Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We had a 2 night stay and were upgraded to the new couples deluxe rooms by Patrizia. She took our booking by email and was very helpful. She came out of the office to meet us personally on arrival. She is an absolute credit to the hotel. We have stayed here on many occasions with the kids and always have a wonderful time. Rooms are very clean and spacious. My only gripe would be the tables in the bar are always reserved for food so no where to have a drink only the lobby. Perhaps opening the restaurant for dinner in the evenings would sort the issue. But will definitely be returning again soon

Lovely hotel, very poor personal skills by the desk staff. Very unfriendly and lacked any courtesy maybe its due staff stress but it was unacceptable on arrival and departure. Outside this hotel was very clean and well run. Breakfast and dinner were very enjoyable

Every time we are in Portlaoise we stay at the Midlands Park. It’s a really nice hotel. The rooms are clean and spacious and the bed is incredibly comfortable. We also like and use the gym, swimming pool and steam room. The staff are always friendly and welcoming which makes a huge difference. A big plus is Kelly’s Steak House at the hotel and we eat here every time. The food is to die for. I would say this time the service was slower than normal which was not typical previously so maybe just a bad night. It doesn’t put us off going back next time though.

I took my partner here for his 30th and stayed in one of their luxurious Executive Suites for two nights back in October - it was most definitely the highlight of our time at the hotel. Ideal for couples for looking that romantic trip away! However, while our room itself was exceptional, I found that the hotel fell short on the small things, like attention to detail, or perhaps lack of correspondence between departments. To be honest we experienced some minor issues that detracted from the overall experience. For instance, I had booked a package deal which included a 3 course meal (set menu and not a great selection to choose from) and had arranged with reception for a birthday message for my partner's dessert - it never happened. Our package also included complimentary breakfast in bed for both mornings. We ended up not being able to avail of the service on our second morning and ended up having to go down to the restaurant which we were disappointed about. I also ended up getting charged for both mornings, HOWEVER, the problem has resolved at checkout, and as a result they paid for our car parking fee - credit where credit's due!! With a bit more focus on the finer details, I think the Midlands has the potential to truly stand out as a five-star destination.
