We live locally but decided to stay overnight after St Pat's Day. Service was fantastic at the Motel and the Hotel. Plenty of friendly staff, great food and a good time was had by all. Nice continental breakfast thrown in for us was just right.

Thanks for the review and feedback Lenny! We did have an issue with our hot water on the first night of your stay, which was rectified the next day. However the problem resurfaced the next night, and whilst one guest complained that they didn't have hot water, our Receptionist queried other guests only to be told, yes their hot water was fine. Turns out there was an issue with the circulator that feeds through to the rooms. Please accept our apologies for this, and hopefully your next stay with us will be more enjoyable.
