The positives were the staff were friendly at reception, the room was nice and big as it was a delux room and the location.
The negatives were, we didn't book a delux room but asked for an upgrade when checking in, the delux room was what you would expect as standard room for a 4 star hotel. Our friends didn't ask for an upgrade and their standard room was tiny, they were not a bit happy with that!! The bar was expensive and when we arrived back to the hotel at night, it was like the Spanish Inquisition for us to be able to get a drink from the residents bar. The irish breakfast was cold which was very disappointing.
I would not stay here again!
