I was staying in this hotel for a conference, the rooms were clean and comfortable. The staff were all very genuine and really lovely and helpful. Very good value. The steam room and sauna are really disappointing as is the hotel food.

We booked a family trip here last minute for my husband's birthday and got a great deal for dinner, bed and breakfast. We got a fantastic room on arrival - room 527 with floor to ceiling windows and loads of room. Staff were all really friendly. Restaurant had such a lovely atmosphere with the open kitchen and waitress had a... More

For a recent business trip I booked into the Pillo Hotel in Ashbourne. I booked a family room and brought my parents and nephew so they could have a bit of a holiday while I worked. The hotel itself was great value and when we arrived on the Thursday evening we were warmly greeted at reception and given the details... More

Stayed here on the night of my birthday for a nice get away. Safe to say it wasn't the birthday night I had hoped for. Working in a 4* hotel myself I can definitely say this hotel is not up to those standards. When we went to our room we were given a room with two double beds - a... More

We stayed in the Pillo on the weekend of the 8th March and I must say that the staff from booking to checking out couldn't have been more pleasant or helpful. The 2 rooms we booked were spotlessly clean and they were both lovely and spacious. The beds were also extremely comfortable and a great nights sleep was had. One... More

Got 1 night voucher for Pillo hotel Ashbourne. This is third time staying here. Check in was quick and efficient. Room was excellent. Great lay out and very comfy bed. Breakfast next morning was excellent with lots to choose from. My wife used Jule beauty spa and has a great experience. Overall a great stay in a great hotel.

Excellent value with very friendly, professional staff. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here, the intimate restaurant, huge room, great pool, relaxing massage, all lent to a very memorable stay. I'd have no hesitation in recommending the hotel, and indeed the package deal.
