    The room was very big and looked great and it was very quiet and comfortable. I would certainly stay at the Shandon bells again.

    I cannot think of one reason i did not like my stay at the Shandon bells.

    My sister and I had a twin room, on the third floor. Very comfortable, warm, actually the room was so hot we switched the heating off for a while. Was nice to be able to make tea & coffee in the room. Was just a 20 minute walk to the city, we walked in and found a pub for our evening meal. Parking facilities on site were great, we arrived around 6pm and there was plenty of on site parking.

    A charging point for each bed would be better, though there was one by the floor to the shower room

    Staff are really nice!

    Stayed on a room for single person. A bit small. And gets a little noisy at night.
