After reading other mixed reviews and seeing pictures I was sceptical!
It was lovely!!
Bus 16 straight from the airport stops outside the hotel.
The same bus we got on the following day into the city centre. 8 minutes to the airport and about 15 minutes direct to the city centre and stops directly outside the site seeing red bus tourist information centre.
On arrival we asked for an upgrade which was available.
Staff were pleasant and friendly and happy to help with a pizza delivery to the room as we had arrived late.
The room was spacious, biggest king size bed I've ever seen.
The window looked out onto a rooftop (plants or flowers could be put on their to make it more aesthetically pleasing).
A few small cosmetic issues, paint unfinished and shower head came out an unflattering hole in the tiles. I dropped my towel on the floor and it then had hairs over it so more cleaning needed in the bathrooms.
Bar area was welcoming and served a decent meal at a good price.
After a long day site seeing the spa was amazing!
The spa and leisure centre is next to the hotel (seperate building). Brand new and stunning!
The gym was important for my partner who trains in a heavy weight gym, he was particularly impressed with the equipment. The swimming pool was fantastic (although you have to pay €3 for a swimming cap). The staff were friendly and helpful. The changing rooms were clean and contemporary. The sauna was good but the steam room was not working. The jacuzzi was romantically lit and pleasant, however, the small times were all coming off (desperately needs maintenance).
Small supermarket next door and breakfast cafe if you are not having the Irish buffet in the hotel. The hotel is actually situated in a nice affluent area, with nice detached houses around (not seen in photos).
The staff were helpful in giving us a late check out due to a late flight and also offered to store our luggage when we went to the spa.
I would 100% recommend. The more pleasant photos are much more representable of the hotel and I would encourage family and friends to stay there over a shabby b&b in the centre.
Overall, I lovely stay! X
