Reviewed 30 October 2006

Just back from 2 nights in Dooleys. The room we had was at the front of the hotel right above the entrance. As this is on the main road it was very noisy at night. The heat in the room at night was unbearable. There was no air conditioning or even a fan. That coupled with the very heavy duvet on the bed meant that we didn't get much sleep over the two nights. We could have opened the window but even with it closed it was very noisy so opening it would have made it even worse.
The room itself was actually very nice if a bit old fashioned. The shower was fantastic. Really powerful. But because there wasn't an extractor fan in the bathroom as soon as you get out of the shower you'd break out in a sweat from the heat.
The staff were very helpful and the service was excellent. Breakfast had all the usual and was very good. Had to get there early though otherwise you'd be waiting for a table for a while.
Overall didn't really enjoy the stay but that could have just been the room we had. A room not at the front of the hotel would have been much better.
