The wedding we attended here was fantastic - the food was really super (pork belly and black pudding especially). The rooms were nice and very spacious. The overall decor probably needs a bit of an overhaul - just a bit "old".

This was a nice place to spend a night after arriving in Shannon airport. We spent the day in the burren and relaxed in the hotel for the evening where we found staff friendly and enjoyed the environs of the hotel. Food was reasonably good and the hotel itself was clean and well maintained. Would stay again but just as... More

This hotel is a perfectly suitable 3.5-4* hotel. Nothing fancy but service is good and the room was clean. Parking lot and surrounding area are well manicured. I would recommend it to anyone coming through the area whether a couple or a family. The pub across the street called Durty Nelly's (stumbling distance) was one of the highlights of our... More

If you're not bothered with forty winks this is the place for you. The guest rooms lack slow release door hinges which means every time one of these massive old & heavy doors close they slam violently. The dinner & service at the wedding was one of the best we've experienced in Ireland. It was truly superb. Check out was... More

We stayed there with our two kids in a family room. The hotel was very decent and spacious. The room was clean and big with all facilities you need. The pool is excellent. There is a fitness area as well. The bar is quite small but it had a live music. Plenty of seating in the reception area. We happened... More

Nice clean hotel close to the airport. The rooms were nice and the bed very comfortable. The shower did leak but overall everything was great. Very touristy spot filled with travelers. Staff was friendly and breakfast was good. Nice stop before flying out
