My group availed of an offer of €65 for bed, breakfast and dinner. My room was booked after the rest of the group, but there was no question of a more expensive price for the single room I was allocated: I only paid €65 like everyone else.
The hotel is beautifully decorated, whether in the restaurant, the bedroom, or the bathrooms. Bed was very comfy and the bathroom was very spacious with a combo bath/shower.
The dinner was plentiful and delicious. The set menu was a far cry from tired, dry hotel carvery, offering a wide variety of delicious starters and mains... All dishes were tried by someone or other at our table and all were enjoyed. (I had ribs to start and thai red curry for the main; both were gorgeous.) We were so stuffed that only a couple of us went for dessert, and in a group mostly comprised of women that's an impressive achievement!
Breakfast offered a few different hot food options (e.g. full Irish, scrambled eggs and salmon, etc.) and the standard other foods (cereals, fruit, yogurts, juice, tea/coffee). It was all quite yummy and set us up for the day. Breakfast was available nice and late too, unlike some other hotels that wouldn't serve you if you came down at 10:30am (which some members of my group did).
The staff were lovely from the moment we checked in until our departure. Couldn't have asked for better.
All in all, getting such a great room, brilliant service, and delicious food for only €65 was a delight. I would definitely stay in this hotel again.
One caveat: I could hear some noise from the nightclub up in my room on the third floor when I went to bed shortly after midnight. It wasn't very loud and didn't keep me awake. That said, I was extremely tired; maybe if I wasn't so tired it would have kept me from sleep for a while. If complete silence at night is very important to you, either bring earplugs that you know to work well (I have no clue if the free ones available at hotel reception were any good) or settle to give this place a miss. If not, then I cannot recommend this hotel high enough.
