Lawlors Hotel

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

I stayed at this hotel ten years ago at that time it was a very well run establishment. My wife booked a weekend recently on my recommendation sad to say it didn't live up to my expectations food end was all right staff looked a bit shabby housekeeping was very bad won't be visiting this hotel in the near future.

Had the best stay in this hotel 31/3/18 from the minute we walked in the staff made us feel so welcome all 25 of us. Food was absolutely out of this world everyone cleared their plates. We had a cocktail demo in the hotel as part of our hen party package the two staff members doing it were very funny and really helpful.. I would definetly recommend this hotel and will definetly be a returning customer. Olive was so nice to deal with and helped make our hen night planning so much easier..

Just returned from a 3 night stay with Just Go Holidays.We stayed in room 110 on the first floor,which was clean and tidy with comfortable beds.The food was very very good and varied.The hotel looked like it has recently been refurbished and every room was very clean.reception staff were always very polite and helpful.We are intending going back in the Summer but this time we will take our car.The experience at the Lawlors was a pleasant one despite the poor reviews that i read before going.

Stayed 3 nights on a Just Go coach holiday. If I was just reviewing the room I would have to give it full marks - It was clean and comfortable, pretty well maintained and we slept well on the comfortable beds. However the restaurant was another matter. The breakfast service was good, apart from the last morning when there was only 1 poor waitress serving 2 coachloads of people their breakfast. The service at the evening meals can only be described as a complete and utter disgrace - to say it was disjointed and poorly organised is a real understatement. I don't know whether it was the kitchen to blame or the waiting staff or a mixture of both but it can only be described as a complete shambles, which there is no excuse for this since the hotel caters for coach parties on a regular basis. There were 3 starters and 3 main courses. Instead of serving table by table the food came out all starter 1, all starter 2, all starter 3. The same thing happened with the main course all 1, all 2, then all 3, but the vegetables came out either before the first or after the 3r meaning you either got hot meat/fish and cold veg or hot veg and cold meat/fish. Someone on our table asked for horseradish sauce to go with their beef, and they waited that long for it to arrive that their dinner was getting cold so they carried on without it. it never did arrive in the end. I can only say that the restaurant badly lets down what would otherwise be an excellent hotel and because of this my review gives the hotel only 3/5.

Stopped over for x1 night, the hotel is adequate enough but it is badly in need of decorating. My room was basic, the sheets were clean & fresh, the water was hot but the bath & shower are very 80's !!!. Saying that the food & service were excellent. If you like a real 'retro feel' then its highly recommended.

I organised a stag party in Dungarvan and chose Lawlors for our accommodation based on a recommondation by a friend. Olive handled my booking and she made organising the whole thing so easy considering the number of rooms I needed to book at the same time. Great communication and flexible too. I also included a steak dinner in our deal and this was totally worth it. Great quality food and the restaurant staff were very friendly and accommodating. A huge thanks to Eanna who was very accommodating and patient with our group into the very early hours too. One of the best porters in the country! Thanks for a great weekend everyone in Lawlors!!

I stopped in lawlors after a long day at a meeting and thought I need good food. My first mistake. The waiter was very nice he showrd me a seat in the restaurant i asked if i could have potatoe with my fish instead of chips. That was ok. The food came the potatoe frozen but i thought ok il manage. I then saw no tartar sauce or lemon. There was no staff around ao when i saw a staff passing i called him he rolled his eyes and i ended up saying asking if im inconveniencing him. I said im just looking for lemon and tartar sauce ge replied the girls so that. I was put in my place. The waiter that was origionally serving me came back and was very obliging. I ate dessert the cheescake was anything but blood orange. I left knowing il never stwp in there again.

We stayed here on our first music weekend experience and everything about the experience was excellent and very enjoyable. The room was spacious, clean and comfortable, cosy and warm. We booked with all meals and concert included and the food and service was especially good,complements to the pleasant staff. The music was very enjoyable also and we danced day and night especially to Robert Moselle. We will defiantly return.

Oh how great it was to visit here during the terrible weather of March 2018. A warm welcome with a wonderful selection of lunch options a available. The experience gets better as the portions are generous and any mix and match is available to quell the pangs of hunger. Thank you so much for alleviating the cabin fever brought about by heavy snow and doing so with superb friendly service and excellent food.

This hotel is nicely situated in Dungarvan town. The room was basic and overall the hotel does require redecorating or renovation. The soundproofing between my room and the adjacent one was not good , bathroom was tiny and not well set up. The plus sides are that the staff were v helpful , the price was v reasonable and the hotel is close to the centre of Dungarvan with it's nice town square with some great pubs and restaurants there. The area around Dungarvan is well worth a look: the coast towards Tramore is beautiful in parts , plus visits to the Waterford greenway and the Mahon falls area were great.
