I recently stayed here with my boyfriend for 1 night and we attended a friend's wedding. The hotel itself was lovely and the reception room for the wedding was gorgeous....very vintage and rustic. The wedding reception is located in a different building to the hotel so you have to walk outside to get to it. The service was very good at the wedding apart from at the end of the night when there was no sign of a residence bar! The bar was closed and only drink was served to the rooms. It put a slight dampener on a lovely day and night.
Our room was quite big and I loved the big 4 poster bed and lovely bathroom! However, the TV was a small portable TV which took away from the luxurious essence of the room. All hotels 4* and above should have plasma TVs in rooms by now.
My one big problem with the service (and I know other guests felt the same way) was that breakfast was only served until 10am! This was way too early and it was 17eur to get the breakfast to your room. I felt this let the hotel down and they should at least serve breakfast until 11am minimum especially after a wedding.
Overall, the hotel was lovely but they need to make changes to some of their service policies and it would make the perfect stay and wedding venue!
