We stayed here for 2 nights B&B. Check in was fast and earlier than expected as our room was early. The reception staff were the friendliest I have seen in a hotel. Our room was spacious and spotlessly clean but so, so hot. It was stifling! It wasn't particularly warm outside but the room was so warm we all slept on top of the bedding on both nights. The bathroom was unbearably warm.....Breakfast was plentiful and delicious but we had to ask for tea and toast several times on both mornings. We ate in the bistro in the evening and we found the food to be delicious but my husband thought the portions could be a little more generous. Our waitress was superb and I regret not finding out her name!....As for the Kids club, it was my first experience with a kids club and Louise was excellent! Although I was a bit miffed with the 'Splash and Dash' session in the pool as it was basically the kids in the pool with the staff watching on...I was glad we were also in the pool as we actually entertained them....The changing facilities are very good in the leisure centre. We went to the Dome leisure/entertainment complex next door which is also owned by the hotel but at €7 a head entry and €5 for coffee and a small danish, it is pricey. I really liked this hotel and the relaxed atmosphere but I have to say I wouldn't return in summer because of the lack of air con.
