Great hotel the staff could not do enough for you and we're so friendly Vera and Caroline on reception a pleasure to deal with. No ask was too big. Food and drink was lovely, only negative was service in bar was slow at times. Other than that could not fault it.

We arrived on Friday but earlier than check in so went for lunch. Simple menu at the moment but the burgers were excellent including the vegetarian "beyond burger". Wide section of drinks. Warm welcome from the staff. They managed to get our rooms ready early. Swimming pool area was clean and tidy and there were ground staff making the outside look lovely. We left on Sunday after another lunch. The staff were all so welcoming and made us laugh. I have to mention Katie and Kelly who knew exactly what they were doing next, with a great sense of purpose and service. Breakfast was fantastic. We stayed because it was near to a wedding we were attending but would love to come and stay again, maybe when Tipp races are on because you can see the racecourse from the hotel. The golf course looked great also but I haven't played in years.

Stayed in hotel while on essential travel on Saturday night 20th February. We were treated very well in the hotel. Maggie, the receptionist was exceptional. Given these difficult times she was a ray of light to our hotel stay. The dinner we had was the best hotel meal we have had on our travels in the last 6 months.

went just to use the pool and the place is just so dirty, how they have that many stars is completely beyond me. when you walk into the changing rooms you walk into darkness as the bulb is flickering, was there in October and same bulb was flickering. everything is just wrecked with rust which just doesnt happen in other hotels. the shower curtains cant be pulled across properly because of getting caught on the rust. the temperature of the pool was way way too cold and a lady in the pool said it has been like this for 3 days yet I was not made aware of it. i obviously would not have brought a child into a pool that could have made him sick because of how cold it was. my poor child was just so cold we had to get out of the pool after just 10 mins..... the first thing we could do after lockdown and this was it. I went into the steamroom, no steam and no notice to advise the room was broken. the jacuzzi then was the extreme, really really hot. this hotel badly needs to be looked at and where it is not safe they should close.
