“Lovely suite, romantic getaway”
Reviewed March 10, 2014 via mobile

Stayed for one night while touring Meath. The hotel is a bit outside town but we had planned for a night in. The suite was beautiful and as pictured. On arrival the heat was off, fridge was unplugged and there was no glassware or crockery in the room, but this was all cheerily rectified by a quick trip to the front desk and the hotel bar. The restaurant menu looked delicious but we ended up eating in the pub area. The food was delicious, fresh and well-presented. The suite was quiet at the end of the hall and breakfast was fine. Don't be put off by the hotel exterior, all inside areas are clean and look new.

Stayed March 2014, traveled as a couple

Very nice stay, staff were very friendly and helpful Bar food was excellent as was the breakfast. I would definitely stay there again if I had to go to Drogheda for any reason. Unfortunately was there for a funeral.

We just got married here on Saturday and the service from start to finish was amazing!

The staff just couldn't do enough for us AND all of our guests. Check-in was smooth and all our requests were met. The rooms were clean and well appointed and the Bridal Suite was incredible.

The meal was fantastic, so many of our guests have contacted us since to say the food was just amazing.

Christine on the Desk was so chatty and friendly and helped us with any last minute requests we had.

But Marie the wedding planner was simply superb, she is this hotels biggest asset. She calmed us down when we were nervous and her whole demeanour made the day run so much smoother. Everything was done in our time and Marie made sure we had time for just the 2 of us on the day as well.

Everyone who attended was so impressed they will definitely be back and we cannot praise the hotel & staff enough.

Went to a wedding at the hotel . It's in behind a dinner cafe on the dublin road the wedding dinner was very poor the steak was very overdone relly dry and tasteless the rooms window need updateding and bathrooms to . Hotel needs some money spent on the small tings that matter and at €90 a night it has to be better . The staff are great and helpfull but the food needs to be better for weddings a pitty cos everyone had a fun time . Needs to be upgraded

This with regret is really bad value for money. This hotel was once extremely popular for the set Sunday Lunch. Staff service used to be excellent but unfortunately this has gone down in standard. Poor food for the prices charged. Will not return.
