Ursula the receptionist firstly couldn't remember if we had actually reserved a room 2 hours earlier and were then told not sure if we have availability now. Had to wait an hour to until she told us there's plenty of rooms left. We should have left. Awful attitude of receptionist

Celebrated our parent's 40th Wedding Anniversary. The reception was amazing, food was out of this world. Big shout out to the Leon (chef). Big thank you in particular to Marie who co-ordinated all the plans and had every detail covered. Highly recommend this hotel - the food is fab and the staff are excellent, so very helpful.

The location is about 2km outside of drogheda, really quiet. The rooms are big enough, nice beds and flatscreen tv. The bath (especially the toilets) are old and look really used. But it is okay. The lobby can be rented as a partylocation and that makes this Hotel to one of my worst fail bookings. It was so loud that... More

Stayed for one night and glad it was just one night. There was a lounge party going on until the middle of the night, thumping music non-stop. My wife tried to run a bath before bed after a long days travelling and found we had no hot water at all, she boiled the minature kettle for a wash. I went... More

Attended party at hotel. Have got to say the staff were probably the friendliest staff in any hotel I have stayed in. Bathrooms a bit dated and mould round shower cubicle, bit like stepping back to the 70's. Breakfast was beautiful, first class.

Stayed for one night while touring Meath. The hotel is a bit outside town but we had planned for a night in. The suite was beautiful and as pictured. On arrival the heat was off, fridge was unplugged and there was no glassware or crockery in the room, but this was all cheerily rectified by a quick trip to the... More

Very nice stay, staff were very friendly and helpful Bar food was excellent as was the breakfast. I would definitely stay there again if I had to go to Drogheda for any reason. Unfortunately was there for a funeral.
