From the moment you enter the reception area to when you leave you can be assured of a warm welcome, great service and a great feeling of being looked after. Although there are local guide books you're far better talking to the reception staff who will direct you with great ease. Don't be surprised if management check with you occasionally to ensure your stay is going well or is there anything they can do to enhance it. The food is wholesome and hearty and if you fancy something a little different look no further than the menu for a myriad of choice. As a base for sightseeing it's ideal with Trim Castle (scene of Braveheart Filming) just down the road and the Boyne Valley and Hill of Tara nearby; you truly are well placed. Security monitored parking and weekend nightclub separate to the hotel for the young at heart means most bases are covered. There is only one downside - if you have mobility problems then the stairs may be a little testy but I believe renovation plans inlude a lift. Oh, one other thing, I wouldn't stay anywhere else in Co Meath!
