Pricey for what it is
Location is excellent but the price does not reflect the standard of room. Very expensive at 150 per night considering the rooms are extremely basic and small. Standard is comparable to a travelodge or similar except smaller rooms in the skeffington. Service was good and staff were nice but definitely not value for money. This hotel should not cost more than 100eur a night including breakfast.

1/5 Terrible

Travelled with partner
Disliked: Cleanliness, amenities, property conditions & facilities
The hotel should not have reopened - there was no hotel facilities. No breakfast, no room service, no access to the bar for dinner or drinks, no room cleaning or fresh towels for the second night. It was a disgrace. Never ever again will I stay there. Liam
