The best thing by an absolute mile about this hotel is Spagos restaraunt. The hotel itself is tired and in need of some updating. The rooms had no fridge, a 15 year old TV, room keys that constantly failed which meant a trip back to reception (this happened 4 times in 1 weekend). Noisy music in the bar which kept our kids awake. Jason Byrne was appearing in the hotel which meant that we could only have our meal at 5.30 in the evening or 8.45 which didnt suit because we had 2 children under the age of 5, because the restaraunt was catering to the customers attending the gig, which is no good enough really. The quality of the food in Spagos really surprised us, The decor was hardly awe inspiring but the food was amazing. I had the duck on both nights, it was the best duck I have ever tried.
The small things add up from the girl at reception telling me it was my mobile phone that was causing the key card to fail despite the fact that I wasnt carrying my phone, to the breakfast that had "run out" of eggs... I would struggle to reccomend the Heritage but I would wander into Spagos to sample their duck.
