A Great Nights Sleep and Stay
A great place to stay if you are a tourist. We drove in from Dublin and were thankful the hotel had a garage. Our room was spacious for a family of three. The room was quiet and the beds were comfortable. The hotel is in a great location and it's an easy walk to the main square and shops. The hotel has a nice bar and we stopped by for a drink. Overall, it was a wonderful place to stay.

Nice hotel, small room
The hotel location is excellent and the staff are very hospitable and helpful. The room was extremely small, however. The images on the listing are a bit misleading. There was, in fact, no space for opening our luggage, except on the bed. Other than that, the hotel was nice.

8/10 Very Good

This is a nice hotel, is near places you can walk to and the room itself was very spacious. We tried having breakfast the morning we were there but no one came out to help us (it was empty). That’s ok, we ended up at a cafe down the street and had the best coffee and breakfast. The hotel does not have air conditioning. I knew this when I booked it, but I thought the weather would be cooler. It happened to be the hottest day we were there. We resolved this by sleeping with the windows open and it helped a lot. However, there were people talking outside around 11:30 pm and their voices carried loudly, and all night there were birds waking us up.
