We were attending a wedding at Ballymagarvey Village and the hotel is only a 10 minute drive from there. Nice size rooms and friendly staff. The only bad note was being woken up at 4:20 in the morning for someone (obviously drunk) banging and shouting at our bedroom door. As it is very close to Tayto Park the hotel was... More

Great hotel with a very good gym you are able to use. My only issue, you must make sure the door shuts. Some doors are worse than others. On 2 occasions the door not shutting caught me out. Hotel room clean, comfortable. Food is very good. I would stay again next time I'm local.

Arrival: checked in at 2pm 22-5-2015 very swiftly, though I felt the girl on reception was a little bit under pressure as she was looking after a sizeable queue of people who had just arrived at the same time, maybe another person could have checked the people in behind me. Room: Nice well presented and exceptionally clean (room 309) had... More
