My husband and I recently stayed at this hotel for an anniversary trip. All the staff were extremely friendly and very helpful. When finding out we were celebrating our anniversary the receptionist arrived at our room with a complimentary bottle of wine and a card for us. This was the perfect start to what was a great stay! The rooms... More

Stayed in this hotel last saturday night 16 August with 3 children and the noise of people on the street, the disco and a group of hens running up and down the corridor throughout the night ensured that none of us slept during the night. It was explained when we were booking in that there were 3 children in the... More

We genuinely always try allocate rooms to the back of the hotel to families and people that request away from the street . I do not know how it was... More

The outside of this hotel looks just dreadful (this may be due to dust and dirt from the nearby roadworks) and there is absolutely no indication of where the entrance to the hotel is. We mistakenly walked in through the bar doors at the corner of the building, when in fact the reception doors are at the side – and... More

Upon Arrival (after a very long trip) we were greeted by the receptionists of the hotel who were extremely friendly in helping us get settled. the room itself was large with more then enough space for the two of us. the bathroom and especially shower facilities were second to none! We had both our evening meal and food the following... More

When booking this place we were not advised about the loud disco going on half the night. The girl was aware that there was children in our party. She also never told us about all the hen parties that were booked in who would be shouting on the corridor all night. We dined in the bar and half way through... More

Wonderful hotel, across the street from one shopping centre and a ten minute walk from the other. Staff were very friendly and accommodating. I rang the day before arrival to request a quieter room away from the night club and the receptionist (Aisling) sorted it immediately. There is a great choice of meals from the bar menu and we ate...

I was astonished when this old established hotel was unable to charge my UK credit card in euros. The waiter in the restaurant told me their card payment machines could only charge my card in sterling. If I was cynical I could possibly surmise they were trying to stick a crafty 3% more onto my bill by offering what is... More

We stayed for one night on 8th August on our way west. The receptionist was friendly and helpful.( I think Aishling was her name). The bedroom was spotless with a massive bed and lovely bathroom with double shower. My wife was well impressed with the make up mirror in the bathroom. We had dinner in the bar it was perfect....
