We really enjoyed the great facilities, excellent location, fantastic staff. Jessica at the front desk was particularly friendly and helpful. We appreciated her command of the English language. The in house morning breakfast was excellent.

Friendly staff, delicious breakfast - lots of options. The rooms are of really poor standard, that has to do merely of the condition of the building, all the cracks in the walls, the roof ,gave you the feeling that the building was falling apart around you.

Charming hotel very, very central. The windows needed a paint job, but no big problem. Good facilities, friendly staff. Large room with a good view from four windows. Close to the station with a little trafic noise.

Most of what you read here is spot-on: this hotel is in a prime location, but is really worn out/dated/tired. We didn't mind too much as we arrived late (at about 9pm) and left again early in the morning, so we were just looking for a cheap place to sleep. So, for the price, I guess it's OK-ish. Main issues...

the hotel location is really good (very close to the city center and the train station) and people are nice, but the rooms, atmosphere and experience was not that good. the rooms furniture are really old, and there were a bad smell in the hotel.

Excellently placed, with 3min walk from the train station. Well placed for local pubs (O'Learys) and restaurants. Simple room but good TV and shower. Coffee and tea in the reception and not in the room. This seems to be the normal situation in most small town hotels. Friendly service and classic European breakfast.
