We stayed here July 3-5. We chose this hotel as it was centrally located and near the bus station. The room was clean and larger than expected. The staff were wonderful and helpful. I noticed an iron in the hallway when the cleaning staff were coming through and asked if I could borrow it - no sooner had I said... More

Quite dissapointing trip after reading good reviews hotel is need of major make over and good spring cleaning. No real comfy chairs to sit and relax in and if you wanted a drink you were asked to go next door to the Donard bar which to me was really for men who were very loud and were betting on horses...

When we arrived on Monday we were welcomed by the... More

My girlfriend and I stayed here during a driving golf/distillery holiday of Scotland/Ireland in August 2015.

The room was spacious, the bed comfy, and the bathroom while smaller, adequate. The rooms are spread out and on different... More
