    Refused entry.

    Two of our engineers travelled from the UK, drove from Dublin to the hotel, which we have used many times. They were simply refused entry, wouldn't allow them to check-in, wouldn't even allow them to use a toilet.

  • 6.0.Good

    Great staff

    Amazing staff, they take really care of you. The room was ok, the bed a bit uncomfortable. The downer was the food, not good at all. The breakfast was bad as well, no good quality.

  • 8.0.Very good

    Very high level of cleanliness, a lot of hand sanitizer available to use. Room was very clean on arrival. Breakfast was good, all docially distanced. Booked dinner for the 2nd night of our stay but this was not booked by reception. No pizza available that evening which was v disappointing. We hoped to go to the pool on our second day but did not know it shouldve been prebooked so our family was unimpressed to miss out. Overall its a good hotel in an accessible location.
