We arrived as a family to stay here for a night. I had booked a triple room and an executive room. We arrived a little earlier than planned (1.30 pm) but to our delight the rooms were ready. We were sent up to our rooms on the 2nd floor by a very friendly man on reception to drop off our bags.
The rooms were spacious and very clean, if not a little too warm - I had to turn off the radiator and leave the window open all night to cool down.
The extra money I had paid for the executive room I didn't feel was worth it. The only added extras were 2 robes and a bottle of still water. I had thought that it would have been bigger, perhaps a nicer tv, but other than that there was no problems at all.
The hotel is located in between several car sales garages and about 10-15 minutes drive from town, but that meant a quieter night as there was no noise outside.
There was a mix of people in the hotel, a few sports teams staying there that night, along with some other families, groups etc.
The Irish rugby match was on in the bar, which was good to see and the lobby was busy, with people relaxing for the afternoon which was nice to see.
The breakfast the next morning was nice, plenty of cereals, yogurts, some fruit and bread along with the usual fry up.
Overall a lovely trip, thanks very much.
