This was our first time away in a hotel with our 3 month old little girl and it was fantastic . The staff , food and hotel room were lovely . Our daughter obviously wasn't old enough for the kids club but we could see from the list of activities for the older children that being a family friendly hotel... More

Our wedding was the best day of our lives and the Hillgrove helped make it. The food was fabulous we couldn't have got better and the staff are so professional and attentive. We went... More

We stayed here for 3 nights midweek on 19-22 August. As a treat for a 50th birthday we were really looking forward to some 4 star treatment in The Hillgrove. 4 star it is NOT!! We checked in easily, though I was a bit put out by being asked to pay upfront (a new one on me!). We headed to... More

We stayed in this hotel for 2 nights in August. We booked due to the family friendly nature that the hotel was advertised as. First impressions are striking and the kids loved the look of the outside of the hotel with its big pink chair and water fountain. I had requested a room in the new wing and it was... More

While in Monaghan, I popped into The Hillgrove with my 9month old for some lunch. From the moment we arrived we were very well treated by our server Kiely who was so friendly and chatted to my little girl and made us feel very welcome. Food was fabulous, a great bar menu with lots of choice and it tasted great.... More

We stayed for 2 nights with 3 children aged 4,6 and 9. Staff are very friendly and helpful. Kids club was great as it gave us a chance of a bit of peace and the fact that you can see via web cam in the bar what they were up to was an added bonus. Would def stay again.

Dear Oliver M I am very disappointed to read your review, however, I realise that without knowing our downfalls we cannot strive to improve.
