Everything was great here last weekend especially the bar food had a really comfortable stay.The staff were very helpful and I want to say thanks to them for finding a ring that I had misplaced in the room. The cR park was also a great resource as parking in the town is a little sparse. My children loved the showers... More

Reasonably priced hotel in a good location. Standard room- a bit dated. Breakfast grand. Had thought when booking that this would be one of the better hotels we would be staying in but was average. Reception and bar are nice. All in all good for the price and the location is amazing.

Drop in here every so often. Food is good. Portions are sized properly. Staff are so friendly by n large. The salad bar on the way in has a woman working there who I've found a bit grumpy and unsmiling a few times but we just moved on to the hot food section

When we walked in there was a brilliant buzz which drew us in. There is lots of seating but had to queue at the bar a good while but it was very busy. We didn't get food but it looked delicious. There was a great cocktail menu but unfortunately the barmaid clearly hadn't been trained how to make them. She... More

Hotel is right in the centre and walking distance to shopping centre straight across from it. I was very surprised hotel is really lovely on the inside.. Booked without breakfast but got a €6 coupon off so said might as well. Ran down before breakfast finished to order and was greeted by a very rude grumpy girl who looked me... More
