On first impressions the foyer looks nice, modern but a bit dark. The car park is not ideal as the access ramp is narrow and the lift system to come back to the rooms is very poorly designed. Within the hotel the lifts cause confusion for a lot of guests and I would recommend staying in the main hotel block for ease of access or for anyone with children or mobility problems. The rooms are fine, no more. The website makes them look more luxurious than they are. Furnishings seem cheap, definitely not 4 star. The balcony, with views of a petrol station, did not have any chairs. The lighting in the room was very poor. The bed was comfortable and bathroom adequate.. The bar looked promising but lacked any real atmosphere. Music was very poor - out of tune musicians on both nights we stayed. There is however plenty of live music available in other pubs nearby. Room service charge of €5 seems excessive. There was a queue for breakfast and we were asked to wait for about 5-10 minutes in the dark and uncomfortable foyer. The breakfast itself was buffet style and just average. Juices were concentrated and selection of breads very poor. Fruit too was poor. Reception staff were pleasant. Good location within 2 minutes walking distance of town centre. Would however take a lot of convincing to go back ...
