“As good as we expected”
Reviewed 9 October 2010

Another positive review to add to the many previous ones of this hotel.Easy to find in a great location just a few minutes walk from the town centre & with a large free car park making parking the car up problem free.Check in was quick & ultra efficient.Our room was great.Big,clean & comfortable with a double & a single bed,it had everything needed with a large wardrobe,tv,safe,iron,ironing board,trouser press,full length mirror,small table & several chairs,hairdryer,tea/coffee making facilities.The bathroom wasn't huge but was more than adequate with a bath/shower & plenty of towels.There was a large wedding reception taking place in the hotel during our stay but we heard absolutely no noise from it in our room.
Breakfast was excellent with a great selection available including bacon,sausages,eggs etc,cereals,cheeses,yoghurts,breads,juices,tea & coffee.The residents bar was comfortable with quick service & the lobby was big & roomy with plenty of seating to sit & chill.Like all the staff we encountered,the reception staff were friendly,helpful & efficient.
This hotel is a genuine 4 star & puts to shame many of the so called 4 stars we have encountered on the continent with it's staff & facilities etc.I would have no hesitation in staying there again if we returned to Carlow.

I stayed at Seven Oaks hotel with our youth string orchestra on a trip to our twin town Carlow. You realise very quickly that this is first class hotel. Reception, saloon, entrance area everything is arranged in an luxurious old-style. Staff is really kind, helpful and flexible, you just have to ask what you want.
Rooms are quite spacious and very clean. The main inconvenience were english sockets and no adapters for european plug.
Food is very tasty, especially the irish breakfast with numerous traditional dishes. There is also an irish pub where sometimes you can listen to irish folk music players. Really fantastic!
The hotel has very nice and quiet location near the town centre, has it's own swimming pool, fitness centre, free wi-fi, rent-a-bike, and more.

The Hotel has good location in the city according to the center and very plaesant and comfortable rooms.
The Hotel has good clean facilities and warm, real staff that treat you like a person and not just another occupant in the big hotel.

stayed five days four nights in Carlow at Seven Oaks Hotel. The hotel is first class. Great rooms, large and clean. food excellent [only complaint meals too large] and plenty of choice. The staff were fantastic, friendly, with the irish sence of humour and nothing was too much trouble for the. enjoyed days out in Carlow, Avoca [BallyK] Dublin, Kilkenny and many smaller places. Everything brilliant.

My fiance and I travelled with Diamond Coach Holidays from Swansea..
Our coach party was met by the Duty Manager upon Arrival and Departure.
Our bedroom was spacious, clean, and comfortable,
The quality of the food was excellent, and the staff went out of their way to ensure that my fiance (who is a picky vegetarian) was accommodated.
We also made use of the free leisure facilities, the swimming pool, sauna, steam room, etc were brilliant to unwind in at the end of each day's excursion, the pool in particular because it is 1.2 metres deep throughout, and my fiance found this a blessing.
There was a good mix of people using the hotel, including an Irish Hurling Team.
I am 57 and my fiance is 53.
