“Warm Cosy Getaway in Roscommon”
Reviewed March 18, 2013 via mobile

A lovely family run hotel with all the amenities. We had booked through a deals page so had an overnight stay with a bottle of bubbly & chocs for €60. Excellent value. After buying the deal, I rang the hotel to book the date, received a reservation number & asked for a confirmation email. On arrival, we were early for 2 pm check in so headed to the bar for lovely lattes. Observed the 2 owners on site throughout our time in the hotel & their attention to customer detail was impeccable. We then proceeded to reception to check in. Bernie the receptionist was welcoming but made reference at volume to the fact that we had a "voucher". In fact it was referred to three times while we were checking in & once when we checked out this morning - all while other guests were waiting at reception. In fact, it was insisted upon when we booked in that we produce the voucher - it was chance that I had a printout in my bag. Didn't think we'd need one when we had a reservation number. So prepare for that. We didn't want to eat in the hotel after this so headed to Gleesons where we spent €70 on food - then to local hostelries where we spent another €80. We had one round of drinks back at the hotel before heading to bed. Room was absolutely fine - a little dated but a welcoming change from corporate (now NAMA owned hotels). The leisure centre is a welcome facility & they are working on its maintenance at the moment. Buffet breakfast was ample & the hotel was lovely & warm, cosy & comfy. Keep up the good work folks. If you don't want discount visitors (€99 is the norm - so it was a 30% discount) - don't advertise on their offers page. Pop a special on your own web page instead.

I've read in some of the reviews that the decor of the hotel was dated but in fairness it's in keeping with the design of the building and to my mind is quite sympathetic to the general style/age of the hotel. The old "Vanity Fair" cover drawings that are hanging on the walls are quite good and there are nice pieces of antique furniture dotted around. We were just staying one night and opted for dinner in the hotel restaurant. The mains of fish were excellent and the 2 waiting staff were professional and attentive. The bar was quiet but was welcoming. Our room (62) was clean and warm and very comfortable. Breakfast was self-service in the restaurant and was really good. In short I really couldn't fault this hotel. We didn't try the spa unfortunately due to time constraints.

Stayed one night last sat night (23/02/13). Lovely ground floor room, old decor but suits the place and makes it cosy. Slept so well with no sounds from other rooms. Breakfast was fantastic with waitress even giving me a scone with fresh cream which is what I wanted. Staff very friendly and nice. Would definitely stay again and would have loved to have tried the great leisure centre but ran out of time. Location great also. 5 stars

Room Tip: Ground floor very handy as no need for lifts and it just past the restaurant

Had lunch there last week, toddler with us, there was no charge for the baby bowl even though we were not ready to eat ourselves, staff were so friendly it was unreal even brought junior out a bowl of ice cream free of charge while we were eating. Service like this is so lacking these days but when you find it its so heartwarming.

Didnt know what to think on the way there after reading some of the other reviews, I found it to be a nice hotel but old. I realise that is the character of the place but it could be done up, its not a 4* in my opinion. Shower not working, old tv with a fhilty remote, no view from the room, spa was "down town". The food was great tho. Very busy restaurant, lovely meal and reasonable too. Even the carvery before we left was spot on.
