“Highly recommend!”
Reviewed 25 August 2014

I stayed in the bridge house hotel last Friday night as part of a trip away with some friends. There were 4 of us and stayed in what was called a family room but really it was far more like a suite. The beds were shared between two different rooms with a lovely couch and dressing area between the rooms. Overall there was a very luxurious feel to the room. Staff at reception couldn't have been more helpful with assisting us with arranging our stay! We opted for the bar food which was very tasty and reasonably priced. We'd originally planned to go out in the town for drinks but the band that were playing in the bar were so good that we stayed put. I hear that there is a night club but we didn't make it that far. Thankfully we couldn't hear it either:-) I was so impressed that I have booked a return visit with my husband in September which is something that I wouldn't normally do. Would be difficult to fault this hotel, would definitely recommend!

Just back from a great stay in this hotel. We had a huge room. The staff were extremely helpful and there was a great atmosphere in the hotel. Food was great too. Outdoor jacuzzi was fab! Would recommend this hotel to others looking for a central location.

I was looking for a stop over travelling from the mid west coast to Dublin and decided a trip to the Tullamore distillery was a perfect excuse to look in this region. The Bridge House Hotel looked ideal as it is within a few minutes walk and the hotel web site made it look rather grand (impressive staircase, a choice of restaurants, spa etc). I booked directly with the hotel and had mentioned certain room preferences which Geraldine (reservations) confirmed could be arranged. Nothing extraordinary, simply a family room with a double and a single full size bed.
The price given seemed reasonable and I was offered a Dinner B&B basis in their "Italian" restaurant for a little extra which I accepted. Geraldine's manner and helpfullness certainly set the stage for us looking forward to our stay.

On arrival the reception area is large, welcoming and sets a good first impression. At check in we were allocated our room swiftly and went up. However we discovered the room only had a double bed in it and so went down to reception who confirmed they would get a roll away bed put in. Pointing out I had specifically made a reservation avoiding this, the reception and guest services team spent the next ten minutes coming up with two different solutions even though they had no family rooms left. One of which I was very happy with and was offered a complementary bottle of wine for the inconvenience. For me the true measure of hospitality is how they respond to challenges.... Here at the BHH they were calm and professional, trying to minimise the disruption and anxiety to the me the guest.
I did not get the names but the lady on reception and the gentlemen who brought the bed up seemed empowered to resolve the situation swiftly and with such reassuring aplomb (to the general manger - they were on duty at noon when I checked in 12th August). The room we had was lovely (it seemed like a superior room / junior suite due to its size) which was able to accommodate the extra bed easily. The decor, furnishings and bedding were all excellent quality which meant a very good nights sleep :)

The leisure club was well appointed (the "wet" aspects which we used). The main pool felt large enough to cope with all the people that were doing the same as us. The sauna, steam room and jacuzzi were all working and clean. They also have an outside "hydra therapy pool" (which was lovely and hot). This consisted of a large water fall to stand under and seating around the edge which had jacuzzi style jets. If you have a swimming cap, take it - they insist you wear one in either of the pools. This was a new concept to me having never heard of it before. You can buy them there at €3 each.

The evening meal in the Italian restaurant was good, nothing mind blowing. The choice was an allowance towards their a la carte menu, else their dinner inclusive menu (which still had a choice, all be in restricted). Service attentive and the drink / wine prices reasonable.
The morning breakfast was similar; good, but not memorable. It was nice to see eggs benedict on the menu which is not often offered in my experience.
Had the food been more memorable I would have easily rated the BHH 5 stars "exceptional".

I would be delighted to stay here again because we had a very good nights sleep and all the staff we interacted with were exceptional.

The staff were lovely and very helpful. We got a last minute deal €99 euro for bed and breakfast. The breakfast was good, just like any other hotel there was a choice of fresh fruit, cereals, fruit juices, tea, coffee and a hot breakfast.

The bed was uncomfortable, it was quite hard, it was like lying on a wooden board or something equally as uncomfortable.

Our key cards didn't work, when we arrived the manager had to use his master key to let us into our room, and on the day we were due to check out we got new key cards which worked, this obviously wasn't ideal because as we were checking out the new key cards weren't going to be much use as we were checking out.

Our window didn't close properly, anytime we pushed it up to close it, it slipped back down so it was opened slightly at the top and there were a lot of people outside the hotel so it was quite noisy and we were woken several times because of this.

There was also no toilet paper in the bathroom, the next morning we had to ask at reception for some. Our shower didn't work properly, when we turned it to warm, the water was hot.

Overall for €99 euros we expected the hotel to be better, especially for a 4* hotel.

Would we stay here again? Not if we had any other choice.
