My wife and my 2 children loved this hotel. We have stayed in many Irish hotels around the country and found this amongst the best around. The rooms were clean and spacious, the restaurant was comfortable and the food excellent. Staff were amazing and the leisure centre great for the kids. Lovely time here and great value. You have made customers for life out of us. Thank you.

I've stayed here on business many times. As it's such a nice place I decided to book for my daughters birthday break. First class service and facilities. The man serving us in the restaurant on Friday night was first class. He made both the kids with us seem like stars. Thank you very much the hillgrove for a great family break.

Stayed here for 4 nights in mid-April as part of a Leger Holidays coach tour; the room was clean, comfortable and more than adequate. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful, in particular Mike on reception and the dining room staff... who went out of their way to make adjustments to the fixed menu to accommodate food allergies and to help my partner enjoy her landmark birthday during our stay.

Breakfast was buffet style cereals, toast and pastries etc with a full Irish Breakfast individually plated by the chefs with your choice of items from an extensive range...and as much as you wanted of each and then further heated under a grill, so piping hot when taken to the table.

It is a ten minute walk to the centre of Monaghan and a couple of minutes to the lovely cathedral. There is a large shopping mall plus many individual shops and restaurants.

Due to excursions, we didn't get to sample the leisure facilities, so cannot comment.The hotel is undergoing significant refurbishment, yet this had minimal impact on the everyday operation of the hotel.

Overall, an excellent stay and would have no hesitation in returning, although would probably avoid school holidays as the hotel is very child friendly.

We had a very enjoyable stay here, and it may have been the nicest rooms on our vacation. Rooms are large and the beds were very comfortable. Parking was abundant and free. We had a good time during our stay of one night.

We decided last minute on Sunday the 4th of May to go 2 The Hillgrove for our dinner and we were not disappointed. I rang the hotel and asked if we could eat in the restaurant instead of the bar so i was put through to the restaurant to book our table. We arrived and Martin quickly showed us to our table, the staff were amazing and so quick. We got our menu, ordered placed and first course served within 15 - 20 miins. All the staff were very polite, friendly and more than helpful. When I commented on how busy the hotel was they were happy to inform me that yes and the previous day they were the same with 2 weddings, 5 hen parties and x amount in for lunch/dinner through the day. As I happily sat eating my meal with my boyfriend, i commented that if i ever won the lotto i would like to buy The Hillgrove.

Definitely one of the best places I have eaten. The food is just to perfection and very reasonably priced, and not too long a wait time between courses. The staff are first rate and very friendly. Hotel is going through a renovation but you wouldnt know it and the change so far has exceeded expectations.
