Positive Reviews

This Is What You Call A Real Breakfast

The breakfast is to die for. Smoked salmon and eggs, deliciously baked homemade dark bread, baked potatoes with a variety of fillings to choose from, a choice of cereals, beverages, and there's a carvery every Sunday.

Great Atmosphere And They Like Kids!

The hotel is actually child friendly. Don't be surprised to find staff members helping and interacting with the children. With such a congenial staff, you feel very welcomed and at ease.

Location Is A Plus

The location is good with a variety shops close to the facility and a few pubs. There is plenty to do and an abundant countryside adds to the relaxed climate. There is Callow Lakes, Meelick Tower, and Foxford Woolen Mills, and you can go fishing on the Moy River.

Negative Reviews

It's The Bar

Music from the bar can get noisy at times making sleep nearly impossible. Of course, if you are one of those who can sleep through a lot of noise, you will sleep like a baby. If your room is overlooking the main street, it can get noisy late at night as well. By the way, it seems that the Wi-Fi does not work well too far from the bar area.

Pay More Attention To Detail

You may find your room needs a bit more cleaning in spots like in back of the bathroom door, hair in the shower, and smudges on the walls. The décor is nice; however, paying more attention to detail could really improve it.

Multi-Tasking Chaos

Though the staff is attentive, it seems they have to multi-task quite a bit and things can get somewhat chaotic.
