We booked to attend a local wedding and were given one of the many newly refurbished rooms. When we turned the key and walked in we were absolutely blown away by what greeted us. A stunning suite comprising of two rooms, a bedroom with a four poster bed (really comfy) and an adjoining relaxing area. Fabulous décor and furniture throughout.... More

Nice bar area, good food and generally value for money. Bathroom left a lot to be desired, grout missing from tiles and generally grubby looking. Electrics in the room dodgy, broken plug top, sockets loose on the wall. Needs updating.

Looking for a place to stay close to the airport, booked our last night in Ireland. We stayed in room 206. Literally bugs crawled over the night stand, pubic hairs and mold in the bathroom, the room smelled of mold. Everyone entering the hotel walked by our room including rip roaring drunks from the wedding and other parties from the... More

We stayed only one night, but found the hotel staff delightful. So friendly and helpful. Great service and food in the bar area. Delicious breakfast. We stayed in the refurbished newer rooms and found them to be very comfortable and inviting. Best deal so close to the airport.
