Restaurant people are excellent, great service. Room was clean, room service average. you could only do large breakfast (expensive), no medium option. The restaurant was busy every night, and the food was not the same each night, depending on how busy they were. Sometimes they forgot to include all items on plate. The receptionist was not welcoming, haven't seen the...

Thanks for the feedback S! Glad you enjoyed your stay. We generally offer our guests a continental breakfast in their rooms but as you were here for a conference your company had organised breakfast in the Bistro every day.

So glad you enjoyed your stay at the Shamrock and being St Pat's Day would have made it extra special for anyone celebrating the occasion. Many of our guests comment on how quiet the rooms are and the bonus of a complimentary Continental Breakfast is always a winner. Look forward to seeing you again!

The experience was very friendly and even checking in at 2am after a long drive was a pleasure. Spacious and neat rooms, convenient Restaurant and Bar next door. Large areas for parking around the motel and inside especially handy when travelling with trailers etc.

The room was very large complete with a kitchenette. A continental breakfast was in our room prior to arrival consisting of juices, yoghurts, toast with selection of spreads and cereals. The room was very quiet, perfect for a good nights rest.

Great place! Clean and quiet rooms with a continental breakfast supplied. Absolutely fantastic bistro. Delicious meals at a reasonable price. No need to go anywhere else. Close to the uni so convenient to visit your children.

Great value for money, complementary in-room continental Breakfast each day. Rooms are very clean, modern feel, looks like they where upgraded not long ago. Great pub next door, with very nicely priced meals. Right o n the highway. Only downside is that parking is a bit tight, with trucks and trailers, but well worth the stay.
