We stayed here for three nights with a SuperValu deal. The hotel is nice and homely but is in need of refurbishment and more attention to cleaning.
All the staff were very friendly and helpful. We ate in the bar the first night and both ordered steak, one well done and the other medium-rare. Both steaks were cooked well done, I brought it to the attention of the waitress but also told her that it was very tasty and I was happy to eat it. I then asked if the brownie was made in house and enquired about the ingredients as I have an allergy. She assured me that the brownies were made in house and would check with the chef re the ingredients. She came back to tell me that the chef had read the box and that the brownies would not be suitable. The box….of the brownies made in house……! We had dinner in the restaurant the last night, there was a tour staying in the hotel dining at the same time, we were given the same menu as the tour which I found to be very basic, the portions were quite small and the dining room was very crowded with tables very close together.
We had breakfast in the hotel every morning; it was hot and well-cooked buffet and was kept well stocked throughout the morning. There was a good selection of bread and good supply of pastries along with a good selection of juices.
For the price we paid it was good value and the location is wonderful. We had a room with a bay window overlooking the sea which was really nice and a Queen size bed which was very comfortable. I would stay here again but I don’t think I’d be willing to pay the hotel’s full prices.
