An older style of hotel that has been kept up. In fact during the day renovations were ongoing but stopped at 5pm. Staff were very friendly. We had dinner which was delicious along with a good Irish full breakfast the next day.

The hotel is undergoing some refurbishment but apart from some areas being painted it didn't seem too intrusive. The room was okay but had everything you needed including brand new memory foam mattresses. I slept the best I had in ages. So much I might consider one myself. Food nice and quite reasonable in price. Lovely staff.

The hotel really has come up a long way with the quality of there food. Our waiter was a bit "Funky" in his was but was nice and friendly which is hard to find in Carlow town hotels. The food is well priced but the menu is the same menu for some time now.

Not a 5star but good, efficient, friendly support to our visit in the area. My first choice there every time. I'll be back for sure. Close enough to Dublin , Kilkenny sndthe while south east to use as a touring base. As I say, it does the business, and well.
