Breakfast was nice and service was friendly in the restaurant.
Hotel looks quite nice from outside as well as the bar and restaurant.
Location is good in the centre of Claremorris.
The room I stayed in is very old and worn, smells very 'fusty' and is in urgent need of a revamp. The carpets were filthy. The bathroom is tiny with the sink next to the bed. It is very noisy on the corner of a busy junction, made worse by the window needing to be open due to the smell and stuffy room. I don't think it's a great sign when there is an electric heater and de-humidifier in a hotel room
Upon checking out I paid with a credit card and requested to be charged in Euros as my provider does not charge a foreign transaction fee. A sterling amount then came up on the machine and when I said that I wanted it changed to Euros I was told it would definitely be charged in Euros and my card provider would carry out the conversion. On getting home and checking my credit card bill I was as charged in sterling at the hotel merchant’s rate. This cost me approximately €5 based on the rate I was getting on transactions the same day. Not a huge amount but very annoying considering I specifically requested to be charged Euros. People with non-euro credit cards should be aware of this.
Overall while the room was cheaper than some other hotels it is not good value considering the poor state of the hotel and I am convinced that there are a lot of fake reviews as a lot of the positive reviews I have read are misleading.
I feel this is a fair and honest review of the hotel and think it would be hard for any genuine guest to disagree with what I have wrote.
