Stayed at this "hotel" as part of a Groupon offer which included a glass of wine on arrival and meal credit. There was no mention of the wine on arrival which we weren't bothered about this because we had a 9year old with us but the meal credit which have been handy as there was 3 of us. We arrived at about 2 but couldn't check in until 3 so walked around in the rain, ended up getting shelter in Supervalu as not many places were open. Got back to hotel wasn't told much information regarding breakfast and dinner times etc no mention of the meal credit. The room was small no tea or coffee making facilities but it was clean. Spent most of the evening listening to children next door screaming and fighting, the walls must be paper thin. The breakfast the next morning was very basic and I wouldn't part with €7 as the staff were rude. As we checked out the lady at desk( we presumed she owned it or was the manager as she was speaking about rosters with a member of staff) had her back turned to us and said can I help you and obviously I was checking out and all she ask for was payment or a voucher, there was no how was your stay. I found this very rude, there was no personal touch in this place. The location was good and the room was clean but that was all the positives I have !!!!!!
