Underrated and undiscovered.
Had a fantastic night in this hotel. Lovely staff and very helpful. The staff upgraded my room to a deluxe as it was my birthday and I hadn't even known only for my girlfriend had asked to upgrade. When I needed a phone charger they were quick to assistance with a USB type extension lead so I went out to hit the town fresh and recharged. I would happily come back to this hotel and I am currently planning to.

Ok, lacks any luxury or quality touches
Great pool complex, rooms feel dated and overheated and no luxury feel. Breakfast was ok, and that summarises the overall stay and not sure I would go back

Perfect from start to finish
Lovely experience from check in to check out. Staff were extremely helpful and even managed to find us an adapter for our charger ! They also ensured we had a room with a bathtub as requested and there were lovely argon oil cosmetics in the bathroom. Breakfast was very good - great to have a selection of vegetarian options for me in addition to a full Irish for my husband! The leisure center was lovely and staff were very helpful (giving us towels, explaining access to facilities, providing plastic bags for wet swimsuits). It was a 10 min walk to the main section of the town and there were also bars near the hotel too. The tea & coffee caddy in the room was well stocked - lots of coffee biscuits too !!! We brought our own French press and ground coffee as that’s our preference over instant. Everything was wonderful.
