We decided to take a two night New year' eve package stay after seven years break from last visit to Hotel Magellan.
Pros : The hotel is located not far from Warsaw ( 120 km ) and quite close to Łódź ( 60 km ), almost in a center of Poland, hidden in a forest close to Sulejowski lagoon. It makes a place quite deserted and calm ( especially during winter days ).
It i a 3 level building with rooms in two opposite wings and a pool and SPA in a center.
Free parking is located just in front of a hotel.
The place offers different rooms that more or less stick to claimed three stars standard. Comfortable beds, enough place for luggage, simple bathroom.
Several conference rooms might be nice for business meeting purposes.
Medium size rectangle pool, Jacuzzi and two sauna's offer nice place for rest.
Food in restaurant acceptable but nothing extraordinary ( except nice fruit milk cocktails for breakfast : ).
Seperate bar scene with small dance hall is a good alternative.
There is also a rope park in a hotel area.
Cons : It seems that the hotel calls for refreshment - the overall cleanliness if far from top ranks, wall plasters feeling off etc.
WiFi - faulty and not working during almost the whole 3-day stay ( just several minutes on the 1st of Jan morning ) !. The alternative offered was an Ethernet LAN but this solution is rarely used nowadays ...
No towels, no bathrobes in a pool - it seems they had not planned enough off them for expected number of guests.
A really good New years party for adults. Good, varied food and wine, several hot dishes, cold platters, fruits and sweets. Additional barman stand. Good live rock band with four 40 minutes performances during a night, very good DJ Tomek running classic disco events.
Kids party animators did probably the best they could but they failed to keep young group involved and all parents have to help to keep them in a party till midnight.
Simple fireworks followed by nice fire show presented by a group of young performers after midnight.
Nice outdoor crossfire with cabbage stew, sausages, black pudding etc on the first of January. The only problem was a lack of control which resulted in a private fireworks shows of slightly drunk guests creating a risk for other participants.
Overall rating of both event and a hotel facilities is good. My perceptions is that with quality offered the whole package is slightly overpaid.
