Excellent hotel in a central location. Convenient to all the main bars and restaurants. Free parking for guests in a secure carpark which is secured at night. Lovely staff, rooms clean and tidy. Wifi was a bit ropey when we were there I couldn't connect which was a bit of an inconvenience.

Receptionist was very friendly and helpful on arrival, Her name is Lisa, The hotel was bright and clean, very good compared to our experience in the Abbey Hotel in Donegal. Room was lovely and clean and the cooked breakfast was hot with a good variety.
