Got a good deal including 4 course dinner in the hotel restaurant which was gorgeous, the food was fantastic! Hotel room was a slight let down giving the hotels 4* star rating. The room was ok but the decor was a bit tired. The windows are huge and do give a lovely view of the arena but if you don't... More

This hotel is in the perfect location! The staff helped me to find a perfect running route by the sea, plus you are in close proximity to shops and restaurants in town. The staff was helpful andv we couldn't have asked for a better stay!

Very nice! This hotel offers a great location and friendly staff. The hotel is very modern and had great views of the bay. The only issue we had was with wifi, which could have been attributed to the weather.

We stayed 2 nights as part of a tour group. This was our first trip doing the bus tour thing, we usually stay at B&B's for the warmth and personal attention. I can tell you the Trident Hotel made us feel as welcome as any B&B! Check in was organized, efficient, and our Failte was warm and heartfelt. The facility... More

Brought my Mother here for Mother's day. Was a terrible experience from start to finish. Upon entering the establishment, the waitstaff were incredibly stressed and started barking at us to sit down, shouting at us that it was table service only (we were only having a quick look at the buffet!)... whilst having a look at the buffet, the lady...

Dear Mickm227, Thank you for your review of your recent disappointing visit to the Trident Hotel. I am sorry that you were not happy with the way you were treated during lunch on Sunday. Mothers day is obviously a busy and sometimes stressful day, not only for staff. Your use of language is unfortunate because 'barking' and 'shouting' at customers... More

There are two ways to get by in a recession; make cuts and hope the cheap prices compensate for the poor service, or focus on offering a better service and try to win new customers. I'm glad to say that the Trident Hotel is going the latter route. From checking in, to checking out, we found a first class service... More
