I live nearby "The Darnley" so frequent it often for breakfast dinner and tea and honestly hand on heart have NEVER had a bad meal in it. Service is great and attentive entertainment good and varied. I have never stayed there but told the rooms good value and comfortable...Try the Fajitas or the full Irish Breakfast..both very good indeed.

Been here twice , first time found the staff to be friendly and the food to be good. Second time We found the food to be awful and the staff to be rude with the exception of the duty manager. I live near this but unfortunately due to the bad experience of the second visit I won't be returning

I had the pleasure of being at a wedding here yesterday. The hotel was in the centre of town. The food was excellent and the service even better. All the hotel staff were very friendly and welcoming and couldn't do more to help. The function room was stunning for the meal. The music was great (available locally). The front bar... More

We stayed here because it is the closest place to our friends' wedding venue. Overall, we enjoyed our time here. The hotel itself is not extremely amazing, but the staffs are really nice and helpful. The breakfast is great. The only negative thing I can think of is the internet. It is really hard to connect to the internet.
