Overall,a nice facility, room was large, clean. A good fitness area, lobby and bar.Wifi was free. We were touring in Dublin at the time, it was a facility that could accommodate a group of 50 travelers. Since we did not have transport other than a tour bus, there was nothing walking distance.

Visited for a weekend in July, the kids loved the relaxed atmosphere, plenty of room to sit around and watch the world go by, and plenty for kids to do. Rooms were very clean, buffet style breakfast was great, no queueing and good service of tea/coffee. Leisure facilites were great too, kids loved the pool, the hotel was fully booked... More

Stayed here on the first weekend of July. We were down for the Tayto Park Package. After the park we went to the pool for a while which was really clean and the attendant was really attentive to our needs (caps and goggles etc...) Cant remember his name but i know that he only began in there a month ago(... More

Just home after spending two days in the hotel while visiting Tayto Park with my wife and two kids. On arrival we were offered a room with a bath or shower, we choose the room with the shower and it paid dividends as the room was very big and comfortable. The room itself was very clean and modern with a... More

Stayed here for one night during a business trip, and now wish I hadn't! After a long, hard day, travelling, and working I was looking forward to a dip in the pool, and a nice meal. The pool was unusable due to the number of small children, and families in there. I don't want to sound miserable about this, but... More

Came back from the weekend at the Pillo on Monday, great hotel with hardworking staff who must be saints to put up with the standard of guests at this hotel. Kids run amok and have no respect or manners.for other guests. On Sunday night we had new neighbours to our room 321 at midnight and we had crash bang, shouting... More
