The food here was lovely, the rooms are clean and comfortable but the service was appalling. Staff seemed to be under pressure and unhappy in their work, they were rude and unhelpful consistently throughout our stay not once were we served with a smile or friendly conversation which contributed to an unpleasant atmosphere, overall recommendation would be to avoid this...

The hotel isn't exactly plush but it is very clean and comfortable. The staff were really friendly, helpful and nice. The breakfast was delicious as was dinner. I would recommend this hotel once you are not expecting a five star experience.

Stayed for one night on business. Rooms where clean and comfortable. Nice fluffy pillows and good bed. The hotel is just on the city limits but staff can order a taxi which is around 10 euro and 5-10 mins has you in the town. Breakfast was buffet style Irish breakfast and was fresh and plentiful.
