Was really disappointed as i was looking forward to a few nice days of relaxation.
I booked a penthouse room and ordered a bottle of prosecco.
First hitch the bottle of proseeco didnt arrive and we had to point that out later!! it did arrive when requested for the next evening.
Secondly a penthouse room you would expect coffe and tea facilities and possibly a decent sized TV which in this day and age is usually the norm for any credible hotel and especially one that deems itself as a 4 star.
Thirdly and the biggest problem as far as i was concerned the street noise was totally unbearable if you enjoy lying in bed until 4.30 in the morning listening to renditions of the latest club classics then by all means this is the place to stay if not stay well clear.
The bar and restaurant are exceptional and worth a visit so stay elsewhere and eat here!!!
I am baffled as to how this Hotel has maintained its 4 star rating its 3 star at best but the food is 4 star.

Back again to this hotel cos I liked it last time. Checked in really late, was made very welcome and got a lovely room. Very quiet and had a very good breaksast and a speedy check out. The hotel room as spacious, very comfortable and it was really all I could ask for. Very central and very good car park across the street

Great location
Very good food menu, to suit all tastes and a great atmosphere in the bar for a nightcap.
Looking forward to returning with the family next time.

First of all I was very disappointed with the room, located on the 1st first floor. It quickly became clear that the standards of a 4-star hotel were badly missing. The room was small, too warm, poorly furnished and overlooking a dirty backyard. There were stains on the bed cover, hair in the bathtub and sink and no shower head.

What was supposed to be a romantic week end, turned into a nightmare on the Saturday night. The music of the night club kept us awake until 2am, there was simply no sound proofing and the noise was the same as if we were on the dance floor. The noise from the club quieted down at around 2am but then our lovely neighbours from the 1st floor, coming back from a hen party, decided to share their excitement with us.

The noise was so bad that we couldn’t get any sleep until 5.30am and that was with the help of earplugs. I’m young, normally sleep very heavily and can surely understand a bit of amusement. But this was simply no respect.

I rang the reception to warn them about the noise and kindly ask them to check the rooms as at this time it was already 3am. I naively assumed in a 4-star hotel the matter could only be treated accordingly.

The reception person didn’t bother to patrol on the floor just to check the noise and didn’t offer any kind of consolation such as earplugs or even offer to change rooms.
I might as well assume this person was deaf, as the noise coming from the first floor would be clearly heard from the reception area. There was no way it couldn’t be noticed.
I simply cannot understand how this behaviour can be tolerated in a 4-star hotel and how the staff decided to ignore the matter when alerted by customers.
Surely the hotel cannot control their customer behaviour but they can at least accordingly address the matter although both my night time call and my comments in the morning have kindly been ignored.

We had gone to this hotel with great trepidation after reading other reviews but to be honest ,our complaints were small.This hotel is not as modern as others but we found it be be spotless and with very friendly staff.Originally we were allocated a room on the first floor which was very clean and had the biggest bath I have ever seen in any hotel.However it was only apparant late that night that we were situated right beside the nite club.It was extemely noisy as as other reviewers have commented on,the stragglers outside were very loud.We didnt get peace until after 5.30 am but this is not the hotels fault .We complained the next day and the receptionist couldnt do enough for us.He promptly upgraded us to the penthouse suite at no extra charge which was a huge bonus.We found the staff to be polite and friendly and couldnt fault it after that.We have read bad reviews about the price of parking but we were informed on checking in that we could purchase a 3 day parking ticket for €10 which is very reasonable for city centre rates.We had meals out both nights and found them to be excellent value for money and there was plenty of restaurants to choose from.We would use this hotel again but we would ask for a room front of house as the niteclub operates on fri and sat.Overall ,we had a great weekend and would come again.
