Excellent price for a triple room. Hotel always lovely and warm and comfy beds. Rooms are dated but renovations underway. Tv only had one channel Tuned in which was a problem. Mentioned at reception in checkout and staff member said that someone had mentioned it the previous day so should have been sorted. Overall booked for price and was excellent value and did the job

Nice hotel

Pros: Leisure complex is really good.
Cons: Food is Ok, I did notice many just had soup, I think there is a clue there. Is it too fancy, too expensive, bit on the cold side? Its hard to please
Location: Its actually quite good for the town about 10 Euro ride. It does have fabulous Gardens
A lovely little Hotel, The leisure complex is really good.

Overnight stay

Everything was fine. Quiet room and a decent breakfast. Spa was excellent but didn't know about swimming caps (good idea) being obligatory and would have brought our own had we known.
