Stayed for a weekend in February with husband and young child. Evening meal was good, breakfast very diappointing with no option only fry, which, depending on when you arrived to the servery, could be lying there for some time. Asked for an omlette, and told that the chef said he was too busy.
Child attended the kids club, and was pushed from chair back against the wall by another child. When we collected him, he was visibly upset, but the staff said nothing about it, and it was only on returning to the room that we found this out.
Highlight of the trip was visit to the spa which was excellent, due to the very professional staff - Susan in particular. Full marks for that.
Hotel pool was nice, but lack of control on kids jumping into the jacuzzi. When I said it to the pool attendant, he said that he had said it to the kids but that there was nothing he could do about it - but the mother of the offending kids was sitting within 6 feet of him reading her paper!!
Room was very cold, and on ground floor of "tower", and looking onto buildings and a wall, and therefore very dark. Also no soap was provided in the rooms.
2 nights b&b was €430, which I think was very poor value for money, given the accommodation and the very basic breakfast.
Won't be returning in a hurry.
