Stayed here 3-4 times a week for 4 months whilst working in the area. (Aug 14 - Nov 14) The rooms were comfortable, modern and are serviced daily. The recent renovation of the hotel is evident. Over the duration of my stay I think I tried all the dishes available on the menu, and I can honestly say not one... More

Lots of work done to improve the hotel - with a nice bar / lounge However bedroom was cold and shower faulty (hot/then freezing with poor flow) Main light not working in breakfast room and only an ancient electric ring fire whilst eating and room cold. All in all with competition I wouldn't return

We stayed here in this b&b for two nights, breakfast on both days was freshly cooked to order! The restaurant I'm the evening also was very good, plenty to choose from and what we ordered was very tasty! We had the chicken and scampi. The room was cosy, we'll heated and had a lovely view. Clean, with fresh towels provided!... More

We had a very pleasant bar lunch in the hotel today, 29th October 2014. Not only did we not know the hotel had reopened, we discoverd that the hotel has new owners, has been tastefully refurbished and the food we were presented with was of good quality and very well presented. Pleasant staff too! Top marks all round...recommend you try... More

Myself and a colleague stayed at the hotel for one night Dinner B&B. The hotel is clean and well appointed. All the staff we met were very friendly and helpful. I had a dodgy draft pint in the bar that was replaced immediately without quibble. The food is excellent, my colleagues burger was outstanding. The chicken skewers I had were... More

This hotel is just wonderful. The food is excellent and the staff friendly and welcoming. We dined at night and had breakfast in the morning. The hotel had just been painted so everything was fresh and bright. Can't wait for our return visit next year.

We just happened upon this hotel today which was a pleasant surprise. Everyone was very friendly and the chef was great. He rustled up a lovely meal for us, and even though we had the "pensioners" meals it was lovely presented. THe waitress was very attentive. If we are back that way, which is likely, we will go again and... More

I came across the boyne whilst working in the local area and needed somewhere to stay. The hotel represented excellent value for money with well catered for rooms and very good dining options. The new decor makes a big difference and the local scenery is great to explore.
