    Have just spent a lovely one night stay at this hotel. We were made very welcome by Maureen The bedroom was newly refurbished and the bed itself was the most comfortable I have ever slept in when away from home bar none. The room was very comfortable and cosy.

  • Mr D Jones

    Stayed over the period of the Irish Open, had a really great time, Maureen was a superb host sorting taxis out for our trips to the course. Rooms were excellent and the breakfast is 1st class. If you needed anything staff would do anything to get it for you. I would recommend a stay here as I will be back again.
