As a family, we have stayed at the pillo on our annual trip to tayto park every year. we are well aware that it's a family hotel and can be very busy, which can cause delays during check in and dining times which is fine. We booked a one night stay with tickets to tayto park, the same every year... More

This hotel is listed as a 4 star hotel, which is overselling it, see it as a 3 star family friendly hotel with an uninspiring breakfast buffet and similar night buffet. It's location is convenient for Tayto Park but placed on a field with no surrounding neighbours, It feels depressingly lonely. Check-In & reception staff was stressed and inattentive (We... More

We stayed here last night and booked bed and breakfast with the tayto park tickets. We were all very happy with our room, food etc. The children were happy to have their own space in the adjoining room. Very comfortable and clean. Highly recommend especially for families. We had no issues at all and look forward to our next stay.... More

It was a great experience from start to finish, the highlights being cleanliness, attention to detail, well-trained & friendly staff, family-friendly environment, close proximity to Tayto park, and indoor swimming pool. We stayed in a 2+2 family room which... More

Stayed over in July as we were finishing off our holiday with a trip to Tayto Park. The hotel is wonderful. Great staff and wonderful service. The guys on reception are really good even more so when you consider how popular the hotel is and how busy they are. There is choice in eating between the restaurant and the lounge.... More

Firstly, let me say, I don't have anything overly bad to say about this hotel, but I don't have anything great to say either. We got married on 17th July and didn't have the money for an official honeymoon abroad. However, we decided to book a few days away for us an the kids. We had been recommended this hotel... More
