    location is great , freindly staff,

    i think for a 3 star its very dated , all the way through , except for bar & leisure center it needs a facelift.didnt like the shower , it was so close to wall i actually had to put by back to wall to wash my hair. no individual bottles of shower gel /shampoo , just a dispenser with some horrible gunge in it! make sure to take your own ! overall 5 out of ten

    Superb

    Really enjoyed my stay at the hotel and staff were very friendly and helpful.As it was a family trip and we had kids with us it was excellent as there was games room and pool to entertain the kids and music in the bar at night .

    Food wasn,t the greatest in the hotel .We had a meal on the Friday night and wasnt great and breakfast wasn,t the greatest either.We ended up going to Shelbys restaurant the second night which was value for money as the food was excellent. Rooms were extremely warm by night also as there was no air con.

    The hotel was generally comfortable and the service was always good and the people very polite and friendly. The room was quite spacious and comfortable

    Some of the decor and carpeting is looking a little tired and ready for an update. The breakfast was quite poor with little cooked choice and some of the food not very good. eg. scrambled eggs were very hard one day and the next day very runny, the bacon was very tough seemed to have cooked a long time

    Location Excellent, Reception staff excellent. Food was lovely in the bar and good value.

    I have stayed many times in the Royal and always enjoyed it. The room this time although comfortable, was a little cold and musty. The cleaning staff knocked on the door three times before twelve (once before 11am) and walked in, this never happened before. But of previous experience I would still recommend it.

    Staff were friendly, Leisure centre was good

    There is a serious lack of cleanliness throughout the hotel - a good vacuum cleaner should be purchased. I did ask my room to be vacuumed & it was, unfortunately the hoover ws not very good. Breakfast could have been hotter.

    The staff at the front desk were very well presented, polite and helpful. I liked the atmosphere in general and the swimming pool is really handy.

    The carpark fee was a bit of a surprise. We stayed 3 days & unexpectedly had to pay another €15 on arrival. Also the lights outside the hotel, lighting the building up at night shone through the curtains very brightly.
