I have stayed in this hotel on numerous occasions for business purposes. I can only say that each visit, I felt less impressed with the service. The final stay was in June. I had booked for myself and three work colleagues. One member was booked for an smoking room. On check in, there was no record of our booking. The reception was quite sharp and not at all helpful. We mentioned that we stayed here on a regular basis and had an email with our booking confirmation. It was obvious that they were busy with other members of our organisation (who normally use this hotel for business also). We eventually got rooms and were booked in. That evening we decided to dine in the bar - we were not impressed with the food and the price. Overall we felt that this hotel needs to review its prices and the standard of service. We checked out the next morning and agreed that we would not be returning. Since then we have found a hotel close by, cost €30 less for double room and breakfast. The service is excellent - and most important, they were delighted to have our business. We passed on their name to other work colleagues who also were both impressed with the price and service.
Overall, hotels need to step up to the challenge - the days of having a monopoly are long gone.
