I stayed in this hotel in Jan 2012. When we entered hotel the bar/restaurant looked lovely so we decided to inquire about a room for the night. The bar man who sorted our booking was helpful but told us they were having trouble with the heating after we had paid but assured us that it would be fixed very shortly.
We went to the room and it was absolutely freezing, you could feel the cold air come at you as you entered the room as the hallways were quite warm. We requested heater for the room which we left on while we went out for dinner but it did not heat up the room much. the hotel heating did come on but seamed to go off soon afterwards at about 11.
The bathroom was of a very poor standard. It was not properly cleaned, the shower tray filled with water (it took 20 mins to empty before the next person could shower), the tiles on the floor were cracked with pieces missing and it was tiny. Showering was difficult in the small space (I have never seen such a small shower tray) and there is very little water from the shower. (This saves the room from flooding with the blocked drain however)
The bed was very uncomfortable, you can actually feel the springs and you fall into the middle of it.
The location in the town is excellent and there is plenty of parking around the nearby streets.
When we were checking out we were going to raise some of the issues with the staff but despite ringing the bell and waiting for sometime no one came so we ended up leaving the key on the desk.
We were told the room would be 80 euro including breakfast. We asked for a price without breakfast and he gave us it for 60. (Breakfast is 9euro) Overall it was very poor value for money.
