We stayed here for 5 nights the end of March. Our room had three single beds which was good for the 3 of us. The only problem with the bed was the cover was small and it didn't cover me when on my side. That combined with the lack of control over the heat made for some chilly nights.
The room and its furnishings were pretty worn. One morning we ran out of both toilet tissue and facial tissue. We made a call and we were quickly supplied with tissue. It would have been nice if the housekeeping checked the levels of such things more regularly.
As mentioned on other posts the hotel is quite a maze. One can exit the hotel near your room but the only way to come in is the main entrance. When loaded with groceries or luggage it can be quite the haul back to your room.
There is a grocery store right next to the hotel that was a good source of picnic supplies for us. Too bad there were no fridges or microwaves in the room.
We went to the pub one night and found it very quiet. We did not eat at the restaurant and cannot comment on it. The pool, sauna and steam room were nice.
The front desk staff was very helpful. I hit a rock in my travels and got a flat tire-bent the rim. She phoned serveral places for me to find someone who could repair the tire. The shop in town fixed the tire for 7 euro. Sure beat buying a new one for 75!
Overall not a bad place, but nothing to write home about either.
