We've returned home today after a 3 night stay at the Rothay Manor Hotel. We had booked for 2 nights, we spent these in room 14; we wanted to extend our stay by one night because we were enjoying ourselves so much, even though it hardly stopped raining. We spent the extra night in room 6. Both rooms were extremely comfortable, very well furnished and with powerful showers. This is very important to my husband and I because we have a power shower at home, and miss it when we're away on holiday. Room 14 was our favourite. It's on the ground floor, at the side of the hotel. It has a private terrace in a lovely little garden. Room 6 was on the first floor at the front of the hotel. This room had a balcony with table and chairs.
The food was out of this world. It would be too difficult to pick out a favourite meal. We see somebody has written that they thought the food was expensive; we have to disagree. We think it was excellent value for money. The Sunday we were there, the hotel was fully booked for lunch and for afternoon tea.
The staff were, without exception, very professional and helpful. They made sure everything was to our satisfaction without fawning over us.
We will definitely be back.
