I stayed here at the begining of October for 4 nights. The hotel is very nice, clean and tidy. We arrived as a group of 19 but were dealt with in a very timely and friendly fashion. I found the staff here to be friendly, polite and helpful. Rooms were very clean and tidy and were of a decent size. Bathroom was well stocked and was clean and tidy also. It doesnt have much of a day time bar, but does have one on the 2nd floor which opens at 6pm. My one moan about the room would be that you have to pay daily for the use of the safe in your room. I feel this is a bit of over kill and should be provided free of charge. I went to breakfast each morning and found the food to be off a good standard and lots of it. Plenty of choice to suit most people. It is a good 15-20 minute walk into town and is not the most straight forward walk to undertake. A taxi will cost you approx €10 from hotel to town. I enjoyed my stay here and aside from the safe issue, I have no complaints. Just one thing, even though it is listed as a four star hotel, I feel it is more of a three star, so just be aware of this in case your are expecting really top class luxuary.
