Seamus took over from Jim on our last day and was super as well. I couldnt say enough about the service. All at reception were so helpful...

This was a very busy hotel that had a lot to offer. There is large function rooms, buffet breakfast, gym and pool, restaurant and bar. It is a cheap taxi ride to town. The rooms were spacious, comfortable and clean.

Had a very pleasant stay here. The room was very nice, clean & the bed was very comfortable. Despite the hotel being packed with families it was very quiet at night. Just a couple of gripes; the 3.30 check in and the teapots for 2 are a bit small.
