Loved this hotel! Fantastic location, right in the heart of the town, within walking distance to pretty much everything! My room was clean and looked new. Staff is extra friendly and they have great food too!

This hotel is by far the best hotel I have ever stayed in such friendly people, beautiful fresh coloured modern rooms. The food was exceptional the waitress and waiter were more than helpful we're falling over us literally, breakfast buffet was terrific all you could possibly eat. Great location close to the nightlife but yet far enough away so you... More

The hotel is perfectly located for the centre and its attraction. The hotel is generally well maintained although some elements look a little dated. This is especially true of the leisure facilities attached, although the pool is plenty large enough to be able to swim laps. The quality of the food available at dinner is high and the buffet breakfast... More

My husband and I celebrated our wedding anniversary in the Ormonde Hotel. From the beginning they made our stay special with loads of personal touches in our suite from Andrew, Duty Manager. They did everything possible, including a late checkout, to make our anniversary memorable. All of that combined with the ideal location of the hotel in the city centre... More

All good for the price. A little disappointed when checking out at 5.00am that the night porter had no change and could not correct my bill. Staff good. Rooms large. Breakfast good. Didn't eat but it look tempting enough. Discount on car park which is good.

Only stayed 1 night at the Ormonde. Very nice entrance but the room was average and not 4star. Although clean, room was dated. Night table had old cigarette burn and certainly gives a bad impression. Bar staff was terrible, not sure they knew what they were doing...maybe regular bartender didn't show. Four of us waited 15 minutes to get served,... More
