Dear honda750tom,

Thank you for your recent review of our Hotel, however, it is unclear whether you stayed with us or simply made an enquiry.

All of our facilities are wheelchair friendly and we have a car park directly adjacent to the Hotel with 10 spaces for those with disability.

If you would like to contact me directly I would be delighted to speak with you in person, should you wish.

Kind Regards,

Colin Ahern

Had two great nights with the family recently. The staff couldnt have been nicer or more helpful. The kids club was excellent with a wonderful girl called Maria in charge. The bar food was just ok. Breakfast very good. Hotel central so everywhere within walking distance. Leisure centre great for the kids.

Very nice hotel but maybe not quite a 4 star. Hotel was very clean and staff friendly. Breakfast was good with a good selection on offer. Dinner was excellent - good selection on the menu and the food was very tasty! Hotel is in a great location within walking distance to town centre, castle etc. I would definitely stay in this hotel again

nice central hotel close to shops, bars and the castle. Very busy hotel . Bar area was closed when we arrived due to post wedding drinks so ate in the resturant and the food was nice. Resturant staff were very friendly . Had a room at the back of the hotel as i belive the front of the hotel can be noisy.

myself and a group of friends stayed here last weekend and we all enjoyed our stay so much!!!

The rooms were fabulous and the beds were super comfy!!!! the bathrooms were lovely with the best shower in the world!!!! :)

We had dinner as part of the package in the restaurant the food was absolutely fabulous!!! We also had lunch in the bar the next day and everything was fabulous!! :)

The staff were so helpful and friendly they couldn’t do enough for you.

I would highly recommend this hotel to all my friends. The location is amazing so close to everything. A brilliant weekend away at the Ormonde!!!! :)

Stayed overnight with friends on a shopping trip - this hotel is perfectly located - less than a minute and you are in the middle of lovely shops / restaurants etc - a little more than a minute and you reach the beautiful castle . The hotel itself is lovely .. Nice communal sitting areas to relax and there is a nice calm quiet atmosphere in this area - perfect for chilling out with a glass of wine or cup of tea. The main bar was livelier and does decent bar food - there's a nice outdoor seating area . The rooms are spacious and comfortable with good linen and spotlessly clean. We ate in savour restaurant - the food was excellent and the service from one lady in particular was very good . At checkout the receptionist was particularly helpful when we asked about family packages which they offer with kids clubs in holiday time etc. we didn't use the leisure centre but intend to next time we stay. Overall I thoroughly recommend this hotel for couples, friends, business and families alike .
