Last Friday evening at a prestigious Awards Ceremony in Belfast's Stormont Hotel, the 4 Star Hillgrove Hotel, Leisure & Spa in Monaghan was awarded Number One Family Hotel in Ireland for the second year running! The Awards, presented by Pamela Ballentine of UTV Fame, was a night of glitz and glamour attended by a group of Hillgrove Hotel's Management and Staff. Families First Awards recognise the companies, products and people who put Irish families first and make life a little easier for them. This award is a massive achievement and honour for the Monaghan based Hotel and all its staff.


"We are totally thrilled to have been honoured with this fantastic Award for the second year in a row", says Audri Herron, who owns the Hillgrove Hotel with her husband Colm. "A few years back, we saw the potential and need in the market place for an excellent Family Hotel that "treats Kids like VIP's". We understand what families are looking for, being guided by our 10 year old daughter Scarlett. So we set about creating a family friendly environment with lots of activities for children to enjoy, whilst their parent's enjoyed our other facilities, such as our Spa & Wellness Centre, Hair Salon, Leisure Club or Bistro Bar. We have a outside playground, and three games rooms on site, these are a great attraction to our local customers as well as our visitors". "We would like to thank our customers for nominating us and voting for us to win this amazing Award" Audri concludes, "We appreciate your loyalty and custom so much."


In addition to the Playground and Games Rooms, the Hotel offers seven, yes seven hours, of free Kids Clubs daily during all school holidays and every Saturday and Sunday throughout the year. They also provide large family and interconnecting bedrooms, family changing rooms in their Leisure Club which has a Kids Pool, Swim Suit Dryers, Popcorn and Goodie Vending Machines, Kids Ride-ons, Kids Splash Times, Fit Kidz and Teen Zone Classes. The Hotel also have a bouncy castle on-site, can things get any more exciting than that?! In addition to all this, the Hillgrove Hotel provide delicious children’s menus, which include many healthy options too. They also cater for children’s Birthday parties and can organise babysitting and the following local activities, (charges apply): Horse-riding, Animal Farm, Pitch & Putt, Cinema, Bowling, Park Walks, Water Slides, Quad Biking, Planetarium and much more.
