The best part of the Hotel is the bar and restaurant. The room was small, but comfortable, television didn't work too well, but we were tired anyway. Once again while in Ireland no wash cloths. Also the parking is on the street, or in a parking garage a ways from the hotel. Also the biggy if you have heavy suitcases,... More

Stayed one night and on arrival the receptionist was cheerful and helpful. We were allocated a good sized room, which was very clean and nicely decorated, with a decent sized en suite. Huge bed! Great night's sleep. Excellent breakfast, and plenty of choices on the menu.

Visited here on Sunday evening with my partner, parents and son and couldn't have been happier. The hotel is lovely, welcoming and the staff couldn't have been more friendly! Anytime something was served to our table, the waitresses took the time to show our son some attention which he loves! I always find when restaurants treat children as people also... More

There is no parking at this hotel. We parked on the street outside for two days and had to feed the meter every two hours. The receptionist was cheerful and helpful. The two rooms we had were shabby and small. We had to haul our cases upstairs as there is no lift and no porter that we could find. The... More

Location excellent near the pier. No sea views at all as restaurant at back of building. Felt very enclosed. We had to walk through noisy bar with enormous seating where people were also eating, in order to get to the restaurant. Feels very " hotelish" which I don't like. Almost a sense of stuffiness in the room. The menu was... More

We had two rooms, both up one flight of stairs, and I had insisted that everyone pack light, so no problem getting bags to the room. Our room was very nice and the bathroom was really good. Breakfast in the morning was good and everything that we could want. It was included with the room. Their recommendation and help getting... More

Room was nice, clean and great location. Just like the rest of Ireland we had to carry our luggage up the stairs so pack light. On a very happy note the restaurant has the best seafood chowder in all of Ireland! Thank you Brett (from Canada) for all your suggestions and being so friendly! It really made our stay just... More

This was a decent place to spend one night. The room was small but clean and quite nice. Friendly staff. Great location. Some concerns - our room was up two long flights of stairs which was a pain with our heavy bags, and no help was around. The breakfast was poor, the coffee weak and our eggs benedict looked like...

Great location in the middle of town where you can walk to everything. Rooms are a bit older but very clean and they are renovating. Bathrooms are new and very clean. Breakfast included in price. Would definitely stay again.
