Stayed at this hotel as part of a large group last month. The room we were allocated didn't even vaguely resemble rooms advertised online. It was cramped and shabby. Bathroom badly needed refurbishment, grouting was chipped and stained and paintwork well worn. Television was ancient. The entire floor where we stayed was shabby - wallpaper worn, paint chipped etc. Service... More

We have just returned from another 4 day break in this hotel. Perhaps we could be known as creatures of habit but with the first class service delivered by first class staff, why would we wish to try anywhere else. Catherine dealt with our booking with charm and efficiency, Bernie checked us in with the usual warm Irish welcome we... More

Stayed as part of a tour group. Not sure how this hotel is rated as well as it is. Not anywhere near a 4 star hotel. Carpets are worn in hallways and in room. Room is dingy, worn and dirty. Phone has food caked on it. Bathroom door is broken and door knob doesn't work. Strange unlockable door which appears... More
