I Think "Mixed" is the Best Word to Describe Them

Reviews for the Bettystown Court Hotel on Trip Advisor.

Dreadful room, hairs on toilet and bath and walls and windows filthy when we arrived.Housekeeping terrible, two towels for four people.Food poor quality, service poor and attitude on reception a disgrace.Then they tried to over charge us by nearly 100 euro wih no apology for their mistake.All in all a complete waste of money. I intend to contact the irish tourist board to find out how this hotel was ever granted 4 stars?.

one positive was the pool and staff in the leisure centre.

Oh dear. I hope you got your money back.

We stayed in Bettystown over the Easter period and had a great time, the hotel was packed with people staying for the same reason but we didn't have any problems what so ever!!

Room was big with a double bed and 2 singles and also clean which is the main thing, we had a bar snack the first night in the hotel bar which was lovely and we had booked into the restaurant the second night. Breakfast was super all you could want from cereal, fry, fruit, all the juices..................... Brillant selection!! The pool is also great we spent most of the second day in it as it rained and we couldn't go to the beach.

Also you are only a couple of mins walk from the beach and Funtasia which children will love all in all we had a very relaxing time in the Bettystown Court.

Well that doesn't sound so bad. Maybe I'll get a third opinion . . .

While the room was nice we were alarmed to find a piece of broken glass on the carpet in the middle of the floor where we could have easily stepped on it. When we complained they suggested we ourselves had brought it in on our shoes!

The dining room was full of stained upholstery and faded lacklustre ambience. Breakfasts were a bun fight due to what appeared to be a largecouch party of old age pensioners.

Although parts of the breakfast were OK , the porridge was disgusting and the whole experience was very offputting like being in a horrible cut-price works canteen.

And 44 others of the same ilk to help you ponder the virtues of staycationing.
