This was our second pre-Christmas stay at this hotel. We stayed for two nights in December, just before Christmas.
The food was excellent.The room was comfortable and warm. The extractor fan in the bathroom was noisy.
We were surprised to find out, on our second visit, that dogs are allowed at this hotel. We didn't see any on our first visit, and I did not like to think that we were in a room which a dog had probably been in, and to perhaps lie on the furniture, no to mention lying on the bed!
The sauna was good, it was nice and hot as was the steam room, but the jacuzzi was out of action, and still out of action on New Years Day I understand. We were 'relaxing' on the loungers in the sauna area,when it became very, very noisy with a teacher teaching kids to swim. I would have thought that this should have been conducted at a communal leisure centre rather than a private health club.
Our first night there we spent with friends: the food and drinks were excellent; the waiters were attentive and friendly. The second night there the food was still excellent, but as it was a Friday evening, there was music in the form of a disco, which seemed as it was only music which the DJ;s liked, it was not our type of music, some of it was rap and it was loud, my husband and myself could not hear ourselves speak. We did not stay to listen to it, and we retired to our room, after our meal. Oh,and you had to pay extra for your Christmas meal, because there was a disco on.
The next morning at breakfast, there was a noisy threesome, with all of their business documents around them, conducting a business meeting,enjoying their coffee and croissants I'm sure. We heard all of what they were talking about, their clients and there finances etc. We didn't want to hear it,but they were loud, and oblivious to those around them that wanted a quiet breakfast. We mentioned it to reception, who didn't want to know, and said why not? We say that they should have conducted their meeting in a private room, along with their breakfast. Apart from that the breakfast there is very good with everything you can think of.
Another thing of note is that the hotel should provide an outside smoking area away from the entrance doors to the hotel,as you had to hold your breath when going in or out of the hotel, because of smokers standing there and partially blocking the entrance.
Will we be going there again next Christmas, I am not sure. less
