Misleading
Arrived earlier than the 2pm check in and the lovely receptionist checked me in and said my room was ready which was a lovely surprise.... until I got to my allocated room which overlooked the road and filling station.... not the pool view as stated in the room description on Hotels.com. Went back to reception to explain the mix up and was informed I need to pay a supplement €42 for the pool view room! Not very happy as I had already booked and paid for this so be aware of hidden charges!! Rooms are adequate but very poor lighting and can hear everything from the rooms next door which isn’t very pleasant! Breakfast was good, plenty of choice but would’ve expected to have a choice of coffee. Staff in the restaurant seemed fed up and didn’t interact with guests. Spa was lovely, pool a good temperature and plenty of loungers and towels Location is great, easy and safe to walk everywhere. Wasn’t any entertainment during my stay not even music in the bar so be prepared to find your own.
