Had a family break for two nights. Hotel's website advertises family rooms that can stay up to six people in. Our room was No 322 - never take it!!! Far too small for family with two kids would do for 2 people sharing not four. Barely fit one double and one single - hardly any space to walk (can you imagine to have two kids in it). Window was facing a dirty wall outside, that we couldn't even see a sky and didn't know was it raining or sun shining. Toilet wouldn't flush - had to use hotel's public toilets. Room service was poor too. They only made the beds - didn't wash glasses or cups. There were somebody's hair in the bath. When kids were trying to have a bath by a slight pull a curtain poll fall on the top of their heads.
We had evening meal included in our package - on the night of the meal we discovered that we had to pay supplement fees on some starters (€3.00), supplement fee for steak was €10.00 never seen such a price before!, Lamb €5.00. By the end of the meal it was hardly free dinner. And I wouldn't say that package was that cheap itself €238.
But food overall was nice and staff was very friendly and helpful. Leisure facilities are very nice, only kids have to leave at 6.30, time we were back from sightseeing. Only got to use it once in the early morning.
Location is very good and it is very nice around - lovely lake and beach walks, playground.
Wouldn't stay in this hotel again.
