We stayed here for 2 nights. We chose to have the back room as we were warned about the noise from the river. Very quiet room, was a little small due to having a double and a single bed. Room, sheets and bathroom were clean. Shower didn't have much pressure but was easy to operate. Clean towels left outside the... More

Booked for ST Patricks night and got a very good price on our room. Had the choice of river view or a room at the back chose the latter. Room was very clean and had a very comfy double bed or single bed to choose from and must say I had the best nights sleep no noise at all. Had... More

This canot be called hotel accomodation...It is a shabby bedsit plus shower at best, entrance to room off the street, with black mold in the shower. The quilt cover obviously not changed and matching pillows dirty! Sheets and other pillows were clean though. Host very pleasant but definitely not worth the money.

having read conflicting reviews of this hotel we were happy to find a warm welcome to a lovely room. We were shown a room overlooking the river, and warned that this could be noisy but we could move to a quieter room without the view. We stayed with the view. The noise was not a problem, we could hear music,... More

Both my husband and I ordered Moules Marrinier for starters and both agreed that they were fantastic and tasted exceptional. For our mains I had Surf and Turf which was cooked to perfection, my husband had the T-Bone steak which again was... More
