Stayed here for only one night on our way back from a 2 week holiday in Croatia by car, so please bear that in mind when reading this review
Firstly they have an underground car park under the hotel which costs 7 Euros, which we found was badly sign posted causing us a 15 minute detour to turn around, could do with more prominent signage on the main road.
Check-in was a simple process of filling a form in and we were given a room on the first floor, it was a double room with 2 single beds as requested, there was plenty of space to move around, even with 4 of us in there! We ( especially the girls!!!) enjoyed the fact they provided several English channels on the TV, a must when you have spent 12 days in Croatia with NO English TV!!!
We thought that the en suite shower room/toilet was very modern and very cool looking with the blue LED lighting, shame the shower gel bottle was virtually empty, meaning we had to dig through more bags in the car park to find our own!!
Hotel was very modern and trendy looking, especially the reception area, generally a lovely quiet hotel even though its on a main road!
We were a bit disappointed at breakfast as we arrived 15 mins after it had started and already most of the choices had gone, as the greedy other guests we noticed had taken large amounts of each item for themselves, not the hotels fault I hear you say!, it is when they take 10 mins to replenish aforementioned choices, and when they did, it was with small amounts so were gone very quickly!! I, as A British man, don't particularly enjoy eating cake, cold meats and cheese in a roll for breakfast, but if it is the European way, so be it, so I would have been happy with a few rounds of toast and some cereal, unfortunately, there was little choice of cereal (3) none of which looked appealing, so I settled for toast which I had to wait 10 mins for staff to bring out more bread, of which, they only produced a small basket of 8 slices, in their favour they did have plenty of boiled eggs available, which I avoided for obvious reasons during our subsequent 8 hour car journey!!
All in all we had a fairly pleasant stay here but I would urge the management to tighten up on their staff at breakfast and keep the choices available well stocked, considering the other guests, I won't say of which nationality!! Who thought was exclusively theirs and were all over it like vultures constantly, causing others to watch the staff like hawks for a replenishment and have to hop up quickly to try and grab a morsel, not a fun experience at the start of the morning!!!
