Stayed here at the end of August last year on what was a memorable stay for all the wrong reasons. Having enjoyed a week in Dublin, we checked in early on a Friday afternoon and made our way to the room. The room, with its outdated decor, was not very clean to say the least. The bathroom was decorated with discolored tiling, spots of mildew and smelt of moldy sports gear. We were given a different room upon speaking with reception and were shown to a room where the TV didn't work properly and there was no milk or towels. Another call to reception! We were relieved to be out off the first room, and due to tiredness we decided to stay in the hotel and have dinner rather than venture out straight away. Big mistake! A really simple pasta dish shouldn't be so hard to get right but there was all the sophistication of a cheap and nasty student canteen about this particular meal. Waiting staff were distracted and generally absent. We waited for 45 mins for our main course. It was a meal I could have prepared in the kettle in the room!
I would suggest checking out Lough Boora & Birr on a day trip from Dublin maybe because our stay here put a real damper on what was an otherwise great trip. Birr is a nice little town in the summer. Bad food and bad service is just unacceptable for this price and can really ruin your stay!
