I and six members of my family stayed at the hotel for a family reunion in April 2013. The bedrooms are very clean and of decent size, with very comfortable beds and choice of three types of pillow - hard, medium, and down.
The bar is a jewel, beautifully decorated in dark wood. The bar staff were wonderful, (as were all the staff), and the food served there was excellent - try the chowder with a pint of Guinness, simply superb!
The hotel is situated in the middle of the town, very convenient for shopping etc.
I would give it 5 stars, but for the interruption to sleep on the last night, when the hotel was "invaded" by a noisy Welsh rugby team returning from a late night out, and a faulty fire alarm going off at 3.00AM!
