What a fantastic location and brilliant value for money. In complete contrast to the infamous €2.50 bags of tayto in another hotel we got tea,two sandwiches,two spirits and one mineral for less than€25 and B&B for two €69 who wouldn't want to stay here. I most certainly will be back. Thanks a million to the very happy and welcoming staff.

Attended the wedding of two good friends here last month. From start to finish EVERYTHING was exquisite. Well done all at the Woodford Dolmen Hotel. Food, service, the staff, all top notch. This hotel has done a complete 360 with its transformation.

Every aspect of our stay was wonderful so much so that we cannot overlook any aspect.

The new look Woodford Dolmen is great especially the Dining Area which has new seating arrangements and new upholstered seats. Food is always good and staff are friendly. The new owners have updated staff uniform to a purple shirt which gives a modern look.
