This hotel was a delight. It provided a level of comfort and service found all too rarely these days, I'm afraid. Some might say it was a tad old-fashioned in terms of its decor. We thought it reflected the classic country house style (both in furnishing and attitude to service) that is so welcome.
We arrived around 5 on Saturday 31st July and were delighted by the warm and friendly (but genuine) welcome from proprietor Henry Reid. Our room (B & B rate €150 per night) was a suite (the Strevens suite) which exceeded our most optimistic expectations in terms of size, facilities and comfort. Dinner that evening was excellent - genuinely high class cuisine with friendly and attentive service (€45 per head). Both the small bar and lounge offered comfort and atmosphere. Breakfast the following morning did not disappoint in any way.
All in all a first class experience at a reasonable price. Nice people, a lovely setting, comfort, good food, excellent service. What else do you want?
