We booked at the last minute for an overnight stay. Couldn't ask for any better service from every single staff member. Room lovely, clean and very comfortable bed. Nice and quiet.. Delicious dinner and excellent breakfast. Will be returning again

We enjoyed our brief stay at Dooley's. Especially nice was the adjoining restaurant / bar. Was a nice end to a day of walking around town. Breakfast the next morning was excellent, with a wide selection of items.

Just back from Dooley's Hotel rooms were clean and the staff there were really nice and helpful. Brilliant hotel for a family children were allowed stay with their parents in the bar at night. Bar staff were really nice and polite. Also the girls serving the food were just as helpful and food was lovely and not too expensive

Clean, no frills but comfortable hotel. Bedroom was large enough for a couple with a double and single bed. I could not fault any of the staff for attention and response to any of our questions. Breakfast was plentiful and all foods neither under or overcooked. Car parking directly across the road with concession prices for the hotel. A five... More

Stayed for three nights. Excellent food, the room was fine though never managed to work the shower and the bath water was brown! Excellent customer service throughout, the dinning staff were faultless and there was a good selection on the menu. Well situated for all amenities and opposite the bus station, hence the road noise

Rooms were small and not fit for purpose. Charging 4 star prices for what is a very basic hotel . Breakfast not good and reception staff not very helpful. However bar staff were good and location was excellent but would not go back as bad value for money.

We stayed one night at this hotel. We found the room of this three-star property rather tiny. Hardly any space to move about. Staff were friendly and helpful. There's free WiFi. Breakfast was decent. It is walking distance to shops nearby.

Stayed there with Family for one night while on Holiday. Arrived late and the food service had just finished. We were famished at this stage, but the waitress in the Dry Dock Bar said she would see what she could do. A Manager appeared and informed us that the Kitchen was closed but he listed about 6 items they could... More

I booked a table for a special occasion dinner in Dooley's Hotel and knew I had made the right choice as soon as I arrived. We got a wonderful welcome. The restaurant was very busy on the evening which just added to the atmosphere. We were given a round table for our party of seven, which was perfect as we... More
