Booked family room here for a last minute break before school. Booked it on basis of kids club for my two little ones. Drove nearly three hours only to be told at check in that the club was cancelled. Two very disappointed children. I cancelled room and got what I wanted for cheaper in hotel down road.

I have reviewed this hotel before, but as I have now used it as a base when working in Co Laois since the start of March 2016, staying there 3 weeks out of each month, I am delighted to say that standards have only increased in my opinion. So this review is narrow inasmuch as I am commenting on the... More

On arrival met be very polite staff at reception, room was spotless clean. Dined in the bar, the staff were extremely polite and helpful and the food was very reasonable and exceptional. Fabulous leisure centre with clean facilities. No pressure the following morning to check out, well worth a stay

We stayed in this hotel Last weekend. They were beyond helpful to make our stay special. They brought champagne to the room to celebrate a friends engagement. The staff were very friendly, the rooms were bright and lovely and food was good. I'd highly recommend this hotel for a get way break. Thanks again for making our stay extra special.

Lovely food here can't fault that, but was very disappointed to find out the chocolate fudge cake has been taken off the menu, Please bring it back I would go in just to eat that yum yum, hopefully next time it might have appeared back onto the menu by popular demand.
