We stayed here beginning of December for 3 nights. The rooms were very spacious, bathroom looked a little tired and in need of a refresh. Hotel staff were extremely friendly and helpful and a good craic. We only had breakfast here but we was not disappointed. I recommend the omelette or pancakes. Will definitely be coming back to this hotel

Stayed here in November for one night. Close to family down in Cork, so a very convenient location for us. We had two rooms booked and both were large and spacious with good lighting at the mirror which is hard to get in a hotel. We had dinner the night we arrived and the food was gorgeous. The roast of...

I stayed here for a single night. I was a late check-in and I phoned ahead to ask if any food would be available when I arrived. I was advised that food finishes at 8:30 PM. This is to my mind not acceptable for a hotel. I asked if a sandwich could be set aside for me and was told...

A vast improvement in the quality of the breakfast would need to occur before we would stay again, disappointed being offered a cold fry each morning it's not as if the service was quick, very slow as if it was being cooked fresh it definitely wasn't

Stayed here for 3 nights last weekend. Quite cheap but not too cheerful. The bedrooms are clean (ledge above bed very dusty) but in need of a good overhaul. The hairdryer and telephone have been yhere since Jesus was a baby. The bathroom was very rough around the edges, previous upgrade work wasn't finished off well. No ventilation in the...

The staff were very friendly here. The place itself is massive and very spacious. The room was big and spacious and somewhat clean. The bed was comfortable as well. There is also a restaurant where you can eat any time of the day which is very good. There is lots of choice as well. I ordered the pork chops and...

Nothing planned just dropped in on impulse as I was passing through the city. I find the location the staff and quality very good.

Many thanks for taking the time to review us. It is unfortunate that you were not able to join us on either the Saturday or Sunday nights of the Bank holiday Weekend to enjoy the live music that we had. Regarding investment in the property we are currently dealing with Cameron Wallace Architects with a view to refurbishing the bar...
