Lovely hotel
The check-in was very easy all current guidelines are being followed and all staff were wearing their facemasks. The hotel was very nice, clean and spacious. All staff we encountered were very helpful, quick seating and service in the bar and restaurant. the room was very spacious and clean, we stayed for 2 nights and were offered clean towels, extra water and tea coffee after day 1 which i thought was a nice touch

Expensive
We paid for our meal (dinner) on check in, it was booked for 8... we rang down to reception around 7 and asked could we wait at the bar before our prepaid meal was ready! When we entered the bar we were turned away so we ended up having to wait in our room. After paying over €200 for the night it was such a let down! Now in saying that, the staff in the restaurant were amazing
