We celebrated our baby's Christening here recently and want to say a big thank you to the staff! From the first phone call to the moment we walked out the door the customer service was excellent, the food was great too and there was plenty of it! We will be back soon on a 'date night'!

Located in the heart of the town it offers nice breakfast and food for dinner and the best is its pub, pronounced with "U" in Ireland.... More

My wife and I had a lovely meal in the restaurant of this hotel. We were particularly impressed by two staff members, the gentleman who took our order (think that he may be part-owner of the hotel) and our wonderful waitress, think her name was Jessie. This establishment appears to be very family friendly. Overall a lovely experience, with a... More
