As others have said, this hotel is lovely inside(who cares about the outside). Room was on the 3rd floor and very modern. The only gripe we had was that the pillows were more like cushions and my head kept falling off it in the night and also no teaspoon or milk in the room. Beds extremely comfortable, shower and bathroom brilliant.
Now comes the nasty bit. For our evening meal we opted for the buffet which was 25 € per head and we were asked for this before eating, but we were absolutely appalled with what was on offer - either salad or soup to start, only one main course to choose from which was beef curry and noodles, fruit salad, cake, or chocolate mousse for desert. We were told by the waitress that had we come a bit earlier we could have had lasagne too but this had all gone. We complained and the manager was sent over. She agreed it was not good enough and gave us a refund of half the amount we paid. The hotel need to sort this out but I suppose there is a captive market with no decent eateries around the area. Breakfast next morning was certainly not up to scratch either with very little to choose from if you didn't fancy meat, cheese and salad for breakfast. Just glad we were only there one night and shan't be rushing back.
