Great place to stay! There was an issue with the internet but this was eventually resolved! Both restaurants are recommended, great service and fantastic choice! Look forward to returning again soon! Afternoon tea was enjoyable and the cocktails in the evening were delicious!

The hotel was nice and the room was comfortable. However, they were holding a wedding and the music and noise kept us up very late. The wifi also cut in and out in the room and when we needed assistance we called down to the front desk and went down to the lobby and no one could be found. The... More

Accommodation was very comfortable and clean :) The Bar could do with a bit of an update and the bar food was only average (apart from the dessert! -yum!). The hotel has a lovely location while close to town it is set... More

First of all, we enjoyed staying at this cute hotel, and embraced it's graceful charm. The staff was wonderful. That being said, there were a couple of issues - one being the wifi. It didn't work in room 205 most of the time the 2 days we were here. I could however get wifi in the area at the top... More

Front desk,breakfast, and pub staff were very helpful and pleasant. they made our stay very enjoyable. Beds were hard, but typical of European hotels. Location was reasonable walk to the university and city center. Not far from Glenlo Abbey for golf in the other direction. Wifi was terrible in the rooms. It never stayed up. Using the wired connection worked... More

This is a great place to stay if you don't want to be smack dab in the city center. It's still close enough to catch a taxi or drive in for the day (5 min drive). It's quiet, luxurious, and the staff was very accommodating and helpful! Great place!

Had a really good nights sleep. Loved the large bathroom with the old style toilet flush chain. We had a little bit of trouble finding the... More
