The Killeshin hotel is on the outskirts of Portlaoise in the Irish midlands. It is about a 15 minute walk to the town, past the prisons and hospitals en route. The hotel staff were very friendly and cheerful and had plenty of good advice. Rooms were spacious and comfortable and well kitted out. The food was great with dinner filling and well-presented and breakfast was buffet style with flavoursome bacon and sausages and again friendly service. The leisure centre looked great but we never tried it. Overall a fine hotel with a friendly service in a little visited area of Ireland. The welcome alone is worth the detour.

Hotel is a great base only hotel. There is a lesuire centre, but we were never told this on checking in.
The food is fantastic quality and good value but its lacking atmosphere. The same with the bar. A few fresh flowers, candles wouldn't go amiss.

Thank you for your comments. It is standard to mention the leisure centre on check in so this surprises me and I will be looking into to it. Fresh flowers and candles are items I purchase on a weekly basis for the hotel so again I am surprised at this comment. Thank you once again for taking the time to review your stay with us, we take all feedback seriously and will endeavour to make changes where necessary.

Yours sincerely,

John Flannery

I spent two full days on a work-related course in the function room. We stayed one night, and had breakfast lunch and dinner at the hotel. There were 70 people in total in our group and all agreed that the hotel was impressive. The room was spotless and it looked newly renovated from start to finish. It was bright and airy and spacious. There was a TV and all the usual conveniences in the room.
Breakfast was buffet style and everything was freshly cooked and nicely presented. There was a nice selection and there was plenty of everything. Tea and coffee were fresh and came promptly with fresh toast.
Lunch on both days consisted of a main course - we had a choice of two. I had chicken served with a mushroom sauce on the first day and beef on the second day served with a lovely tasty gravy. They were hot and tasty both days and the waiting staff were very efficient.
Dinner was delicious and the waiter was pleasant and efficient. He responded quickly and with a smile to requests for other items. We were never left waiting and enjoyed the meal very much.
I'd have no hesitation to recommend this hotel for a business stay or a nice short break.

Room Tip: I had room 221 and it overlooked the main Dublin road which was fairly busy and a bit noisy.
