Stayed for one night here recently whilst attending a soccer match in nearby Deacy Park. There’s plenty of parking to the front of the hotel, and also some underground parking. The hotel is in a good location, and is on a very busy road. Check in was prompt, and it seemed like an age before we got to our room;...

The staff at the front desk and in Ryan's (attached restaurant) were absolutely brilliant! We were a part of a VERY large group who had reserved more than 50 rooms. We found the hotel to be quite comfortable with firm beds, plenty of pillows, new carpet in the bedrooms, wonderful water pressure, hot showers, etc. They were quick to meet...

Not our normal hotel level stay but traveling with teenagers. We had a two bedroom suite that was spacious and the breakfast was excellent. To the negative? Carpets in the suite were dated and seemed dirty. Pillows very uncomfortable but beds were okay. Location was fine for the most part. For a family with a budget I would say this...
