“great few days away with the kids”
Reviewed October 26, 2013

Just spent 2 nights at the Hillgrove Hotel with our 3 year old and 1.5 year old. Fabulous hotel for the kids. Facilities were superb...swimmimg pool, playground/park, indoor play area and games room. Although the kids club is for over 4 year olds our kids could still use the play area as long as we supervised them....think dad had more fun than the kids!!!! Great hotel and will be back.

Just home from a hen do away in this hotel and from the very beginning it was top notch. The staff are brilliant, and very friendly. We did the murder mystery which was great Craic, the detectives nd cops were very entertaining all night, would definitely recommend this package. The only issue I would have is the residents bar closed at 4.30am when us clucking hens were still raring to party on. But all in all a great night had by everyone.

Just returned from a 2 night stay in Hillgrove. The staff are lovely,very helpful and pleasant. Room was very clean and comfortable with plenty of space. We had a meal as part of our stay, and it was just okay. A lot of it was obviously bought in and cooked on the premises - the chips, the pepper sauce, the onion rings all tasted quite bland - my aero cheesecake didn't even have any mint or chocolate in it!!! But it was all edible and the staff were very attentive. The cooked breakfast, on the otherhand was excellent - fresh and well cooked with plenty of choice and really set us up for the day.

Dear Katesam247
Many thanks for taking the time to review our hotel. Thank you for your lovely comments about our staff and bedrooms. Having read your comments about your evening meal I just wanted to clarify that all our desserts are homemade on site. I am sorry that you did not feel the pepper sauce tasted flavoursome as this is also made in the kitchen and I have passed your comments on to our chef as without feedback we cannot strive to improve. Delighted that you enjoyed breakfast. We do hope that you will come back to us again very soon.
Kind regards
Sharon McMahon

We stayed here for 2 night with our 2 kids, 2yrs and 6mnths, as part of a hotel deal which included breakfast and 1 evening meal.
Rooms spacious, clean and comfy. Tv, kettle, wifi, phone in room.
Nice bathroom.
Breakfast was what you would expect from buffet style in a hotel, the fry was good.
Restaurant staff friendly and accommodating.
Dinner was nice although they serve frozen chips, even though the waitress said everything was cooked from fresh. I would challenge this claim.
Outdoor playground is good for the kids and an indoor games room.
Really good bar on the premises serving bar snacks and food. Friendly staff.
We had a nice stay but cant see me rushing back.

We had a wonderful 3 days in this hotel jut before the kids went back to school. The rooms were spacious, staff very friendly and the swimming pool, playground and games room great for the children. The bar was fine and the bar food average but not overly priced. Monaghan town was within walking distance and had some nice coffee shops and restaurants. We took a drive to castle Leslie which is in a very picturesque village. Overall a very enjoyable experience

We have just returned from a wonderful two day break here.The hotel was faultless and attention to detail excellent. All the staff were so friendly and efficient. Spotless room and beautiful food, what more could you want except a return visit.

Just back from our 2nd holiday this year. We stayed in the Hillgrove Hotel, Monaghan and I must say we could not fault it on any account. There were 42 of us and the meals, service, rooms and staff were second to none. I would certainly recommend this hotel. If anyone is not satisfied with anything in a hotel, they should take that complaint up with management at the time.
