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.
