Got a present of one night BnB with dinner and wine for two. The carpark system is a joke for this hotel. Its privately owned. Says its free if between 6pm and 10am. Now when the standard hotel check in is from 2pm and check out at 12 I just think its extremely cheeky to have to pay to park at a hotel that is in the middle of the town with no alternative parking.
On check in,it was booked under my name but the receptionist didn't advise on the meal or wine. When I'd checked in,I had to enquire how I book the restaurant so she made out a voucher.that was done and then had lo enquire about the wine. If I hadnt asked then I wouldn't have known about the voucher system! I think when its paid up front then it should be just ready for you,because if you didn't then it makes it awkward later on when going for the meal.
There was 2pillows on the double bed. Flat as pancakes?the mattress was lumpy. Think we slept about two hrs.
Rooms are comfortable but outdated I think.
Breakfast was really good and the restaurant served a lovely dinner.
Overall the hotel is ok,wouldn't stay there again. It was a great deal other than that I wouldn't stay there.
Oh back to parking....on check out I had to pay 10euro the park at the hotel. Iv never paid that for any 5star hotel! Plus what's more is I found out that parking was included in the package. So again the same receptionist who checked us in didn't bother checking to see if it was in the package. When a. Hotel booking says complimentary parking. I'd think it should be free! I know its not a fortune but it left a taint because the receptionist was highly incompetent at her job.
