They also kindly inform all guests at night what time kids must leave the bar area which I thought was a very...

The lovely, friendly, "seated," non-expressive, and yawning, receptionist personified this hotel. Then there was the Absolute worst hotel/B&B bed ever! Pleasant, untrained restaurant staff worked hard, food was good. This is a 3 star airport hotel without the airport. Never again. Full stop!

Can't recommend this hotel enough. Staff are amazing, couldn't do enough for us. Food was super, and menu was different on both nights. Room was spacious, only down fall was breakfast, not great, can be noisy. Great value for money, would highly recommend this hotel to any family. Very family oriented. Will go again.

Stayed here for a night in September. It's a lovely modern hotel on the outskirts of the town. Very comfortable with great facilities!

Loved this hotel, excellent amenities, high quality rooms and decor, great food and service all at a very reasonable price. Located just outside Carlow, with countryside to be viewed as you're eating your well cooked buffet breakfast.

Excellent helpful staff but over priced. The breakfast was really disappointing, the food ran out and when several guests asked for it to be replenished where informed that there was no chef cooking at present even though it was half way through the breakfast serving time!

stayed here for 1 night on the way from Rosslare to Donegal. Disappointing for the price, basically £140 for 2 people for one night. No extras, breakfast ok just. Seemed to cater for business travellers whose company's foot the bill. Poor value for money but clean and convenient.
