I visited with a group of my friends for dinner only. We ordered main courses which we all enjoyed and drinks for the table. Upon arrival of the bill we were all charged €50 for a set meal which we had only had a main course. The staff did not inform us the set menu was the only option as of course we would have had three courses knowing this. We were quite upset and they told us we could pay €40 for the meal not including the drinks. This is still ridiculous for a main course only. I was so upset over the poor service offered to us in relation to this and the treatment from the management when we queried this. I will never return on account of this.

Dear Wanderluster96, On booking your group of 10 guests for our New Years Eve dinner, you were informed that we were only serving a €50 set menu which also included a glass of prosecco. When you made the booking we were already quite heavy booked but we managed to secure a booking for your group at 6.30pm. When your group arrived you were all given the menu which clearly stated €50.00 at the top of the menu, therefore this was the second time that you were informed of the set menu available on New Years Eve. When you were presented with the bill you expressed your confusion with Louise who also dealt with your telephone booking, Louise kindly explained that she had informed you on your telephone booking of the set menu price. We could tell that you were upset, so we very kindly offered to reduce the cost of the meal to €40.00 as a gesture of good will. After you left the restaurant we were informed that your group did not pay for your drinks which included cocktails which were on the bill. When we approached you regarding the drinks bill you told us that your group presumed that they were included in the €40.00 per person clearly like the bill stated the €40 reduced rate was for your meal only. We regret that you will not be returning but we believe you were clearly informed about the set menu price for the New Years on two occasions and if you had a problem you should have informed your group or inquired with management before you ordered. All the other 100 or so guests who dined with us on New Years Eve had no confusion over the price and we have received very good feed back from all excluding yourself. I can send on the New Year's Eve menu which clearly states the price at the top if you would like to see it again. Kind regards, Paula Huggard Manager

Yes, this is the Hotel that Charlie Chaplin just loved and you will too. We stayed here just one night but it was delightful. A great location, good restaurants and the small town of Waterville is also very quaint. Had a great sleep in a historic hotel.
