We had an enjoyable 2 night break in this hotel. It is quite central and within walking distance of restaurants, shopping, pubs etc. Our room looked out onto the river and we also had a view of the Castle. You can go for a walk in the castle grounds or along by the river, both equally pleasant. The bedrooms have comfortable beds and are spacious and clean, although you can get noise (doors, talk) through from nearby rooms. Staff are very welcoming and friendly. Food is generally excellent, although we were disappointed with a steak that was ordered. Other items on the menu were excellent. Breakfast was fairly typical of such a hotel. One morning when the diningroom was quite full, service was slow. Parking costs extra but it is a central location. The leisure centre is modern and pleasant; we visited it twice and enjoyed it. Golf in Gowran nearby was good quality and very reasonably priced at €15.
