Great National Abbey Court Hotel & Spa

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Abbey Court is well situated, Great parking, lovely staff however the hotel is a bit tired and the foyer area needs and upgrade. Breakfast was excellent however they could have a hot food buffet which would make it better. The staff were wonderful. I would stay again but 3 stars is a fair score .

Stayed here over Easter or was our second visit. We stayed in 3 bed house. Houses are roomy and well equipped and we enjoyed our stay. The staff are helpful and friendly, the town is within walking distance and there's a Lidl supermarket next door. There's a park/playground beside the hotel which the kids loved and the pool is great. The food in the bar isn't great, we cooked 2 nights and ate in the bar 1 night, but the food was disappointing.

We stayed here for 2 nights over Easter. From the moment we arrived it was welcoming and comfortable. We had a lovely family room with plenty of space and really comfortable beds. It was spotless. Staff were all extremely friendly. The leisure centre was nice. A great big jacuzzi which meant people weren't awkward waiting for people to leave or sitting on top of each other. Loads of locals there who were all friendly too . Breakfast was nice. The kids loved the pancake machine - what a great idea. Ate in the restaurant one night and it did not disappoint. Overall a nice spot for a family trip away.

Went here recently as part of a private lunch party. Staff were very good but that's where the good ends. This was the poorest quality food we ever had. Bread rolls were definitely from the day before, reheated. Roast beef was such poor quality, so tough and way too much fat served on the plate. Vegetarian bean stew was the driest tasteless dish I've ever had, not sure why it had the big lump of burnt cheese on top but it was not good. Side dishes of over cooked boiled veg with no seasoning or taste then undercooked roast potatoes just isn't good enough. Dessert I thought would have to be better but no, "fresh fruit salad" from a can is just not good enough. Absolutely no effort made here, won't be back

Wonderful staff that just can't do enough for you. Had a great trip and food was lovely too. Kids loved the facilities and there is a great playground just outside the hotel grounds. Definitely going back.

The Abbey Court is a short distance from the centre of Nenagh, Co. Tipperary. The room I had was satisfactory and dated not luxurious. TV needs updating. Curtains are not blackout and rooms facing road are not soundproofed. Swift check-in and check-out.

We travelled a long way to have lunch in the Fairways Gastropub near Nenagh and were disappointed to find when we got there that it was closed down ! (Better check places out beforehand) . Anyway we were hungry as we drove into Nenagh and the first place we came across was the Abbey Court Hotel . We went in and the place looked like a well run 3 star hotel . The restaurant was fairly busy which was a good sign . The luncheon menu was a bit dated but perfectly acceptable . My wife had sea bass which was quite good . We ate in a high end restaurant on Mothers Day and I had shoulder of lamb which was very good . I had shoulder of lamb here and I have to say that I never eaten more succulent lamb anywhere in my life . The only criticism I would offer is that maybe this hotel should consider cutting back on the amount vegetables they serve with main courses . Our desserts were lovely although a bit on the large size . However if the only complaint I am making is about getting too much to eat then I am doing this hotel a disservice .

Nothing bad to say here. Very nice hotel. Lovely staff from checkin, though to dinner in the restaurant, breakfast and in the bar (in fact possibly the nicest and most helpful hotel staff I have met in some time. Hats off to the restaurant Manager on the Saturday night, he was an absolute joy to deal with, very refreshing ! Accommodation wise, very comfortable room, very spacious, a high standard for a 3 star hotel. I did not use the leisure facilities but they certainly looked excellent. Food was very good. We had dinner and both of us were thoroughly impressed. Breakfast was good too. This hotel in my opinion is as good as any four star in the country. If you are passing through Nenagh or fancy a weekend away, consider this hotel, you won't be disappointed.

What a fabulous hotel couldn't fault anything food amazing staff can't do enough for you worth every penny absolutely first class thanks to you all for a memorable stay will be back as soon as possible

Just back from a two night break for Patrick's weekend with our three boys. Absolutely fab break. Have stayed here three times but it was always in the self catering lodges,this time we decided to stay in the hotel so as to have breakfast in the mornings. As always the staff could not do enough for us from start to finish( and we had a lot of requests with three kids)!! From bringing extra towels to a plaster for my sons finger they were so kind and helpful. The room was really big,big bath,all very clean. Pool lovely as always with lots of floats etc which my boys loved. Breakfast was so lovely and relaxed,plenty of choice and my boys loved the individual cereals etc. My five year old even ordered poached eggs on toast and he ate the lot! The chef was v friendly,had no problem going off to warm milk for baby's weetabix, manager was around during the breakfast to lend an extra hand to the staff and chat to quests. We sat for over an hour,which is rare for us but it was all so calm! We enjoy Nenagh town walking from the hotel to the shops and bars although we stayed in the hotel a lot as the kids were happy! We will be back again for our next mini break!
