We stayed one night last weekend. Food was excellent, accommodation very good. Our waitress Olivia was exceptional serving us our Evening meal, then Breakfast the following morning. The only drawback is that was no Spa. There is use of the swimming pool but it's a 5 min walk.

We got a fantastic deal on Escapes.ie. Very reasonable. Beautiful room. Spacious and comfortable. Staff are fantastic, so tuned in and customer friendly. This hotel is a taxi ride to town but really nice. Christmas tree in reception was beautiful.

Stayed a few nights, the room was nice, service staff was welcoming. The lounge area is a great place to have food and drinks. A bit of a ways out from downtown, we took a taxi in and had a good time listening to local musicians and good food.

We stayed at the Westwood as part of a tour and had a great evening. It is a bit far from the downtown district, but worth the inconvenience. It looks like it is old and I was surprised to find out that is really isn't. It was just designed that way. The staff was cheerful and helpful, the food was... More

This property is located a bit to the north of the city centre on the main road to town. The front desk staff is hit and miss. As this is a farily expensive property, I would advise checking the website for packages and then informing the desk of said packages. There is ample free parking. The wifi works well and... More

I stayed here back in 2005, I stayed here again in 2014. Same 5-star service, same smiling faces from staff. Rooms are clean and big. The only down side is I can hear people talking in the parking lot in the evening and noise from corridor.
