We arrived early at check in and just asked to deposit our bag. The surly receptionist said that she would book us in immediately when she decided on a room. We deposited our bag and went out of town and had lunch in Dundrum. We returned that evening and had a meal. This tasted fairly good but too much for people who were not hungry. We were served by a lovely helpful waitress. Met the wife of the owner, a very friendly conversable lady.
The bar has a good number of staff but none appear to give the impression of professionalism although they cope adequately. I would be more impressed with bar and waiting staff dressed in white shirts not black polo shirts.
The breakfast was a joy to behold. Great fried eggs served by a smiling waitress. I have had fried eggs in 5 star establishments but none was ever better or so little time delayed between hot plate and table. Great. Oh! the bacon was also lovely.
A nice hotel very clean in a decent location.
