Located alongside a retail park it doesnt look like an upmarket hotel as you drive towards it. Free parking is available in the basement car park and the lift is controlled by the room key to prevent non guests from wandering in off the street.
Checkin was quick and efficient. The decor was a little colourful for our tastes. The lighting in the bedroom cooridoors is projected from the base of the walls and was a little gloomy. Get rid of the emergency exit signs and and a few cobwebs and you're set for halloween.
The room was spacious and clean. Water had been placed in the mini fridge to chill and a pair of cupcakes were waiting on the table in the room. A turn down service offered additional bottles of water each evening. The wifi was fast and the connection strong on several devices from the room. The bed was large but slightly softer than I am used to.
We ate one evening meal in the restaurant. We found the staff friendly and professional but the service was on the slow slide - there were a lot of guests in the restaurant that evening. After a mediocre starter the mains were excellent as were the desserts.
Breakfast in the morning was a continental buffet with several cooked to order options. I found the full irish breakfasts to be good but my wife, a vegetarian, was less impressed. A flat and uninspiring veggie omlette was found to have some ham in it and the pancakes on the second day were very sweet to her tastes.
Location wise, it is about a 2km walk into the city centre from the hotel which we made and didnt find a problem distance wise.
