Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Everything was perfect. Room stunning, bed comfortable. Breakfast was everything you could want. Unable to comment on pool as we did not use. Staff friendly and very helpful. Will look to book again if in the area.

Limerick, Ireland1 contribution
Stayed with my wife and 14-month old daughter. Staff contacted me prior to our stay to firm up any additional requests (walk-in shower, cot, fridge in room) and had everything ready ahead of time. Staff were very friendly, courteous, and obliging throughout our stay. Ate in the bar twice and enjoyed our meals (and baby bowl). Plenty of variety in terms of breakfast options (hot buffet, porridge and toast to order). Plenty of parking and pleasant gardens for a stroll. Steps down to bar and dining room not ideal in terms of accessibility but staff happy to assist. Lift to bedrooms and within dining room.

My family and I spent the weekend here to celebrate my birthday. In all experiences we have had, we never experienced anything like the excellence of the staff. The hotel itself was spotless and very comfortable, food was delicious, service excellent but the natural professional friendliness of every single staff member we encountered was what made the weekend for us.

We booked a 2 night family break over Feb 2024 mid-term and our room was more than adequate size-wise and very clean. Majority of staff we encountered were super friendly particularly one lady on breakfast service on both mornings we were there could not do enough for us. Also one of the leisure staff who allowed me in to the pool area to watch my daughter swim and provided shoe coverings so I could do so with ease. I tried the gym out and the entire gym area really needs a good clean, machines are filthy with no signage prompting users to wipe down machines, gross. We planned our trip to include one evening dining in the hotel bar and we were sorely disappointed in the food. Again I feel Irish hotels continue to try and do 'too much' when it comes to menus with 25 plus items on offer and none done well. Please focus on a smaller number of items of a higher standard. We had a delicious lunch the following day in a local cafe where the quality and value for money far exceeded the hotel bar.
