“Ideal hotel for touring the area”
Reviewed 4 June 2014

Just sent 5 nights at this excellent hotel. Th staff most friendly, the food was very good and as far as the evening meals were concerned the choice was good and good value for the money.
The rooms were spotless, beds were comfortable. The bars and lounges were pleasant places to sit. The car parking was good. And on the whole a very pleasant place to stay.

Room Tip: all the rooms seemed OK

Stayed here for a weekend with the girls a few weeks ago, am surprised it got 3 stars, it's dreadful.

Granted it was cheap-ish, but the quality of food at breakfast and again at the set dinner was just bad bad bad. Also the beds were dreadfully uncomfortable too and they had horrible old fashioned blankets on the beds.

Also, the noise all day & night long was unreal, at night the banging & shouting was so loud, and by day the cleaning staff were so loud banging up and down the corridors.

Won't be back.

Recently dined here and enjoyed a wholesome three course evening meal plus lunch served by very friendly, helpful and efficient staff. The overall atmosphere in the bar/ dining area was homely and welcoming and was filled with locals. The hotel is very clean and the service fast. The food was cooked fresh, good quality ingredients, well presented and good value. There was a wide and varied range of dishes to chose from on the menu. Not Michelin star food but resembles good wholesome home cooking. I would recommend this restaurant and its service. I did not stay in this hotel.

Honestly I did not expect much from this hotel from the website however we were all very pleasantly surprised.

We arrived late due to a major crash on the N7 but the hotel were very understanding and the Resturant still served us even though it was close to closing time.

The staff in the Resturant were extremely polite and friendly and didn't rush us one bit. The food was very tasty with generous portions.

The check in was quick and the girl was very friendly and genuine when recommending places to see and go in carlow.

We stayed in a deluxe room which are large, spotless clean and have a very modern bathroom. The bedrooms did get far too warm in the evening so we had to keep the window open. The bed was comfy but a tad small for a deluxe room.

The bar was clean, reasonably priced and the staff that served us were great craic and very obliging when we wanted to order food that wasn't on the menu, except for the air con being a little cold I would say its one of the best hotel bars I've been in.

I've read a review that said the decor of the hotel was dated which did put me off a bit but the decor is actually very nicely done and more classic than dated and very well maintained throughout. It was very cosy sitting in the reception area having a bite to eat.

The pool is lovely and clean and definitely worth a visit.

The only problem we had was the breakfast room service, the girl knocked and we shouted we'd just be a minute but she must not have heard us as by the time we answered the door she was gone so we had to phone down for it to be sent back up. This then also happened to our friends the next morning which I would say could be rectified and also avoid letting the food go cold by a quick phone call to the room to inform the guests the breakfast is on the way.

All in all it was a very pleasurable stay and we are already planning our next trip back.
