This hotel is very well situated close to the city centre (about 5min walk). The staff at the hotel, whatever their position, were very polite, friendly, caring and attentive. We booked two non-smoking rooms. Room one was fine, but room two was a previous smoking room. The room wreaked of tobacco smoke even with the window open and there was an ash tray in the room! You cannot turn a room into a non-smoking room simply by putting a sticker over the smoking sign on the door! This was my husbands first Ironman and he was greeted with 'good luck ' cake and a helpful information pack. He was also offer secure storage for his bike. Breakfast was from 2.00am on race day with all the right kinds of food on offer. We had dinner in the hotel the previous evening and this too was targeted at Ironman really well, with lots of fresh pasta dishes salads and vegetables on offer and the fresh fruit desserts were lovely, lots of variety. The hotel is very quiet and relaxing but corners are cut. For example, the bath water is set at 46C and is really only just warm, the toiletries are sparse, towels were lovely though. If you are thinking of doing an Ironman next year this is a really good place to stay, well catered for, quiet and close to the finish line. The staff are great, the bar was fine and the food good. Just needs those few little touches here and there but for the price its not bad, somewhere I would recommend for an overnight stay.
