We stayed in this hotel on October 20th and it was a nightmare experience! We booked our room around two months in advance. We were getting in after midnight so we called the hotel a few weeks in advance to make sure checking in at that time wouldn't be a problem. We were assured that someone would be there. After a late flight from London to Shannon we made the hour long drive and walked in to a nice looking reception area that was dark with no one manning the desk. After searching for 20 minutes Mark finally showed up and checked us in. We walked to room 107, opened the door and were almost knocked over by the smell of smoke from our non smoking room. It was horrible. I am allergic to the smell of smoke and my husband has asthma so it was not going to work. The carpets were not vaccines and had disgusting stains on them as well. There were also stains on the walls and drapes. We went and searched for Mark again and after 15 minutes we finally located him. Mark told us there were no other rooms available. I asked him to call their sister hotel to see if rooms were available which he did but a 30 minute drive at 1:00 am was not possible for us so we stayed in our little hell hole of a room. I got almost no sleep due to the awful smell of smoke and the bed was horribly hard and uncomfortable. We got up early to avoid any more time in that awful room. I chose this hotel after researching on trip advisor. Maybe other rooms are better, but ours was like a bad motel 6 and a horrible disappointment. I felt disgusting staying there. I am writing this review to save others from a similar experience. Warning... Stay elsewhere!!!
