Hotel was nice and very child friendly. Only complaint was that room was very warm and uncomfortable as a result. Staff were most pleasant and helpful. Breakfast was good. Could do with having more lifts near reception.

Great hotel with brilliant family facilities. The indoor play area and crazy golf were a big hit. The staff are very friendly and helpful. The food is great too. We will be staying here for all our trips back to Co. Clare.
