  • 10.0.Exceptional

    I'd certainly stay at this hotel again. Their swiming pool and changing rooms are excellent! The staff are very friendly and competent. My room was extremely well cleaned with aparently new bed sheets, pillows and towels. For those who mind about decoration, the hotel may look a little old-fashioned and needing some renovation here and there, but in my opinion all the rest compensate this detail. I stayed there with my family during this pandemic restrictions time, and I could notice the hotel was well prepared to follw the cleaning recommendation and social distancing. We had to book time for the swiming, which in the end was good as there were not many people at the same time and we could enjoy the jacuzzi as well.

    Not bad

    Friendly welcome at reception. Helpful and with smiles. Room was large and comfortable. Shower wasnt great.....no water pressure. Bathroom needs updating but not bad!! Bar people friendly but one was very disrespectful towards another and made comments directly to us which made me uncomfortable. But otherwise service was good. Excellent breakfast! Waitress with short blonde hair is brilliant! Made everyone feel welcome and important.

    The importance of a good bed

    As most people who book into a hotel do so for an overnight stay, the comfort of the bed is of the utmost importance. This was not our experience when we stayed in the Horse and Jockey. We found the bed very uncomfortable, the duvet lumpy and the pillows of very poor quality, possibly pretty old. Every other facility was good. The swimming pool and spa treatment were excellent. We had a very good dinner and breakfast. Staff very pleasant and helpful.

    Nice Stay

    Had a really nice stay at this hotel,the only fault was the furniture is tired and needs a facelift and it would be perfect.We would go back to the Horse and Jockey.

    Lovely & relaxed with the bonus of a vegan meal

    It was a very nice hotel room, dinner was very nice also, I had a vegan curry which was very tasty. The shops in the hotel were lovely I would think especially for tourist as there was lots of Irish crafted and homemade goods, a little expensive (eg. I paid €6.50 for a small glass jar of peanut butter) it was lovely though!
