Reviewed 7 October 2007

We stayed here for 3 nights whilst on tour. The rooms are pleasant and quite roomy. The food was OK. The furniture and carpets are cheap and scruffy. We felt quite trapped, as the hotel is a couple of miles from anywhere, on a busy main road, so you can't walk into town. We found the road noise quite wearing, but city dwellers might not notice it!
The bed linen was scratchy and synthetic, and the pillows are the sort you buy for a couple of pounds in the market - really uncomfortable.
Our biggest complaint is that in the guest rooms is a notice saying the tap water must be boiled before drinking! This is simply unacceptable when you are being charged 200 euros for a double room! Come on, Ireland isn't the third world!
