There was no hair dryer in the room and no information booklets in the room about menus, tourist info etc. The family room was spacious but the bathroom small. Daily housekeeping was non existent, we stayed two nights and room was not tidied after first night. This did not bother us as we had enough towels, but 'daily' housekeeping was mentioned on website. Noticed a lot of families staying there. Games room was good but staff at bar and reception would not change cash for €1 coins for pool table etc. Though we had no major problems I would not be in a hurry to book this hotel again.
