I was staying here as part of a supervalu getaway break and it only cost 89 euros each for three nights! We were upgraded to a suite as they were heavily booked for week. It was gorgeous with beautiful old furniture. Service was very friendly and efficient. Breakfast was plentiful and enjoyed at a relaxed pace. The evening meal was fine but I wouldn't limit myself to their restaurant. The lounge entertainment was hilarious. An eccentric american pianist with a crowd of drunk(!) american golfers attempting to get in on the act. We encountered the same drunk golfers in at least two other bars in the town. I've never encountered a drunk american before.... It is far enough away from the town to feel as if you are in the country but within walking distance. The leisure centre is fine with a nice pool, not too busy.
The main thing that was great about the Downhill House is that it is obviously family owned and had no corporate/conference feel to it. I am going back in the New Year.
