I was slightly disappointed ; the location was great and the reception staff and breakfast staff and food were very good and breakfast was very good also the parking manager was very efficient but I appreciate under the present circumstances of COVID 19 the staff were under pressure with the strict rules,but we wanted to have a snack and spend some time in the lounge on one of the nights as it was raining & I felt the communication was bad as we were prepared together food to the value of nine euro and sit in and have a drink but were abruptly told (no you must have a full meal)we were not hungry enough for a full meal so we had to go back to our room- the linens were not changed and no housekeep done apparently we would have had to request this because of COVID so over all I was disappointed with our stay

Hotel location was fantastic. Room was clean and bed comfortable. Breakfast was great. We had been allocated a front room facing the road and the window didn’t close properly but the staff dealt with the issue promptly and we were happy. Parking facilities are a little unusual but the parking attendant was very skilled at making it work! Total respect for him. In conclusion I would stay again and recommend to other travellers.
