So, this is not my sort of place, but you have to grant the owners their due. This is a medium sized country house with an ugly flat roofed annex by Lough Corrib in Galway. Though it is not on the lake, the grounds are lovely with trees, streams and rhododendrons. The rooms were normal but very, very clean and neat. The welcome was very real and true. The food was very well cooked, if not radically adventurous. My father loved it and thought it was the best ever. I thought it was very old fashioned, out of time; we were served by a James Bond character from Casino Royale (the David Niven version) and it was all too intimate for me. I like my hotels more impersonal but others might like it (like my father).
