My wife is very adept at finding great hotels for our little breaks.
This time she really got it right. The Wineport Lodge is a little different to your run of the mill hotels. The location alone was worth every penny. We were welcomed and shown to our room by a lovely youg lady who was very chatty and efficient. The room (Burgundy) was just awesome. Very spacious, clean and a balcony overlooking the lake. We spent a lot of time looking out at the view and the peace and quiet was perfect.
We were staying for 2 nights and had dinner on the first night in the restaurant.
Words escape me to describe the food in the Wineport, I loved every morsel. We were very well looked after and the restaurant staff were attentive but not overly so. There is a very relaxed atmosphere in the restaurant which adds to the overall enjoyment. I have to mention the little cup of soup, I was considering cancelling the steak and just ordering a big bowl it.!
We had breakfast in our room on the first morning, arrived on time and was hot and tasty.
We visited Clonmacnoise and Athlone during the day and returned to the hotel that evening where we spent the evening relaxing. We went down for breakfast on the second morning and again were very well looked after and breakfast was lovely.
We loved this place and will definitely return.
The Wine is not a cheap hotel, if you want cheap then don't go here. What you get for your money however is well worth it if you are prepared to pay. This is a special place.
Thank you to all for making our stay so enjoyable.
