Having stayed in the hotel for a badly needed break following a bereavement. We were really looking forward to the pool. (2 adults and 2 children 2+4). We were advised there was a children's pool.When we arrived, the water in this pool was above our children's head. As our children can not swim, we asked for armbands and were asked for €20. We did not have this money to spend for a quick splash in addition to paying the hotel, Disappointed that safety was not the main objective, It felt like a 4star hotel with a Ryanair policy. The hotel itself was fine. But we did feel let down by the experience. I would recommend the leisure center have some spare arm bands if needed to paying guests. Had this being the case, we would of being happy to return,

My husband and I stayed in this hotel on a 69 euro voucher deal. We were pleasantly surprised at how good it was. There was no mention of vouchers and we were checked in very efficiently by the friendly receptionist. Our room was very spacious with a four poster bed and large bathroom. The decor is very tasteful and is in keeping with the character of the hotel. There was a bottle of sparkling wine and chocolates waiting for us when we arrived.

We had lunch and dinner in the bar where we found the staff to be extremely friendly and courteous. The food was also delicious and reasonably priced. I had seafood chowder which was one of the nicest I have had anywhere. There was a real buzz about the place and the bar was packed that night. There were a lot of locals there which is always a good sign.

The hotel owner was very visible and was continuously walking around and talking to guests which is a nice touch. I found all the staff to be very pleasant and their customer service skills were excellent. The hotel was very, warm and cosy and the lesiure centre is quite good. We definitely will be paying a return visit to this hotel and I would have no hestitation in recommending it to family and friends.

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
