“Very Clean with good staff”
Reviewed 12 April 2014

First time in this hotel, was impressed and will visit again. Reception was very friendly and comfortable as was the staff. Room was spacious and spotless, we were overlooking the main road and could'nt hear a thing. Restaurant was clean and food was very tasty. Bar was comfortable but a little dated - for a 4star it could do with an overhaul but overall a good value hotel right in the centre of town. Only down side is you have to pay for parking

I stayed for 1 night recently. On first impression I felt the overall appearance was very tired and a shabby appearance. The bedroom was grubby, I went for a swim in the pool and there was green moss / mould on the edge of the pool, the place is dull and there are various unpleasant smells around the hotel. The meeting room I attended was set-up with leather chairs, the majority of which has torn armrests. When we asked for replacements, we got filthy chairs, with ingrained dirt and food. The socked boxes built into the floors were filthy dirty and the socket on the wall was falling off. I ate lunch in the carvery before I left, the tea cups were dirty and also the milk jugs had not been cleaned for a good while with dried milk on the insides. I will not be returning and neither will my company.

Thank you for posting your review on Tripadvisor. I am very disappointed to read your comments, nonetheless they are very much appreciated as all comments are constructive and help us improve our service moving forward.
We are currently in the process of refurbishing many areas of the hotel which involves repainting and updating of equipment.
I have spoken with our Leisure Centre Manager concerning your issues regarding the pool area and this has been addressed immediately.
I am truly sorry you found us lacking on this occasion. We do not take it lightly the loss of custom

We are just back from a brilliant stay in this hotel. We stayed here with our two kids (1 & 5). We were greeted by the lady at reception with a big smile and she was very friendly. Our room was spacious, clean and the beds were comfy. We had food in the bar and it was lovely. Breakfast in the restaurant was excellent. The staff in the hotel and leisure centre were all so friendly. The leisure centre was brilliant and the kids had a ball. The only problem with our whole stay here was a very small one but it was abit annoying was the key cards never really worked properly, we had to keep going back to reception to get the key card reissued. On a whole though myself, husband and two kids had a brilliant weekend, feeling very relaxed and refreshed now. Would highly recommend

Both my wife margaret and I stayed at the Heritage Hotel, Portlaoise on 28th & 29th March and we thoroughly had a brilliant mini-break. The staff are very friendly , the food in the Restaurant was very well cooked, well presented and the service was first class. The drink in the bar was very reasonable, the barman was very efficient and friendly. The breakfast is excellent, the room is very spacious, very clean and the bed was comfortable.
The Duty Manager Mr Aidan Moore(no relation) was extremely helpful, nothing was a problem, and he was always in good humour. The Receptionist was extremely helpful and both of them went to great lengths to get tickets for us for the Keith Barry Show which we both enjoyed.
I would recommend a stay in The Heritage Hotel for anyone looking to recharge their batteries
or just chill out.
we did not use the Leisure Center or the Spa this time but we will go back again.
The Security to the bedroom area is also first class, you can't access the lift without your room card.

Room Tip: Look for a non-smoking and a quiet location.
