Just back from girlfriend's hen weekend (6 of us in total) and cannot rate this hotel highly enough! It is a quirky boutique style hotel.
From the moment we checked in the staff were really friendly and helpful (special mention to Martin in restaurant on Saturday night - absolute gentleman!) Rooms spacious and clean - meal in restaurant was first class - waiting staff were really pleasant. Loved the outdoor spa. Thank you for making it such a lovely weekend and will definitely return!

I would just like to thank Kimberly and all the staff of the Hillgrove who looked after us so well on our wedding day in July 2014.From the moment we entered the hotel on our wedding day until we left we were provided with the highest standard of service.All our guests thoroughly enjoyed the wedding meal and complimented how quick the service was.I would highly recommend the Hillgrove for a wedding venue.At no time throughout planning our wedding was anything a hassle Thank you for making our day so special.

Thank you so much for helping us have the best day of our lives. The Hillgrove hotel was without a bout on top from for wedding. From the minute we arrive to book our wedding right to the minute we arrive on our big day. Nothing was a hassle for Kimberly and her army of staff on the day. From we book our wedding my own mother took sick and as a result she is now in a wheelchair. This as a bride was a heartbrakeing then what will we do for mum on the day. For the Hillgrove hotel they couldn't be more helpful. They went to every lengths to help us sure that my mum was well look after in every detail. We couldn't be more happier with picking the Hillgrove hotel for our wedding. For our wedding it deffantly was magical day in a magical hotel. To all the staff a big thank you for all ur help on our day as with your help this not could be possible.
For all newly engaged couples you will not be disappointed with anything for you wedding at the Hillgrove hotel.

Hotel is top class. Staff are polite and helpful. Leisure centre is one of the best I've been in. My kids loved the pool. Couldn't keep them out of it. There's a kids club on school holidays in the morning and evening which we availed of on a couple of evenings. Bar food is lovely and the service is fast with great waiting staff. Hotel is very family friendly which we loved. No doubt we will return again.

This hotel is a gem right on the the border. From the highly relaxing leisure club, spa treatments optional, to the fun fun fun of the kids club they truly do cater for all of your needs.

We relaxed from the moment we stepped into the hotel, which is within a comfortable stroll from Monaghan town centre, to the minute we checked out. Kids have enjoyed themselves and parents actually feeling like we've had a break!!

Highly recommended!!

Although I have eaten in this Hotel many times before, I feel I must impart my latest experience to you.
The occasion was a family meal with my wife and daughter as it was her birthday. We had starters which included 2 philo prawns and my usual garlic mushrooms, We all had steak which was cooked to perfection and desert and a few drinks during dining. Appart from the fact that the meal was excellent the thing that made it special and very personal was the fact that the owner "Colm Ahern" stopped to have a chat and made us feel very welcome and thank you for the free tipple. You don't often get this in places. Altogether an enjoyable evening, good value for money, very friendly staff and atmosphere.
Well Done
