“Fair value for a fair price”
Reviewed 16 January 2012

I have stayed many times in this hotel. The bar food is at best just OK. The rooms are large but are in need of refurbishment. Live football is available on screens in the bar but not in your bedrooms. The pool facilities are good for a town centre hotel. The hotel is popular with locals and is always busy which generates a good atmosphere.

Room Tip: Ask for a room in the main body of the hotel otherwise you will wander around corridors lost.

Have stayed in the Seven Oaks twice in the last month and on both occasions was blown away by the customer service and genernal niceness of staff. The management of this hotel must be good as individual staff members were all helpful in a very genuine manner, my perception was that they were a happy bunch!

The food was pretty good, we ate in the bar area and the portions were both good and tasty, In particular the kids roast of the day was excellent value at less than 6euro. Breakfast was a mix of self service continental and a hot buffet - if I had any request it would be for transparent lids on the hot buffet so people are aware of what is there when they request breakfast items! Having said that the guy serving the buffet must have thought I needed more food and started suggesting items I might like to add in!

The pool area was clean and pretty nice and again staff were very helpful. Bedrooms were excellent, lots of space and when I booked a triple and single room the triple had a double and two singles and the single had a double and a single!!

Room Tip: ask for room away from main road if possible,
