I've stayed here several times on business & have always found the staff to be pleasant & helpful. The rooms are clean & have been recently refurbished. There is everything you would need for a stay. Nice big bathrooms. As its an old building there are some nice features. The only thing I would mark it down for is the squeaky beds. In every room I've stayed the bed has squeaked... A nice enough breakfast with a choice of cooked or continental. Would happily stay again.

On arrival the hotel looked impressive, located near the marina for nice walks.
The hotel is decorated to a good standard and is kept reasonably clean. As the hotel is old there are a lot of squeaky floors, of which you can tell when people are walking past your room.
The rooms look to have been recently updated with stunning bathroom, however the forgot to update the bed... It even squeaked when you breath!!!
Food in the hotel was very disappointing with service in the restaurant to match, I was that disappointed with my evening meal that for breakfast the next morning I stuck with a box of Kellogg's.

We stayed 2 nights in this hotel in one of the executive rooms. The room was in the modern wing of the hotel and on the ground floor. First impressions were disappointing as the view from the window was of a large industrial skip! However, the room itself was recently refurbished, clean and well appointed. The large walk-in shower was perfect. We ate in the hotel on one night - the only people in the dining room - but the food was fine. Breakfast was buffet style with plenty of options.
This hotel is a very popular function venue and on the weekend we stayed it was exceptionally busy with several functions taking place on the same day. Despite this the staff took time to welcome us and we never felt rushed.Each member of staff we encountered was very friendly and welcoming.

Room Tip: Some executive rooms overlook the garden. Larger, more expensive rooms available in the old part of...

We stayed here on May 4th for 1 night as we were attending a wedding at the hotel.

This is a great location for a wedding and the staff are a credit to the hotel.

The room was small but adequate for a short stay. The room appeared to have been recently refurbished and this showed especially in the well presented bathroom. My only 2 critical points about the room would be the bed and the temperature of the room. The bed was so hard, it felt that we were sleeping on a divan with no mattress. The second negative point was the temperature of the room during the night, imagine trying to sleep on a rock in a sauna. There did appear to be a heating control unit on the wall but this was not functional.

The breakfast was excellent and served from 0800-1000. Hot items were served buffet style (eggs, mushroom, tomatoes, link & lorne sausage, bacon and black pudding). Cereal, bread, rolls and orange juice were also available on a self serve basis. The staff were friendly and offered tea or coffee and toast if required.

All in all this was a good stay. My only recommendation would be better mattresses and looking at the temperature of the rooms. We stayed in room 31 which is on the lower level.

We were in the Tontine Hotel for a Silver wedding, the food was excellent and the staff could not do enough for you.
One guest was in a wheelchair and everything needed was there for her to help her feel comfortable.
