Positive Reviews

Good range of on-site facilities.

Guests were pleased to find that there was plenty for them to do at the hotel during their spare time. Many visited the leisure centre where they could have a swim in the pool or a relaxing dip in the Jacuzzi. The spa facilities have been described as clean and spacious and those who had massages or facials said that they thoroughly enjoyed their treatment.

Convenient location.

Those who wanted to visit Dublin as well as some of the many attractions such as Tayto Park found the hotel’s location extremely convenient. The town centre of Ashbourne with its many shops and restaurants is only a short drive away whilst the hotel is also close to the main motorway.

Child-friendly hotel.

There are lots of organised activities for children including a kids club and a kids’ disco which many parents found very convenient. Those travelling with young children felt extremely well looked after and said that they would gladly return.

Negative Reviews

Dated communal areas.

Some guests said that the hotel’s communal rooms including the lounge and the bar were looking rather tired and dated and were in need of modernisation. Tatty looking upholstery and worn carpets were just some of the issues raised by the disappointed guests.

Noisy parties.

Loud music and noise from the function rooms which often went on until the early hours prevented some guests from getting a good night’s sleep. Guests whose rooms were closest to the bar and the disco seemed to be the worst affected.

Issues with the bar.

The bar has been described as small and cramped with not enough seating which made some guests reluctant to spend much time there. Guests also observed that the bar was often very busy but that there was only one member of staff serving.
