I must start my saying that we really did enjoy our stay at the D but that I felt there is just something missing... Still not exactly sure what.
The Hotel is well promoted on the internet and we availed of one of their special offer including tickets for the water park. 2adults and 2 children. Booking was friendly and efficient.
On arrival we found the location to be good, parking very accessible and the decor to be minimal. The receptionist were very pleasant and helpful. They also explained about the additional 50euro preauth on the credit card - I wish people would stop moaning about this - It is now standard policy for all good hotels.
We were told about dining and the kids club.
Our room was on the 4th floor and had a lovely view over the Boyne. A double, Single and Sofabed - The kids were fighting to sleep on the sofa bed. The style is very minimal - like Ikea! The lamps aren't very bright - for reading anyway. Everything else is fine. Good bathroom and tea making facilities etc. The corridors were also quite bare.
The kids really enjoyed the kids club and the young lady who looked after them really deserved a mention.
The food in the bar was very good and the 49euro with btw of wine is excellent. The service from the staff lets it down slightly.
Breakfast was very good.
Overall we enjoyed our trip. Great value, a few areas for improvement but we'll come back and stay a bit longer next time.
