freezing!!!
Mike rang reception and they turned the heater on from there. I was a bit pissed off as it did not say this anywhere in the room or were we told this at reception upon checking in.
I had to sit with my coat on for a half hr!! The plan to sleep and be fresh for our flight didn't work out either.
Between the noise of other patrons both outside our door, in the next room and believe it or not outside the room window at 2.30am having a drunken rant,plus the heating going off, little sleep was had!!
When we got the wake up call at 4.30am we were wide awake!! They do validate parking for patrons a small plus.
Next early morning flight we will be booking a different hotel, would not recommend.
