6 of us travelled to Glenlo on Saturday in the height of the bad stormy weather for a New Year get together and what a wonderful afternoon evening and morning we had. I called in advance and spoke to an extremely pleasant friendly lady Maura. She is a huge asset to the hotel in our opinion. Our rooms were not ready so we headed to the bar downstairs and started the party going. Well it was 4.30PM when we decided to go get our keys. Nothing was too much trouble with the staff from the time we arrived.
We ate in the hotel and the food was gorgeous. Presented very well and the dining room is very comfy and we had the added bonus of a round table.
I thought the music in the cellar bar was a little bit not suitable for our age group (50 - 65), although the girls were very talented.
The hotel was full on the night and again extremely busy at breakfast but the service was excellent. Well done to all of the staff. They made our stay very pleasant.
The rooms are a little dated if I was been honest but it did not effect our time there. The hotel itself had 3 log fires lighting which was very cosy.
