In the course of traveling with a tour group we stayed in 4 different hotels and I must say The Fitzwilton Hotel was the only one that disappointed. The professional pictures of the room do not look like the room we stayed in. Members' pictures better reflect the room, which is in need of some update. The desk and the bathroom vanity top needed refinishing. There were no facecloths in the bathroom nor available.
One main issue we had to do with a loud out-of-control stag party in the bar area. It made for an uncomfortable atmosphere & I am very surprised the bar manager or front desk manager did nothing to settle down this group, who prior to their entry into the bar were in the outside patio table area the hotel, acting very loud, and lifting one young man up in the air as he touched the hotel awning. They certainly did not go unnoticed! Some members of the stag party approached us as we were having a drink in the bar & started with good natured conversation. Their silly antics were dismissed as them having fun, but it quickly escalated into being very inappropriate, making us uncomfortable, so we left with our drinks. What we hoped to be a relaxing night in the lounge was far from it. I would certainly never rate this hotel as a 4 star hotel even without the bar incident.
