Liked: Cleanliness, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
We had a lovely stay in the Western, the room was very clean and comfortable and the staff at reception were very kind and friendly, however we were refused entry into the residents lounge which we were not too impressed about. It was early in the night and the girl working in the bar was quite unaproachable

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
I was slightly disappointed ; the location was great and the reception staff and breakfast staff and food were very good and breakfast was very good also the parking manager was very efficient but I appreciate under the present circumstances of COVID 19 the staff were under pressure with the strict rules,but we wanted to have a snack and spend some time in the lounge on one of the nights as it was raining & I felt the communication was bad as we were prepared together food to the value of nine euro and sit in and have a drink but were abruptly told (no you must have a full meal)we were not hungry enough for a full meal so we had to go back to our room- the linens were not changed and no housekeep done apparently we would have had to request this because of COVID so over all I was disappointed with our stay
