On arrival we were stood at reception a while before been greeted as it seemed the bar staff ran the reception also. We asked for breakfast to be served half an hour early as we... More

We ate at the bar, huge selection on the menu, service was fast & efficient. The food was fine nothing overly special but would return again for a bite to eat. Would... More

Great location in the heart of the town. The highlight of our stay was the really friendly and helpful staff. Bar menu was good simple food and plenty of it. The home made chips are worth the trip alone! Herself commented that the Chardonnay was gorgeous. Room was small but spotlessly clean. Bed was great. Highly recommend this hotel.

Clean, warm, friendly, comfortable. But oh dear don't stay in Room 21,unless of course you're out on the town until after closing time. The room is directly above the smoking area so you might as well be down in the bar as up in your room. The decor is a bit 1970's but you'd get over that if it was... More

This hotel has comfortable rooms, friendly and helpful staff and real Irish portions of food. I was welcomed as soon as I arrived. Once I had succeeded in the challenge of finding the car park (easy once you know - and there are signs), I had no worries at all. The community use the hotel as a restaurant and bar... More
