Service and Staff
Property condition


  • Disliked: Staff & service

Government didn't let us travel (theirs and ours) and they are giving us trouble getting a refund even though other properties did. Buyer bewarned.

Stayed 1 night in Mar 2020


  • Liked: Cleanliness

Decor getting a bit tired. No bottled water in the Delux room. No RTE 1 on the television. Very few channels. Shortage of smiles among the staff. Overall falls short of what I would expect from a four star hotel.

Stayed 2 nights in Feb 2020

  • Disliked: Cleanliness, amenities, property conditions & facilities

The room was very dated and not clean. Lime scale build up in shower, stains on carpet and blankets. Head board torn up. Overall the pictures are not representative of room. I tried calling front desk twice on our arrival and no answer. Dining option was poor. Service terrible.
