Very friendly staff, well equipped SPA, the dinner menu is simply but superbly done. The breakfast is nice, I would suggest for the hotel to invest in one of those machines for the customer to get their own freshly served coffee/tea instead of waiting to be served. I would also suggest for the hotel to improve the billing to the room so that the customer can include a tip to be added to the bill.

Excellent stay in the Pillo Hotel!!! Great room, food and leisure facilities!!! Perfect location too, couldn't recommend it more!!!

by Anne on Oct 10 2017 10:41

Lovely hotel, air conditioning in rooms, fridge and a drinks machine at the end of corridor, only disadvantage no cash machine in hotel or cash back so couldn't use card for cash.

by davidandclann on Oct 1 2017 22:33

checkin quick and efficient parking secure -free lots on site room - good size -well finished-over hot at night -probably due to large glazed walls and solar gain dinner - food and service top class could not fault- well done to dining -kitchen staff breakfast- good standard pool- excellent we enjoyed using it if getting similar value will visit again

by Nora on Sep 28 2017 16:30

Excellent hotel and great value. Breakfast buffet very good. Room well decorated and clean. Staff very friendly and helpful. I will definitely stay here again.

by Hotel Visitor 24 on Sep 25 2017 13:52

Staff at the bar very nice, the bar food was amazing. Highly recommend the chicken wings (some of the nicest ever tested and Bruschetta was again amazing. Pool was really nice but would suggest the Hotel might sell a swimming hat for €1 rather than the € 2.50 they were looking for. The breakfast was absolutely beautiful could recommend it enough as they seem to cater for everyone's taste. If you like a full Irish you want be disappointed if you like cereal and fruit and croissants again you want be disappointed. Had Fillet steak in the Restaurant done to perfection. For a short break in a nice hotel definitely recommend.

by GR123 on Sep 25 2017 13:08

Such a lovely hotel. The swimming pool was so nice. The room was a bit hot at night but I think every hotel is the same.Perfect for families and so close to everything.

by Nickynoo on Sep 11 2017 09:37

We stayed two nights in this hotel. Reception staff was very friendly and helpful, room was fab, bed was very comfortable and pool facilities were good. Secure car parking in operation. Bar is okay. On the first night, I was given the wrong starters (soup), waiting staff offered a free desert. Breakfast was not the best Irish breakfast I've had. I would stay in this hotel again but would not dine in the restaurant or avail of the breakfast deal.

by eaglejohn on Jul 10 2017 20:40

Lovely hotel, clean and comfortable. Good friendly efficient staff. Food good. Great "Buzz" about this hotel, plenty of young visitors who created a lovely atmosphere. The only negative was that our room looked out on the bin area at the rear of the hotel which did not lend to great viewing and we were awoke as expected with the noise early next morning. I did not ask for a change which may have been forth coming had I asked. Apart from this every thing was great and I will have no problem revisiting this hotel, but I will ask to get a more suitable room location.

by Brian on Jun 13 2017 10:47

Great hotel close to Tayto park

by Bonnie on May 22 2017 10:44

Comfortable large family room with a super large TV the kids loved... they will run a kids club if there are 5 or more kids around. Breakfast was good. Friendly helpful staff not in your face.

by Donna on Feb 28 2017 16:44

We has a very disappointing stay at the Pillo we weren't aware they were under refurbishment & the service was poor, the temporary bar and restaurant was unsatisfactory & it was very noisy with the work going on. I had stayed here before & thought it was really lovely but this time due to the refurbishment it was a disaster.

by Barbara on Feb 28 2017 09:38

Lovely Hotel just back from a one night break over the midterm. Everything you could ask for. We stayed in Family room for four and it was very spacious, lovely comfortable beds slept like a log never heard a sound all night. They are currently refurbishing their bar/restaurant area so for that I left out a star but they did give me plenty of notice about this in advance of my stay. Breakfast was lovely, plenty of choice. Staff were very helpful and welcoming. Keep up the good work. Thank you. P.S Fabulous Pool/Steam Room (though Sauna wasn't very warm)

by Sinead on Feb 7 2017 10:51

Hotel is lovely, room was spacious & bed very comfortable. Staff all friendly. Restaurant was disappointing. Service slow & both main courses were overcooked. Pool & changing facilities were spotless & lifeguard also on duty. Overall the break was good value for money but if going again I would leave out the meal & head into Ashbourne instead.

by Brian connolly on Jan 31 2017 18:28

We had a lovely stay.room was comfortable and warm.beds were excellent.rooms were very clean.breakfast was lovely.2nd time staying there and will be back.plenty of parking space and enjoyed our meal in ashbourne with plenty of restaurants to choose from.would highly recommend to anyone for a night away.

by Cleo on Jan 3 2017 12:00

Bedroom was lovely - spacious and tastefully decorated to 4* standard. However windows were screwed shut so room was airless and overheated. Reception very accommodating about our requirements but did not ask if we were happy with our stay when leaving. Restaurant was more 3*, like a canteen really. Both starters and main courses really good but dessert fell flat on its face. Breakfast was not 4* standard - too buffet style and plates were cold so food lost its heat quickly. Nothing much to do in the area as Ashbourne has little to offer.

Great value for money.Friendly staff.

by rose on Dec 2 2016 20:31

Staff nice, location great, food was fabulous in the restaurant and breakfast served a good choice of all you can think of to eat. Only let down was getting a massage, its next to a gym where they constantly drop weights so its not that relaxing, i got a 20% discount but i would not recommend getting a message in this hotel, although no fault of the girl giving it.

by Rachel O'Donohue on Nov 29 2016 12:34

WE stayed in your hotel on Friday night. The rooms were spotless and i could not fault the accommodation or the reception. However, you were let down by your food service. We had not reserved a table in the restaurant and therefore had to eat in the bar area. I understand the hotel was very busy on this evening and i am well aware that service can be slow under the circumstances. There seemed to be plenty of staff but there was no "service" as such. I stood at the bar to order a drink and my presence was not acknowledged by either of the bar staff or the manager. Never at any time did he say, someone will be with you shortly or even give me some eye contact to acknowledge that I was there. It took 15 minutes to order a drink. The staff passed in and out by us and did not clear our table for 25 minutes after we had finished. The kids got fed up waiting to order dessert. Overall the experience was good but some major training needs to be done with the dinner/bar service. Breakfast was perfect. Overall I would return but I just wanted to make you aware that there are areas which need improving.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the pillo...the room was clean and spacious with a nice view...staff were warm and friendly...especially the restaraunt manager and the food was excellent! We will definitely return!

by ninjo on Oct 6 2016 13:34

Very nice hotel, modern and clean. easy to find. The only issue would be not much to walk to around the hotel. wasnt a problem for us.

by Deena on Oct 5 2016 16:36

Lovely hotel, great food and friendly staff. However the bedroom was not great - we were on the 5th floor and give a disabled bathroom so we had no bath. The room had a door to the next room through which we could hear the other occupants talking most of the night.

by dandclann on Sep 28 2016 18:23

Comfortable modern hotel room - comfortable for a family of 2+2 Some minor maintenance issues in bathroom parking free on site breakfast quality and service - good standard bar food quality and service good standard leisure centre above average for similar hotels

by Aija on Sep 26 2016 12:25

Very nice hotel ,friendly staff , fabulous room and comfy bed!

by Claire on Sep 20 2016 10:34

Good experience checking in & out. Friendly, professional staff. Room was lovely (Family room on 4th floor). Took the kids swimming & couldn't fault the changing/pool area (towels are supplied). Ate in the bar that evening, food was good. Staff were a little slow in taking our order & we had to ask for our drinks order but once they took the order the food was quite fast to come out. No noise at night (it was a Friday night). The breakfast was fantastic .... couldn't ask for more. Have stayed before and would definitely stay again, great value.

Decent hotel, I enjoyed my stay. Just little noisy for a light sleeper like me on front facade with traffic as busy road nearby, but I am sure its fine on other facades. They could do with planting a few leylandii near t road to kill passing cars/Trucks sound. For everything else nice hotel, although it needs a tiny bit of TLC for very small maintenance details. Its quite close to Taytopark. Literally less than 10 mins drive.

by Paula Boyle on Sep 1 2016 12:11

Had an overnight stay here after visiting Tayto Park. Very convenient to the park less than 10 mins drive. Lovely friendly welcome at reception. Beautiful spacious room. The Air-con didn't seem to be working so I rung reception who sent maintenance immediately, who agreed it wasn't working to full capacity, and arranged for our room to be changed straight away. No delays. Meal in the bar was very tasty, with great choice and very reasonable, as was our breakfast the next day. Upon arrival home, we realized we'd forgotten our toiletry bag, which contained lots of mine & my daughters makeup. Rung the hotel, who had kept it for us and agreed to post it out. I will definetly be returning to this hotel, and will be highly recommending it to my friends & family. Keep up the good work Pillo Hotel. x

by Paul on Sep 1 2016 11:34

Super Location..For Tayto Park Was pleasantly suprised to find that the Pillo Hotel was situated so close after our vist to Tayto Park..it's 5 mins max. drive and you cant miss it..located just of the motorway,The Hotel itself is large,modern with super friendly staff, The leisure centre looked great,just didnt have time to use it !...Highly recommended.

by Michelle on Jun 10 2016 12:15

Fantastic hotel for a family break - we would even come here without the kids for a break away too as theres lots to do and some lovely restaurants in nearby Ashbourne. Highly recommend, we had a great time! :) Especially the pool - so fab!

by luke on May 8 2016 14:03

Good. Modern. Clean. High standards. But very standard(ised). You could probably encounter a similar feel in many similar off-motorway hotels around the World...

by Lauren Byrne on May 2 2016 10:00

Brilliant staff very friendly and helpful

by ann on Mar 12 2016 18:50

Went there last weekend for mothers day and i couldnt fault it .Rooms are spotless ,breakfast has everything you could want on offer .Swimming pool and spa available .Food in restaurant is to die for .Will definitely go back

by Patricia on Feb 25 2016 08:20

The bed in the room was broken and the cooked breakfast was very disappointing. The only thing enjoyable about our stay was the swimming pool for the children.

by Ireland on Feb 23 2016 13:23

Fantastic spotless clean comfy beds great shower brilliant swimming pool and food was excellent

by Sarah on Jan 5 2016 11:06

Enjoyed break but bit chaotic when we arrived on new years day - pool was really cold as they had problems with boiler but had improved by Sunday. Tv in bedroom was hard to get working and had to get help twice with same - had to look for extra pillows as well - food was nice in bar but very busy and I thought expensive for what we got - restaurant menu definitely offered better value - overall it's in a great location staff were very friendly and we would probably go back
