I came here with my partner for a night in the suite firstly the price was amazingly good value. From the start through the booking process the reception staff were so helpful and pleasant and nothing was to much trouble. We had champagne on arrival which was lovely and the dinner we had in the bar has to be the best steak I have ever had. Our room was perfect in every way. The bar staff were cheerful and the drinks were a very reasonable price. To round of the most perfect stay we got in room breakfast of which I have never seen the likes of. It was presented beautifully and just topped of a lovely stay. I have never had such a nice time at a hotel and I can't rave about it enough to friends and family. There was not one single thing I could find wrong I only regret not booking a longer stay. Me and my partner will definitely be back for longer next time. I had read all the great reviews before we came so I was expecting it to be enjoyable but the hillgrove really out done itself as it was so much better than I could have imagined.5stars for everything. Thank you :)

Food was lovely, everything was spot on, it was a large wedding and the quality and standard of the food I was very impressed it, it was done as silver service and the servers were very good. Quick and efficient and able to deal with any requests we had without any issues. I must also point out that the hotel was also dealing with another wedding, a funeral meal and also communion. Unfortunately we were unable to stay over as the entire hotel was booked out that night but from the reports of friends and family the rooms were very spacious, clean and tidy and nobody had any complaints, I look forward to a return visit!

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.
