Stayed here over the easter break. the hotels leisure centre is good if you don't want to go out of the hotel. It is near the town centre. Would recommend for families as the kids will be entertained. Breakfast is the usual, nothing extra special. In all, got value for money paid.

Lovely hotel clean pool area but could do with more signage in changing area to direct you to pool, nice staff, friendly and helpful. We were in a family room with double beds, we found the mattress to be very soft and bed to be very small. Room was clean and bright but could do with a second bedside locker... More

We stayed here with our 3 kids. The room was really spacious and clean, staff very welcoming and the hotel caters for numerous families. There were kids everywhere when we checked in on Thurs eve at 7pm. Great for us but I would suspect a nightmare for anyone looking for a peaceful and relaxing stay away from kids. The hotel... More

Went to the Pillo Hotel yesterday (27/08/14) at around 4pm for a light lunch with 3 adults and 2 children. The staff and service was fine. However, when I ordered the Fish Chowder soup I noticed that it smelled a bit strange. Thinking that it might have been a particular spice or something like that I started to eat it.... More

Our son Aidan married Rosie and we got the Royal treatment. Staff wonderful, friendly and helpful, rooms spacious and spotless and the food was "just right", would appeal to all ages. Recommend if you want to relax before the hustle and bustle in the big cities, like Dublin, Limerick or Cork.

Just checked into this hotel after a two hour wait. The advertised check in time on our late rooms booking email was 15:00. On arrival, there was a sign stating check in at 16:00. Queued initially and was asked to fill in a form, then sent away to wait for a room. Watched as a queue of nearly 50 people... More

Stayed here as part of the 3 night b&b family bundle. Great value and so accessible to the zoo, funtasia waterpark and 5min from tayto park. Kids had a ball as the hotel is so family orientated and the buffet served every night is a must for value. My only negative is that the drinks are a bit pricey in... More

We (two adults, and two children)spent two nights at the Pillo hotel. From start to finish we enjoyed our stay thoroughly! I must say that any member of staff we met couldn't have been more helpful. Room was clean and spacious which was great for the kids! Anything we wanted for breakfast was there at hand. Lovely pool. Very impressed... More
