Good Afternoon, We have had very positive feedback from the Bagatelle concert and am sorry to hear you didn't enjoy your evening with us. As a general practise we do not restrict dancing at our concerts and apologise the dancing restricted your view. In relation to the other matters you have mentioned I would ask you to contact myself directly at the hotel when I would be happy to discuss them further. I look forward to hearing from you, Regards Louise.

Hello Travelseeker2014 Thank you for taking the time in sharing your experience. Whilst we are delighted to read that you found the check in very quick and that you had an enjoyable breakfast the following morning we are disappointed that you found your room average as all our bedrooms have been recently refurbished to the highest standards. We hope to have the pleasure of welcoming you back to the hotel in the near future. Patrick Mckerr

Yes breakfast is included in the price. It is not when it says room only. The breakfast was included when we stayed and was of good quality, choice and you could have extra portions if you wished. Highly recommend this hotel.

Hi , it depends which country is your credit card. If you are euro is always better to pay in the local currency. They try many times to tell you do you want to pay in euros, we have a good rate, NO. Is not true. They take lot more in your currency then in their one. This is credit card concern. If you pay cash just check what is the best rate of exchange from your country, and have a look in few of your banks or buero of exchange.. pay attention to the northern irish pound. It is completely legal , but in England in many places not accepted. Enjoy your holiday
