We stayed here as a family and we could not fault it from start to finish. We had a slight problem with booking but the manager dealt with it and explained it. Lovely well appointed family room with 1 double bed and two single beds with views of the sea. Room was very clean. Food in the bar was excellent... More

Had two nights here, very nice room overlooking the park and sea - very pleasant. Room well refurbished and very clean. Quiet despite being on front of hotel. Tea and coffee making facilities, but no biscuits - maybe a drive to address obesity! Staff were all very pleasant and helpful. Breakfast was good and efficiently served, and nice dining room...

On Sunday we had lunch in this hotel while watching the Gaelic football match between Dublin and Donegal. We had excellent viewing -music was turned off for the match and we loved our meal - fish cakes followed by lamb -excellent stuffing . The pièce de resistance was however the lemon curd roulade which was described by a waitress as... More

The welcome from Grace Ryan the owner was lovely, her staff are lovely and helpful and friendly. The décor suits the building, light and classic. Our twin room on the 3rd floor was accessed by "the lift with attitude". It encourages you to take the stairs. It works, it's reliable but it's slow. It's not a criticism, just an observation...

My 7 person, 3 generation family enjoyed a lovely stay at this hotel overlooking the water. It's a perfect spot to stay and explore the area. We found lots of lovely towns along the coast for walks and good food. The decor is modern and fresh. My 5 year old loved "fishing" right in front of the hotel. And the... More

This hotel is excellent value for money. The room was absolutely spotless and made up vey well, has a very modern touch. The bathroom however gleaming it was did have a very weak shower. It wasn't the worst but that's the only thing that let the room and hotel down. The rooms are silent also, I could not hear a... More
