I loved the three nights that I stayed at the Ardilaun. I like the comfortable old décor, wool carpets and lots of nooks and crannies to sit in for peace and quiet. Food was great. The bar was one of the friendliest ever and I was looked after like someone who had been going there for 40 years. Thanks Thomas...

The hotel decor is a little dated but the rooms are large and airy and provide you with a clean and comfortable place to relax. The hotel has multiple wings and floors.

Stayed for 2 nights for friends wedding. The service was really good throughout. The food in bar and restaurant was typical hotel style....not bad. The rooms were not big but clean. The hotel itself was dated and probably needs a revamp. The cost was pricey and not clue for money. The late bar and service of staff made up for...

Really enjoyed the few days here. Brilliant family hotel, good location. Friendly staff and great service. Food in both restaurants and at breakfast perfect. I especially liked the kids menu which offered an excellent range of food and not your typical kids menu.
