Where to start !
This hotel has such potential.
Right in the middle of Armagh, loads of parking, solid walls which meant a great nights sleep and a good breakfast.
We travelled as a family of four adults and two children. Checked in by pleasant front of house staff and directed to two rooms .
Both had two single beds attached as a double and two singles. Decor so dated,carpet badly worn and splashes of ketchup on the curtains.Old tv sets, one with skyone the other skynews ! One room had lots of tea ,coffee ,milk sachets . The other had two of each.
Dirty glass with imprint of toothpaste on the rim, broken grab rail in the bath and again one room with minimal toiletries the other room an excess !
Down for food , four of us decided on bar food which was good but took 30mins to get to table.
The bar area is dark and dated, again ketchup on the chair beside us and a dead wasp on thefloor.
Dinner for two of us in the friary restaurant was very poor and pricey.
Steak was very tough. For dessert, the icecream came on a hot plate and my baileys cheesecake was actually mint.
When i pointed this out i was told "oh yes, thats right !"
A stone from a peach or prune was on the chair beside us , the three waitresses that served us each looked at it and walked away. We were laughing at this stage.
Armagh was lovely, well worth a visit .
We ate in embers coffee house for lunch and dinner the next day and only slept in the hotel.
Accessing the pool was also an ordeal, voucher from front desk, through locked doors downstairs and offered two towels by the unsmiling attendant. We got six and had a nice swim with the pool to ourselves.
We decided that basically the staff just don't care which is a pity.
