Spent one Saturday night here recently. I'd like to have been able to check it out more but wasn't here enough. I found the receptionist and all waiting staff to be very helpful and efficient. The room was nice, and comfortable. My only problem was that, being a Saturday night and facing the street, it was noisy into the small... More

Stayed here one night and the room was great with a friendly, welcoming receptionist. Breakfast in the bedroom was good. We had a meal in the hotel restaurant because the bar food had stopped. Sadly, the meal was straight out of the Pallas foods catalogue? It was ok but nothing special. Nothing to highlight local food and produce which was... More

i stayed here with work colleagues for 4 nights. I wasn't really expecting anything as the hotel had been prebooked for us. When I arrived I was pleasantly surprised!

We stayed overnight last Saturday. The bedroom is a good size and the bed and pillows were comfortable. The shower was good and everything was clean and in good condition. We enjoyed a lovely breakfast yesterday morning. However, the room - allegedly non-smoking - STANK and it was like sleeping in a stale ashtray. We were in a tearing hurry... More

We wanted to explore the Slieve Bloom area and decided to base ourselves in this hotel for one night of a bank holiday weekend. We were very impressed with this modern, comfortable hotel. We had interconnecting rooms which worked perfectly for our family. The hotel was very quiet during the night and a good night's sleep was had by all.... More

The hotel is in a good location a bit off the beaten track - but that is no harm. The hotel itself is of fine standard and the rooms deserve a special compliment for roominess and layout. Modern and contemporary come to mind - pity then that the staff could not get the WIFI working despite a request to have... More
