We have stayed in this hotel numerous times before and always loved it but I have never gotten around to writing a review. When en route to cork with a howling baby last Friday evening we just pulled in off the motorway to check if they could accommodate us for the night. The owner pulled into the car park at the same time as us and he held the door open for us and had a chat. Immediately we bumped into a couple who we recognised from a previous stay (always nice to see repeat customers!). The receptionist was very friendly- she remembered us from our last stay and immediately booked us into a lovely family room. All of the staff that we met in the bar that evening and in the restaurant the next morning were very efficient and friendly and nothing was too much of an ask for them. The leisure centre is very well equipped and the swimming pool is gorgeous. The only thing that I would point out if that there isn't much space to get through the couches and armchairs between the reception area and the giftshop/restaurant area with a buggy (or wheel chair) but apart from that I cannot fault this hotel in any way and I would 100% recommend it to anyone.
