we recently visited this hotel as the trip was a surprise from my partner for my birthday. You are far better staying in town as this hotel is not a place you can walk to and the taxi to the edge of city costs £24 euros each way plus the inconvenience. The bus only runs every hour and that isn't all day just bits of the day. We arrived and were told our room was two single beds but they would change it which was fine . we spent the afternoon and evening out but when we returned we turned on the TV and nothing. my partner went to reception and a workman came up, the power had gone so he fixed it. so I went to clean my teeth and it was then I noticed the water pouring out of the bottom of the sink as the pipes had all come apart from the gaffer tape holing them together. we called reception again and we got back in our clothes from our nightwear. The workman came back and said he couldn't fix it and to put towels down. so we thought we would have a cup of tea and you guessed it the kettle didn't work at which point we gave up.the next day we called reception and the receptionist asked me what i wanted her to do. I said a cup of tea would be nice and she did send up croissants too but as the last bus was able to leave at 11 we had to leave them. That day my partner proposed to me as he had planned but he was gutted . we work hard and life is a struggle. he wanted this to be so special but the hotel was a disaster. Plus the pool was closed all the duration we were there and a medical conference so everywhere was full of tables and medical displays. We have complained to holiday inn complaints and they have come back saying the hotel offered us drinks by the pool and the pool was open which is completely untrue.This was meant to be such a special time and it was as my proposal was the most romantic ever just a shame the hotel let his fabulous surprise down.
