Thank you for your review! we hope to welcome you back soon!

5 out of 5
This is a great property in a great location. Plenty of pubs and restaurants all around. The highlight of this hotel is the amazing HUGE bar and sitting area. Two stories of little seating areas with a fun bar to get your pints from. Anything walking distance from Sean's Pub is a great place to be. Free parking helps too.
