Fantastic hotel.
A wonderful, stately, grand hotel. Probably the best hotel outside of Dublin. Well trained staff was friendly, courteous and efficient. Located close to everything. Just a fantastic experience.

6/10 Good

After the initial mix up with the room, and a prompt for a cup of tea while we waited for them to ready a ready. The room was adequate, twin beds pushed together - obvious by their fixed to wall headboards. The pool was overrun with children, jumping in and throwing a mini rugby ball at pace across the pool. Fireworks for a wedding that night were and added bonus and the hotel had thought ahead to pre-warn and invite viewing. Not a 4 star hotel but adequate.

The hotel is beautiful! All of the front desk staff and most of the restaurant staff are service oriented. The bellman directed to us to a ramp so we could bring our own suitcases up. Once inside, the hotel had bellman take our luggage to the room, once it was ready. It's easy walking distance to town, even for an older person like myself. It's refreshing to have a large parking lot in which to park adjacent to the hotel. The breakfast was very nice, but I would have liked an omelet option. Dinner was delicious. Overall, we were vey happy to have stayed there in such a beautiful hotel.
