    Hotel clamps customers car in their own car park

    Arrived after 10 pm tired after a long day and parked in the hotel car park, we got up the next morning at 7 am to find our car clamped with a parking fine of 120 euro which was issued at 5:30 am. I complained to the receptionist and she said it was my own fault, the hotel staff had not warned us or given us the information that we should have put a form in the car window to say we were staying at the hotel, they gave us the form after we were clamped ! this hotel really needs to warn tired customers that they have to pay parking up front otherwise they will be clamped. we won't be back!

    Not worth it

    Stayed on business for a few days. Coming in from an internationation flight, I had to wait until check in at 3pm. Understandable. McGettigan's restaurant was ok on food not the best to kill time. Fitness room is a maze to get to. The pool is not as nice as it appears in the picture. Moreover, it is open to the public as it is not exclusive to hotel guests. Breakfast was ok and nice service. There was a mix up on my dates and I checked out a day early but they did not correct me or say anything about losing out on the extra day. Hotels tried calling them but they were obstinate on not refunding requiring a 24 hour notice. I spoke to them myself and even dropped by but they were not willing to budge. Walking to the restaurants was easy and not too far. I will not stay here again. There are a lot more better places in town.

    Stayed 5 nights in Sep 2019


    Dinner was nice, modern decor. Nice swimming pool & jacuzzi area. Close too early in the evening 6pm. Room clean, comfortable beds. Very hot in the room at night. No air conditioning. Couldn't open the windows due to noise outside. Between 2.30-5am loud music & shouting noises from a floor above, slaming doors. Rooms not sound proof at all. Bad night sleep Reception staff could look a bit more cheerful
