We arrived late and we're treated fantastically. Had our two babies with us and they could not do enough to help. Every member of staff we met throughout the hotel was helpful,professional and most importantly extremely friendly

Stayed here in 2011 on a package deal with dinner and champagne included. We stayed in the bridal suite which was amazing. The food in the Vanilla Pod restaurant was great and the pub was nice. The staff were very friendly and welcoming. The hotel has a lovely back garden. We were above the pub so it was quite noisy... More

We stayed on a weekend deal at this Hotel. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The bedrooms are very spacious and although the furniture is a little old and worn the bed was comfortable and the room was very clean. The restaurant "Vanilla Pod" was small but the food was superb. There was live entertainment in the lounge and... More

This is a review of a Groupon (or Grabone?) Afternoon Tea and Spa deal rather than a hotel stay. The staff I encountered were all very nice, but it's very much a "country" hotel and not really suitable to a spa day. We were brought upstairs to a tiny spa area, in to a treatment room, received our treatment (mine... More

Many thanks for your constructive feedback which we appreciate. We do hope that the 'Afternoon offer' which was an online sale represented good value at a 67% discount including three treatments at the Spa. We are sorry if you felt rushed, our tranquility suites are supposed to offer just that and in general we receive very positive feedback in terms... More

This Hotel, just like many other 3 Star Hotels in Ireland right now is badly in need of a make-over. I stayed overnight in Room 310 & although the Food was excellent and the Staff were really friendly, that's where the good times ended. In my Room for the night, the Sink in the Bathroom was badly cracked. There was... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
In the Heritage Town Kells, the Duff family celebrate 40 years at the helm of one of Meath’s hospitality landmarks in the Heart of the Boyne Valley of Ireland. The hotel boasts 45 bespoke rooms, Headfort Spa Rooms, Vanilla Pod Award Winning Restaurant, Cafe Therese Casual Dining Cafe, Kelltic Bar Traditional Pub, Banquesting Facilities and beautiful gardens . Those years of commitment to excellence was recognized not only by its Gold Medal Award for Best Three-Star hotel Ireland, but also most recently at the Kells Chamber of Commerce Business Awards, when receiving the award of ‘Best Customer Service’in Business. ‘We were delighted with this award said Olivia, as it is thanks to all of our loyal team of staff who offer the Headfort welcome and service to our guests, old and new’. The Headfort is the life and sole of the Kells social scene. It offers so much to its visitors in it’s selection of outlets from the Award Winning Vanilla Pod Restaurant to the thriving Kelltic Bar and the Headfort Spa Rooms which focuses on using only Irish products. According to the Duff family, it’s not easy doing business at the moment, price competition is relentless and the customer has never had such choice but the Headfort is committed to providing value, supporting local producers and retaining the personal touch on every guest encounter. The hotel is delighted to report an upsurge in bookings for 2013, according to Vincent ‘the customer really wants the personal touch, the knowledge that you are there on their special day and that family run atmosphere, they have been and tasted the large branded chain hotels and we feel there is a return to good Irish hospitality and a guarantee of freshly prepared local food’ As a member of Irish Country Hotels, the 26 Independent hotel marketing group, the Headfort is one of only 26 hotels in Ireland and the first service industry in Ireland to receive the accreditation of being ‘Guaranteed Irish’. This is demonstrated in the hotels commitment to using local suppliers, employing local and using local and Irish produce at every opportunity. In this way the hotel serves as an even greater support to the local economy and there is no doubt that this is what the customer wants for the future. ... more   less
