Our room was booked through a self-drive tour agency that my daughter and I took throughout Ireland and Scotland. I noticed that in the hotel's on-line information, they said there is free Wi-Fi if you book through their on-line site. As we booked through a tour group we asked them to check with the hotel to see if we could still get free Wi-Fi. They said they assumed it would be no problem. When checking in the young lady at reception seemed to have heard many complaints from customers about the Wi-Fi not being free (as it was in virtually every B&B we stayed in as well as most every shop/store/restaurant and pub we visited....even in the Highlands of Scotland). I was incredulous that in this day and age, a higher end hotel does not include it. Well, to make a long story somewhat shorter....the manager did agree to give us free Wi-Fi for our two day stay. I thought that was very kind of him. The hotel lobby was very nice and the elevators was quick. Our room was lovely and the bathroom was big and well laid out. The bed was comfortable and the air conditioner was very efficient. The location was very central and I would consider staying again, however, only when they come around to free Wi-Fi. The breakfast was mediocre but the dining room was lovely. All except for one young woman, the staff was very helpful and very friendly.
