After a very long day, all the way up from Dublin, all we wanted was a warm welcome and a big bed. The hotel on Racecourse road is lovely, nice trees, great setting. We got our warm welcome. Indeed not a single thing was too much trouble. We got everything we needed by way of information or directions and all... More

We stayed for 3/4 nights as a group including local admittance to 3 brilliant golf courses. The hotel was clean, welcoming, and the food there was... More

7.95 supper menu excellent value/ good bar and nice restaurant although a little on the small side; menu somewhat limited but what they do, they do well. Without doubt a clear indication that good food and nice surroundings don't have to cost the earth

Trip Advisor pointed our way to the Chestnuts and we were not disappointed. The staff were pleasant, efficient and responsive, at times going the extra mile to ensure our group were well looked after. Food, drink and rooms were all first class. As a golfing group we have been travelling away for 32 years and our stay at the Chestnuts... More

This was my third stay at Chestnuts Hotel, and once again I could not fault it! Room was spotlessly clean, warm welcome from the staff, great food, football in the bar and some good conversation with locals/staff - what more could you want? Oh yes, free parking and Wi-Fi - they have that too! Top class.
