There were more than 200 people at this Education Conference, including more than 100 secondary school students. I compliment the staff on their courtesy, the apparent ease and efficiency with which they served meals and coffee. Above all they were friendly and most helpful. It is not always easy to be so attentive when there is a big crowd of... More

This place is really popular. 4 of us popped in for lunch. No table service available. It's Sunday, the place is teeming with people. The carvery has main course for €13.95, kids €6.95 and adult half portion for €8.50. The hotel and facilities is clearly popular with locals- a good sign. Carvery is carvery!

Everything about this hotel is top notch from check in to bedrooms and breakfast buffet to restaurant. Best breakfast of any hotel and I can't say I've had nicer food anywhere than in the restaurant.
