The spa and swimming pool were excellent, rooms were lovely.
The dinner menu in the restaurant was not of quite the same standard as the rest of the hotel. However the Sunday lunch was excellent.
The health spa and general service by all staff
Excellent hotel standard. Great breakfast selection. Close to Cavan town centre.
Surroundings, design, location are all what you'd hope. Restaurant was good.
I would not recommend this hotel for a family holiday. Children are not allowed into the swimming pool, which is part of the spa. That's fine as long as you know about it beforehand, which I didn't. I searched the Radisson SAS website later and still couldn't find any reference to this, thought it may be there. Another negative point is the parking. You need to park about 300m from the hotel and take a shuttle bus to the doors. Most inconvenient, but at least it didn't rain at any point while we did this. I had some notice of this from locals, at least. Once you know about these items, and are prepared for them, you can expect a good experience.
The use of the Spa Treatment Centre ie. the sauna, steam rooms, foot baths, indoor/outdoor pool it was amazing.
