“Amazing Spa, Tasty food, shame about the room”
Reviewed 20 February 2012

Revas spa at this hotel is amazing facilities are five star staff are so professional well worth it!! While the hotel staff are very welcoming too when we got to our room that was a bit of a let down it was very dated, musty smell, no handsoap or hand towels in the bathroom although room was spotless those little things let it down but we only slept there so it was fine.
We had a delicious meal at Timmy macs bistro food very tasty and at such good value. Breakfast was only ok though fruit salad definitely not fresh.
Would return again for the spa and meal certainly, not sure if Id stay the night though, maybe if we upgraded the room.

Room Tip: we just had the standard double so maybe go for a superior as double was very basic

Stayed here with family for 1 night. There was a wedding on and initial impression was avaerage as receptionist ( who seemed to a senior member of staff ) seemed to a bit overwhelmed. Otherwise , I would sat the staff were excellent. Room's are nice ( nothing special) and comfortable. Food quality in the hotel was exceelent and partcularly breakfast ; a lot of hotels throw in the complimentary hot iroish buffet breakfast but quality can be quite poor. However ,here the breakfast was top drawer right from choice of breads to quality of hot options. Leisure centre has a lovely swimming pool with 3 levels which my kids enjoyed very much. All in all , this is a nice family run hotel with great food.

Some good features, including great steaks in the Timmy Macs restaurant; our room was fine but with an old style TV & limited range of stations. We had forgotten to bring shampoo etc so I personally found the bottles of gel / shampoo rather awkwardly fixed to the tiled wall several feet over the bath - fine if one wanted a shower.
On arrival, just before 3 pm, we were informed our room may not be ready till 4 pm, so we decided to have a snack in the lobby & ordered sandwich and drinks ( no food allowed in the bar). After about 30 minutes and after reminding reception the food arrived, by which time the room was ready.
I was informed that the wifi had been down on the day (Sunday) we arrived - by Tuesday afternoon when we were leaving, it was still unavailable.
I used the spa, which unusually I was informed had to be booked well in advance; also unusually it only operates from 11am till 3pm. I asked if I could get a hair cut after my hour but was informed later the salon was fully booked - despite this as I was passing (12 noon) it seemed to me the salon was empty. I did not bother using the 2nd spa voucher, .

Room Tip: No elevators / dont depend on Wifi being available / bring you own shampoo etc if you enjoy a bath...

Stay in hotel on a regular business,and that confirms I have largely positive experience of the hotel. However the most recent visit was not to the generally good standard. The restaurant food was ok at best,the lamb stew was just softened meat in hot water.There was also no WiFi,despite strong signals being indicated.Maybe it was an off day,or I was grumpy,but this usually is a solid and welcoming hotel.We will use again ,but hope for better

Hi David,
We would just like to say a míle, míle, míle buíochas for our wonderful reception on the 17th December, 2011. The homely atmosphere from our first dealings with you made the whole experience a thoroughly enjoyable one. Yourself, Elaina and all the staff were so friendly, professional and made our day so relaxing. Service was very efficient and whatever we asked for was 'no problem'. The food was highly complimented by everyone we spoke to afterwards. It was also a pleasure to meet both your Mam & Dad during our time there.
We wish you and all the family continued success for 2012 and look forward to seeing ye on 17th December, 2012 for a little reunion :)
Margaret & Barry
