Plates were cold, Lamb was cold, Salmon was cold, and sandwich arrived on white bread.Chips were good. We should have gone to Supermacs or McDonalds..... More

Stayed here for a night away. 4 stars it's not. 3 stars at best. Can only assume it's AA 4 star as opposed to Failte Ireland. Had a Guinness at the bar- was the worst I've had in n year!. Rooms are only average. Very basic hotel that lacks any real character. A typical boom time generic hotel. Was drinking... More

Can't fault this place for food wine or accommodation. It was a little out the way but a short taxi ride isn't too bad. Special thanks to Hazel at reception and Rory from the bar also the man on night duty on Sunday 11th September. Highly recommended the whole place. Thanks again for a lovely stay x

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.
