We stayed here 2 nights and were very happy with the rooms and service. The rooms are spacious, clean and updated. The price is cheaper even than the B and B's we'd favoured. We had a car so getting into town was easy, although it might be a bit far to walk-it is possible for the fit. A full irish... More

I don't know what everyone is complaining about but this hotel was great! It was clean, had a good breakfast, only 20min walk from city center, good prices and a very helpful staff. We did not have a car but the staff was always helpful in calling us a cab or giving us walking directions. I would definitely stay here... More

This hotel is a disgrace, there was what only could be described as sperm on the pillows. The sheets and pillows were stained. The barman seemed to be drunk. We left and had to go to a different hotel. Never again. Avoid.

Stayed here one night. The hotel is nicely put together and there's plenty of parking. The rooms are huge, BUT the shower was filled with other ppls hair and pubs. Quite revolting actually. The walk from the city is not 20min walk. It's more like a 40min walk unless your extremely tall. Great for a one night stay, don't know... More

Since this is a small inn, keep in mind that they do not have someone manning the desk every moment, however, a phone is available to call and let someone know you are there to check-in. Parking was free as a guest. Rooms were nice and good value for the $$. Quiet area. About a 5 minute drive into the... More

Booked for a work colleague through Hotels.com only for her to arrive after a 4 hour journey to be told she had no room. Card had already been charged and room paid for. Staff refused to help until owner would arrive at 7pm; meaning my colleague had been waiting for nearly 5 hours. First staff member couldn't speak English, 2nd... More

Stayed here just for one night, the room itself was really nice, looked as if it was recently renovated, very comfie and clean. Bathroom was spotless, they do have large bottles of shampoo and shower jel which did not offend me, thought it was quite clever! Room also had excellent WiFi, tea and coffee also in rooms. Owner checked us... More

We stayed here saturday night gone. It was way over priced for what we received. Payment upfront before we saw our room and the owner was very abrupt. None of the staff members looked any way professional and were very rude. The walls are like paper and could hear everything that was going on in the room next door. The... More
