Stayed in this hotel for a wedding. It has a 4 star rating but in reality is probably more 2 / 3 star - I have never stayed in a 2 star & have stayed in many vastly superior 3 stars. The heat in the hotel is quite intense as there didn't appear to be any functioning air con'. After I arrived, I met some friends for a drink in the lounge - we quickly retreted to the hotel foyer as it was impossible to have a conversation due to the horrific Irish C&W 'singer' (I use the word loosely). We struggled to get served & when we were 2 glasses were dirty & 1 had a crack! On the day of the wedding after returning from the church, the bride & grrom struggled to enter the hotel as the bell boys persisted in unloading a coach load of tourists luggage & blocked their way!! The wedding food was OK & the service OK.
I had a booked a single room & ended up with a family room - 2 single beds & a double!! It seems to be their most common bedroom configuration as many other guests reorted the same - it appears to be a 'pack as many in as you can' strategy.
Breakfast was fine & freshly cooked, but the tables could do with a proper cleaning as they were sticky from the evening before - the breakfast room doubles up as a lounge in the evenings.
The town of Claremorris is like the town that time forgot, with very little going for it. The Celtic Tiger certainly never set a paw here. There is one nice retaurant, The Old Arch, but the rest of the town really leaves a lot to be desired. In summary, try & avoid this hotel or keep your expectations very, very, very low!
