This was obviously once a really good hotel but, ironically for somewhere marketing itself as a romantic destination, you can feel the love has gone.
It's not terrible, it's just not very good.
Pros - look of the building, lovely stone vaulted rooom. Location is ideal too.
Cons - Rock hard bed (and I like a hard bed but this hurt to lie on your side!) on a really cheap bargain bedstead.
11 Euro a night to park (more than the airport charged).
Hot water only intermittently.
