First impressions on arrival was beautiful clean and welcoming hotel staff were very friendly and helpful. Room was so comfortable and warm and most importantly clean. Location was ideal for city centre close to Henry Street and Connolly Station. I would definitely go back again. Thank you for a very pleasant stay.
