Stayed for three nights in March this year to celebrate hubbys' big birthday. Booked a superior room which claimed some with reek views which I asked for on phone with receptionist -this is my only gripe- she told me a room with view could not be guaranteed and seemed to be very uncaring of the fact it was a special occassion, I almost phoned back and cancelled as I really wanted this to be special, boy was I glad I didn't! We were accommodated in a fabulous courtyard suite and although no view it was total luxury at every level, plus hubby treated to birthday greetings and handmade chocs on the day. The bathroom was enormous with seperate shower and jacuzzi bath plus speakers from the music system in the bedroom - bliss! The bed was so comfortable for two people with back trouble, our sleep so good, we ended up buying a similar mattress with the aid of information from Claire a most helpful staff member. All the staff were efficient and friendly and so professional from housekeeping to restaurant staff, it just makes such a difference. we were treated like royalty, always seemed to get a great window location in restaurant for dinner and breakfast, allowing us to enjoy the truly sumptuous food while revelling in the scenery. There was entertainment in the bar on Saturday night which allowed us to have a drink in comfort as Westport at the weekend came be a bit rowdy in spots.
Overall our Knockranny experience was truly wonderful and I was so happy that our special occassion seemed to matter and was well catered for, very important in these times when spending hard earned money its great to feel you're getting value and its appreciated. We'll be back!
