I'm always checking trip advisor for reviews especially before booking somewhere not knowing anything about the place. I understand that people have different opinions and experiences but I have to disagree with the bad reviews about this hotel! It was absolutely fantastic. We were looking for a luxury getaway for the weekend and that's exactly what we got! We booked a standard room and but seemed like a superior! Seemed new and fresh looking and we got a fantastic two nights sleep in that lovely bed! Unlimited drinking water for the room was also a bonus!
Ate breakfast and sandwich food in the bar... Both good quality and delicious especially the cakes in the little cafe! (The breakfast area could do with being a little bigger though!)
Leisure facilities were nice to use.
Drinks in the bar were a good price! I always go by the rule that if a pint of lager is under 5euro it's fine by me! (€4.70) This Guinness wasn't too great but plenty of people drinking it so maybe we were just being fussy!
One thing I would mention is that the hotel is a little far from Thurles on terms of taxi fare... The fare is €12 each way so if you're having a night out just save money aside for that. (Star of India is a great Indian restaurant in the town!)
Overall myself and my partner had a fantastic stay in this hotel, lovely place and staff. Would highly recommend!
