So for €300 for a night you would expect a bit more than average and after hearing about this hotel thought it was worth it. First thing struck me when we arrived in our suite was the fabulous view. It was a warm day and room was quite stuffy and no air con. A glass jar left beside the kettle... More

Stayed here with my husband August Bank holiday weekend, we had a beautiful room with view over the river. Bed was extremely comfortable. Resturant food and service was the best we had all summer. Just one draw back in the whole weekend was the parking outside the hotel, not a lot of it and on a busy Sunday afternoon was... More

The Spa itself was very nice, I had the hot stone massage and couldn't recommend tgis treatment enough. The breakfast wasn't great however which was my only dissappointment,... More

We stayed in the Still room. I don't think we've had a quieter room in any hotel. Unfortunately, we arrived late to the hotel after a wedding at Belleek Castle and couldn't see the view. The next morning blew our socks off. The hallway to the room was floor to ceiling glass with a spectacular view of the boats on... More

Good choice for short stay - no kids. Restaurant food is really brilliant. Service excellent and the interior is really tasteful. Breakfast is fab - again great service. One thing - DO NOT start to look at the heron that nests across the river. You can see him from your table at breakfast, at dinner and even from your room.... More

We have just returned from our second stay here and it was just as brilliant as the first! Great location, rooms, staff & service as well as top notch food - would particularly recommend he chocolate dessert plate! One of the best hotels in Ireland.
