I received an email inviting me to add a review. I wasn't going to mention how disappointed I was with this hotel beforehand but have now decided to go ahead. Firstly we had no hot water but that was taken into consideration when paying the bill without me having to complain about it. The attached photos will speak for themselves!...

Stayed for just one night for work purposes. Very friendly welcome, within the hour we were on first name terms. Food in restaurant was excellent, very busy for Monday night which was a good sign. Room was very comfortable, more than I expected for a "single". Large reception area would be great if you arrived as a big group or...

After a very stressful few weeks we decided to book into the Glenside drogheda, expecting a nice hotel with good service and a relaxing atmosphere. To say i was sorely disappointed was an understatement. Upon arrival we waited 15 mins at reception before someone finally arrived. This was after her passing us twice to seat others in the restaurant and...

My wife and I returned home from Canada to baptise our first child over Christmas. All the staff were extremely helpful especially as we were organising the event from Canada prior to coming home. Marie was extremely helpful while organising the day and was on hand to make sure we were happy with the day and everything went to plan....

The food here is ok. The waitresses could do with being a bit more pleasant. Our waitress simply had no patience. She just wanted to take the order as quickly as possible and didn't give you any time to think. Maybe she was having a bad day or had other problems. But if you dealing with the public, even you're...
