    Lovely historic hotel”

    Not in the heart of Drogheda, but quick walk there-which was ideal. A beautifully restored unique building. Our room was small but memorably furnished with canopy bed. Food was excellent at both dinner and breakfast.

    Restaurant; unfortunately, we couldn't have dinner as it was fully booked on the day we were there
    larger beds, proper check on bathroom accessories, better cleaning, less kitchen smells

    We booked one night here as the final night of our stay in Ireland for a visit to Newgrange and to have a nice dinner in the acclaimed restaurant. The last purpose didn't work as the room was fully booked, and the first purpose worked only half as the tours finished early that day. The hotel looks nice, has a nice front area with terraces etc. but isn't really nicely situated. Our room was next to the kitchen fan, causing noise and smells. Although the fan was switched of shortly after 11 pm, the smells didn't really leave. There was no alternative room available. Sleep wasn't really great anyway, as the beds were rather short. Breakfast was fine in a nicely decorated restaurant, although the choice of buffet items is too small for a place like this. All in all not really pleased. Staff was understanding, lowered the rate but that could not take away the sense of disappointment

    gute Lage”

    Kleines Zimmer und kleines Bad, aber mit allem ausgestattet, was zum guten Hotel gehört. Vom Fenster schöner Blick auf die Stadt, die man zu Fuß in 5 Minuten erreicht. Wichtig ist auch der eigene abgeschlossene Parkplatz. Sehr gutes Frühstück, sogar mit frischen Erdbeeren und Himbeeren.
