I felt compelled to leave this very positive review of Temple Spa after staying there for 2 nights last weekend. The facility is beautiful, spacious and tastefully designed...........but the staff are 5 Star Hotel Quality. Great interaction between staff and the atmosphere is very relaxing. The food in the restaurant (breakfast and evening meal) is top-class and would only be... More

Absolutely no atmosphere whatsoever in the place, the pool shuts at 6, only 3 choices for a main course so we ended up driving into moate and had a lovely Chinese for €12.50 each for 2 courses. Arrived... More

I was looking forward to it as i had heard good things but i was very disappointed. The place has a very sterile feel about it, there is no 'spa' feel, no sense of luxury.... More
