This was a nice, modern hotel and is the only one in town (actually Doolin is this hotel plus a couple of other pubs). The hotel has a cafe, pub (one of those horrid sports bars), toursit info and a large car-park. The staff are a little offish- I think they have been told too many times that they are the best hotel in town. They forgot to clean our room one day but apologised with 'these things happen'. Our corridor stunk of cannabis for most of the time we were there, I'm just unsure if it was a guest getting stoned or the room service staff having a sneaky spliff- hence the room not being cleaned? We were also a bit annoyed that we asked for a quiet room but were dumped next to the reception toilet which entertained us regularly with hand drier blast noise.
I'm being a little harsh as the breakfast was excellent and its well located for the Burren and the harbour for boat trips to the islands and famed cliffs.
Some of the other boozers in town are more cozy than the hotel pub and do nice food.
