The most charming hotel building I have ever been to. Add to that the personal touch in having my country's flag in the wind in the yard when we arrived. Perfect welcome! We got the best advice for where to go in the city, and thanks to that a great night out. The only thing that was missing was the...

We found this by accident having just come from the ferry and it was lovely. Decor very sumptuous and cosy, a warm welcome, car parking and the most wonderful dinner of trout pate followed by risotto with a very nice merlot. A good start to our Irish holiday.

Have visited this Hotel on many occasions with the family. The staff were very accommodating as we have "allergy" issues to contend with. Nothing was a problem. Staff went out of their way to ensure our children could have what they wanted. Food was above excellent and we were'nt rushed. Menu is amazing.

Very well run small hotel that is full of character and a great location in the town. The front gardens are beautifully kept with nice waterfalls and an abundance of floral displays and plenty seating. The minute you walk through the door you are surrounded by beautiful wooden panels, fantastic ornate ceilings, paintings and a lovely feeling of stately home...

We spent a night here and do not think we will return. We found the accommodation extremely cramped with barely enough room to even get around the bed. We contemplated leaving our suitcase out on the landing to give us a bit more space. We had a meal in the restaurant and had to send 2 main courses back. Overpriced...

Love staying here, when I visit Ireland. Clean rooms, and good sizes. Unlike most hotels on Drogheda, its quiet, was able to stay on weekends, without loud parties taking place. The food in both the pub and restaurant are great. Love the hamburger.

Beautiful small, family run hotel with great service. I was greeted at the door with open arms to help me with bags since there is no lift. So accommodating. Tea before we left to meet family and then great bar and bar tender upon our return for night caps. Fantastic breakfast served as part of the room charge. I was...
