We just called in for drinks in the public bar. It was a good atmosphere with friendly locals and other visitors all mixing well. There was entertainment in the form of a singer giving very good renditions of Irish folk songs etc. A good evening & not too expensive.

Creaky stairs, carpet everywhere, old fashioned armchairs on the landing for a nice reading spot, I loved it. The bar is very...

Simplified... Nice hotel, with nice staff, but in desperate need of an upgrade to the rooms. Smallest TV I have ever encountered in over 20 years of travel. Breakfast... disaster. Overall rating 4/10!
