Good standard

Pros: Good size rooms.
Cons: Range of food in restaurant.
Location: There are so many sights to see within a few miles - a fabulous coastline!
Good standard of hotel for the cost of rooms. Rooms are of a good size and standard. Only other comment is that it is badly signed posted from the main Dublin Road whilst coming out of town. There is a great sign in the other direction. Apart from that I would recommend the hotel.

Lovely wee stay. Plenty of room in room for little one to play. Great selection for breakfast. Nothing to much bother for staff to take care of. This was our second stay as a family. Will be back again at some stage. Staff all very pleasant and helpful.
