Stayed here Saturday and Sunday night. All aspects of hotel were honestly fab. Staff very pleasant and went above and beyond to make our stay so enjoyable. Meals here could not be faulted(it was the nicest hotel breakfast I've ever had.... esp. the muffins!). Modern and spotlessly clean. Definitely recommend this hotel and stay again

Room Tip: Ask for quiet room if not going out Saturday night as that's the main busy night in below hotel...

Dear Louise T,

Thanks for the lovely review and we love your comments on our homemade breakfast muffins...We agree they are way too good to be eating before midday!
We hope to see you girls again soon.

Stayed for one night at the end of March. Great hotel in a central location . Was really impressed with rooms as there was plenty of space with really comfortable beds. One slight criticism (on behalf of my mother) is tea/coffee making facilities had to be requested . Staff on reception were friendly and welcoming , are a credit to the hotel.

Dear Valerie O,

Many thanks for taking the time to post a review of our hotel. Delighted to hear you and your mother had a super time. Thanks for your comments on your front of office team here. They will be thrilled. Regarding tea and coffee facilities, yes these are available on request as more often than not, these are never used so we dont like taking up space on the dresser. It is absolutely no issue to put in facilities to a guest who would prefer them. Should you ever be coming down again, we will make sure these are in your room.
Many thanks again.

Le meas,

Ciara

this is a really nice hotel... the rooms was amazing and even though there was 4 of us in the room there was plenty of space and ceiling to floor mirrors which was handy as we were all girls!!!..the bathroom was fab there was a separate bath and a massive shower...we had dinner there that night and the food was delicious... the desert though especially the rhubarb tart looked out of this world the presentation of it in a little black pot and the custard and the ice cream nearly just nearly made me break my Lenten fast!!! the cocktails here are to die for especially their strawberry daiquiri is a def must try..... the breakfast was fab the next morning too it was downstairs and there was plenty of choices...I was told the pancakes are a def must but I went for the omelette myself....cant fault this hotel the only thing was that our rooms weren't ready when we arrived at 230 which was fine though I thought the hotel could offer us tea or coffee while we waited which was over 2 hours and it was only for our other friends letting us know that they had check in and all that we could have been waiting longer...so that is my own fault and would def be back again

Dear Hellie83,

Thanks for your super review. Its great you got to enjoy all the aspects of The Ross. Yes we agree Ciaran's rhubarb crumble is to die for! We are currently launching a new cocktail list at the moment and one of our signature cocktails is Grandads Rhubarb so this would nicely match your crumble for the next time you visit.....Come visit again soon.

Dear LorrSteve,

Thank you for your super review. Delighted with all comments especially about our breakfast which we have really focussed on recently to offer a good variety and something a little different like our homemade smoothies and granola crunch pots.

Hopefully, we will see you soon in the not too distant future.

We stayed on a Saturday night in January this year. The location of the hotel is great, very central and convenient to walk through the town or to pubs and restaurants in the area. Every member of staff we met was very friendly and obliging and couldn't do enough to help us. There is plenty of parking a short walk away from the hotel so it's always nice not to have to worry about that! The décor in the hotel was very modern and really well kept. We were lucky enough to stay in a suite which was very spacious and comfortable, it even had a little fire! We had a great time and couldn't recommend the hotel highly enough! Oh, and the breakfast was delicious!
