Like other reviewers, found the hotel rooms to be a bit dated, but this was made up for by the excellent staff, who were always so friendly, helpful and natural.
The facilities in the hotel are great - lovely pool, sauna, jacuzzi, etc. Gym is grand, a little bit old, but does the job. Lobby and bar are great, lovely, big and spacious. Breakfast is generous and lovely. Food in the bar was great too (especially sticky toffee pudding) and very generous portions and fabulous service. Resident's bar is good craic too. Location is good too, just outside the town and very handy for touring. Free wi-fi throughout is a bonus. Lots of information available too on things to do and staff seem very knowledgeable.
Rooms are fine, just a bit dated. Beds are comfy (one duvet was stained though) and the rooms are very big and spacious. The bathrooms are very dated, with old fashioned taps, crazy showers, no free toiletries (well one small bottle of stuff between three of us) and plastic beakers. BUT we did pay next to nothing for the room (hostel prices) so I really really can't complain on this basis.
There were 9 of us staying and they gave us 4 rooms next to each other. We really did have a lovely time and would go back again.
