4 of 5 stars Reviewed today NEW

Beautiful aspect , dining room on the level of the curve of the estuary of the river Moy. Lovely atmosphere in this well designed addition to an intriguing old house. Excellent service and good food presented in an inventive and colourful style. Could have more vegetarian choices for main course

4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Stayed here recently and thoroughly enjoyed it. The rooms are lovely and clean and very spacious. Fantastic views overlooking the River Moy. The food is fresh and delicious. Unfortunately we didn't have time to sample the spa, but will definitely be back again in the future. Ideal hotel for a girly weekend or couples retreat.

Staying here currently in the old part of the hotel, which we did not expect to be in a room that did not have a view and are extremely disappointed in this. When I asked the receptionist could we move there were no rooms, she apologised but yet not even a completely bottle of wine to make up for it.... More

We returned here after having such a great time two years ago. It has changed and in some ways improved. We stayed in the riverside suite which was ample room for two adults and 2 children. The welcome included personalized cookies for the kids and bubbles for mummy. I love the glass space in the dining room and the seafood... More

I booked the Ice House to celebrate my hubby's 40th birthday for 2 nights. When we arrived the hotel itself is lovely, nice reception area, nice staff. We checked in swiftly and were escorted to our Riverside Suite Nugget room. The views from the suite are amazing overlooking the river, ducks swimming by, boats moored by the river bank. Floor...

By far the best hotel I've ever been too! We were greeted by Katie at reception who checked us in and showed us to our room, which was amazing with great views and a really comfy bed! The food in the restaurant was top notch, really could not complain. The cocktails made by Leo were also fantastic. All in all... More

We had tried to say here several times, but usually left our booking too late, but having learnt our lesson, we booked about 6 weeks in advance. We had a riverside suite in the spa area of the hotel and it was delightful The view through the floor to ceiling windows across the river Moy, with its wildlife was very... More

We stay here when visiting family in the area. Book the river suites as they are right on the river with great views, have balconies for afternoon tea and have a large work desk, which is key for me as I always end up working on vacation. The wifi is good but the cell phone reception in the room is... More
