The pillows in the bed room were low quality, very hard sponge. A option for a softer pillow would be welcome. Overall not a bad hotel, probably more of a 3.5 * than a four star. The staff were excellent. I understand the premium rooms are much better than the standard rooms.

Not as good as I hoped

Pros: not much!! rooms were comfy
Cons: everything
They called me after I booked and paid to tell me that the restaurant was closed and that they were only serving carvery. And in the middle of eating the waiter was taking things off my table and constantly hovering about!! The place is dirty and dated... carpets that lead towards the spa were riddled with staines... also you have to walk through the restaurant to get to the spa, so it was a good thing it wasnt open. Everything was just tacky and dated. To think they have a 4 star rating and good reviews. NOT worth the £80 I paid, Would have complained at £40 Not going to stay here again

Great experience

Pros: The friendly staff, our room and the pool.
Cons: The bar service. Especially regarding food. There was an exceptionally long delay and it was quite disorganised.
Location: A few minutes walk from town. Highly recommend The Dunbrody ship tour. One of the best things we have done in Ireland. Half hour drive to beach.
Lovely hotel just a few minutes walk from New Ross. Spotlessly clean room family room with plenty of space. Great swimming pool. Ate in the bar. Crowded and expensive but good food. Should have chosen dining room. Outstandingly nice staff throughout the hotel. Recommended.
