“There for a hen party”
Reviewed March 5, 2013

I found this hotel to be fantastic, I would of given it 5 stars only for the fact there was something wrong with the heating in our room but the rest of our party didn't have a problem with their heating.
We were there for a hen party and had a fantastic time. The staff were really friendly,the rooms huge and breakfast was one of the best I've had in any hotel in Ireland.
We were up until all hours having sing songs in the residents bar and the bar is away from all of the rooms so it would be impossible to keep anyone awake.
We had dinner in their Italian restaurant and it was yummy. Also the car park is separate but if you are there for B & B, its included in the price (which is should be anyways).
So overall a great weekend in a great hotel.

Huge rooms, extremely clean, breakfast is outstanding. Plenty of hot water and towels, leisure centre is awesome. We stayed there and it was a very busy weekend so service in the restaraunt was hectic and we were forgotten a few times. That said the food was lovely, the girls on reception were really lovely, the parking was right outside the door, the rooms were really comfy and the whole place was laid back and a pleasure to stay in. I will definitely return.

Room Tip: ask for a quiet room or an adjoining room if there are a few of you. They are always happy to accom...

Half way around my trip of Ireland I stuck upon the best hotel of my travels.
The Heritage is an almost overpoweringly designed hotel tucked in the back streets of Portlaoise. With Greek temple style entrance way.

You walk in and think style and excellent design from the outset. Wonderfully helpful staff at check in and the manager was brilliant in sorting out a small problem with the room (TV channels not working).
The bedroom was huge with a double and single bed, and large bathroom. Wonderfully quiet inside and out, even though the hotel was clearly quite busy. A good car park is located right next door with the town centre being a 2 minute stroll along a side street.

The Italian restaurant server excellent food and the bars looked inviting although too dark to enjoy a pub grub meal in. There were a few other food and drink options in the hotel building although all were closed on a Monday night.

All for under 60 Euro - the cheapest nights accommodation too.

We were very impressed with all aspects of the hotel during our stay. We had a minibus which we were allowed to park in the bus bay at the hotel without any problems whatsoever. The staff were very friendly at all times and helped us when needed without delay. The facilities were first class especially the swimming pool which was superb. Would definitely stay at the hotel again and would recommend it to anyone whether for business or pleasure. Many thanks for a great stay.

Im just back from a short break at the Heritage Hotel Portlaoise with my friend and our two daughters. I had previously been for a Hen weekend last year.
The service you receive is second to none, with very friendly and professional staff, nothing is too much for them. The rooms were clean and spacious. The food was wonderful with a wide range of food for breakfast including both continental and full Irish breakfast. You have a choice of two restaurants on site. Kellys Foundry which has wonderful steaks and burgers and Spago, the Italian which is equally delicious. The depute restaurant manager Aidan Moore was a breath of fresh air, very professional but also friendly and chatty, he was a wealth of knowledge about the local area. also worthy of a mention is the spa facilities. The pool was great, very clean, as was the sauna, steam room and jacuzzi. The staff at Ealu, the beautician within the Hotel does fab treatments which are half price Mon - Wed. Well worth a visit.

Room Tip: The family rooms are great, well located within the Hotel and spacious
