Recently stayed for one night mid-week in the Newpark and was not blown away by the hotel at all. We were placed in a room that was ages away from the hotel's reception, in what seemed like the old part of the hotel. The room was nice however, big bed but the phone was broke in the room, which really is something that they should have fixed a long time ago.
The biggest problem we had was that we could hear the bathroom that was situated directly above our bedroom, so when the shower was running it was like we were staying in their bathroom it was so loud.
Location wise it's ok, lots of parking outside however you wouldn't really walk it to the town at night, so a taxi is needed, costing about 8 - 10 euro but it would be a pleasant stroll in the day time
There was supposed to be free internet in every room, but we were so far from reception that the signal was not strong enough so we had barel a phone signal.
Overall it was a nice hotel, really nice staff on the check-in counter, who suggested a lovely restaurant in town for us to eat in, however I got the feeling that the less than average rooms were being kept for the Irish guests, while the nicer, more modern rooms were given to overseas visitors
