Last year we stayed at the Dream Castle Hotel and loved it, this time we thought we would try something different and considered Radisson with its credentials, a good alternative. We found the check in easier than Dream Castle, more efficient and less queuing. This was the only plus though, overall our impression and experience did not match up to the Dream Castle.
We had chosen the Half Board option. Breakfast was OK, but I did notice a fellow guest find hairs in his scrambled eggs, this was rather off putting and I chose not to have this again. Other than that, good choice of pastries, cereals, cheese, meats etc.
The first evening: Dinner was excellent, A La Carte, well presented with approximately 5 choices of starter, main and dessert. However as the days went on, the menu did not change and quite honestly we were bored. With a couple of choices that I would avoid, for example; Foie Gras for my own ethical reasons I do not eat and steak & smoked salmon that despite having paid half board, the hotel charged extra for...Our choices became limited & wearing. Before booking, I emailed the Hotel to ask about dining options, specifically buffet availability.We were promised that there was a Buffet restaurant as well as the A La Carte. Don't be fooled by this! We arrived on Saturday and checked out on Wednesday, there was no Buffet available on these evenings. Having said that we were assured that the Buffet was happening on Thursday?? Not being there to find out, I cannot confirm or deny this.
We would not have booked this Hotel if we had known, or been told truthfully, that there was only going to be A La Carte dining. We wondered if this was a money saving exercise!
Our room was always serviced and was a decent size, despite the fact that we sacrificed space for an extra bed for our 13 year old daughter. I was concerned by the lack of mattress protectors. In the UK this is now considered a basic hygiene standard!
The shuttle bus was reliable and not as busy as it could have been, the advantage is the only Hotel it serviced was the Radisson. Our bus last year called at 3 or 4 Hotels. That was a truly "Cattle Class" experience.
On our last day we arrived back to our room and found the door had been left wide open, I can only assume by Room Service. After an initial frantic check of the cupboards and the safe we were relieved to find nothing had been taken. Our room was at the farthest end of the corridor, fortunately this meant no one had walked past and seen the "invitation.". I spoke to a Gentleman on reception, whilst he was sympathetic he did not seem overly perturbed. I can't say he filled me with confidence.
Would we stay here again? "No." Taking into account the food and our concerns about security, it would not be our first choice, we would go back to Dream Castle.
