The team at the Wallis Arms were exceptionally welcoming and friendly (especially the lady that looked after me for breakfast in the mornings - Lily (?) - she was so warm and kind, and looked after me as if I was family!).
The full cooked Irish breakfast was HUGE! (Double sausage, double bacon, double eggs, mushrooms, black pudding, white pudding, beans - I ordered a 'half' Irish on day 2 which was much more manageable for me), toast, preserves, cereals, fresh fruit, yogurts, fruit juices, fresh baked soda bread, fresh baked scones (Lily wrapped me an extra scone to take for my elevenses!), copious quantities of tea (or filter coffee). They also provided take-out cups for folks wanting a coffee or tea 'on the hoof'.
Rooms were spacious, modern, clean, and well-equipped (inc. kettle, good hairdryer, and decent wi-fi (I was in room 1)). There was plenty of hot water, a good shower (over the bath fixed type, at mains pressure, with a clean (and not too clingy!) shower curtain). Bed was a little on the firm side. Bed linen and towels were fresh, white and clean. My room was warm and comfortable, and allowed two good nights sleep. I wasn't disturbed by the nightclub below - but it was a midweek stay (so I cannot comment on weekend activity).
Evening meals can be taken in the form of a pub meal in the bar - with a some 'home made' specials (I tried the salmon, and the liver - both were delicious).
A couple of watch outs:
Due to the location - on the high street (convenient for all amenities) - there is a 2 hour limit on parking outside the building. I used a large free public car park just round the corner (a 2 minute walk).
There was no milk in the room with the tea / coffee making facility - but it wasn't a hardship to pop down to the bar and fetch some :-)
Lots of people use the bar for evening meals - the 'best' seats are taken early, and the taller stool / tables are not so comfortable for dining.
