Gordon Ramsey could not give this hotel any tips in quickening the speed and attentiveness of service. This was no Kitchen Nightmare! Our meal was in fact relaxed and I could not fault any of the four servers who attended to us! We were not rushed but as soon as you asked for anything, as if by magic, it appeared...

Dear Charlotte K, My sincerest apologies about the noise in your bedroom. Unfortunately, at the weekends the nearby bar has live music which can be loud. As this is a town centre hotel, there is always activity late into the night. This is out of our control unfortunately. In relation to the way you were received at reception upon, all...

Very basic. Paint had obviously been applied to the doors and windows in our room which made them difficult to shut. The bathroom door didn't close properly at all. The hotel was old fashioned. The only vegetarian option of food in the bar was a tasteless pasta affair. At breakfast, which was very basic, they forgot to bring my tea...

Stayed over a weekend with family and would not stay again due to excessive loud music blaring for hours from a bar/nightclub. At one point I seriously considered driving the 3 hour journey home at midnight, only I had a 4 and 1 year old with me. This aside I must compliment the service,food and staff, all of which were...

Hotel is in a great location - right in the middle of the main high street of Port Laoise. I cannot say enough good things about the staff - they were very helpful, friendly, and accommodating. There is free parking on site which was a great bonus as well. We could not get our cable TV working in the room...
