Had a fabulous stay and your Hotel is certainly value for money. I accidentally left a ok behind after checking out and when I contacted your Hotel the lady I spoke with checked lost property and located my notebook and I think she may have gone out of her way to post it to my new hotel in Belfast so that it would reachmeintime before we left for Scotland. I would like to thank her very much. The room was great and breakfast was lovely and we had dinner one night that was delicious. Thank you for a very lovely stay.

Great service on arrival and car park right next to the hotel. Looks like place has been recently refurbed and rooms are very good, and also very clean. Also had dinner in the newly opened Kellys Steak house across the street and it was brilliant. Overall very good experience and would stay again.

Fabulous hotel, triple room very spacious and nice and quiet! Bar could do with a bit of a facelift though! Staff very friendly and welcoming, would definitely return for another visit.

We really enjoyed our stay in your hotel. There were 5 of us so we stayed on the 2nd Floor, room 223 and 224. The decor in the rooms was fabulous and rooms were very spacious. The only issue we had was that the rooms were extremely warm. The windows only opened a small amount and did not provide enough air in a room that contained 3 people (room 224). We attended the spa on the saturday morning and we really enjoyed the massage and facials. The only downside to the spa was that the leisure centre and spa were not connected. We normally book spa weekends on that basis as in being able to walk around the spa and leisure area in dressing gowns and slippers. Maybe something you could invest in, for your hotel because I think a lot of people would book into your hotel as a spa weekend. Hope that our comments are helpful. Thanks Aileen Redmond & Jacci Connaughton

A lovely hotel with friendly staff.

by Louise on Aug 3 2016 08:48

Myself and my husband stayed with our children for an overnight recently. We had a fabulous time, the room was very spacious and comfortable. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful. The pool and leisure club were excellent. We ate in the bar, the food took a bit longer than we would have liked (it was very busy), but it was cooked fresh and tasted fantastic. We would definitely be back.

We had a superb stay with yourselves. The room was excellent as it was newly decorated and your hotel once completed will look lovely. We have stayed with you many times over the years since you opened we have never been disappointed. The staff are all friendly and nothing is too much trouble a lovely hotel. Food excellent all in all a lovely break. Will certainly see you all again.

Very enjoyable stay, hotel is well maintained and staff are very friendly. The pool was a great hit with the kids but a little cold.

by Carlo Webster on Jul 6 2016 10:44

This is an excellent hotel with awesome leisure facilities, next to train station and the centre of the town. Staff very friendly. Wifi is excellent and the food at breakfast is also very good. Only possible draw back is the lack of air conditioning in each of the rooms as it can get very warm. It is excellent value in a great location with trains leaving for Dublin at 5:30am so it is great for access to Dublin also.

by EJI on Jun 28 2016 09:45

location good and staff very good. some parts of the hotel are in need of a make over (Breakfast area ) also a bigger space for the serving trays ! We were shown to our table but when we came back from getting our breakfast someone else had been sat there and that happened to a few people, Small things and I would stay there again

by carlo on Jun 18 2016 12:45

Really enjoyed my stay here. The staff are very friendly from the reception to the bar. Only concern is the lack of climate control.. The room was very hot as the was level 1. Otherwise I hope to stay here again.. great location and a cool hotel

by Patrick on Jun 17 2016 14:04

Great location right in the centre of town. Staff are exceptional and food is best I have ever had. Lovely atmosphere in hotel ...very friendly. Highly recommend Spago Italian restaurant in the hotel.. Service second to none and steaks are delicious. Rooms are very spacious and spotlessly clean. Highly recommend a visit here and hope to return soon. Thanks

Myself my husband and 2 children just spent the weekend in this lovely hotel, I would highly recommend it, the Rooms where spacious and D├ęcor was lovely, we enjoyed a meal in the bar, burger was great :-) they have a great kids swimming pool, children had a great time. I would like to compliment the staff from reception, leisure centre, Bar/Lounge staff and accommodation staff everyone was so helpful and Friendly. I would also like to compliment Aidan the Duty Manager on being so friendly and helpful. But most of all I would like to say a very big Thank You to Killian from the Bar on How quickly he came to our Aid when my 7 year old son Aaron was choking, Killian performed first Aid on my son and Thankfully he is ok, I cant thank Killian enough for all he did for us and even after the incident he came back to see if we were ok... We wont forget you Killian. We will definitely be back to stay in this hotel a great time was had by all the family. Look forward to staying again The Walsh family Jackie, Declan, Aaron and Daniel :-)

Couldn't fault this hotel, renovations in progress but didn't affect our stay. Two minor complaints 1) when I asked the guy in the pool reception for a second towel for my hair he said "can't we have a towel shortage" and 2) I think that toast should be brought to your table at breakfast. It's a pain to get you breakfast and then queue separately for toast. But overall staff so pleasant and helpful. Would definitely recommend it and will return soon. Thank you Louise

Really enjoyed a recent two night stay in the Hotel. Rooms very clean and a good size. We availed of all the facilities. Spago's serves beautiful Italian food, it was well recommended locally, the pool is a great size and excellently maintained. The bar had entertainment both nights and the staff were very friendly and helpful. We will be back !

I spent one night in the Heritage hotel as I was in Portlaoise for work. All staff were very helpful. The bedroom was clean and the bed very comfortable. The leisure centre was very good, it would have been nice to stay in later than 6.30 on the Sunday evening. Not especially cheap, but overall good value.

by Mack on Apr 19 2016 10:36

Lovely hotel. Pleasant staff, lovely food. Excellent Spa and leisure facilities

by stephen Fogarty on Apr 14 2016 11:46

1st Class Aidan and Deirdre on reception , a barrel of laughs, check in fine. I asked Deirdre for Fish for Breakfast as my preference , Cod present as requested. Lovely meal in Spago's . Overall excellent stay over and will return shortly.

by Kate on Feb 19 2013 18:59

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in the Heritage, Portlaoise. The staff, in particular the staff in Spago s were very friendly. Our B & B and dinner package was excellent value especially considering the quality of our meal in Spagos. We also liked the fact that the hotel is so central to the town. We will definitely be recommending the hotel to family and friends.

by Patsy on Feb 6 2013 09:38

Comfortable and very nice surroundings

by Colette Murray on Dec 9 2012 10:07

I all ways receive a great welcome when I revisit your hotel. I attend the Regional Finals for the Rose of Tralee in Portlaoise every year and always book my accommodation with you in February to insure I get a room. Your staff are polite,kind and well mannered and I always enjoy my stay in the Heritage Hotel. I have recommended your hotel to many of my friends and the feed back I get from them is always very good. Keep up the good work and I will see you in 2013 regards Colette Murray

Warm welcome and great amenities. Would stay again and convenient car parking too

by Anna Ryan on Dec 6 2012 12:39

We had two twin rooms for a girls night away. We could not fault a thing, the room was spacious and clean and the staff were friendly and helpful. We ate at the Italian restaurant Spago all of us agreed the food and wine was excellent and the staff again very helpful and the service fast and informative. The hotel is very close to shopping centres with a many of the main retail shops there. I would recommend this hotel to my friends, we did have to pay a small charge for parking but( was free between 6pm and 10am ) we didn't mind. Thanks again to all the staff a great stay.

We stayed at the Portlaoise Heritage for one night last weekend. The facilities were excellent. Pool is a great size and the jacuzzis, sauna and steamroom suited our needs exactly. We ate in the italian Spago's. There was an initial mixup with our reservation but it was sorted without too much fuss and we thoroughly enjoyed our meal. We had just a main and dessert and both exceeded our expectations. The staff were friendly and we didn't feel rushed at all. The bedroom was perfect and although situated at by the lift lobby on the third floor, it was quiet and we enjoyed a full night's sleep. Breakfast was lovely. Plenty of food to choose from and again, great service. All staff that we came in contact with were courteous and professional. We would recommend the Portlaoise Heritage Hotel to all our friends and family. Thanks for a lovely break

Found the check in lady most helpful, always a good start. Room excellent , nice touch bottle of ballygowan. Austin pulls a good pint in the bar and enjoyed steaks in Kellys even if service a little slow. Will return

Spacious bedroom and bathroom, great food and very friendly staff. A terrific hotel in a very central location. Luxury and indulgence at a very affordable price. I would highly recommend this hotel.

by reviewer41716395 on Oct 9 2012 09:48

I spent a weekend in the hotel with 3 friends on a girly spa package deal. The food was v good (both Spago and Steakhouse), the spa treatments were lovely but there was a bit of a mix up with our confirmed times and we were lounging in the pool when we should've been in the spa for a balneotherapy treatment. The treatments were lovely but unfortunately we couldn't avail of the balneotherapy as the hot water to it wasn't working so we had a nail file and polish instead which was lovely. When I booked the deal it mentioned complimentary wine in the rooms (and the receptionist has confirmed this at the time) but there was no sign of that so I'm not sure whether we were supposed to get that or not. All in all a good weekend and good value.

by Peggie on Oct 7 2012 17:31

great hotel staff very friendly efficient and courteous. leisure club second to none.Will defintely return Margaret

We really enjoyed our stay at the Heritage Hotel in Portlaoise. The reception desk staff were friendly and helpful. It was the last evening of the Ryder Cup and the atmosphere was enhanced by the enthusiasm of the bar staff. The room was excellent. The only negative was when we presented a voucher from the hotel room folder for burger offer and the voucher for the bottle of wine at Kelly's. We waited for over half an hour for the burgers and when the wine hadn't arrived at that point we had the voucher returned as we wanted to see the Ryder Cup coverage. We had asked again for the wine in the meantime but it still hadn't come. This annoyance could have been avoided if we were told that the burgers would be delayed and we had our drink in the meantime.

by Ms Keany on Oct 2 2012 13:55

Just back after a 3 day break in this lovely hotel.The location is great as it is very central to shops and restaurants.The staff were friendly and helpful .We will definitely be back.

by ignatius on Oct 1 2012 14:59

I picked this hotel from advent on airtel and booked right away, we are so glad that we did. I already filled a questaire before leaving the hotel in Portlaoise as to how impressed we where of our stay. Because of the warmest welcome that awaits you on your arrival. From the Reception Staff to Cleaning Staff , Dining Staff specially Adrian, he had a warm weclome for us each evening when we entered the restaurant, pointing out places of interest in the area and anxious to listen as to how we got on. The food was excellant great variety both for Breakfast,Lunch, and evening meals. There is a friendliness in the bars you can enjoy a chat with bar staff and Locals. Rooms are spacious and stylishly furnished. The location is an ideal base from which you can travel around and take in the sights and places of interest. Carparking was brillant adjacent next door to hotel We will hope to return once again to Dalata Hotel Group maybe try a diffient Location next time. Many thanks to all. Without a question 5*
