    Very good

    Family hotel . Friendly staff. Lovely walled garden...needs some attention. Our room was a good size. Possible to walk to Birr from hotel. I thought €119 for room wast expensive without evening meal.

    Expensive without meal included. Or lower price for room.

    Fabulous

    Good location for walking into Birr.

    The room was over the leisure centre and at night I couldn't sleep because of the constant drone from the plant in the centre, the noise couldn't even be blocked out by ear plugs.

    Ideal location close to Birr and wedding we were attending

    Fabulous

    The walls are paper thin and I could hear regular conversations next door. Tub is too narrow to stand in.

    Fabulous

    Excellent staff throughout the hotel. Good food & drink. Leisure facilities were good. Cleanliness of room & bathroom.

    Nothing negative to say about the hotel only an observation to make that the leisure facilities changing rooms could do with updating.

    Superb

    The receptionist was very helpful and friendly on our arrival to the hotel she also checked us out the following morning and was as pleasent as the previous day. The food was also very nice.

    The towels provided for the leisure centre were more like hand towels than bath towels

    Very good

    The breakfast was excellent! The location was great for us because my father grew up right around the corner at Drumbaune.

    We had requested a king size bed 10 days before our arival and when we got there we were given a room with 2 beds and were told there were no rooms left with a king size bed.

    Fabulous

    The bed room were very comfortable

    could do with hiring more bar staff/waiters to deal with big groups

  • 7.4
    Very good

    The food in the hotel was lovely and the waiting staff were really polite and very chatty. In particular in the morning, the lady and gent working were so nice and chatty.

    Our room was extremly close to the lift and the walls were quite thin. Also the rooms could do with a bit of updating (horrible shower curtain, extremly old tv)

  • 7.4
    Very good

    the staff were friendly and the food though we thought expensive was of a good quality, mind you we are from England so all prices seem high
