My wife and I booked in to this hotel based on TA reviews, and we were so impressed. It's such a change to stay in a Hotel that has so much history in it. The room we stayed in, 116, had a four poster bed, 10' ceilings and stained glass windows, yet the ensuite was modern in comparison. The bed...

Booked a night here recently, what a delightful place to stay, staff very friendly and helpful. It has a real warm family - friendly feel about it. It's quite quaint in its interior, its a period residence full of interesting nooks. Bedrooms were small but very cosy. You get to open a real window and can alter the temperature of...

I have had the pleasure to eat here on a number of occasions over the last few years. The restaurant is fantastic, excellent food and service in a beautiful setting. The bar food is also of a very high standard and is also a lovely setting for a couple of drinks. I can honestly say I would highly recommend Scholars...

The hotel is beautiful with a lot of wood panelling in the public areas and the hallways. It is a boutique hotel. We really enjoyed our stay but you need to be aware that the rooms are quite small, albeit comfortable. Breakfast was excellent but it is not a buffet. You choose from a fixed menu. Definitely worth a visit.

We booked this hotel for a weekend away. The location was central to Drogheda town and, as we had a hire car for our stay, the guest car park was a large part of choosing to stay here. The hotel's public rooms are beautiful, with a good size bar / lounge area and separate restaurant, but what really makes this...

Rooms disappointing - bedroom very small with a 12 inch TV while the bathroom was equally tiny. Good restaurant. Better to eat there and find alternate accomodation particularly as relatively expensive for the quality.

Very lovely building but in my opinion not the best place to stay. Maybe the other rooms were better, or maybe my expectative was too high, I was expecting a big room with the big bed and bla bla bla, but we got just a regular one. When we arrive the parking lot was full they said it was because...

We booked this hotel for my son's Confirmation day outing and it turned out to be a great choice. The hotel is old world, classy, stylish and with a relaxing ambiance. The dining area was lovely - a table for 8 of us by the window with excellent service. The food was delicious with interesting and varied menu choices. My...
