“What a view!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 February 2012

We stayed in the Trim Castle Hotel on 26 February 2012. It is a very good hotel in a great location. The view from our room looked over Trim Castle, very romantic! The room itself was ample in size with everything we needed, comfy armchairs, a kettle with tea, coffee & hot chocolate, flat screen TV & one of the most comfortable beds I ever slept in. All the staff are very helpful but the staff in the Bailey Restaurant deserve special mention. Trim town has loads of beautiful sights & walks.

My husband attended a wedding in the Hotel on a Friday recently. The Hotel is a modern building and overlooks the Castle in Trim so those visitors hoping for an Irish Castle this is not it!. Our Room was on the 4th Floor and was spacious and very clean. However the rate of €110 is a bit steep now in Ireland for B & B. Breakfast was served buffet style, nothing special just adequate. Room was extremely warm and it was uncomfortable for the guests as a lot complained. Maintenance guy arrive and it seemed to improve afterwards. However the hotel is very warm where ever you go, even with a window open in the room it was very stuffy with no air conditioning available. The wedding was excellent and the food was good. However, despite the fact we were on the 4th Floor and left early at 1am to go to bed, you could still hear the music from the wedding until 2.30am very clearly in our room. I pity any guests who were not part of the wedding party as I don't know how they would have slept. If I was staying for a quiet weekend would have complained. Car park fee was €3 for the night but think this should be free for guests. Staff were friendly and helpful however could do with more on Reception when guests are checking in as there was a long queue when we arrived at 5pm. Checkout was more painless but they did not stamp our car park ticket correctly so we had to go back inside when the barrier would not lift and get it stamped again.
Good hotel for a wedding and shop in the lobby area was excellent. Coffee Shop was also busy with a lot of locals so seems like it is a popular place to go.

Hotel was lovely, room n food were great only thing is their function room for weddings is on the 1st floor. We were on the 4th floor and could hear music from a wedding function that was on until 2.30am. We were not part of the wedding party nor were we told there was a wedding on when we booked.
We're a young couple so we're not adverse to a bit of noise or loud music but this was 2 floors below us and was really loud still.
We rang the reception / night porter a few times to complain and asked if we had not informed when we booked that we were not part of wedding party and there was nothing he could do. Why would we inform that we're not part of a wedding party when booking a hotel when we didnt know one was on. My BF had asked is there anything happening when we booked and told "No we're very quiet at the moment" and my BF said great as it's a birthday treat and want a relaxing stay.
Next morning we complained to reception and told the same. Very annoyed, they didnt even offer us a discount on the stay or anything back for the disruption or incovenience and basically said she couldnt do anything.

Room Tip: ASk if there's a wedding function on before you stay!

We booked this hotel as part of a hen party package in conjunction with Causey Farm which included lunch on arrival at the hotel, our transfer to and from Causey Farm, all activities on the farm, a five course dinner in the hotel restaurant that night, and overnight stay with breakfast the following morning.
We were very impressed with the hotel overall, it is a really nice modern hotel, extremely clean and the staff are very friendly and helpful. This package is very good value and everything was taken care of from start to finish. I would highly recommend this hotel if you are booking a hen package or just a weekend away.

Had a lovely time at this hotel recently with my husband. The main grumble I would have was with the meal we had there as part of the deal. Whilst the food itself was delicious the presentation left a little to be desired. The duck spring rolls starter consisted of one spring roll which, while very tasty, was a bit meagre. The beautiful steak and chips would have benefitted from an accompanying salad or vegetable selection and the black forest gateau dessert came minus the advertised ice-cream. In addition I was not told at booking that the restaurant did not open on Monday nights and our meal would be served in the bar. This was only discovered the night before we arrived. As this was a Valentine's break it was disappointing. However, it is a lovely hotel and we had a fabulous view of Trim Castle from our room, which was spacious and comfortable.
