We paid €140 for 1 night. We had a few drinks in bar which was grand, but when it closed early we were told niteclub down stairs. They were looking for €7 each for residents...!!!!! Come on, we've paid €140, lots more in bad for food/drink and now rip us off to move to residents/disco.

The room was excellent and cleanliness was of the highest standard. The... More

It is central to everything in the town centre and parking is available. Food was good and staff friendly. There were hen nights in later at tonight but had... More

We stayed at this hotel for my sisters hen party during the October Bank Holiday weekend. It was a great choice. The hotel staff were excellent and made my work as chief bridesmaid very easy. The location of the hotel was great, but we didn't have to venture too far outside the hotel grounds on the night. The Prince Bar... More
