Staff are very friendly.
Breakfast was all you could eat; cereals, fruit salads, breads & toasts, fried "Irish" breakfast, brewed coffee and tea.
We booked this hotel because they have a kiddie pool and steam room. But we were informed that the leisure centre closes at 5.30 on Saturdays - so absolutely no use to us!
I had emailed them to let them know we had 3 children travelling with us, and needed an extra bed.
We arrived early on Saturday afternoon (2.30pm), in order to arrange the extra "camping bed". When we got to our room it was freezing cold - the latches on both windows were broken off and the windows could not be closed. So we asked for another room, and asked for the extra bed to be set up there.
We then went off for the day.
When we returned there was a terrible smell in the second room - cigarette smoke mixed with something else!! We again asked to be moved to another room (btw Mary at reception was brilliant!). But as it was now so late there was no chance of getting the extra camping bed as they had all be allocated to other guests. This, despite repeatedly asking for it VERY EARLY in the day. The housekeeper pushed 2 beds together for the 3 children to sleep in.
There was 1 towel in the bathroom of this room, despite it being a "family room".
I couldn't log on to use the broadband in our room.
My advice: go the extra 500 metres and stay in Bewleys for the same price. Cleaner, warmer, quieter and the sofa in their rooms pulls out for that extra child's bed.
The Louis Fitzgerald is a further 300mtrs beyond that, and the Moran's Red Cow is about 1 km further again. Any of these will do a better job than this place.
