We decided to stay here for one night as we had stayed with friends in Tipperary the previous night and fancied making a weekend of it as a birthday treat for my partner. Having eventually gotten into the secure parking behind the hotel, we checked in. Friendly enough service at reception. We went up to the room which was very basic and the first thing I noticed was how untidily the beds were made. Linen was very creased, sheets and covers not tucked in properly and the valance sheet on the single bed was all caught up. Room obviously made in a hurry with no quality control. When a room is THAT basic, the least you can do is make sure it looks tidy. I have stayed in budget hotels of higher quality. Entertainment in the bar that night was questionable - chancer with a laptop sitting on a keyboard singing to dodgy backing tracks. Thankfully we only went in for a night cap following a fabulous night out. Went for breakfast the next morning. Service was slow and when we arrived waitress said "help yourself to cereal etc and we will serve you the hot food". This to me meant table service - so we waited. And we waited. Eventually another girl came to ask if we wanted tea/coffee and I asked her about the hot food. She said we had to queue and would be served at the buffet. I put it down to a language confusion but I was a little annoyed. The food was delicious however, couldn't be faulted. There was nothing great about this hotel that made me forget the little things unfortunately and it was disappointing as it was a birthday treat.
