I paid 141 euro for 1 nights stay I was on my own. I went down for breakfast and was told I was room only!!! And was asked if I would like to see the menu. I declined and checked out. Not a very helpful staff and no empathy whatsoever. Last time I will be staying there.

Nice near to town

Well when I went to sit down to have something to eat I got a menu of one off the staff, after deciding what I wanted nobody came near me for 35 mins. I ended up having to go up to the bar and asking the bar man to order the food. I sat back down and didn't receive my food til an hour and twenty minutes later, all I ordered was a chicken bap. My wife and kids had already eating a couple of hours before me and paid her Bill which she had the receipt and was asked 3 times by different girls had she paid for the food, very embarrassing for her
