Stayed here just for one night. On check in the staff were very friendly and helpful. Nothing seemed an issue for them. Rooms are nice we had two beds in each room. Very clean throughout. Breafast was €10 and a bargain price for unlimited continental and a cooked brrakfast. We will defiantly be using this hotel on our return visits...

Stayed for one night in the hotel on a Saturday. Staff were lovely and very friendly. The room was a nice size. Everything was very clean and well maintained. The location was fantastic. Great value overall and enjoyed the stay. I would say that from our room you could hear the live music in the bar, this didn't bother us...
