Paddy scored 5 / 5 on 06/02/2020

excellent hotel lovely food and very friendly staff great breakfast we will be staying here again only 2 small things maybe a bottle of water in rooms and some shampoo and soap in pool area showers other than that excellent


Middle scored 5 / 5 on 24/07/2019

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.

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


Nora scored 5 / 5 on 28/09/2017

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.


Hotel scored 5 / 5 on 25/09/2017

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.


Gr123 scored 5 / 5 on 25/09/2017

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.


Nickynoo scored 4 / 5 on 11/09/2017

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.


Eaglejohn scored 4 / 5 on 10/07/2017

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.


Brian scored 5 / 5 on 13/06/2017

Great hotel close to Tayto park


Bonnie scored 5 / 5 on 22/05/2017

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.


Donna scored 1 / 5 on 28/02/2017

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.


Barbara scored 4 / 5 on 28/02/2017

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)


Sinead scored 4 / 5 on 07/02/2017

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.


Susan scored 3 / 5 on 06/02/2017

Rooms are lovely unfortunately our main course for dinner was not good. 3 of us ordered lamb but could not eat it as so tough.. sent it back and got 3 fresh ones but still the same.. lovely Manager organised a free drink which was nice. Ordered breakfast to room and had to pay the lad there and then which we found to be odd as usually pay on checkout.. had to pay upfront also on check-in which personally I have never had to do before so found all of this a bit odd. Breakfast was ok could have been hotter.. Our room mates next door went down for breakfast said it was not great either not hot enough. and housekeeping knocked on their door twice to see what time they were checking out at? So all in all this is the first bad lidl break food wise we have had.. I wouldnt be rushing back to the Pillo.


Brian scored 5 / 5 on 31/01/2017

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.


Cleo scored 3 / 5 on 03/01/2017

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.


Sj scored 4 / 5 on 30/12/2016

Great value for money.Friendly staff.


Rose scored 4 / 5 on 02/12/2016

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.


Rachel scored 3 / 5 on 29/11/2016

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.

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.


Deena scored 3 / 5 on 05/10/2016

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.

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.


Cathy scored 3 / 5 on 19/09/2016

Lovely big modern room and very clean. Food on the LIDL Breaks menu not the best though. Small helpings. My hake seemed to be reheated and was very small. Lamb main course also very small. Lovely friendly staff.

Gazza scored 4 / 5 on 04/09/2016

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.


Paula scored 5 / 5 on 01/09/2016

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

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.


Michelle scored 5 / 5 on 10/06/2016

Greg scored 3 / 5 on 12/04/2016

This used to be a Marriott hotel and since our last stay the decline has been noticeable. The rooms remain large and comfortable though the bed mattress was noticeablely coily. The room service food was delivered uncovered which made no sense. steak was cold and overcooked. The couches in the bar are very uncomfortable and need to be replaced. Breakfast was good and the staff are all very pleasant and professional. There's a lot to do around ashbourne, so the location is definitely worth a visit, but perhaps consider another hotel.


Ann scored 5 / 5 on 12/03/2016

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

Jr scored 3 / 5 on 01/12/2015

We had a nice stay, i thought the hotel was lovely, very clean and the room was very nice with all you need. However the menu in the restaurant was different and much more limiting than what was shown on the hotel's website. This was very disappointing, and misleading on the part of the hotel. They need to update their website to reflect what is being served in the restaurant, as people will only expect what is shown on their website, otherwise there is no point in having a sample menu.


Jen scored 3 / 5 on 24/11/2015

Hotel was fine but not up to four star standard! Nice pool, average bedrooms, decent breakfast. Lady who checked us in was extremely rude as she had difficulty locating our booking and told us we should not have been allowed to book the hotel the day before staying as if it was our fault!


Noeleen scored 1 / 5 on 17/11/2015

Lovely clean spacious rooms, entertainment in the bar on Saturday night was excellent. Food was ok, chicken wings were only barely warm and there was no lamb left. All staff very helpful. Showers in leisure centre were cold so went back to room


Carol scored 3 / 5 on 11/11/2015

Paid in full on arrival, but we were not offered "room credit" which you have to have to order food/ drink & were refused service because I had left my purse in the room, or even have your breakfast brought to the room. We ordered breakfast to the room but had to pay €8 to the waiter at the door which we've normally paid anywhere else at checkout. Just thought it was very strange for a 4* hotel. Other than that a lovely place.


Brian scored 1 / 5 on 09/11/2015

Beautiful hotel. We strayed on Friday night (6-11-15) and was disappointed to find there was no entertainment. We got a taxi into Ashbourne to The Ashbourne House Hotel which was a 5 min drive. There was fabulous entertainment there. Swimming pool / jacuzzi were great. Now the worst part: We decided to order breakfast in bed and payed the supplement of €8. The breakfast arrived bang on 10am as we ordered but was probably sitting on the tray since 8am. It was absolutely stone cold and like rubber. even the tea was cold..the chap that delivered it even had the cheek to tell me to watch it as it was very hot..This tainted what was an enjoyable night..

For lunch Ordered two toasted sandwiches had to send back as they were not toasted. Chips were cold and had to send them back. Sauna was out of order in leisure centre. Confusion at breakfast as to whether we were on b&b rate or not, they were going to charge €20 to the bill for breakfast until I pointed out was on b&b rate.

Edel scored 3 / 5 on 04/03/2014

We were a group of 11 in total and stayed 2 nights, overall our experience of this hotel was good. The rooms are large and have most things you need, although our room did not get refreshed and when this was mentioned at reception we just got a shrug and ok I'll check that - no apology... We had dinner included in our package and a few of us ordered the steak with is €6 extra, the steak itself was tough and all we got with it was skinny chips (like you would get in McDonalds), no vegetables or mushrooms/onions etc. We mentioned this to the waiter and we saw him say it to the manager, but nothing was done about it, nor did the manager come over to us to discuss same. We then mentioned this at reception where the on duty manager offered us a voucher for the hotel for the total cost of €24 to be used at another time - I think a more flexible approach should have been applied, i.e. send over a bottle of wine to our table or offer a round of drinks, very simple solution, but this was not offered - a pity as this is why the review is not marked down for this hotel. I have to mention we have stayed here before and had a great time, so hopefully comments will be taken on board to improve customer satisfaction.


Roisin scored 2 / 5 on 07/02/2014

the positives were the room was comfy the shower was gorgeous. The pool was nice but full of kids whcih cant be helped and the changing rooms could have been cleaner. The bar food was lovely but the service was dreadful my husband had to ask three times for menus and when we eventually got our food the lady who appeared to be in charge told us sorry its late but it was so busy in a tone that implied we were just causing trouble to her!!!! The restaurant was lovely and staff were lovely. The spa I would not recommend at all overpriced for really poor facilities. The relaxation room was so poor cheap fittings, cold, with luke ward tap water to drink,. I had a luxury???? pedicure 70 euro which I was really looking foward to. water for foot soak was cold. their was a fitness class going on next door so all you could hear was shouting and loud music. the girl that did the treatment was nice but looked exhausted which made me feel guilty. When I was left to relax??? 2 girls came barging in twice without aknowleding my existance sloshed water into a basin and an bubble bath??? not the relaxing oils promised and dragged it off to some other unfortunate.

Absolutely shall be staying again!!! I booked three rooms on Friday 22nd of November for a group of us. All of the rooms were presented impeccably and to a high standard. One of the rooms required two travel cots and having rang to request this, they were set-up upon arrival. The staff in the hotel were very courteous and welcoming. We all dined in the restaurant, which was equally impeccable with a delicious menu. Breakfast was also very enjoyable and we all were very happy with the choice of food on offer. I personally can not wait to stay here again.

Hotel lovely bedroom fab but safe in room not working. When we advised reception they sent up 2 girls from housekeeping who had no idea what the problem was. We got room service but food barely warm when it arrived. Breakfast was not what I expected from a 4 star hotel. Could give more variety and more breads eg rolls homemade brown bread & scones.

Unfortunately, my husband and I did not have a good experience at the Pillo Hotel. Staff called to clean our room at 9.30 a.m., before we had been given our breakfast which we had ordered through room service. As we didn't allow our room to be cleaned at that time, the room was not serviced at all that day. The following day, our breakfast, again ordered through room service, was not delivered to our room. We rang reception and they told us to come to the dining room for our breakfast. When we arrived at the dining room, there was no available tables and a large queue waiting for tables for breakfast. On complaining to staff, they were totally uninterested in what we had to say.

The hotel was fab, food was fantastic, staff were wonderful. But we were totally let down by our room. Room 208 the toilet constantly had water flowing from it, it sounded like a waterfall in our room we couldnt move rooms as we were attending a wedding in the hotel and it was fully booked. It was such a pity as everything else about this hotel is fabulous. We have emailed the Hotel Manager to complain and nearly 2 weeks later he still hasnt replied. So not great customer service. If you dont mind the noise of water running all night in your bathroom, book it.

great hotel for family breaks, with young children. Tayto park just down the road. Blanchardstown shopping centre 15 mins away. best deal to be found. All meals were good. Pool great. Friendly staff. Would definately recommend!

Stayed 2 nights with our two children aged 3&5, we had a great time. The hotel is ideal for families and the staff are really friendly and happy to help and provide information too. The family room is perfect and well kitted out. With bargainbreaks the value for money was exceptional.

The hotel was clean and staff friendly, however we spent a terrible night as the room was extremely hot and the air con did not work neither of my children slept. We would not return to this hotel. Also the breakfast was cold.

Nomad scored 4 / 5 on 20/05/2013

Really fine hotel, smashing pool and gym, lovely dinner and breakfast. Only little crib was the room I was given had a party door, which I specifically requested on booking not to have, and I was told It was not possible to get a different room. Fortunately, the occupants of the other room were family, just as well, as the party door was a good half inch too small for the frame, the lock on one door didn't even reach the receiver, and you could clearly gape through the door gap into the other room when one door was opened. It probably breached fire regs, as the seal didn't come close to the door frame. My tip is always to carry a roll of PVC tape with you if you're given a room with a loose party door. I've endured fag smoke (even in non smoking floors) and other 'sound effects' too often in the past. Pillo, get a carpenter in.


Caroline scored 3 / 5 on 13/05/2013

Great for families. Rooms very good. Bar and Restaurant poor ( Ambience, Service and Layout). Leisure Centre excellent. Maintenance lacking. Reception staff excellent. Bar staff and restaurant staff awful. Lacks mature leadership and trained staff. Too many young untrained staff who either dont care nor are unsure of what they are doing. Parking very good and excellent location. Ideal base for visit to Tayto Park.

Just returned from two night b&B and meal. lovely hotel staff good but not enough of them. rooms are amazing very spacious but food was just ok. No real organisation in the hotel for breakfast or dinner. (could do with a good manager) ). Pool area is lovely, bar lovely, staff lovely. I would return but not for the service in the restaurants :(

just back from a 1 night stay in the pillo hotel ashbourne lovely hotel fab pool great staff only 1 major complaint was at breakfast when a family of 2 adults and 3 children aged between 7 -14 all arrived for breakfast in pyjamas complete with slippers which i found very off putting and very unhygienic , i do not understand how a 4 star hotel can justify this behaveour please management stop this horrible sight as it just makes the hotel like a camp site, this ruined what was a lovely experence at the pillo hotel. 3 star would have been 4 sorry

Hotel was lovely. Very clean and plenty of friendly staff. Pool was lovely (could do with a few more lights though!) Great choice for breakfast, dinner was lovely. Bar wasn't the nicest bar in the world as quite cafe like but did the trick! Bedroom was very nice, big and bright and comfortable and plenty of TV channels.

Berndette scored 5 / 5 on 10/10/2012

hi myself and my husband have stayed in this hotel alot and would highly recommend it, the only problem is the seating in the red bar as its looks comfy but isn,t, also they should consider live entertainment on the weekends, none of what ive just mention would deter me from booking as ive already looking forward to my next stay, the rooms are huge spacious modern and spotless, service second to none, leisure centre is brill, and the food is amazing anyone staying here will not be sorry that they have highly highly recommend it! 5 star rating


Cj scored 3 / 5 on 09/10/2012

Lovely hotel and staff. Enjoyed the stay as it was a good meeting point for my friend and I. We did not like the Red Bar, it does not lend itself to a relaxing environment. The food was good but not outstanding. Lots of children around and some parties going on but our room was quiet and we did not hear any disturbance.


Elaine scored 5 / 5 on 09/10/2012

We had a lovely stay at the Pillo Hotel in Ashbourne, Co Meath. I cannot fault the hotel. The hotel itself was spotless and the staff were friendly and so efficient. We were delighted with the Lidl break deal that we booked our one night stay through. We booked 1 night B&B with voucher for dinner. We had a 2 course dinner in the hotel restaurant. The food was gorgeous. The only thing I found that let the hotel down slightly was the fact that there is no entertainment (music) in the bar at the weekend, but other than that we would definitely stay again and we will definitley book a Lidl break again they are such good value for money.

Stayed for one night recently rooms very comfortable,resturant excellent for dinner and breakfast,staff extremly helpfull and cost of stay great value there was a wedding in the hotel but the hotel still catered for everyone else, the only small comment is that the atmosphere in the bar is a little sterile and the presentation of the cocktails was poor. Would have no hesitation staying again.

Catriona scored 2 / 5 on 31/08/2012

Nice hotel, rooms clean. Bar food is nice, but Restaurant 21 would not be for us. The acoustics in this restaurant are terrible and with the kitchen in the same room its was just loud and we could hear all conversations from the tables. We didn't stick around to eat here so went off down the town for dinner. Breakfast was nice. Staff could do with some cheering up and could crack a smile every now and again. Catriona

Great value and very convenient for Tayto Park. Nice rooms, good breakfast included and the kids club was a bonus too. Also got to have a swim in the health club the following morning. Definitely recommended for a family getaway.


Jen scored 4 / 5 on 24/08/2012

My friend and I really enjoyed our stay there.The room was really nice and very spacious.The staff were very friendly.However there is one major criticism I had;noisy children running around the bar at 11 at night and nothing was done about it.The breakfast was good except for the scrambled eggs.The hotel needs to review its policy on kids in the bar as this will affect business for them


Martina scored 5 / 5 on 20/08/2012

Staff were very welcoming when we arrived,the room was lovely and clean but extremely warm had air conditioning on but didnt seem to be effective at all.The children throughly enjoying the swimming pool.Dinner was lovely except for dessert selection if you didnt like nuts like me you had very little to choose from and the scrambled eggs at breakfast had an awful taste but these overall were very small complaints.Thank you for the stay
