Enjoyed my stay. Good location on the River Illen which my room looked out on. Unfortunately the weather was particularly bad but it made the river look even more dramatic. Found the staff friendly and helpful (the blonde girl in reception with the bob is really nice and really friendly). My first room was small but clean and comfortable but I was upgraded to a larger room as the WiFi in my room was unavailable.
The early bird menu was good value and the food was delicious. I had my breakfast served in my room as the cost was only €2.50 extra which is fantastic value. I had Eggs Benedict which is rarely seen on hotel menus these days and it was beautifully cooked.
Would go back if WiFi situation improves.
