Needs a lot of improvement

Except for 3 mitigating factors the location, breakfast and pool area this hotel needs a lot of work. This is the 3rd and last time we stay at the President in Bantry Bay. The service was terrible and to get the staff to smile was like drawing teeth. The reception staff were no much better. Our drains in the bathroom and sink did not drain properly and after requesting five time to get them fixed we gave up. The towels were of poor condition and the did not leave face towels we had to request them daily. They kept running out of complementary newspapers and when I suggested they should get more they thought I was mad. I could go on forever about the condition of the hotel rooms but will not I will leave it to your imagination. This hotel is not more than two star and definitely is not four stars..
