    Leaving the Hotel to go shopping.

    The price of the room for one night was appaling 145.00 euro for two people. Breakfast was 10 euro extra each and overnight parking was 8 euro, in total it would cost 173.00 euro per night for a couple to stay. The Hotel seems to attract Hens and Stags if you are looking for a quite relaxing meal, drink or sleep the Harbour Hotel is not the place.

    Location was excellent for city night life but quiet enough for relaxation

    Well located, a short walk to the city centre. great bar. rooms clean and tidy. the only point i didn't like was paying for the parking every time you had to take your car out. Apart from that i had a pleasent stay

  • Older travelers

    Very hospitable staff, location ideal for visiting the city.

    The layout of the breakfast room needs a rethink. Tables were in straight lines and too close to each other. Car parking was also problematic.

  • Couple

    A very nice hotel only a few minutes walk across a bridge from the town centre. Modern furnishings, very comfortable and excellent value.

    The car park is quite small and individual parking spaces are very restrictive in terms of entering and exiting.

  • Couple

    Nice place to live, in city centre, clean and good value for money

    Breakfasts are too expensive,, € 10 pp..

    The bedroom was great, airy and clean. SPA area is lovely. I would suggest having bathrobes/slippers in the bedrooms for use in the SPA. Whilst the jacuzzi and steam room were great & really clean. I would recommend looking at the way austrian steam rooms are set-up, in so far as they minimise the maintenence by having a water hose in the steam room so people hose it down when they are leaving/before they use. I would stay in the hotel again, great location, room, staff & SPA/beauty salon. The beautician was excellent & really lovely.

    The food & dining service is the one area where I see improvement needed. Staff seemed to be rushing & more concerned with clearing tables than looking after guests. All other areas staff were brilliant, room service, spa.

    Great spot, nice staff, paid parking :-(

    breakfast was a a bit disorganised

  • Group of friends
    7.4

    Loved the fact that it had wellness facilities and the proximity to town. The hotel and the rooms were very clean and somewhat luxurious with a nice bar, lounge and restaurant. The bed was so so comfortable.

    The jacuzi/gym was unattended and there was nobody to answer my questions. The steamroom was not working. The view out of our room onto the carpark and onto some boat full of what seemed waste was not the nicest, but we did not book the hotel for that reason anyway.

  • Family with children
    7.4

    Staff were very pleasant, accomodating and attentive without having to request them to be so. Also liked th free internet access on our floor. Was a nice little perk to allow for daily sight seeing planning.

    Parking was quite tight. We have a fairly large car and were not able to access parking spaces beside pillars which were often the only available parking left. Also a little disappointed to ahve to pay a parking fee.
