We stayed here for a night as part of our honeymoon. A beautiful hotel in a practical location. It is true the roadside location makes it a little noisy - but it didn't disrupt us. We had a nice meal in the bar as part of our package. Staff were very friendly and personalised welcome message was lovely.

Went with my girlfriend for one night for her birthday, we'd been before and were blown away by the rooms, the food, ambiance, everything... but this time it was even better!
The staff are lovely and so helpful, reception couldn't do enough for us. They even had 2 little cakes with happy birthday and my girlfriends name written on plate in chocolate, BEAT THAT!

We got 1 night with breakfast and dinner deal.... Dinner was gorgeous, and breakfast possibly even better.

The rooms are so much better than any other hotel. They have a very reasonably priced mini bar, a mini coffee machine with actual coffee, not just freeze dried instant crap.
Also dressing gowns and slippers. And beautiful(and expensive) shampoo, shower gel etc.

Just fantastic, we left so relaxed. Can't wait to go back, Thank you to everyone at the twelve for a wonderful stay.

I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THE TWELVE TO EVERYONE!!

Just back from 2 nights at The Twelve. Very nice hotel and great staff but I was surprise to find that the hotel is on the main street of Barna - at a cross roads actually, it is a very busy roa and very noisy at night. We were in a suite on the 2nd floor and the windows are not suitable for a busy road outside. Also on or first morning we were woken by the drink delivery truck hauling in and out barrels of beer at 8am, I was not very happy over that. The staff were incredible and very helpful and the food was great, both in the bar and upstairs in the restaurant. I was a little surprised at the amount of kids there as I had considered it a 'couples' kind of hotel from their website. Don't know if there was so many kids as it was Easter holidays but it was a bit annoying that every time we went downstairs the seats and couches in the bar were all taken up by kids lying around. Overall a lovely hotel, I would stay there again but would not book it as a romantic getaway, as I had hoed this time.

Room Tip: Away from the main road or the side road and not near the delivery entrance.

We did not stay at the hotel, but ate at the restaurant, I think called the Pin. The food was excellent! Italian pizza was some of the best I've had outside of Italy. The chef made a special pasta dish for my vegetarian daughter. Staff very friendly and generous with advice. We had a fun evening!
