We stayed here this month, while visiting our son and new grandchildren. We found this motel very reasonably priced after staying the first night in an overpriced and over rated apartment in the city. The rooms were spacious and clean, staff were very friendly, and we did not expect breakfast supplied, bread for toast, cereal and yoghurt. The pool area...

I recently stayed at the Shamrock for a wedding. The room was spacious and had everything you needed including a balcony. The food at the pub was absolutely amazing and the reception which was held there was perfect! However what would make me return was the staff at the hotel. One lady in particular made us feel more than comfortable...

We stayed overnight to attend a family wedding at the hotel next door. Rooms were spacious, clean and functional. Bathroom was roomy and spotless and the soaps and shampoos were nice and smelled lovely. The complementary breakfast of bread and spreads, yogurt, juice, tea and coffee was fine and enough for two people. The staff were friendly and helpful. The...
