Just spent the weekend there,it was clean and the beds were comfortable although there was mould in different parts of the room.The restaurant was a disaster,waited nearly forty minutes to be served a burnt offering passing as a steak without sauce as they had run out.Would stay again if no option.

We booked this hotel using an escapes voucher and then looked at the reviews on here and we were apprehensive as to what we would find. On arrival the receptionist was friendly and helpful as they were throughout our stay. Once in our room we found it large, clean, bed comfy with plenty of pillows and plenty of space for... More

I dont have a problem with old hotels, in fact most retain an element of character. But this was dirty and abandoned looking. On finally checking in after parking down a dark laneway, there is no proper entrance way. The lift doors are lethal, no sensors on them, I got caught twice, I can only imagine people with small children/buggies... More

Escapes.ie 3 day break...took us ages to find as we couldn't believe it was a hotel...and golf? Golf? The golf is miles away. Felt so cheated and mislead! They took our payment upfront at reception, otherwise we would have walked out and not paid a cent. Can't even begin to describe the lack of service, filth and dirt and lack... More

After reading previous reviews, one was quite apprehensive on staying- I booked before reading reviews here on Trip Advisor. This hotel is dated and indeed needs a facelift. Works are being carried out and is evident to be seen. Rooms, dated, worn, but very clean Ensuite, again dated but very clean Food, Steak house don't bother, breakfast very good. Staff,... More
