Lovely central hotel if you need to be in Ennis. Wi-fi is really bad and that is a shame as it would put me off staying in that hotel again.

We stayed here on last Saturday and Sunday nights. Extremely busy at reception when we arrived but the lovely lady working handled everything super efficiently and put a smile on our faces with her quips. Room was superb, spotlessly clean. Hotel is perfectly located literally less than a minutes walk from the centre of the town. I would argue that it must be the best located hotel in Ennis. The breakfast both mornings was excellent and we had dinner in Legends Restaurant on the Sunday evening which was superb (the complimentary pre meal savoury scones are a must!). Compliments to the waiting staff who had the patience of a saint to deal with a particularly fussy patron who was sitting at the next table to us as I would not have had the same patience. Had a few pints in the bar on Sunday night which again is an extremely relaxing and laid back setting. Just what the doctor ordered. This was our second time staying at the hotel and again it was fabulous. We will definitely be back. If I was to be picky the only thing I would or could say is that if you are unfamiliar with the hotel you may find it slightly awkward to find so get your directions or sat nav sorted. Once found though you will never forget it for all the right reasons. No complaints again here though. Thanks for a great weekend, room 213...!

Just back from great weekend in Ennis in the Temple gate hotel, staff were friendly & accommodating. The hotel is very central, had dinner & breakfast in the restaurant both of which were yummy & service was prompt & attentive. Ennis is a lively town with pleny of restaurnts/bar & things to do , would recommend it for weekend away :)

Found the hotel clean and staff were very friendly

Ciara scored 5 / 5 on 25/06/2014

I will keep this brief: parking was free and excellent location only a short walk to the hotel. Staff very pleasant. Food: we ate in the restaurant as we had a 2 course meal included in our deal. The menu was limited and lacked in vegetarian options however we were given the option of choosing a vegetarian option from the bar menu which had a couple of vegetarian options. We were in room 404 which had rather a bleak view of half a yard and the roof of the building! If I was to return again, I would definitely avoid this room. WIFI: was not consistent so could not be relied upon. In essence, this is a lovely hotel, great location, Dunnes Stores near by, food good but menu limited and do not stay in room 404.

Lovely hotel. So glad we chose it. Just a short walk into Ennis town centre. Lovely food and staff. Very handy for visiting the Burren. Would love to come back again.

Eileen scored 2 / 5 on 20/03/2014

We stayed her many times and were always very pleased wit this hotel, however this time we found it to be most unsatisfactory !We checked in here last sunday night !! My husband and I had meal in the bar which was ok ! Travelers entered the bar and were getting loud , so we moved to the other end ! They then got served and moved to the table next to us , during this time , their partners/wives had entered the bar also and the children were running all round the bar and on the seats! Unbelievable they were ,and the mothers shouting at the top of their voices! Not alone us but everybody else in the bar appeared very uncomfortable, not what you would expect in a recently upgraded 4 star hotel!! Overall we didnt enjoy what was supposed to have been a nice night away in a lovely hotel !!!!!

Aileen scored 3 / 5 on 19/01/2014

They didnt ask if we wanted smoking or non smoking before allocating room. Manager was a bit abrupt but receptionists were nice. Food good all round. Nice bar to have a pint in.Very central but really suitable for one night.

Pete scored 4 / 5 on 08/05/2013

My husband & I stayed here one night & absolutely loved this hotel - disappointed we couldn't stay longer. Beautifully furnished, friendly & helpful staff, breakfast was excellent. The only down side was we had stayed in a room on the ground floor which is non-smoking, but the people in the room next door were smoking - not sure why they didn't ask for a smoking room!!
