We had high expectations booking a superior room over looking River Shannon. The first night we didn’t get too much sleep due to late night drinking. Hotel is too warm. We didn’t know that a big kick boxing tournament was taking place which ruined our experience. We were also offer a free complimentary gift on arrival, ordered it but never received it. The two bar staff were lovely and so were breakfast staff.

We stayed here over the weekend of 6-7th April. The hotel is in a perfect location in the centre of the town and guests have a grandstand view of the River Shannon and St Peter and Paul's Church.
Our disappointment was that the bedrooms are getting tatty and clearly overdue for refurbishment. Moreover, maintenance is questionable when a cracked handbasin is left in situ in bedrooms. The full width clothes rail in our wardrobe was missing and replaced by a much shorter rail in the space allocated for the ironing board.
The public rooms are adequate but like the bedrooms would benefit from being updated. In particular, the chairs in the dining room are so worn that the seat padding has sunk and when seated it feels too low for the table. Surely it's not too much to ask for better quality or less worn dining chairs?
The buffet breakfast was "tired" with cold meats clearly re-offered from the previous days buffet.
Put simply, this hotel needs a shake up in its management and a complete refurbishment of the whole building.

Dear Cyril,
Many thanks for taking the time to review your recent stay in the hotel. We have invested €3million into the hotel over the last two years, both front and back of house. We do of course take your comments on the restaurant on board and can confirm that the refurbishment of the restaurant will come into play at the back end of this year or early next year. We do hope that we can welcome you back to the hotel then to see the further upgrades.
We will indeed take all of your comments on board and thank you for taking the time.
Kind regards,
Fergus O'Donovan

Nice hotel, nice room, good location but didn’t get a wink of sleep thanks to the MMA event you hosted on Sunday night. Drunken people storming up and down til about 430am roaring and shouting, fighting, taking phone calls, banging on doors, slamming doors, having room parties, even had to listen to one of them vomiting. If you’re going to host this sort of event think about the clientele you’re attracting and how they will impact your nice normal guests and the reputation of your hotel. You did to be fair put a stop to the worst of the room parties but it never went properly quiet and the corridor noise on top of the noise from the drunken smokers outside the main front door under our window was just intolerable. And yes you offered to move us but with no guarantee of a quiet room and as we were in our pyjamas and with our stuff all unpacked it was just not worth it. Absolute nightmare - a shame as it could have been a lovely stay.

We stayed for three nights whilst attending a wedding. What a wonderful hotel, great value for money and the most comfortable bed I’ve slept in for a long time. I’m going to buy myself a new mattress - I hadn’t realised how uncomfortable my own bed was!
