Traveled with a group from down the country to Kells for the Wedding of two very good friends! From the minute we walked in the door of the hotel all the staff couldn't be nicer! We arrived before 12noon and as a hotelier I know it is always very difficult to have rooms back for early check ins, however the receptionist was so good in getting a room for us so quickly! The arrivals reception at the wedding was amazing! I want to get the receipe for the glaze on the cocktail sausages!! Yummy! The hotel had a beautiful fire lighting in the main bar which was so welcoming after been out in the cold! The wedding meal and service was fantastic and it is very obivious that it is a family run hotel! The bedrooms were very clean and comfortably! Well deserving of their 2010 Best 3 Star Hotel Award!! Well Done Everyone and keep up the great work!
