Four Stars For The Anner Hotel

There is great excitement at the Anner Hotel this week as the Owners and Management announce that the Anner Hotel has just been awarded a prestigious 4 Stars by Fáilte Ireland. This is the culmination of an extensive programme of improvements by the Maher Brothers since they purchased the Hotel in April 2014. The improvements introduced by the owners and management have been on all levels including the premises itself, staffing, service quality, food and beverages. The Mahers are delighted with this excellent “4 Star”news and describe it as a great reward for all the hard work and commitment shown by their excellent new management team and staff.

A First for Thurles:

This is wonderful news for the town and is the first time in the history of Thurles that it can boast a 4 Star Hotel in the town. The Mahers have confirmed their delight at the 4 Star Award and see it as a wonderfully positive step in their long term plan to make the Anner Hotel one of the finest in the region. They plan to continue this growth in the coming years. They also believe that the presence of such a high quality hotel in the town will also act as a catalyst to help attract much needed new industry and employment to the town and will also enable them to attract extra prestigious events, weddings and conferences and tourists to Thurles. In addition, they believe, this new 4 Star rating for the Anner Hotel will enable them secure and grow the long term future for the 80+ team of staff now employed and will continue to greatly boost the town economically. This is a further endorsement of the impressive progress the hotel has made following the award in 2015 of the commendable Tripadvisor “Certificate of Excellence” rating combined with a 4 and a half star guest rating on Tripadvisor.

Prestige Wedding Venue:

The owners and management are also placing particular focus on establishing the Hotel as the prestige wedding venue in the region. They confirm that they have invested huge effort and resources in the facilities, management and service levels to provide a top class wedding experience and the 4 star rating testifies to this. They invite all intending brides and grooms to make an appointment with their wedding specialist Courtney to see for themselves.
