We did stay there for one night only, as there was no other hotels available. Well needs some renovations definitely, rooms are outdated and cheap looking. Lift was working up to first floor only (we were staying on the second), bedside lamp had stains (see the photo), bathroom like from the eighties. However for one night is just ok. Bed... More

Firstly the staff were very polite and accommodating of my late check in, but that's where the good bits end. There were a number of small issues which i would have overlooked if the water in the shower had been hot in the morning - but it was STONE COLD - totally unacceptable, especially as i was going for surgery...

I stayed here for a night with my friend and will never darken the door again. There was no parking so had to keep putting tickets on the car in SuperValu carpark.

I recently stayed at this 'hotel'. Although it was very basic it was clean. We handed in the key as usual when departing. However, we were later charged e10 because they misplaced the key. I have since rang 5 times to sort this out but to no avail. BEWARE of their hidden costs aka robbery.

Stayed here when I was going out for the night in mullingar. The receptionist/ barman was polite and friendly. Room was basic, but clean and comfortable. Breakfast was very nice. No rush on check out. Overall it was excellent for price and location would definitely return.

Let's get something straight right away, this a 3 star hotel and it's good at being a 3 star hotel. People who book here, pay €58 for a double room including breakfast and then review the premises as if it's meant to be the epitome of luxury living are missing the point. It's not The Plaza and it doesn't pretend... More
