Like many others I guess - we got a groupon deal for a 2 night stay, including one afternoon tea, beginning on St. Patricks Day. From arrival the staff were great especially those operating on reception on what was a very busy weekend - they couldn't have been more attentive and helpful especially to my wife who had been suffering the effects of flu.
Our room had a great view over the golf course which made down time even better.
I had the pleasure of playing on both days on what I now consider to be one of Ireland's hidden gem golf courses - it really was that good!. Ciaran and the team in pro shop were fantastic in making the arrangements and the price , as a resident, was a great bonus. Thanks also to the local members Larry, Seamus and Ryan who helped introduce me to the many challenges of the course on day one and to Tony, Trevor and Mark from Holywood GC for a great days golfing on day two.
The Hotel has plenty of areas for unwinding and for the enjoyment of Afternoon Tea which is a lovely experience in itself - the service and demeanour of staff only added to the enjoyment. The staff in the golfing bar/ restaurant were also fantastic.
I agree with other reviewers that the hotel caters for all , golfers, families, couples, events - many other hotels would do well to copy the Slieve Russell in the standards that they set.The Customer and the experience are at the centre of what they deliver - We will be back.
