I stayed here before a job interview. Great hotel, large room and large bathroom, great food and the best thing of all was the staff. They are incredible. I would stay here again. Great spot. It was great value for what I paid. Plenty of party and just a short trip to Armagh.

We stayed here for one night. Great family hotel. Good facilities and helpful staff. Very late check in as we arrived at 1pm. One of the rooms ready at 3.30 and the other at 4.30... enjoyed the break and leisure facilities! Very family orientated.

Myself my wife and 2 kids had a great stay at this hotel. We will definitely be back again soon. Plenty for the kids to do and the staff were brilliant. Kids loved playing in the pool and then they hung out in the kids club for a couple of hours.
