My husband and I stayed here the first week that restrictions were lifted and hotels reopened. The check in staff were very friendly. Originally we had booked for March 2021 and at that time I had mentioned it was our wedding anniversary, although it was June before we got to stay, we were treated to a bottle of bubbly, chocolates and a greeting card wishing us a happy anniversary. This was a lovely, personal touch and very much appreciated. We ate in the restaurant both nights. The service was definitely challenged on the first night, and small mistakes were happening around us. On the second night this escalated, with problems from both the kitchen and the floor staff. I ended up with potato wedges and nothing else for my main course. We did ask to speak to a senior staff and she apologised and gave us a free drink and dessert and coffee on the house, which was a welcome gesture. I hope the problems have been resolved now that the hotels have been open for several weeks. Locally we spent time at Torc waterfall and in the vast gardens of Muckross park. We also took a boat trip to Dinnys island which I would highly recommend. All in all we enjoyed our stay.

We stayed for one overnight on the 18th June and it was perfect in every way. Rooms were a nice size, quiet and very comfortable. The food was beautiful and the atmosphere relaxed. The location was nice and central but the best of all was the staff, they were all so welcoming and friendly. Thank you for a lovely stay will definitely return. Highly recommend this hotel
