Midlands Park Hotel & Conference Centre (Formerly the Portlaoise Heritage Hotel)
Ranked #1 of 4 Hotels in Portlaoise
Reviewed 19 October 2012

I ran a conference for over 300 delegates here this week. The Hotel was fantastic, facilities and food were excellent and over the 2 days we did not encounter any problems. The Hotel has brilliant staff and customer service is always to the forefront. The Hotel is situated right in the middle of Portlaoise Town, only about 3 minutes drive from exit 17 off the M7 and is as a result easily acessible from all areas.

I would recommend the Portlaoise Heritage Hotel to anybody planning a meeting or conference.

Room Tip: The hotel is extremely quiet and peaceful and all rooms are excellent

We recently booked a business meeting including dinner and overnight stay for approximately 50 people at the Portlaoise Heritage Hotel. The hotel was a very good standard and perfect for our requirements. The highlight of our experience and the reason I would confidently recommend this hotel for business events is the level of customer service we received from all of the staff at the Portloaise Heritage Hotel. To Bruno and his excellent team thank you for attending to our many requests. In addition the standard of food served for dinner and the level of service was well above our expectations. Overall fantastic value for money without compromising on great service.

My husband and I had our wedding reception here in September 2011. From the first day of booking to the day after the wedding the staff couldn't have been nicer or do enough for us. Sandra in the bookings office was so pleasant and organised, and always had a smile. On the wedding day nothing was too much trouble for any of the staff, and the food, the room and the waiting staff were amazing. They really made the day go so smoothly and I can't praise them enough. We returned there for our anniversary this year and the service was just as excellent. The room was beautiful and they had a welcome note and chocolates in the room. We have stayed in the Heritage a few times now and have no hesitation recommending it. Mollys Bar is so much fun if you get there a night when trad music is on, and the italian restaurant serves amazing food. Parking is free over night and the hotel is in a fairly quiet part of town. I can't praise all the staff and this hotel enough, the best hotel experience I have ever had.

Room Tip: If you like bigger rooms then specify, as some of the double rooms can be small.

I stay away over 100 nights a year throughout Scotland and Ireland and I really appreciate a good hotel.... I have to say this is a GREAT Hotel.. First impressions are everything and the Heritage lived up to this.

With excellent facilites throughout the hotel and a huge choice of on site restaraunts(not forgeting a fabulous coffee shop) within the hotel you will find everything to make your stay special. a personal mention about the service is warranted- the staff are a class above at this establishment- well done to all the team at he hotel. A real GEM nestled close to Slieve Bloom mountains and excellent connections to main motorways, and only 2 hrs from Dublin- this hotel is a must stay .

Room Tip: the suites are huge for the money and are worth the premium- also speial early bird menu offers are...

We have just returned from a 3 night break at the Portlaoise Heritage Hotel. Having read some of the reviews before our stay, I was a little apprehensive about the hotel, however, our stay was extremely positive. The staff were more than friendly, the room was spotless and the food was delicious. The hotel is so central and for those who don't drive, the train station is only a 3 minute walk from the hotel. Portlaoise is a lovely, large town with 2 shopping centres and a lot of pubs. The Kildare Outlet is only 30 minutes drive away and there are many other attractions in the vicinity. I would highly recommend the Heritage and would visit again, there is also a fab leisure centre in the hotel which is a plus.

We ( 5 Adults + 2 Babies ) had lunch in the Fitzmaurice Restaurant on Sunday 23rd. May 2012 and were very pleased. One had Chicken wrapped in Bacon and the rest of us had Roast Beef. We received ample portions ( reasonably priced ) and speaking for myself, the Beef with a Red Wine Jus was delicious. We were served by a very friendly Chef and were seated by an equally friendly Lady called Monika. The Restaurant was quite busy, an indication of good standards. One minor little drawback is that you have to pay 1.50 euro per hour for the car-park. We had two cars and were charged 9 euro, having entered the third hour. I only say this, not to be negative but to advise prospective clients, that the longer you " tickle your taste-buds " the greater the charge. Residents, though get a discounted charge when they check-in. Enjoy, we did and will definitely return
