I stayed at the Tullamore Court Hotel last weekend and wasn’t overall impressed. First up their online booking system is rather confusing. My search for a single room for one night threw up the choice between 1 room B&B for € 220 (they must be joking)! or a “package” including dinner and 1 Room B&B for € 120. Very odd and unnecessary as I was not going to avail of the dinner. The hotel also immediately deducts 10% from you credit card for just making the booking. Normally no pre-payment should be necessary when booking with a credit card.
Check in was swift though booking requests (smoking room) were not complied with. The room was mid size (one double bed and one single) and would have been ok without that extra single bed. The décor was decidedly eighties: pine panelling on the walls, pine windows and garish colours. It really could have done with some updating. The bathroom was small and not the cleanest I have ever seen.
The hotel bar was not very comfortable as they had loud ‘live entertainment’ which made conversations virtually impossible.
I ordered breakfast in my room, normally the best feature in Irish hotels. What was delivered was a poor excuse for breakfast. Dried up bacon and sausages with half a tomato and some ancient scrambled eggs.
When I asked for a taxi on check out a so called hackney cab arrived (filthy on the inside and outside) with other passengers already in it. The hotel may want to review who they call when their business guests require a taxi.
