“Great Value”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2013

Stayed for one night in the Aspect Hotel with my wife. We paid €60 for B&B. The staff we encountered were all top class.
We met some friends there and used the restaurant for our evening meal. This was exceptional value - four course meal for two and a bottle of wine for €49. There were five of us dining and we were all very pleased with the quality & service.
The was a great variety of items for breakfast but as usual I had the full Irish. My wife went for a more healthy option and was also very happy with her choice. We were also happy with our room & had a good nights sleep.
As others have said the hotel is a bit away from the city center but this did not matter to us on this occasion. There is loads of car park spaces available. Overall we were very satisfied with our stay in the Aspect.

Not going to go into too much detail but stayed here again for new years and the change in receptionists is TOTALLY EXTREME!! from BAD TO FANTASTIC....... no matter how many times we passed reception we were greeted with big smiles and friendly attitudes! Helen McCabe was the receptionists name and full of the joys of Christmas, New Year, Spring, Summer etc!

thanks helen for a memorable stay!

Room Tip: any room away from the lift is advantage to having a good nites kip!!

I had a great experience in this hotel mostly because of the staff. I had interactions with 3 different staff members and found them all genuinely friendly in a casual but sincere sort of way. You got the impression they knew all their guests.
Its not a hotel I would stay for dinner in and is definitely more bed and breakfast but the rooms were a very good standard for the price point. I asked for a couple of things that the hotel doesn't generally provide and they went out of their way to oblige me.
Its a bit outside the city so transport is needed - taxi in was 6 euro and taxi home was 8. The hotel is really great value overall.

It's fast check in. Decent rooms, grand parking and the breakfast was fine.
Grand for business but email and Internet only in the lobby. it's where you go to crash out before work and after. It's clean.

Overall, it's fine, but it's lacking charm of an older hotel or a plush venue, but great value.

We stayed here while attending a wedding in another hotel. It's located near a few shops including a KFC. The room was clean comfy beds and clean bathroom. Great chat with the man checking us in. Very reasonable rates but really only a place for sleep and shower.

We bought our nights stay in this hotel as part of a groupon deal which gave us the nights stay, a bottle of wine, breakfast and a late checkout.

Upon arriving at the hotel the receptionist that greeted us was polite but not overly welcoming, our interaction lasted no more than the minute it took for her to look over our e-mail booking and have us sign for the room. The bottle of wine we received was tasty and the room itself was clean. The location is in an industrial park, just a short taxi journey into the city.

We had been looking forward to our stay and some much needed rest and relaxation, but it as it turned out neither of us could sleep properly because our bed was two single beds clipped together and everytime one of us turned over the beds separated and had to be pushed back together several times during the night. Our bathroom also smelled terrible. The stink of cigarette smoke (we were on a non-smoking floor) was very strong, disgusting and unpleasant everytime one of us used facilites. We decided not to use the late checkout the following morning and we left as soon as we could after having an early breakfast (which was fine - standard fry up and a few healthier options).

On checkout I advised the clerk of our poor nights sleep because the beds kept separating and the smell of our bathroom. He just shrugged, grinned and offered his apologies (didn't come across very sincere at all). Overall, the hotel wasn't great and we certainly won't book it again or recommend it to friends.

My husband and I stayed here for three nights and had a very pleasant stay. The room was comfortable, spacious and very clean. We ate in the restaurant each night and chose from the 3 course set menu for 2 which cost 49 euros and included a bottle of wine. The food was superb and the portions were enormous! The staff could not have been friendlier or more helpful, we would definitely stay there again.
