We paid €140 for 1 night. We had a few drinks in bar which was grand, but when it closed early we were told niteclub down stairs. They were looking for €7 each for residents...!!!!! Come on, we've paid €140, lots more in bad for food/drink and now rip us off to move to residents/disco.

From the moment of walking in the door the service was superb. Nothing was too much trouble.

The room was excellent and cleanliness was of the highest standard. The...
