Have just returned from a most pleasant visit to this hotel. Whilst this may be rated in some circles as a 3 star hotel, in reality in terms of comfort,price,friendliness and excellent accomodation it merits at least a 4..

Excellent rooms, well maintained, there's a breakfast to suit all tastes, while the lunchtime and evening the menus in the bar are reasonably priced, have a good selection across the range, and can be washed down with a good choice of beers, ales and anything else your palate desires

A weekend away for past pupils of Ard Lughaidh. We got together for chatting, eating, drinking (some more than others, you know who you are!) and our stay in adjoining rooms in the Skylon was perfect. Lovely hotel and very close to town.
