“Ambience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2012

I judge a hotel by how the staff make me feel when I first arrive. The reception is at the bar. I, my wife, daughter and dog were made instantly welcome and felt immediately at home. The lodge with its modern facilities was first class; food and wine excellent; service from all members of staff could not be faulted; and bar drinks were reasonably priced.

Room Tip: Just ask Ian what you would like.

Nice staff and good breakfast did not make up for dirty room and sticky chairs etc in dining room. Bathroom was also tiny and not as clean as it should be. Could have been so much better if the cleanliness had matched the welcome and the pretty decent food

We were perfectly happy with our little log cabin for a one night stop-off, and thought the price was OK, but wouldn't have wanted to stay longer - we need a bit more space. It's very dog and family friendly, but the downside is that children can be very noisy and we like peace and quiet. Food was good and staff very pleasant - thank you.

25 guests all booked into lovely clean and cosy lodges, dining room decorated, tables all set out with buffet supplied. Curry was absolutely magic. Band arranged by the management was fantastic and we all danced our feet off along with other guests. The bar staff were great and looked after us all night and the hearty breakfast in the morning was just what we needed. A brilliant venue for a small party and would like to thank Jennie, Ian, all the staff and not forgetting Mr Jaconelli for the entertainment. Magic weekend!!!

We stayed at one of the log cabins here as the location was spot on. Our accomodation was comfortable and thankfully kept the midges out at night. The bar was good, main meals ok, and a good breakfast. Excellent parking facilities. Staff were keen to make sure everything was ok.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2012

6 of us ate here July 2012. The place was very quirky and cosy - a lovely place to eat. The bar and waiting staff were very very pleasant and couldn't do enough for us. However, apart from another couple with a small child there was nobody else in the place for the 2 hours or so we were there.

A party of 28 rang to book whilst we were there and the 2 girls ran around like the proverbial re-arranging tables and setting them asap. The excitement soon turned sour when the same people rang up 30 minutes later to cancel having gone elsewhere. A dirty trick by any standards but they will have got their come-uppance as we had been to the same place the previous night and it was dire!!

I tell this tale only to demonstrate that this dastardly trick didn't have any effect on the excellent service we received.

The food was nothing special but good pub fare at a reasonable price and plenty of it. We tried both the Reds they had on offer and they too were reasonable.

I suspect had the place been a bit better frequented we would have had a much better time with some good craic.
