Got a lovely welcome from Dominika on arrival. Room was nice and big although there were brown dried in splashes all over the bathroom sink. It seemed like it was fake tan or something.

I stayed here last October with my partner. I was really looking forward to our stay. I had ordered a bottle of prosecco for the room as a surprise. On entering the hotel the girl behind the desk was very inattentive. She also 'let the cat out of the bag' with regards to the bottle of prosecco. Whilst this isn't...

Stayed here for one night en route home from Waterford, as we were intending on visiting Kildare Village. The staff were lovely! We had lunch on Sunday in the bar and dinner on the Sunday night - beautiful food, great service and not overly expensive. Breakfast on Monday morning was also great! Can't praise the hotel and its staff enough!...
