Arrived early evening and greeted by a very polite and pleasant receptionist.
Room was spotless maybe on the smaller side, however only two of us so it doesn't matter it's only for sleeping. Safety box in wardrobe is a plus. Bed was comfortable, unlike last reviewer who should note back pain is caused by soft mattress not hard, I slept like a baby.
Leisure centre is a credit to the hotel and staff who maintain it to a very high standard. Sauna , pool and steam room all spotless. I also liked the baby chair in wall very handy if I had have brought kid on break. Short and towel spinner also an extra nice touch. A couple of tiles being replaced but well signed around the area.
Bar had a great atmosphere and lobby was very inviting and cosy to have a quiet drink, again staff here ever so polite and the floor service was great.
The highlight to me was the restaurant, I've been in many cities and countries and the food served to us on our stay was some of the best I ever ate, pork belly and scallops was heaven, I'd nearly drive back now thinking of it.
I found breakfast was also good, and whilst it is self service, the sausage, bacon and pudding was all fresh and not dried out as it can be in places.
All in all I will return and bring the little people next time. Roscommon wasn't as bad I thought it would be.
