“Great Family Friendly Hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2013

I have been to the Ardboyne with my family numerous times for lunch and dinner and I have to say its one of our favourite spots in Navan. There is plenty of room in the foyer, which is great for kids, the bar and restaurant are also very child friendly and the staff are excellent. Not only that the food is very good and great value.
My husband often has the Steak special which is on offer there, you can get either sirloin, t bone or rib eye with chips and salad and a glass of beer or wine for €19.95, which is excellent value and very tasty!
Highly recommend this hotel for family gatherings, or just chilled lunches or dinners.

I visited the Ardboyne recently and found the hotel to be a little dated. However the staff were very helpful and the service was good. The food was nice and reasonably priced,Overall I would say that it is a decent hotel

Hello Tony H,

We were surprised to read your review as we only last year refurbished the lobby and bar area in the hotel and our new restaurant Hugo's was opened after a complete renovation in September of this year. We pride ourselves on our hotel and we are often complimented on the traditional, warm and friendly ambiance we offer. Thank you for your positive review regarding our staff, as always they are welcoming and run an efficient service throughout the hotel.

Thanks so much to the staff of the Arboyne Hotel and Restaurant for giving me a comfortable place to stay and warm support on my first day in Ireland. I appreciate that front desk staff went the extra mile to help me sort out some of my travel plans and provide a great place to stay. Travelers to Ireland should definitely work in a stop here as they travel around beautiful Meath.

Myself and my partner stayed in the Ardboyne on the 3rd weekend in October and from the moment we checked in to when we checked out I found we were very well looked after. My partner arrived ahead of me on the Friday with our luggage and straight away she was offered help taking our bags up to the room. We were visiting relatives for the weekend and her attending her cousins 30th birthday party in Swan Lane and found the service to be prompt and very friendly. I may have over indulged in the celebrations and lost my wallet on the Saturday and I have to say the managment and staff in the bar could'nt have been more helpful in helping me find it the next day!The steak dinners included in our package were simply amazing and I overall I had a very enjoyable stay, genuinely looking forward to the next family function in Naaaavan

We would like to begin by thanking Michelle and all the staff in the Ardboyne Hotel for a wonderful day. We had the pleasure of getting married in the Ardboyne Hotel on the 19th of July this year. We booked our wedding in September 2012 and from we met Michelle and made our decision to book we were made feel soo relaxed and at ease. We visited the hotel alot in the months leading to our wedding and every visit just confirmed we had made the right choice. We had a civil ceremony in the Tara suite which was very intimate with our family and friends. The weather was amazing so we were able to benefit from the beautiful garden for all of our photos on the day. Our reception was in the magnificent Boyne suite.... Our guests thought the day was beautiful, the comments we received from our guests regarding the atmosphere and service provided by the team in the Ardboyne have all been brilliant. We would without hesitation recommend the Ardboyne Hotel for any occasion especially a wedding!

All our thanks and best wishes Paul & Suzanne Callaghan

My wife and I happened upon this hotel and its super location during the last days of our holidays in Ireland. The rooms and service were exceptional and outstanding value and the staff extremely cooperative. With so much to see and do in the surrounding area, as well as permitting us the quiet venue for us to rest up and relax after our previous two weeks of travelling, the Ardboyne Hotel was, for us, the right location, at the right price, at the right moment in our holidays. We will always remember their assistance in allowing us to extend our stay until we moved on to Dublin airport and flew home. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: Rooms on the ground floor facing the rear garden area would appear to be the best location. Only sug...

Myself and my husband got married in the Ardboyne hotel in July 2013. We booked the hotel a year before our wedding date after going to view it and meeting the lovely Michelle. Prior to our booking we felt it was important to try out the food and make sure it would be nice for us and our guests. We went to the restaurant and were hugely impressed with the food,the portions and also the service we received. Michelle is a great asset to the Ardboyne and looked after us from the day we booked right up to after our wedding. The reception staff could not have been any more helpful with booking guests into rooms and changing the room lists even at the last minute!! Our day could not have run any smoother from the minute we arrived to when we left the following day we could not pick a fault. The room was fantastic and all the arrangements lovely. The food was gorgeous and plentiful with the staff coming round with extra meat, veg and potatoes during the main meal. They even went above and beyond their duty by providing a birthday cake for my grandad with only a days notice. The rooms were clean and comfortable and all our guests enjoyed their stay. It really is a fantastic venue for a wedding and i would not hesitate to recommend it. They really cannot do enough for you. Thanks so much again to all the staff at the Ardboyne Hotel, Avril and Mark Tougher
