Recent guest reviews

We were told on arrival we would be in another wing on the top floor. There was staf to help but a difficult place to stay if you. Have a bad knee. Also not that close to the downtown pubs where we hoped to hear Irish music . Also plan your trip so you are not driving to or from this hotel or around town during rush hour- long backups on the roads.

This is a nice hotel, the rooms are a little dated but the lobby and bar area is great! It is a good 15-20 minutes to the city center but not a bad walk!

It was a great experience from beginning to end. The staff was so friendly and helpful. I would highly recommend this hotel and would love to go there again.

I stayed two nights - one each before and after a guided cycling trip. The first night I was on the 3rd floor and didn't hear a THING from a huge wedding in the hotel. Sadly that day the lift was out of order, but they were great about bringing my luggage up and down for me. The second night I was in a lower level room and was awakened in the middle of the night by some event in the hotel. When I called down the front desk said he would tell the manager but nothing really came of that. The event ended at 1 am when he said it was scheduled to end so I was awake for over an hour listening to it. Lift was fixed, very nice staff, comfy beds.

This is a very old least the building structure and deco...the room is nice and clean and the staff are friendly. The 2 grouses were; 1. if you stay on the second floor like we did, you will need to take 2 separate elevators to get there...a bit of inconvenience 2. fortunately the weather was pretty cool when we were there...there is no air-condition in the room, so if you are warm in the room, you need to open your window. There is however a heater.
