We stayed at this hotel with another couple on Sat 12th July. Beautiful hotel with lovely gardens. We arrived at the hotel 15mins earlier than the check in time of 2pm to find that neither of our rooms were ready, which wasn't the end of the world, as it was such a nice day we sat outside admiring the beautiful gardens. At 2.15pm I went back to reception to find one of our rooms ready. We left our luggage in the one room which was in the new part of the hotel. The rooms were large, spotlessly clean (well done to the housekeepers) and well equipped with flat screen TV, tea & coffee making facilities, iron with ironing board, hairdryer etc. After walking around this fabulous city we returned at 7pm and checked into our own room which was just as wonderful. We had a 2 course meal in the restaurant as part of our Travelzoo package, lots of choice and cooked perfectly, the 4 of us all enjoyed our food which arrived piping hot and very, very tasty. We all agreed the next morning how large and comfortable our beds were. Breakfast was tasy with plenty of choice, 3 of us enjoyed a full cooked breakfast. We did enjoy our stay at the hotel and would return, unfortunately the lack of staff let the hotel down, the staff they have could more friendly and helpful. Also agree with other reviewers that their bar definitely needs some attention, there was a pump for Guiness but they only have cans! also a minimal choice of spirits. Forgot to say earlier the hotel is in a fantastic location right in the City centre.
