Ok. Stayed here on a business trip recently. Old part of hotel as you enter is full of charm and character, staff friendly and accomodating.
The good points about this hotel. The leisure centre is outstanding, great gym equipment, amazing sauna, one of the best I have used and there is a really relaxed feel about the centre. The rooms are nice, comfortable and well appointed, the showers could be better.
The bad things about this hotel. The food is poor in general, it smacks of a chef who is lazy and not too bothered about what he is doing. I ordered a steak which was ok quality and cooked as I asked for it. However when I asked if the chips were homemade I was told they were frozen, this is supposed to be a four star hotel? So I asked for a baked potato, I was told they had roast. They came out just above cold. The steak was sloppily presented on a bed of mushrooms and onions. The decor in the bar and restaurant are terrible, cold and uninviting. There has been no attempt to merge the old with the new. The breakfast spread the next morning was dreadful. A section of tables with the worst choice of food I have seen in any hotel for a long time. There was little or no choice. Breakfast looked like a complete after thought. The black cups, bowls, bowls and plates really need to be replaced with white.
When paying €115 a night you would expect far higher standards than this.
Over all ok. Nothing special.
