The pool is a decent size for swimming lengths and the gym is again a good size with lots of equipment. The restaurant was... More

Booked to stay 2 nights, my colleague recommended this Hotel as close to his home and a good starting base for our meetings the following days. I reviewed online and it had good feedback and looked excellent. It didn't disappoint, from checking in to leaving, a faultless stay. My first morning I had to leave at 6am so mentioned to... More

We have just returned from a weekend at the Pillo. We had one of the family rooms with two double beds. The room was big enough for 2 adults and two small kods. Loads of wardrobe space, tea and coffee, fridge and safe. Tv with basic channels. Bright bathroom with large bath and again plenty of space for the four... More

We stayed at the Pillo Hotel Ashbourne for 1 night from the 7th April to 8th April. It was everything we were looking for, for our Easter getaway. We chose this hotel because it was close to Tayto Park and it was very family orientated. Check in was no hassle, and lifts were quick and we were able to get... More

To summarise: huge and spotless family room, kids' disco thoroughly enjoyed by our five year old, very friendly staff and a few minutes' drive to Tayto. Meal in the bar was fine. Lovely chicken teriyaki and good value for meal overall. Pool was a nice addition, with a lovely hot jacuzzi. Will definitely stay again!
