Go expecting 4 star facilities and you may be a bit disappointed but it is clean with large rooms and access to an excellent pool (21m) and fitness facilities.

Loved KK and loved the ormond hotel. Booked a family room but had this upgraded to two rooms when there was a problem with extra bed. Accommodation manager Shan Dunne really took charge and sorted problem. Everything else in hotel was super incl leisure centre.
