I stayed in Carton House for one night in August 2009. Could not fault this luxurious hotel. No expense has been spared with fittings and furnishings. Wonderful spa also but it needs a full thermal suite to fully compliment it.
The food at dinner and breakfast could have been better, and I felt that the efficiency of the table staff really let the dining room down.
Otherwise, I would recommend this hotel and I will be returning.

Recently stayed here for my birthday weekend with my boyfriend and really enjoyed the experience. We stayed in the Lennox Suite which over looked the beautiful grounds and was located in the older part of the house. The room was spotless, had everything you would need and we were treated to Butler's chocolates each night of our stay. We ate in the Linden Tree for dinner and breakfast which was delicious! Spa was probably the highlight for me, an hour and half facial and then treated to sorbet afterwards in the relaxation room. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful, cant wait to go back and get spoilt again!!

I replied to the survey regarding our visit and I neglected to mention the wonderful experience we had in the restaurant on the 17th April. We were waited on by a great guy from Romania who was friendly, chatty and an example to all.

Top marks to all the staff as I haven't met as friedly a lot in all the years I have stayed in hotels both for work and weekend breaks.

Keep it up as it make you stand out form the rest and it makes such a difference.

I stayed at Carton House in to enjoy a break with a small group of family and friends prior to a family wedding. The hotel was beautiful, old mixed with new. The staff were helpful and professional, particularly in the restaurant where service was excellent. Dinner was included with the booking and was delightful. The bar staff were very friendly and very attentive, ensuring that our glasses were never empty for too long. I would recommend this hotel to anyone wanting a relaxing break in a superior setting. It truly is beautiful. I finally want to mention and say thank you to the Bar and Food Manager, Terry. He really made our stay all the more enjoyable. I look forward to returning to Carton House in the near future.

Arriving on a wet morning we were treated royaly from the moment we checked in.The drive in was impressive enough but the hotel itself is wonderful, mixing the old with new with relative ease. The rooms were very good but maybe a little tight as we had 2 interconnecting rooms (one for the kids). Maybe its the fact that corridors to the rooms are very generous in size, giving an impression that rooms would be bigger . .? They were nice appointed and cleaned every day. We didn't avail of the formal dining and chose to eat with the kids in the club house. The food and service was very good. We did use the pool and it was great for the kids. We also used the tennis courts, driving range and cycled around the paths around the grounds. the facilities were excellent. I can see why Real Madrid came for the training!
We had a great time and will most certainly return in the near future.
