The staff were friendly, warm and welcoming and the hotel itself was very well presented. There were plenty of hand sanitisation stations dotted throughout the public areas which put my mind at ease during my short stay in the hotel. (September '20)

Has all the Hallmarks of Rip-Off Ireland about it!
Only fair to be honest!!! Having booked one of their (on site but away from the main hotel) apartments for a family stay-cation, we were all very underwhelmed with the quality of the rooms and decor. I get the whole covid compliance thing, but this experience went to the extreme. The "Queen-Size" bed was just two singles pushed together and the main bedroom completely lacked character (starting with nothing on the walls). I hope you are an early riser...if not, the fact that there are no drapes in any of the bedrooms, the sunrise will have you up and doing nice and early (pic taken before 8am). Failing that, the railway station tannoy from right next door will more than get you moving!!! My family and I have stayed at this hotel many times in the past, without complaint. The staff are fantastic throughout, nothing is ever too much to ask. These "apartments" are more suited to business centre type use, keep doing what you do best with your hotel rooms. At €500 per night, there must be better than this.
