I booked a getaway break for 2 adults and 2 kids here for €149 b&b. The hotel is lovely. The weather was extremely hot, we got to our room. Check in was at 4 on the dot, anyways. We got to our room and we were met with a blast of heat!! Went to open the window and it only opened a little crack. . Rang down to ask for fans, there were no fans available. The room was stifling hot, so I put the kids in a cool bath. And of course no towels. Had to ring down twice to get towels And I only got 2 so had to ask for more. Went to the bar for dinner and the heat there too was crazy. We all sweated uncomfortably through our dinner. As there was no fans we had to go buy our own for €30. Kids didn't get to sleep til midnight and were in and out of the cold bath. Called the manager and spoke to him about the heat. He did apologise. We finally went to sleep and I woke at 4am and the heating was on. ..... The rad was off but the rad was hot.. This was totally unacceptable. I didn't sleep anymore that night. Went to reception the next day and checked out. . Ask for a full refund and this was accepted. High tailed it out there with 2 very hot cranky kids.. I would have accepted a refund for the night we didn't stay but the heating on during the middle of the night wasn't acceptable. Staff are very nice throughout. Maybe management should buy more fans and upgrade the air con. And turn off the heating at night.
