Just returned after a four night last minute stay at this hotel. It's a typical tourist type hotel and really a case of you get what you pay for. Our room was clean and comfortable and the beds allowed a good nights sleep. The negatives of this hotel is the public areas which really spoiled our stay, the main lobby area which has large sofas and some chairs is very uninviting and cold, a few subtle table lamps and some flowers would make all the difference the same for the bar area which although well set out and furnished just lacks that cosy atmosphere, little wonder no one was in there during our visit. The buffet breakfast was very ordinary with the same old things every day. Tip: Go to breakfast early as the food is not changed or topped up so you can end up with scrambled eggs that have been under a hot light for hours and as for the bacon don't even attempt to eat it. The reception staff are reasonably helpful but you get the impression they are not really interested in customer service. Finally we had to pay €15 for WiFi in our room for the duration of our stay,when will hotels realise that charging for this service is turning customers away.
