I attended this on Friday as part of a large group and could not have had a better time! The food was excellent, whichever option people chose, plenty of it and all well cooked, impressive for the numbers involved. Service from the opening prosecco (lovely with cassis!) to all t

Very nice hotel and friendly staff but this is the third time I have stayed here and have found the breakfast service very slow each time. Takes ages for the order for hot food to be taken then on all 3 occasions I had to ask where my order was after 15 mins. The orders had been

Rooms were awesome, large and comfortable. Restaurant wasn't bad but when we were there the bar menu was kinda slim. Some great views, some eh views, from the upper floors. The city is kind of industrial around there and parking was the only downer as you have to park across a

Dear Bart2d2, Thank you for your review. All our rooms are very modern, spacious and some of them overlooking beautiful Abbey River. Hotel is located in between busy city center and old part of town. We do have free limited parking spaces based on first come first serve basis, unfortunately when the hotel is full spaces filling up very quickly. Hopefully this won't stop you from coming back to us and stay again! Warmest Regards, Chrystian Komorowski

Why are you charged €50 in addition per night using a credit card? Can you pay in cash when departing even if you have given your credit card details upon booking
hi there - so in order to guarantee that the credit card can take any additional charges we need to pre authorise. if we do not and you spend additionally in the hotel there is no guarantee the card will accept the payment. No problem to pay cash on departure but you will have to present your card for pre authorisation on arrival to guarantee funds availability. Then when you pay in cash the bank with release the unused pre authorisation. regards DH

Hello, wondering if you might have an earlier check in on August 7th, I am booked to arrive on the 7th for 3 nights. Could I check in at noon? Thank you. Also, do you have information regarding day trips?
Hi There We will always try to facilitate early check in but at the moment we are pretty much full most nights so we are very dependant upon what time guests leave and how quick we can turn the rooms around. Regarding the day trips there are lots of options so the best thing is to email sandra at the desk ( i cant include emails on this) she will be able to help guide you dependant on what you are interested in. I'll send this to her so she'll be expecting. DH
