4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

We stayed for a couple of days at the beginning of August and overall everything was great. The room was a good size, clean and comfortable with a big bathroom. The lobby area is a little bit tired and could use some new carpet. The gardens are beautiful and a credit to the landscaping team. Food in the restaurants is... More

We had a great room which was very pleasant. The grounds are very scenic with a nice walk about a mile and a half around the grounds. The only downside (which would be an upside in different circumstances or for different people) is that we were there for a romantic couple of days for a wedding anniversary seemingly at the...

I have just returned from a few days break with my wife, two daughters and grandson. Everything was first class. The golf course is one of the best I have ever played. The soft play room was the best I have every seen in a hotel. My daughters loved the leisure centre and spa which offered everything you could need.... More

I stayed here with my family for a night to celebrate my Mams birthday. There is an option to have flowers organised for somebody in their room for when they arrive so I paid for that for my mam and the bouquet was really beautiful and well worth the money. We booked into the spa for massages and also had... More

Slieve russel This Is a dated, well worn, typical big Irish hotel. It's on a beautiful golf course but yet no where (in the hotel public areas) can you enjoy the view. The only place is probably the golf course restaurant, however this has a no child policy. When we arrived there was a long queue at reception and a... More

Dear Reviewer Thank you for choosing us for your recent stay.We are truly dissapointed to read that the styling & general facilities we offer did not meet your expectations. We have recently completed extensive refurbishment works which has been ongoing since January 2013 and will continue with an additional refurbishment schedule during winter and spring 2016.

My partner and I came here for a wedding and were absolutely delighted! The hotel rooms are incredibly spacious luxurious, and the grounds are impeccable. The garden was beautiful and romantic, and added a lovely feel to the weekend. The breakfast service is also well stocked and great! I was actually sad to leave, but hope to return in the... More

This is a lovely hotel where, for the most part you get what you pay for...good food, comfortable beds, and good service. Our only gripe with this hotel was the €20pp charge to use the hydrotherapy suite. While it was nice, we discovered the following morning that there was a jacuzzi, steam room and sauna available free of charge in... More
