Stayed here recently for one night. The location is lovely and views are beautiful. Checked in and made our way to room. Room was full of dust and cobwebs. Windows were filthy and bathroom not any better. We did have a meal and it was good but slow service. I personally think this hotel is a bit shabby, torn wallpaper in places. Not worth the €99 euro bb that we paid.
Would not return.

Filthy dirty. Grubby towels and dirty crockery. Holes in net curtains and a sewerage like smell in the bedroom. Did not eat there cause food looked awful and it was so dirty I was afraid. It's such a pity because it's a beautiful building in a fab location. Stunning views and close to loads of tourist attractions. Really disappointed as it was a romantic few days away and I could not wait to go home. Will never stay there again!

We took part in a family 'gathering' with over 30 of us descending on this hotel last weekend. Some stayed and some just for dinner. We had a family room (room 6) which was ideal for the 4 of us. The hotel organised babysitting, thanks! And we enjoyed a nice meal and a few drinks, followed in the morning by a relaxed breakfast and a dip in the pool.

The furnishings are a little worn, the service more causal then polished, but this all leads to a comfortable, un-stuffy, relaxed stay. If shiny, new, modern hotels with little soul are your thing, don't come here. to relax in quiet surroundings and receive good value for your money - book in.

Room Tip: Room 6 has a bit of noise spill from the lobby below, but is really 2 connecting rooms with one bath...

We stayed on a short break at this hotel in early July and we had a great time. The food was excellent and the staff very friendly. The pool was an added bonus. We returned very relaxed and will look out for another offer for this hotel.

Room Tip: Ask for a room overlooking the mountains. The rooms at the back of the hotel are very small with no...

When I say old fashioned I mean not every room is exactly the same, the lobby is not like a waiting room. It is a lovely place to stay, big leather couches in the reception, dining room lovely and bright with beautiful views. The food was really good and the staff were very friendly and helpful. When we entered the bedroom I wondered why the bed was where it was as another position would have given more room, but lay on the bed and could see why, the views were breathtaking, we purposely left the curtain open at night just to wake up to the beautifule view. The leisure centre was lovely and again the staff were great. Would recommend a stay especially if looking to relax and eat well.

Stayed in this hotel on 16th and 17th July. Sun was shining and the view was magnificent. Checked in with voucher entitling us to two nights and one evening meal. The receptionist was really pleasant but on checking the coupon she gave us we discovered the evening meal was now reduced to one course only plus glass of wine. We were allocated room 1 which on first appearances seemed small but quaint but on closer inspection was not clean, windows and surrounds were filthy, bathroom fan not working, bath and sink stoppers thrown carelessly by the sink and one towel each! We had our evening meal in the bar area supervised by a very strange man who viewed us suspiciously. My husband went to the bar and ordered our meal. And then we waited. The food when it arrived 20 mins later seemed fine, except one was piping hot and one was cold, cold plate, cold food. As we werent happy about the bedroom I went to talk to whoever was on reception. As there was no one there I left and went back three times until the same man eventually approached me. I voiced my unhappiness about the room and his answer was "sure everyone loves that room" I insisted I wasnt happy and he left to find the receptionist who very gracoiusly moved us to room 9. This was a larger room with double and single bed but still very drab with the dreaded 14" portable tv. But we were much happier. Next morning at breakfast we were greeted by a lovely blonde lady in the breakfast room. Usual selection of cereals and toast, fresh fruit salad and the lady in charge was serving various breakfasts of scrambled eggs, beans on toast and the full irish. Pots of tea and coffee was also served as requested. The full irish consisted of 2 rashers, 2 sausages, egg and mushrooms black and white pudding and tomato garnish. Place went right up in my estimation. Had a great day touring and returned to the hotel to sleep. Went down to breakfast the next morning..GONE was the waitressof yesterday. GONE was the fruit salad. GONE was the pot of coffee. And GONE was the full irish, which now consisted of one very small rasher. 2 sausages and i egg. Looking very small on a large plate We did ask for some pudding and the waitress said she would ask the chef. It did eventually arrive 15 mins later, well after we had finished eating. Feeling annoyed we decided not to delay but to check out immediately. Different receptionist from before unfortuneately. Older woman with fairish hair and no eye contact, no did u enjoy your stay or shall we be seeing you again?. Could be a lovely hotel but the inconsistencies were too much for us. Everytime it tried to succeed it pulled the rug out from under itself. Too risky, would not recommend. p.sp if u are allocated room 7 it is a cupboard and should not be offered as a bedroom!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
