We had our wedding in Minella in 1998 and could not thank Liz & John Nallen enough for the most perfect day. Since then we have been going back to Minella at least once a year. We always get a warm welcome from both John & Liz and there is usually a treat in store for us, e.g. complimentary champagne & chocs delivered to our room, a free upgrade etc. We have had a couple of family events at the hotel also over the years and our family are also treated very well and made feel very special.
I was sent a text message in Feb with an offer for St. Patrick’s weekend, 3 night b&b with one evening meal for €165 per person which I booked as I thought it was great value. We had a great weekend. The rooms in the new extension are fabulous and have a five star feel about them. (Huge comfy bed with cosy duvet etc, very modern design & decor, flat screen tv, internet access & a wonderful balcony with table & chairs & fab views).
We had a lovely dinner on one of the nights, the food is very good. The menus are quite simple but it is quality ingredients cooked very well which is always a welcome treat. We had bar food on the night we arrived which was also very tasty. The breakfasts were also excellent.
I booked a massage in the leisure centre and I was very pleased with my treatment and the price (at €45, this is the cheapest massage I have ever had in Ireland or the UK).
I have one complaint around breakfast in your room. There aren't any cards to fill out & hang on your door so instead I rang down on two of the mornings. On the first morning it was OK, however on the second morning I was told they were too busy! I told the girl that we were happy to wait for a while until things were quieter in the restaurant so she agreed but did not sound the happiest. Breakfast arrived quite quickly and was lovely but if I had accepted her first answer, I would not have been happy.
Other than that we had a very enjoyable stay and we both look forward to our return to Minella.
It is a lovely hotel and in my opinion it's classification as a three star does not do it justice. Having stayed in hotels all around Ireland & the UK, mainland Europe, the States, Canada & South Africa, this is very well deserving of at least 4 stars.
