Upon entering and being greeted by Moira on Reception nothing was too much trouble for any of the staff, can genuinely say they were all the friendliest bunch I have ever met. Moira was a star.
We eat in the restaurant on the first night, it was very quiet which was a shame but the food was superb well done to the chef and the portions were huge you dont need a starter. Breakfast was good as well with plenty of choice either the full irish or continental which you help yourself to or you can order from the menu which is a nice touch kippers or eggs benedict etc. Another nice touch is if you want tea/coffee in room which is complimentary you just ordered from reception which we did and it arrived within 10 minutes alot better then having a kettle and milk in little cartons sitting around. Everything in the rooms that you need although the only downside is they are a little dated (sorry about that) I really didnt want to be negative on anything as they were great. Nice walk around the Lough as well. Well done.
