“Another wonderful holiday”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 14, 2013

We again had the pleasure of returning to the Holiday Home at the Park Hotel, we actually had the same house, how great. Again superb, only this time we had fantastic weather, not that it really matters, there is so much to do. I have the opportunity to visit family and friends, while the remainder of the family have the world at their feet to enjoy the attractions of Dungarvan. Ideal spot for a holiday or short break, with every amenity you could wish for. The staff could not do enough. I mention to the staff about a blockage with the shower, walked up town to get a newspaper and could not believe that when I returned (not 20 minutes later) the problem was sorted - excellent excellent service. Many thanks to Pierce and all the staff - Keep up the good work and see you all again soon

Room Tip: Make the most of the amenities, you'll kick yourself if you dont!

I stayed here for business purposes. A colleague booked so I don't know how that went. The best thing about the hotel is the location - just a short walk from the centre of Dungarvan and with pleasant views of the Colligan river. For driving purposes, it is very accessible from the N25. My impressions of the building itself: unexciting presentation at the front, a pleasant reception area and bar, and an inexplicable huddle of extensions. My bedroom and ensuite bathroom were clean and tidy. The only fault was that there were no batteries in the safe lock. My colleagues and I had dinner in the restaurant - €19.50 for 2 courses and tea or coffee. No one complained about the main course but what was billed as a praline pie turned out to be a rather substandard pecan pie. Check-in and check-out were efficient. All staff were willing and able. None of us used the leisure centre so we can't comment.

We stayed at this hotel for one night, the first hotel room we were offered did not have internet access so i rang reception i was given the password but wasnt informed that it did not work in the room we were in, so I rang back and asked for an alternative room, when we managed to get into a room the carpet had dirty marks and the shower needed a revamp, but the Internet worked. This hotels decor and fittings are weary but staff are pleasant within the hotel.
The breakfast room carpet needed a desperate deep clean,(I did express my concerns to reception before leaving ) breakfast was very average.

Stayed here during bank holiday in August. We found the rooms were nice and quite spacious. Swimming pool/leisure area was also very good. Bar is quite large but could do with some entertainment at night. Breakfast was lovely but breakfast room can be very busy. I found the food in both the bar and restaurant was okay but could be a lot better with not a lot to choose from. Staff in hotel very helpful. Hotel is in a good location, a nice 5 minute walk to centre of town with lovely views from the front of hotel. Dungarvan itself is a lovely town with some nice restaurants and bars. Would stay again if in the area.

I stayed at the Park Hotel for one night on Saturday in early September, with my partner.

Let me first state the positive: the staff. The majority of the staff were pleasant and helpful, and must be commended for this. However, the establishment is run-down and in dire need of a renovation works.

We booked with the on-line rate on their website which was 135 euro per double room with double occupancy. As a frequent traveller, I was shocked to see the rooms on offer, and the overall look and feel of the hotel. For 135 euro, and a 4 star rating, I expected much more as it is not a negligible amount to spend on a hotel room in a small town in the South East of Ireland, and without a shadow of a doubt, this hotel was the poorest value for money I have experienced in Ireland overall.

Upon check-in, we went to our room to discover that:

a) It looked onto a dumpster and a number of overflowing bins (see image)
b) There were no net curtains on the window, so to change clothes we would have to close the curtains
c) There was only 1 lamp, and 1 light in the door area so the room as very dark (making the no net curtains issue more pertinent)
d) There was a roll down murphy bed, with a cheap wooden frame surrounding the mattress

I immediately went to Reception, where a very helpful front desk employee switched our room, to a standard room with 2 king size double beds. The employee was courteous and helpful, and could not be faulted in any way.

The second room was an improvement, if only that there was a 'normal' bed, and adequate light in the room. The bathroom had been partially updated, which was positive, but the overall feeling of the room was extremely worn (paint marks, peeling paint from the door, worn furniture).

I have attached a variety of images from my room and immediately outside, along the corridor.

It could be argued that I should have brought my additional complaints to the staff, however, how do you constructively address the fact that the whole hotel is worn and quite run-down?

If no renovation work is planned, then I think that the cheapest rate needs to be lowered to reflect the poor state of the furniture, fixtures and fittings.

Breakfast was included in our rate, and was acceptable. The restaurant area has obviously been redecorated, but I would say that the quality, presentation and cleanliness of the breakfast buffet/dining room was definitely sub-standard for a 4 star hotel.

The hotel is obviously centred around events (weddings) and housing those guests. However, with an upgrade, this hotel would be good value for money, in a great location. It is not acceptable however, to charge a quite high basic rate, as well as claim to be a 4 star hotel. Either the ratings system in Ireland is seriously at fault, or hotel management coordinated the inspection very well, and kept the inspectors away from much of the hotel.

I've written such a long review because I feel strongly that price charged for this product/service (e.g. renting a hotel room) was outrageously overpriced.

I would also strongly suggest that those 5 star reviews previously submitted under this entry, must be disingenuous.

We stayed at the Park Hotel in Dungarvan, when we saw a special offer advertised for 159 Euro each for three bed and breakfasts and one dinner.
From the moment we entered the doors, we were welcomed with open arms by the extremely friendly and efficient staff.
the dinner we had was the best meal my husband and I ever had and we have traveled extensively..
What I really liked was that breakfast was cooked to order and arrived piping hot. I'm coeliac and everything gluten free that I needed was there.
. There is a beautiful leisure center and gym attached tot he hotel. Our room was huge, a double bed and a single bed with en-suite, tv,desk and tea and coffee making facilities.
There are many rooms in the hotels to totally relax, from the extensive library to the sun room, which leads on to a patio and decking area with tables and chairs.
The park is within walking distance of the beautiflul Town of Dungarvan. with its picturesqe harbor, and is only three miles from beautiful Clonea Beach.
It is easy to realise that this hotel is family owned because of the efficiency of the operation, the excellent service and the welcoming atmosphere. we will return. Valerie Sweeney, Journalist.

Room Tip: Because the large car park is at the front of the hotel, no traffic noise can be heard. We were at...
