Booked to stay 2 nights but only stayed 1.
First room we were given was very run down like a 1970's b & b we were moved to a second room not much better
The hotel itself is pretty but the rooms are a huge let down
The breakfast was a good standard the staff were very friendly and helpful
The leisure centre make you wear a cloth swimming hat that is not washed only hand rinsed in water it smelt of hair. You can purchase a new hat !
We would never be back needs total refit

After visiting dozens of hotels up and down the east coast, hearing countless promises, talking to people in Drogheda about their experiences we picked the Boyne valley hotel for our wedding reception. Looking back, this was without doubt the best decision we made during the process of organizing our wedding.

Rita and all the other staff were nothing less than absolutely exceptional. Every expectation was exceeded and the flexibility of everyone in the hotel before, during and after the day was extraordinary.

We highlighted a number of areas where we felt improvements were required and in every instance actions were promptly taken.

Communication with staff was on-going during the preparation and planning of the wedding. NO question or request was too big or too small. This made us very comfortable that everything was taken care of so we had no need to worry about the reception at all.

All our guests really enjoyed our wedding. This was in no small way thanks to the staff and environment of the Boyne valley hotel. It was decorated nicely for Christmas, the hotel really got into the spirit of the celebration and even when a few guests….. Including the groom stayed up longer than everyone else the staff were very friendly and talkative.

Another thing worth mentioning was the flexibility of the chef. We asked for a few changes to the standard wedding menu and they were happy to oblige.

Overall, we just couldn’t be happier with the Boyne valley. We would recommend it to anyone.
Our sincerest thanks to every single member of staff that made our wedding an unforgettable occasion for both us and our guests.

We went to have afternoon tea on 6/1/13. This hotel badly needs a visit from the hotel inspector!!
Cleanliness is zero,Service is very poor.

We requested coffee and scones and were served coffee which was stewed and the sconces arrived 30minutes later!! The milk jug was disgustingly dirty with a crust around it's rim.When we asked that it be changed for a clean one, it was returned to us UNCHANGED - and still filthy!!

How is it possible that the Department of Health have not visited and done something about this hotel and country club??

Please do not visit or stay here until it's cleanliness and service changes.

Room Tip: Please do not stay/visit here until cleanliness and service changes!

Stayed in the Boyne Valley Hotel for 2 days over the New Year with my Husband and eight year old son. We arrived New Years eve and availed of the leisure centre straight away, the pool was great my son loved it, and was in it a couple of more times before we headed home, and a lso had a game of tennis. The Atmosphere for ringing in the New Year was really great in the terrace Bar which is very Family friendly and glass of champange were handed around for ringing in the bells at 12 o clock it was a great night. We had dinner bothe evenings in the Terrace bar and I must say it was really lovely, bothe myself and the hubby had the specials which are brilliant value for a family on a budget, 10 euro for a dinner and a pint or a glass of wine, amazing. The kiddies menue is also great value too. The Hotel is a little bit dated but spotless clean. The most outstanding thing about the hotel is the Staff, both in the Hotel and Leisure centre they were all fantastic, very nice and friendly could'nt do enough both on arrival and during our stay, will most certainly be heading back soon.

We stayed here last weekend as we were visiting friends in Drogheda. The hotel exceeded our expectations to no end. We were greeted with a warm and friendly reception on entering the hotel. We mentioned to the gentleman at the desk that we needed to get to baltray and within minutes he had a full map printed for us. The room we were giving was clean and spacious with a lovely view of the garden. We had a snack in the bar before heading out for the evening and the food was great. We both got the salmon special and it was delicious. We arrived back to the hotel for a night cap in the bar and there was music on and a good atmosphere. Again the service was prompt & friendly, We had a quick breakfast the next morning before heading back to Dublin, plenty of choice on offer and good value for money. All and all we had a great stay, and plan to come back for longer next time.

Got a vocuher from friends to stay the night at Boyne Valley. Booked over the phone and was told we would receive the main Suite (seen as we were just married a few weeks before hand) this was mentioned on the phone to the lady and she booked us in the main suite. On arrival, we cheked in and made our way to our room. No main suite and just a standard room. didnt bother us, so never mentioned it to the staff. Overall, a nice stay. I would try somehwere different in Drogheda as it is a good 10mins taxi out of the town centre. Could do with an upgrade on decor etc, but thats what the hotel is classed for....its old feel!!!
Food was lovely. Free drink on arrival (with voucher)
Staff nice and chatty. They also agreed to let my husband stay up the residence bar to watch the UFC fights on very late in the night/early in the morning!!
Nice hotel and had a good time while staying there.
Never got to see the leisure centre, but looks nice in the photos. Grounds are lovely and well kept back from the main road.
We were thankful of the present, so enjoyed the night away :)

Used a voucher offer for 2 adults and 1 teenager. A warm welcome at Reception and a very cold one in the room! The heating was broken and it was absolutely freezing. We all set in our coats and the staff told us that the manager had gone to buy heaters - would be interesting in the arctic like bathroom. We were eventually moved with a very helpful member of staff to a better room with heat. We had to ask for our welcome drinks voucher. The dinner menu sounded quite adventurous with venison but was disappointing - vegetables almost raw. Dining staff seemed disorganised and one poor girl knew zero about anything; seemed to be banished to stand at a vacant "welcome podium" on her own for the rest of the night!
Breakfast was very average - tinned fruit and a fry overlooked. Again, the service was disorganised.
The country club aspect is very old-fashioned, old lockers,old tiles, old showers - again only redeemed by a nice staff. You need a need a cap by the way for the pool.
Would never go back.
