I stayed here the other weekend with friends for a stag weekend. We found the location to be ideal as we were only a short stroll from the main street and all the bars etc.
The hotel is a little dated as has been mentioned before but it is very clean. The lobby area is nicely laid out with plenty of sofas and decent floor service.
There is no air-conditioning in the bedrooms which could be a problem in the hot days- how many of those do we have in Ireland though??- but the beds are very comfortable. The bathroom was clean too although again it could do with a revamp.
Breakfast is busy and the room is not huge but the staff seat you and they are very efficient at clearing tables etc. I thought the breakfast was great- plenty of hot food as well as toast, tea, cereals etc.
I didnt use the Spa and Leisure center but my friends took a swim and liked the look of everything
I would recommend this hotel for families and groups. There did seem to be a lot of both staying in the hotel when I was there.
