Just returned from a two night stay in The Ardilaun Hotel and once again the experience was fabulous. The welcome was friendly and very efficient on what was a showery cold day in the west. From the moment we stepped inside the front door, the warmth in the air reflected the warmth of the welcome. Our room on the second floor was clean and well equipped for our stay. The meals on both nights were superb with a totally different menu each night, a good range of wine in a reasonable price range added to the enjoyment of the meal on both nights. Breakfast each morning was of a very high standard,however the black pudding was a little overcooked or maybe it was just a little tired from waiting to be picked out and eaten from the very well stocked food display area!The service in the bar was prompt and very professional throughout the day and during the busy night time period. One of the many attractions of the hotel is the spacious and comfortable reception area which certainly allows guests the time and space to relax and savour the pleasant atmosphere in the hotel. The Leisure Centre attached to the hotel contains a wide range of attractions for those in pursuit of leisurely activities or the more strenous high energy activities.
The many and diverse aspects of the hotel are unified by the friendliness of each and every member of the staff we encountered durng our stay. The genuine desire of each staff member to ensure that we felt at home was very evident throughout our stay. This was captured for me by the efforts of the girl with the hoover on the stairs who smiled and greeted me as she gathered the flex and moved the hoover to one side to allow for my safe passage on the stairs as she completed her work while at the same time ensuring that the guest felt welcome.
Our check-out was a pleasant experience and we left with a real desire to return at the earliest opportunity and also with the feeling that our return would be welcome and appreciated by the entire team at The Ardilaun.
