This was the worst experience I have had in a hotel. The rooms were freezing cold no hot water in the morning and we had to leave our coats on while eating in the bar because it was so cold.

We demanded out money back within 45 minutes
- Outside of Hotel Filthy first impression - Room wasn't ready as promised - Pint of Guinness was WARM that was ordered while waiting on room - Changed to Heineken to be told all 4 Taps were not working - Partner went to the toilet & came back & advised the tile was hanging down from the ceiling (health & safety both up to standards) - Requested WIFI code SIX times from bar staff as no signal whatsoever & needed to check on kids at home through WhatsApp - I myself went to the reception &was advised there was NO WIFI it was broke & they are still waiting on someone to fix it - Went to the Ladies bathroom and theu were filthy, out of all the toilet cubicles not ONE Square of toilet roll and three forks on the ground - can't say they were cleaned in a while I'm disgusted My mother's day night away was ruined I didn't even want to stay after going out to ask for toilet roll there was another couple with young kids demanding their money back also after only checking in less than an hour!!! Shocking Do Not Book Completely ruined my night away ended up coming home and not so much as an apology from them at the desk or did they look surprised when I asked for a refund

a bit disappointed
The hotel was beautifully decorated for Christmas and the lobby looked lovely. The staff were more than pleasant and helpful BUT there was no hot water in the shower – this was a major shock and inconvenience.There was only one hand towel in the room although there were two bath towels The television did not work (despite valiant efforts by the woman on duty that night), nor did the televisions in several other rooms work. One had to goo the reception desk to get the wifi code because the one given over the phone from reception did not work. The receptionist then input the correct wifi code and explained that the codes had to continually change for security reasons (school children in the lobby). The fruit salad at breakfast was utterly tasteless, the orange juice lacked any flavour, and the coffee was not very good. The brown bread was excellent while the Danish pastries were overcooked and over iced. The smoked salmon pieces looked like they were totally dried out. I told all of that to reception when leaving and was told that the general manager would phone me - a few weeks later, I have not heard a word. I'm very disappointed, for me and for exceptionally good staff.

My family and I have stayed here several times over the years. Each time the staff are friendly and helpful, the rooms are comfortably and the food is delicious. I would highly recommend a staying here, it is one of the nicest hotels in the area. I would also recommend exploring all options before booking to ensure the best price.

One night stopover
Modern hotel but perhaps just a bit frayed round the edges, restaurant and bar area was really chilly - it was a very cold night but the rooms were warm and a really smart bathroom.

Handy hotel close to where we needed to be.
A one night stopover on the way to Dublin airport. Large Hotel, and, in a modern way, quite grand. Room very comfortable and warm - it was very cold outside! The public areas were less warm though, especially the bar area. Food ok in the restaurant with nice staff.

Would not stay again
Cold hotel, very noisy stayed on level 1 band and music very loud. Heating wouldn't work. Electricity broke in our room so got moved for second night to two single beds even though paid for a double room. No remote for tv and then when we got one tv only had 1 station. Heating wouldn't work in second room. Food was okay but will not be back.
