stayed here for a 3 day romantic surprise break away with my boyfriend,
on arrival i was in awe at the splendour that met me, the grounds were beautiful and very well maintained. inside we were greated with great warmth and hospitality from all staff and shown around then up to our room by Maura one of the hotel manageress's we assume.
the food was of a good standard and although the hotel was old world it was maintained inside to a good standard, the room was beautifully maintained and although there was no kettle etc you could have tea or coffee delivered to your room anytime.
the iron and iron board was not in the room but again was delivered upon request.
i would definately reccommend this hotel to anyone especially for romantic breaks.the only drawback was there was no swimming pool despite the size of the hotel and grounds,
