Staff at the hotel were very friendly. Breakfast on week days was a full Irish breakfast including soda bread and potato bread. Weekend breakfast Friday to Sunday was a buffet style. Best to get there early so that it is still piping hot. The evening menu had a wide choice of options including a set menu. The portions were more... More

I stayed here in August whilst in the area for a friends wedding. Barring one grumpy housekeeper the staff were fab, rooms were spotless and very roomy, food in the bar was brilliant and highly recommended, great character about the place. Could do with an extra towel or two (I have long hair) but would stay here again in a... More

We stayed one night here a few weeks ago. By luck it was a friday night and we ended up just having bar snacks which were huge platters, then dancing to the live music!!! We had a ball!!! The bar snacks were fine, just the usual sort of stuff, and the music grand.... there was a young lady singing who... More

We chose the Adair Arms to celebrate a family birthday recently and we weren’t disappointed. It was ages since we had last eaten there but the menu catered for our varied age group and it was close to home. Being honest some of the food could have been better. The mixed grill, lamb shank and the kids meals were great... More

I called in and enjoyed an afternoon cream tea with a friend who had a prawn salad which looked great too. The service was friendly and the old decor is fantastic. I hope to visit again soon with my daughter's. The toilets were very clean and had lovely dedigns on the tiles.

Right, the good points first: Clean, central and has (to me) undergone a type of renovation as all the fittings seem new and spanking as did the carpets. Service is very friendly and helpful. The value was excellent. The not so good points: our room wasn't made up after the first night, and nor were towels changed. The floors are... More

Hotel beside all the shops and other pubs. Very clean and staff friendly and helpful. There is entertainment in the bar at the weekends. Our room was disappointing because it was so small but as we were only staying one night it did the job any longer and I think I would have asked to be moved. We seemed to... More

We only booked this hotel the night before we stayed. We used booking.com and had originally booked a suite as the booking site indicated this was the only type of room available. However on the morning of our stay we received a very courteous phone call from the Adair arms hotel apologising that there weren't actually any suites available and... More
