Myself and my wife are just back from a lovely weekend in Midleton. We got a Groupon deal for 2 nights B&B for 2 people at €95. As we were paying so little, I expected a small room, or one that was noisy, or hard to get there. Our room was huge. Really big. We were close to the leisure centre and far away from the bar and function room, so we were assured a good night sleep.
The only real downside is that the room was a little tired looking - the carpet was a bit worn, and the décor wasn't up to much, but this is a small complaint, and considering the cost it was no big deal'
The bed was firm (to my liking) and everything was perfectly clean. The shower had ample pressure and plenty of hot water. Free wifi too!
The leisure centre was just beside our room. I'd suggest using it early morning or after 7PM as it's full of children at other times. Post 7PM we practically had the place to ourselves and had a very peaceful swim. Unfortunately, the steam room was out of order, but the sauna, Jacuzzi and outdoor hot tub were fine.
Breakfast was excellent. It was the usual Irish hotel buffet, but everything was pretty fresh, even though we turned up at 10:30 on Saturday morning, just at the end of service. Eggs were cooked to order, which was a nice touch, and freshly cooked pancakes, waffles and French toast were also available. On Saturday I ate so much I skipped lunch as I was full until Dinner at 9:30 PM.
Special mention to the staff. There really was the Ceád Mile Failte that I haven't seen in an Irish hotel in years. Everyone from the young people running the leisure centre, to the ladies serving breakfast were friendly, chatty and welcoming. Midleton is such a lovely town too - I'll be back soon I'm sure.
