Excellent hotel in a quiet location
Posted 27-Nov-2016 on Hotels
We chose the ardilaun Initially because of its price, compared to other 4 star hotels it was good value for money. It's a 30 minute walk to the city centre which is OK if the weather is good. 10 euro for the taxi back (rip off) The ardilaun has beautiful gardens and plenty of free parking. The hotel itself although a bit dated has a spacious lobby. The staff were very helpful and friendly. The leisure facilities were excellent with good size pool, steam room and jacuzzi. One gripe I had was the girl in the leisure centre told me if I was using the steam room or jacuzzi, I would need a cap And was going to charge me for one.!!! I used the facilities and seen loads of people without a swimming cap.!
The breakfast was excellent and the staff were friendly and helpful.
We requested a top floor quite room and we got a good one, the only thing we didn't like about the room was a very strong smell of fresh paint.
All in all its a good hotel with a competitive price and quality leisure facilities
