Stayed for 2 days at the Brog Maker in May 2015. Rooms basic but clean and breakfast good. Walking distance to city centre and loads of parking. Definite bonus staying somewhere we could go back early to and have a meal and a drink. Meals were excellent - try the Irish stew and the beer very good. Staff very friendly... More

Excellent staff ...just what we needed for a weekend somewhere cheap and cheerful ..we really enjoyed our stay we will definitely be back :). Only a few minutes away from the town itself which was very handy. The rooms are okay they do the job . Would definitely recommend .

Just back from a hen party and stayed in this Fantastic hotel, really helpful and friendly staff and lovely clean rooms with a great breakfast. They could not be more accommodating, had a great time at the residence bar after coming back from the town centre that night. Great hotel for a great price

They use the hotel in there name very creatively , as to me it's anythin but it's more a b and b without the cleanliness, the rooms are in major need of updating and I wouldn't advise anyone to stay here . The room we stayed in had a lovely punch mark feature on the bathroom door. It's like this... More

Stayed for one night, room was lovely, clean & spacious. Had the usual fry up the next morning and no complaints there either. Great location, not even a 2 minute walk into the town. Staff were lovely, very friendly. Nice little bar aswell although we only stayed for one before headed into the town. Will definitely stay here again when... More

Stayed here for 2 nights, it's not the ritz but that's not what we wanted so it was perfect. Rooms are basic but they we're clean which is important. Cannot praise the food enough- portions are very big and you get breakfast regardless of what time u get up- doesn't have the usual 10am finish time like most places. If... More
