“Top Class for kiddies!”
Reviewed 28 May 2014

Stayed a night with 2 kids, best child-friendly hotel we've stayed in and very, very reasonable. Very friendly staff, spacious family room. Leisure centre was brilliant - warmest kiddie pool we've been in, best family changing room for small kids. Also multiple kiddie play area indoor and outdoor. Outdoor play area was fantastic! All in all, great experience. Thank you, Hillgrove.

Stayed at the Hillgrove as part of large group. The girl on reception ( pregnant girl) was so friendly and helpful, always chatty. I had single room which was nice with large bathroom. Very clean and only complaint is that the tv was old and small with a terrible picture. Breakfast was average. Dinner was very good considering such large group. The leisure facilities including the pool and outdoor hot tub are great with a superb changing room with digital lockers and swimwear drier. Staff very helpful and friendly and as we were Christian group not buying alcohol they did not seem to mind and were more than pleased yo simply sell you a coffee or cola. Other venues almost huff if not buying large amounts of drink. Quite a lot of work being done to improve the hotel. All very modern and trendy and probably appealing more to the females. Overall a decent 4 star hotel trying to keep guests happy.

After reading other reviews here you would nearly think that I'm nearly I'm talking about a different hotel here but I'm not
To start with food lovely if a little bit on the pricey side for bar food , decor lovely , spotless clean but with the exception other a you chap Colin ( I think ) at breakfast the staff are very very unhelpful
We had asked for a few small thing ie room service and a ice bucket but everything was an effort and very unhelpful
Even when we were the only people left in the bar they wouldn't let us turn up the volume on the TV
Even though there's is good points the unhelpful staff really let down our weekend .

Dear 370helly
Having read your recent review naturally we are very disappointed to read you found our staff very unhelpful as this is not the normal feedback we receive. You also mention that you found the bar food a little pricey, yet we have main courses on the menu from €11.95 which includes a choice of side dish. We have kept our prices competitive and had had very positive feedback. We will certainly take your comments on board.
Kind regards

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.
