I stayed here for 2 nights, even though its not in the most scenic of locations, its in a business park area, didn't bother us at all. We were greeted by the lovely receptionist, who was very helpful telling us the information of the hotel. We got to our room and I was delighted with it! It was just as I had expected to be, a great big bed, that was very comfortable! The room was nice and warm, and so was the bathroom, we didn't touch the heating control at all. Shower was amazing, very powerful, It was very clean also.
We had dinner that was included in our deal, we were both starving as we had just got there, so we were glad we could be fitted in for dinner in the restaurant at such short notice.
My husband had the Chowder for starter, and I had Pea and Bacon soup, both lovely. We both had Sirloin steak for the main, there was an €8 supplement charge each, but we didn't mind. Really enjoyed the meal!
The bar is a bit on the small side, but the lads behind the bar make up for it! haha They were great, very nice and chatty, especially Conor and Pat, Conor went above and beyond when our TV would not work, ( this was at 1am) fair play, he got it going! All the boys were great, and I had a lovely Blue lagoon cocktail, that are only €5 on a Saturday,good value. It was also nice on the Saturday afternoon, the manager came around and spoke with people, had proper conversations with them. He asked us were we staying with them, we said yes, and he asked how we were enjoying it so far. Think its a nice personal touch, that I have not come across in other hotels.
Breakfast was good, good choice, although I couldn't eat much of it due to being hungover, you know yourself! LOL I blame the cocktails! haha
All in, I would definitely recommend this hotel, staff, rooms and food all excellent. If its a nice relaxing stay you want, go for it!
Not a Spa person so cannot comment on that.
