We stayed here for 3 nights with our 4 month old baby. On our arrival we were shown to our suite room, which was a good size with great views over the gardens. Despite the room having period furniture, it was spotlessly clean and dust free, something that I find many rooms with antique furnishings fall down on.
The room has no tea/coffee making facilities, which for us meant no kettle for the baby's bottles, however on requesting a kettle for this reason, one was produced within minutes. No fuss made.
We sat up and had drinks in the bar with the hosts Elaine and Henry one night as they told us stories of the hotel, and generally had a good chinwag. They are lovely hosts and make you feel perfectly at home. Joe the butler deserves a special mention for his Irish charm and service qualities. The dinner in the evenings is done by Elaine, and is brilliantly cooked, homely food. It is a tad costly for what you get, however we happily paid for the service and atmosphere we received.
Location wise, it is "out of the way" which was perfect for us, but it you like to walk to a local pub or shop it's not for you. Galway is enchanting, and we loved it, but most of all we fell in love with Ross lake house hotel, and have already talked about returning!
