stayed here on Deal Rush offer , what a surprise we got , friendly staff , excellent rooms , food very very good. On Sat night we were asked if we could dine at 7.30 as there was a birthday party in , staff were under pressure but still had time for a smile and kept us informed at all times what was happening. We were given complimentary coffee as desserts were going to be on the late side but we were served dessert before coffee arrived. Entertainment was excellent , music from 9pm until 3am , what more could one want for 99e?
Highly Recommended.

Took a 2 day break in this hotel on a pigsback voucher. This included 2 nights bed and breakfast plus one evening meal for 99euro for two people. Firstly the staff were very friendly and helpful. The room on the third floor was very dated, the toilet flusher was broken and you needed to manually push it back to stop it from continually running, the bathroom overall was not really clean at all. The bedroom had a really comfortable bed and the television had a few popular channels.
The dinner menu was very choice restricted and not well presented or tasty. The breakfast was grand and equal to most standard hotels.
As this only cost 99euro I feel bad complaining but even the second night the dinner we paid for was just about ok. I have taken quite a few of these short breaks from pigsback and in general found them to be great value, but not up to par this time.

Room Tip: Check if part of the hotel has been renovated and ask to stay there.

stayed here for my sisters wedding for 3 days, the management and staff were all very friendly and helpful. i was surprised at the size of the rooms, very spacious overlooking lovely scenery. very laid back hotel. the only negative we had was the food, it left alot to be desired, the breakfasts were badly organised, food was burnt or cold and it was like the dinners were re-heated. they really need to look into that. also the bar, took 20 minutes to get served and the drinks were pricey. the civil ceremony venue was beautiful, intimate and classy and the ball room was fantastic, the food was brought out quickly and the managers (john and natalie) were all hands on deck, overall it was a lovely experience.

Room Tip: ask for a room overlooking the water fountain.
