Property location is greta if you are traveling to that region. Hotel rooms are not clean properly, stains on carpets and blankets. Amenities very old and not working properly. Spider webs on the restaurant area and in the rooms. Room was facing the motor way and could hear all cars from the 5th floor.

On initial impression it's clean and tidy enough but after a closer look you start to notice quite a bit of wear and tear that is overlooked. Furniture is faded and putting in parts, walls are scraped and not painted over, surfaces are not always wiped clean properly....I had to wipe the desk top as there were good stains on it. Restaurant service VERY slow

First impressions were good, great location easy to find, recieption staff friendly. Room was very basic thought i walked into a different hotel as lobby was nice. Only had 2 coffees and few tea's, beds were clen and extra pillows where there. Was warm so i opened the netting of curtains and window itself was really grubby and needing cleaned. There seemed to of been something wrong with toilet water as bathroom smelt most of the time. Plenty.of fresh towels. We ate in bar area its great that they give a free voucher for children. All kids meals was €7 and all there deserts wer €3 great price for children. We ate 2 main dishes from menu burger and the curry that was near €50 for two adults thought that it was a bit expiensive was nice dont get me wrong but not that nice.
