stayed here recently on a 2 day break and overall it was very good. Location is about 25 mins walk form eyre square or a €10 taxi ride. Taxis are always waiting outside or a courtesy phone inside brings one in a minute or two. Plenty of car parking was available in the hotel grounds.
Staff were very good and courteous - as you would expect I hear you say! The foyer looks impressive and clean and well signposted. We were checked in after about a 5 minute queue and got directions to our room no problem. However on opening the room door we were met with a waft of freezing air. Obviously the previous tenant, (we assume and not the hotel staff) had switched off the radiators and somebody never checked to have them on again. First Impressions were not good as it took nearly 6 hours for the room to heat up again. So we headed for the hotel restaurant. Our visit was saved by this experience where we got a wonderful 3 course meal as part of the weekend package. Lovely bottle of house wine for €22.50 and service and ambiance was excellent. Chowder presented in a bowl honed from baked bread crust. Never saw that before in my limited travels. The nearby bar was busy and a lot of families were using the hotel and a good atmosphere also prevailed. And the room had warmed up when we returned.. or maybe that was the bottle of wine dulling our temperature senses!!
Breakfast the following morning was standard buffet fare with a 10 minute queue. We must have hit it at a bad time as the following morning we were seated straight away. Both mornings breakfast was nice and set us up for the day.
Check out was speedy and no problem.
So overall a very good stay and we would recommend it.
