Great range of food on the menu. Very friendly and efficient staff. The new décor is beautiful. We both had the burger and it was superb with proper onion rings as a side. Would highly recommend.

Stayed here for two nights over the Easter. It is always pleasing to be told that you were upgraded free to an executive room. The room was beautiful and the food food was excellent right through from breakfast to dinner and the prices were excellent, much cheaper than Dublin prices

Bright well laid out restaurant with window alcoves and more private areas by the pillars. Pleasant view on to the garden. An enjoyable experience.
