Had a great 3-night stay here. The staff were all friendly and helpful. We stayed in a family room, which was a good size. Breakfast was excellent for all of us. Pancake machine a hit with wife & daughter. The Kids Club was a hit with our 6-year old daughter. The swimming pool was perfect for the 3 of us.... More

I really liked everything about this hotel. The room was clean and modern with a spectacular bathroom. No issues with the hot water/shower pressure like you get elsewhere in Ireland. The buffet breakfast was great, one of the best I had on our recent trip. We also enjoyed that it had a swimming pool with a child free period at... More

Excellent staff, very friendly and welcoming. The hotel has extremely comfortable beds to ensure you have a great nights sleep. Great place to stay with friends and family. I've been staying here for the last 7 years during race week and would not dream of going anywhere else.

Slightly out of the city centre but a nice hotel overall. Rooms are very spacious but the bathrooms are quite basic. It's next to a small retail park where there's a Dunnes and a chemist (handy if your like me and forget everything!) didn't have dinner here but breakfast was lovely.

Hotel has all the basics. Surrounding area is more suited for a business trip with easy access to major roads than a family get away. Courteous staff, decent food however almost impossible to find a table for 4 in the bar for evening dining due to the large number of groups in business and pre-wedding parties. Family room was a...

The hotel was nice, quite far out of the city but opposite a bust stop so not a big deal. We had a triple room booked but they had only set the room up for to in terms of towels etc. which is poor. The restaurant was massive and there was only one self service toaster for breakfast, which really... More

Stayed here for one night on business. Rooms very spacious and well appointed. Breakfasts very nice. Good atmosphere in the bar during the evening and nice bar food, if standard, supplied. The hotel was convenient for the race course and business areas but if traveling as a tourist is a little way out of centre.
