A bit of a disappointment food wise in bar area and breakfast. Pointless addition of hair salon when it couldn’t facilitate an appointment on 2 occasions. Cold reception area. Overall in comparison with other hotels ie ferrycarrig very disappointing. Way overpriced for 2 night stay with no evening meal included. Definitely a good case for changing the 9% vat these hotels have been enjoying for sometime now.

Nice hotel

The hotel was reasonable value for money. However the bathroom was dated. The spa also was poor, steam room and sauna not warm and pool busy. It was a good location however most of the hotels in the city are more central. The food and drink was over priced.

Pros: the pool,steam room,sauna and jacuzzi
Cons: everything, staff were very pleasant and helpful
musty smell in the bar. overall the hotel needs to be updated. colour scheme dull and drab. Not happy with breakfast choice of cereal limited, orange juice sour. Went to the pool and only one key for a locker available at the reception desk, everyone should be able to get a key for the locker..
