I stayed here not so long ago with my partner and kids. Hotel is nice lobby and bar are very modern but the bedrooms are a bit outdated. Play room is a nice feature to the hotel kept the kids quite happy. Dinner was good and hit the spot after along day out, Our waitress Jenni was lovely and accommodating to us but especially our kids, offering them coloring and engaging in conversation which you don’t see much of. Breakfast was good , some friendly faces on arrival. Good options overall. Will definitely be back over the summer months.

Our second time to stay here. Room was spotless, kettle wasnt working but a brand new one was brought to the room within minutes of ringing reception. Rooms were hot at night time as air con is being upgraded but in fairness there was a fine fan in room ! Plenty selection at breakfast time , hot buffet , fruit , cereal etc. Dinner fantastic both evenings in the bar. Went to the pool one evening. Lovely pool but does need a small overhaul as ceiling not the best to look up at and lockers in changing rooms need to be fixed. Other than that staff were all polite and friendly. Will definitely return again.

Stayed for 2 nights as a family of 4 to visit Tayto park , beds were comfortable and bathroom were clean, there was a bottle top left near the window which was never taken so missed by cleaning, rooms were roasting but was given a fan which didnt really help, Food in bar was nice and staff were very good and friendly Breakfast was just fair for a 4 star compared to other hotels,not a great choice for kids no pancakes, my boy can be fussy and only ate toast Swimming pool itself was good and the boys loved it, area around badly needs some money put into it, was told to put clothes and belongings into a plastic box because the lockers were great and to keep an eye to them never have I seen that in any leisure centre, changing area was so cold small kids were crying after coming out of the pool Great parking and playground is nice but I wouldnt pick it as a family hotel, saw it more as couples or tour bus place Both good and bad in this hotel

I've stayed in the Pillo hotel numerous times over the years & I've never received anything short of a 5-Star stay. The hotel is always lovely & clean & the rooms are a very nice size & provide nothing less than you'd expect. Where the hotel exceed's though is definitely through their exemplary, highly professional, competent & compassionate reception staff - Particularly Laura, who I've had the pleasure with dealing with on almost all of my many stays at the Pillo Hotel. She has always gone above & beyond for anything I needed help with, from telling be the barrier key about 10 times in one day all the way to going that that extra mile for the tiniest of issues I bothered her with. Could not rate the Hotel & Laura highly enough & will always be my first port of call when looking for a weekend away in Meath!

Viewed menu online and was looking forward to the experience. On arrival found that a new more limited one was in existence. My wife had the focaccio which consisted of a 6 inch bread roll cut in two, buttered and toasted with dry salad leaves. We both had the hake. It was dry, precooked, lukewarm and lacked flavour. A big disappointment.

I stayed here after attending a party with the Dublin 15 supporters Club. And from the time we arrived until the time we left. The staff were absolutely amazing. Nothing was too much for them. They welcomed us all with open arms. Every single member of staff had a smile on there face and were so warm and friendly, and treated us really well. The function room was absolutely fab. And the guest bedrooms were spotless and so cozy. The food was also top quality, I really enjoyed my time there and will definitely be back. Darrell and Richard (The Manc Supporter) 🤣🤣 are absolute legends 🙌

A big thanks to the staff for making us feel so welcome, the bedroom was clean tidy and spacious. The function room exceptionally laid out, the staff continuously looking after us all night with excellent food and brilliant service. Highly recommended to one and all and huge thank you to all the staff. I would happily stay again . A special thanks must go out to the manager who supported Manchester united but wore a Blue tie , his banter added to an already unforgettable night 👏👏👏👏👏👏
