Checked into Jackson’s Hotel this week as a essential worker. I was check in by a lovely friendly lady called Sinead she explained to me in detail about the rules and regulations within the hotel about COVID. She checked me into a beautiful large room with a walk out balcony. I found the bed comfortable and the room warm and spacious. I went to the bar area and found the staff to be friendly and they service was excellent I had breakfast the following morning again I found the staff to be friendly and the food was excellent especially the porridge I also meet the owner Tommy in the breakfast room he check with me and the rest of the residents to make sure we were all looked after and if we had any complaints as for myself I had no complaints and enjoyed my night stay. I will be back and for sure I will be recommending Jackson’s Hotel to my clients as I am a tour guide. I would like to thank Tommy the owner and his friendly staff for making me welcome.
