Average stay
We had to ask to change room as in ours the heating was not working. We were surprised we had to insist as to them the solution was a smelly electrical heater. I think the hotel is in a good location. And def a three star not a 4 star

Temple not rising yo 4 star standard
Hotel was nice good lication, staff across the board were not unpleasant could seriously do with course of being friendly and welcoming. Reception staff gave off the air of they did not want ti be there, morning and midday. Buffee breakfast display was that if a 2 star. Tinned friut, and rhe usual stuff. Done in the cheap. Overall hotel was comfortable and clean but gave the impression tbat it was been run on a minibudget. Should be 3 star status. Has pitential.

Would definitely stay here again
A very nice hotel, centrally located so it was easy to walk around town. We had some trouble finding the hotel initially as downtown Ennis is a little challenging to navigate by car the first time through. In the end, we were very happy with our choice and would stay here again. I wish we had planned for more than 2 nights because we really enjoyed Ennis. The only negative was that our room was on the front side of the hotel where the buses and supply trucks came and went, so it was pretty noisy early in the morning.

Fair 4.0
2 star maybe
Amazing location for sure and the common areas of this hotel are beautiful. I'm not sure about all of the rooms but I had a double occupancy and it was terrible. First of all, the hotel doesn't have air conditioning.I've literally never stayed in hotel anywhere in the world that didn't have air conditioning. Until now. Normally this wouldn't really be an issue in Ireland in October because it's pretty chilly, but when we entered the room it was super stuffy and slightly damp. It was also pouring rain so opening the window just lets more moisture in. Really needed air conditioning or minimally a dehumidifier. Also, being on the first floor and right on the entry way , there was a lot of people walking right by our window so we had to keep the drapes closed which prevented any Breeze from coming in. I asked if there was any rooms on higher floors but was told no. I was also given a fan after asking for one twice, so that made the room at least bearable. As for the room itself, very shabby. More like a 2 star hotel. Definitely not a four-star. The pillows were extremely hard, one of the beds had what looked like a urine stain on the duvet cover. It didn't smell so we didn't bother complaining about it. Didn't think we get anything much better. The furniture was cheap looking and spartan. The bathroom had irregular water temperature. It would go from too hot to not hot enou during a shower. Overall, a great location but I wouldn't stay here again until they renovated. Too $$
