I've stayed in this hotel on many occasions while working in the locality. It is the only hotel in the town of Cootehill and as such could become complacent with its monopoly. However nothing could be further from the truth. Every time I stay there I see improvements in the hotel. This week they were building a beautiful new hardwood clad entrance to the hotel grounds. It looks very refined and elegant.
The hotel itself is small but perfectly proportioned. The reception area is large and inviting and the staff are very helpful. My room was in the front of the hotel with a private balcony and views over the countryside. The room is large and had a double and single bed. I require two things from a hotel room - cleanliness and a comfortable bed. At the Errigal Country House I got both. I hate flat thin pillows but I didn't have to worry - I had a total of 7 pillows in the room - all offering good head and neck support. The bathroom was spotless and stocked with plenty of toiletries.
The breakfast was included - it was a good Irish cooked breakfast ordered from an extensive menu. For only €65 per night including the breakfast you would be hard pressed to find a better deal. And as I said, it is the only hotel in the area so they could have charged more or skimped on the service - but neither happened.
A few things I might like to change - the wi-fi wasn't working on one of the nights I stayed. This was a minor inconvenience as I was working each evening in my room. The receptionist did offer to allow me to use the PC in the office to check emails though. Another thing - when I was checking out there was nobody on reception. I waited around for 10 minutes but nobody showed. Thankfully I had pre-authorised the full payment on my credit card so I did not wait around. I would suggest that maybe if the reception is left unattended there should be a bell or a phone in place to call for assistance.
The two items I mentioned above are minor and did not impact on my stay or would not dissuade me from staying again. I would strongly recommend this hotel for the business or leisure traveller. I already know where I will be staying next time I am back in Cootehill.
