Now that it's all over, myself and Aidan just want to express our appreciation to all the staff.

The reason that this is not a "five star" review, is because it is a review of two halves. It is a modern hotel, and my personal preference is for those with a little more character. This said, we spent a very enjoyable stay at the Ormonde. A minor niggle, was the somewhat "graunchy" car park barrier, outside our window,... More

The Ormonde doesn't feel like a 4 star, more a 2-3 star . The bed was hard enough to give me backache, there were stains on the walls, the decor was dated, the bath was far too shallow and about the only thing that was good was the swimming pool. I was quite disappointed as the 2 nights cost us... More

this was a great hotel. We stayed only one night but I should have used it as a base hotel. Local attractions are walkable. The hotel staff were extremely helpful, the rooms were clean comfortable with more than the usual room size with larger bathrooms. Very nice bar area inside and outside weather and time of the year permitting. Wide... More
