Stayed here in February 2013. The hotel is not the most appealing from the front, however, it was nice inside. Rooms were basic, however the food was fabulous in the restaurant, and breakfast the next morning too.

Hi Mur1975 I'm glad you enjoyed your stay and the recently upgraded executive rooms. Normally I would agree with you about cheaper wines, but we believe that good wines should also be good value. We hope to see you back again soon. Regards Eoghan More

Rooms lovely and clean. Staff very unfriendly. Waited 50 mins for dinner ordered a toasted sandwich not very nice and cold. 6 or 7 different tables of people got fed up waiting for dinner. Breakfast was a complete disaster. Everything kept running out like plates cups food drinks very unorganised to say the least.

Having been given this as a gift, its remote location off a motorway wouldnt have been our 1st choice. That said we thought we would make the most of a belated Valentines by having a quite night in with no babies, romantic dinner, a few cocktails. WRONG..
