However the greeting in the hotel was lacking in warmth; forms were pushed in front of us which we had to fill in. We were given no information about the hotel or dining times; we had to find out these later. The three of us had to drag our heavy suitcases up four flights of stairs; there was no lift and no one offered any help.
Our first night was spent in a stiflingly hot room with the roar of Eger's traffic and loud-mouthed yobos keeping us awake.
Although our first impressions were not good, things worked out fine during the week. Our room was changed the next morning when we complained about the noise. The food was wonderful; a buffet was served each evening and we ate out on the terrace. Room service was excellent and the receptionists in the lobby improved no end.
The Park shares many facilities with the adjoining Eger -- swimming pool, tennis, bowling and it is also adjacent to the Archbishpo's Park, a large town park with lovely walks.
I enjoyed my week's stay in the Park after my disastrous beginning.
