My husband and I bought the Groupon deal and stayed at the Ashbourne last week. We had a lovely stay and although my husband would say that I am a prolific moaner I have little or no complaints.
This is not a luxury hotel, the rooms are quite basic and the whole place is a little worn but it is a great place to stay as it has lots of character and lovely friendly staff.
We found the Ashbourne to be very comfortable, the rooms were warm and clean with plenty of space for all our stuff. The bathroom was basic but clean, no little extras but thats to be expected at the great price they offer.
On our first night we dined in the bar, the food was very nice and the service was great. There was a good atmosphere in the bar with locals as well as guests enjoying a drink and a bite to eat. On the second night we dined in the restaurant upstairs, the starter and main course we lovely but the dessert wasn't great (bought in rather than homemade).
The one thing that did let the hotel down was the breakfast, I dont eat a cooked breakfast myself but my husband was really disapointed with what was on offer - a cooked buffet of eggs, sausages, bacon, beans, mushrooms and hashbrows that had all gone a bit soggy. It would have been nice to have some fresh fruit.
