                          I like that the rooms were very clean

                          Wat i didnt like was that th traffic was very noisy wer our room was situated and the rooms were very warm

                          Breakfast

                          The bathroom was small and dirty. An air conditioning unit on the roof outside the bedroom ran all night and the extractor fan in ajoining bathrooms could be heard through the wall.

                          We were attending a party nearby. Great location. Met friends in Chilli banana restaurant straight across the road after a drink in the very nice bar. Food looked lovely in the bar and there were a good number of people eating there. Very central location with easy access and parking.

                          While the reception and bar of the hotel were fresh and clean and the staff were both friendly and efficient, when we walked into our room the smell of stale smoke was very strong. We were facing onto the road and the windows were not sound proof. The bed linen and bathroom towels were spotless, but the room and carpet were tired and needed to be ripped out in my opinion.

                          Price, location

                          I like informal continental style breakfasts in foyer without fuss at reasonable price included in rate so this could be changed

                          lovely bar and lounge area.

                          en suite facilities very poor cleanliness. bath needed to be cleaned, very grimey with human hairs still clinging to the side. would not entice to use.

                          Location

                          Paying €5 for parking (per car)is a bit tight on the hotel's behalf. You also have to pay at reception and then go back to your car to display your ticket Very small rooms

                          Every thing about our stay was perfect the hotel was in a great location lovely room and everything we needed for our weekend stay. Bar staff were friendly and saved the day when I lost my purse – will defiantly come again great value for money.

                          The staff was very friendly, the rooms clean, nice and roomy. Nice bar with live music for a nightcap, or two, or three :-) Location was good for bus transportation into the city center. Location was good for walking to Budget Car Rental if you've booked a car there. Breakfast was in comparison to other Hotels we stayed in on our trip was lacking. We cancelled breakfast on our return trip to Skylon Hotel. Breakfast across the street at the Cheese Factory was excellent.

                          Booking in and out the hotel was no hassle, room was spacious and clean, friendly staff and good price for a night. Near the centre but at the same time quite location, we had a good night sleep.

                          Parking is having a weird layout and is a bit crampy, plus you have to pay 5€ a day, however 5€ is a fair price considering that you are quite close to the centre.

                          stayed in one of the older rooms at rear of hotel they are a little tired looking now, but we had a real bargain price, and it had no negative impact on our great stay.

                          Musty room and lumpy beds. Room also smelled like smoke when all rooms are labelled non-smoking.
