We are just nearing the end of our 4 night stay and couldn't have picked a better hotel - the position just wow and the view in the morning from the panoramic bedroom windows felt like the river was within touching distance! Nice touch of room names instead of numbers and the facilities within the room were great - a...

Pro's: The Ice House is beautifully situated and our room was in the modern part of the hotel with a fantastic view of the river. The room was nicely presented and the bed was very comfortable. My one quibble is the pillows which are those feather filled variety which feel lovely but give no support to your head. So if...

Biggest complaint up front: walls of the Olive room were paper thin. Literally could hear normal level conversations word for word in the adjacent room. While it was entertaining to learn about our neighbors latest gossip about their relatives and hear their TV program selections as if they were playing in our room, that was not why I paid €110...

Stayed here for one night in the bantra suite. Undoubtedly one if the nicest hotel suites I have visited, authentic period style, tons of space and a bathroom to die for. We then set off to the pool to relax for the afternoon, however there is no pool which I just assumed there would be. There were two outdoor hot...

What started off to be a slight disappointed turned out to be a wonderful relaxing weekend away! I booked this as a birthday present for my Fiancé and when I emailed the hotel about the "double room" I had booked on booking.com it was quite apparent they were advertising the lovely cedar bath which was not in the double room...

We booked an overnight stay in the Ice House Hotel earlier this week to celebrate our wedding anniversary. We arrived after 6pm and were greeted and shown to our suite by the river.
