Positive Reviews

Modern and well-maintained facilities.

Guests were complimentary about the various facilities on offer at the hotel including the on-site spa and the golf course. The course was described as well-presented and the spa was said to be clean and modern. Many thoroughly enjoyed using the indoor pool and the gym which was described as spacious with high-tech equipment.

Clean and spacious rooms.

The rooms have been described as very well-presented and clean much to the satisfaction of many guests. The spacious accommodation was appreciated by guests who said that they were impressed with the size of their beds as well as ample storage space. Bathrooms were also said to be clean and spacious with modern fixtures and fittings.

Plenty of choice when it comes to food.

Even the fussiest of eaters were able to find something they like on the numerous menus on offer. The formal on-site restaurant offers a fine dining experience whilst those looking for something less formal could enjoy the more laid-back dishes served at the Sports Bar.

Negative Reviews

Poor Wi-Fi signal.

Guests complained about not being able to connect to the internet from their rooms and also experienced connection problems in other areas of the hotel. The signal was said to be very weak and intermittent preventing many guests from accessing the net.

Too many parties at weekends.

The hotel is a popular venue for wedding receptions as well as hen and stag parties. Guests found the premises overcrowded particularly at weekends and objected to the noise levels which prevented many from getting a good night’s sleep.

Lack of air-conditioning.

Many were critical of the fact that a 4-star establishment did not have air-conditioning units forcing guests to request fans during the warmer summer months in order to cool down their rooms.
