Since some of our previous stay was marred by a room cleaning error, they owed us a discount on our next visit. It was exactly a year ago since our last visit and we only had an overnight stay that time, on our way up to the Antrim coast. This time we wanted to have a two night stay, for a bit of r&r to ourselves.
We had a junior suite on the twelfth floor which had fantastic views over the mountains of Mourne and Blackrock bay, and we could also see some of Dundalk town. The room was very spacious with a luxurious bathroom, a lounge area, and the most comfortable bed I had been on in a hotel for ages. When we got to look at the bed, we noticed they had left a sleep help pack on it, which contained a scented spray for the pillows, and a roll on that you put on your wrists and temples, a nice touch that does actually help you to sleep well. In my opinion, the room was quite dusty, especially around the mirrors and light shades, could do with some slight improvements in that area. The staff were excellent, especially Amanda, who was very compassionate to my wife, and who arranged the whole stay. We ocasion to call a manager to the room to fix the sound on our tv, an eastern European guy whose name evades me at the moment. He was extremely helpful and an all round nice chap.
One of the nights we had a meal included in our package, which we could choose from the a la carte, and pay the surplus on items that were not included. I chose a chicke dish which was marinated in honey and tarragon, and served in a filo pastry type basket. Sounded lovely in writing, but just did not look great when it arrived. We both opted for the fillet steak, which was ten euro extra, and decided to forgoe the veg, which sounded like what I call, "Lazy chef veg". Carrot batons, broccoli and something else.
The breakfast was very good, and was the usual buffet style, and had a great selection available. They also had a chef behind the buffet counter doing the eggs to order, which was a nice touch.
The view from the dining room, which is on the thirteenth floor, is also very spectacular. I am sure I will be back at some stage to the hotel, but I wont be actually waiting with baited breath to do it.
