Make that guy your manager. Parking is around the corner in the mall indoor parking lot. Everything... More

We spent a weekend at The Skeffington Arms Hotel in Feb 2014 with friends and thoroughly enjoyed, from the high standard of accommodation, the friendly staff and the good food, and of course the great atmosphere at "The Skeff". Highly recommended. Bryan, Carwen, Billy & Andrea, South Wales.

Booked the room on booking.com it was a great price (49 Euro) for how lovely the hotel was. The hotel is located centrally with lots of restaurants, bars and shops in close proximity. I would definitely come back and stay at this hotel.

Drove into town one evening and saw a hotel in town. Quoted a fair nightly price, and checked out the room before registering. Everything was fine. Recommend a second or third floor room due to the nightclub bar on the first floor. It gets pretty busy. They have a nice breakfast from a menu included in the rate. People staying... More
