This was our sixth time to stay at the Ardilaun Hotel and had a very relaxing 4 days staying there. From the time we arrived the staff treated us like we were the only people that mattered,they could not do enough for us during our stay. The food was first class from breakfast,lunch and dinner.

We stayed at The Ardilaun during April for 1 night. The rate including breakfast was 169 euro. While the Hotel was comfortable I could not help but get the impression that some of the rooms were dated. This was evident even in the bedspread which showed signs of age. The staff especially the Bar staff were friendly while some of...
