LOCATION: Excellent. It is very central in Maynooth. Close to all amenities, bars & restaurants. Perfect if you wanted to stay away from the airport (about 40mins journey) but near enough to catch the Airport Hopper bus from the airport coach park (which I definitely recommend) The bus stop is right opposite the hotel. HOTEL IMAGE: This hotel is old type & probably could do with an image overhaul but the modern Bar & the Leisure facilities more than make up for it. HOTEL RECEPTION: The two receptionists who dealt with my check-in went out of their way to accommodate my request for a 'room with a view' & I really appreciated that. This proved to be a good start. BEDROOM: I was particularly pleased with my room as it was so spacious & very comfortable. I can't comment on sleep quality as I had a headache all night both nights (no fault of the hotel) so i was glad the bed was comfortable otherwise my discomfort would have been made worst. BATHROOM: My disappointment here was the shower did not give very hot water so I had to have a bath both mornings.I notified the hotel so hopefully that will be rectified for future guests. BAR & BREAKFAST: The Bar menu & evening Restaurant menu does have extensive offerings at decent prices. I had a bar meal which suited me & no complaints. Wish I had a cocktail with it! but completely forgot. The Thai menu looks appetising if not a little pricey. If i wasn't alone I might have considered it.The breakfast is very good however my one big criticism was that every table had a jug of milk which I personally think is unhygienic when it has been left for long periods of time.I hope that this is something that will change in future. LEISURE CENTRE: I was particularly annoyed I did not bring my gym or swim-wear because the facilities here are excellent. The two swimming pools with sauna/jacuzzi & the massive gym looked amazing. If you stay here you must remember to bring your gear. If I am ever in the area, I would definitely remember to bring my gym/swim wear just to stay in this hotel!! I was overall impressed with the hotel & I would certainly recommend it to anyone who is in the area.
