“Nice Hotel with equally nice staff”
Reviewed June 12, 2012

My partner and I have just enjoyed a very pleasant stay at the Bracken Court Hotel. Right from the outset the young lady on reception was welcoming and this turned out to be a common theme throughout. All the staff were friendly and helpful. We ate in the restaurant on the first night and the food (and service) was excellent so we also dined the hotel bar on the second night. The room was spacious and clean with everything required. There were weddings at the hotel on both days so it meant that the one lift was busy at times however it was not enough to affect our overall satisfaction. The good points far outweighed any slight inconvenience. We would definitely recommend this hotel.

We are just back from the Bracken Court and have to say we were very impressed. The reception area and bar area are very well presented. The room we were in (319) was spacious, plenty of storage space, tea and coffee, tv what more could you want apart from clean which indeed it was. Towels, shower gel, soap, shampoo and body lotion supplied in bathroom. On thursday night we were booked in for a meal in the restaurant and we were delighted with the menu. I had the carrot and ginger soup and my partner had the pork belly ribs (which he has raved about ever since). We both had steak for our main course and as a steak lover I have to say that this was the best steak I have ever tasted and well presented. We had dinner the second night in the bar and the platter for 2 is a must and the meal was equally as good as the night before. But my praise has to go to the staff. Lidia was our waitress on the first evening and what a joy she was. Nothing was too much for her ( even to the point of supplying a plaster for my awkward partner ). Such a lovely pleasant and attentive young woman. Sabrina looked after us on the second night and again a very lovely young lady who was very attentive and very friendly. Lisa on reception I have to say was excellent at her job and very knowledgable and again nothing was to much. We really enjoyed our stay and will certainly be recommending the hotel to others.

Myself and my new Husband had our wedding reception here on 4th May and we couldn't of been happier with the service and professional manner of all the staff at The Bracken Court to ourselves and all our guests. Any time we've been to the hotel the food has been delicious and hotel rooms spotless, can't wait to go back.

My husband and I stayed here during the June 2012 bank holiday. From the moment we arrived we were treated exceptionally well. Receptionist, at check in, was lovely. Very helpful. The room was quite spacious which was a nice surprise. Room and bathroom all very clean. We had dinner in the bar on our first night and it was really delicious. I had the seafood chowder and my husband had the burger. No complaints from either of us. Clean plates afterwards. Staff were really friendly and efficient. This makes a change from other hotels we have stayed in. So refreshing to see staff with smiles on their faces.
The following morning we had to be up early. Breakfast is served from 7:30 but as we were earlier than that we were allowed into the restaurant to have cereal, tea, coffee and toast, which was brilliant.
Overall, I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone wanting a great stay in a very friendly hotel at a superb price. We'll definitely be back next year.

Room Tip: We had a room on the 4th floor so it was away from the busy road below and we could barely hear the...

My wife and I and two kids (9 and 1) just spent the weekend at this fabulous hotel. The room was spacious and spotless with excellent facilities. We were spoilt for choice with wifi access. The food and service in the restaurant was first class. The management have to be commended for the staff employed there. Went on a day trip to Ardgillan Castle, 10 mins away. Dublin also easy access by train or Road. Town also had a Summerfest on the weekend we stayed added bonus for the kids. Friendly staff, friendly people of the town. We were winners all round. We will be back.
