Oh my God what a disappointment this two night family stay was.
Our family room stunk of mould and damp (room 401 for your info) and was dirty and dated. If you need a shower cap though then this is the room for you, as it is well supplied with at least 10. However, If it's a bar of soap you need, steer clear of 401 as it had none.
The bad experience continued in the bar as the barman has the habit of placing his fingers down the inside of the glass to lift it towards the tap for filling (I only had the one). Whats more I was left waiting at least 10 minutes to be served while other customers who had just arrived in, got served first, and for no good reason other than just pure lack of professionalism by the bar staff.
The young man who made up our room after the first night neglected to straighten out the sheets before he pulled up the duvet to hide his laziness (and still no soap).
The breakfast was okay nothing special. Although I did have to attract the attention of staff twice to beg a coffee. For for the lack of staff - there were loads of them, just zero interest or I don't know lack of training.
At €220 per night (August 2013) not a good idea. This was not a nice experience at all.
