    A scrap merchant becomes a hands-on hotelier and it doesn't work out - what a surprise.

    Having heard stories for years from staff who knew the place, seeing how badly the place was doing on sites like Tripadvisor and then factoring in that it's a tourist hotel in the middle of nowhere, I always thought it was a matter of time and I imagine that most staff were likewise.

    There was a spin piece in the Indo, I think, this last weekend with Mansfield saying everything was fine and some American company had approached him with a view to buying the Group for One Billion. HA!! Spin spin spin.

    Mansfield is another one of the bertie boys, over exposed & over stayed! I've a bit of delight in his demise but worried we, the tax payer, will end up with his bar bill which I'm sure will have the Palmanstown House & Weston added on as extra's!!

    In my view, its a complete Kip and they have no idea how to run a hotel. FF Ard Feis etc kept them going for years. Don't know anyone who stayed there voluntarily, ie not at a conference there, who liked it.

    Yeah I would be interested in Weston alright.
    Another egotistical dream.
