Its a lovely place to stay for a romantic night or weekend. Lovely rooms, nice restaurant. Bad points: after a few moments of us checking into our room, their staff kept knocking on the door offering us water. Whether they genuinly were worried of us being dehydrated (although mini bar does supply you with (gasp) a little quater bottle at 3.50 euro - or simply were trying to sell some more (we were unclear whether this was complementary, so decided not to drink it eventually;-) ) - either way, it was quite annoying. The strawberries in chocolate upon our arrival were not so numerous as one would like them to be and although they have a lot of 'naughty' funny items in the mini fridge (like camasutra kit and fruity condoms, etc) - they clearly didn't think it through til the end, as at the check out they manage to actually ask you whether you've used any of these items and which ones were those. Luckily enough, we didn't - but I just imagined my horror of having to recite used items in numerical order if I did, with people standing (also waiting to check out) behind me!:-)
Overall, its an 'ok' romantiky place to stay - thei bar is a bit 'strange' for want of a better word, slightly smelly and a bit like Lilly Bordello VIP room - but quite nice nevertheless. Breakfast is not included (which is annoying) and makes it quite an expensive stay if you were to order one (around 27 eur for a full irish one). Good point - I really thought it would be an excellent venue for a small wedding or a brilliant place to wow your girlfriend (boyfriend)!
