“Mostly hit, only a little bit miss”
Reviewed May 27, 2013

Overall, this is a fine hotel, or essentially two hotels. The 'main bar' has the music, sky sports, and excellent carvery and bar menu. The 'library bar' has no music, tv or food, and is a very fine spot for chilling out. It also houses some excellent whiskeys and the like.

Some details need addressing - the suggestion box on the fourth floor was dirty and the card on it with 'suggestion box' was peeling and cracked. A duty manager should be all over this.

Also, the rooms are not great - old tv, green bathroom tiles, two single beds pushed together to make a double, and ours was a renovated room!.
Eggs benedict for breakfast did not come on an english muffin, but a piece of toast with the crusts cut off. Poor.
This hotel has all the charm of an old hotel, but also suffers from the usual drawbacks of old hotels (i.e. poor rooms).

i would recommend this hotel, but be warned regarding the rooms. The staff were all excellent, and the old girl has charm in spades.

I stayed here for one night on business at the beginning of May 13.

The check-in in the very spectacular lobby was fast and efficient. I had a twin room at the front of the hotel (supermarket and cinema opposite). The TV had UK channels and the free in room internet was excellent. My sleep wasn't great because I couldn't completely shut the modern sash windows. It was very windy night and the wind was howling all night. On a still night this wouldn't have been a problem because I like a ventilated room. The shower in the morning was very poor. The temperature was very, very variable and had I been due to stay any longer I would have complained.

I didn't have breakfast since my rate was room only. I had dinner in the hotel and it was very reasonable for the price, €24 for three courses with tea or coffee. The duck was over done but I still enjoyed the meal.

Check out was fast and efficient and the staff on the front desk should be congratulated.

I would stay again if I was in the area.

Room Tip: Check you can shut the window before unpacking.

Myself, Husband and 2 young children stayed here for a midweek break this week and we had a great time. The food was excellent, the staff very friendly and the hotel is in an excellent location. Everything was just so relaxing and we all loved it. On another note the Tullamore park is brilliant for young children with activities like a zip line and a brilliant water park where they had great fun. We will definitely be back. Thanks for a great stay! I would recommend this Hotel to anyone.

My partner and I stayed for a 2 night break and had a really lovely time.
From the time of booking until we checked out the staff were more than helpful.

Breakfast main course was served to our table which I enjoy rather than having to stand at a buffet.

Only down side was the pool area which I feel needs a bit of TLC.

Will definitely pay another visit.

I stayed here with my wife and infant son,We Got a great deal for a midweek break from group on and boy did this hotel not disappoint. The staff were very friendly especially Killian (I even offered him a job!!!!) and helpful, the food was excellent and service top class, everything is under the 1 roof from Italian restaurant to leisure center etc. To cap it off I was in the leisure center the last morning and was not feeling that well and the lady doing aerobics classes in the pool asked me was I ok and sent over a kind gentleman to give me a bottle of lucozade to get my sugar levels back up, and I did not even complain of being unwell!!!!! Thanks guys for a lovely couple of days and we will be back.
