“Minella's the best for confirmation lunch”
Reviewed April 1, 2014

I booked lunch at the Hotel Minella to celebrate my daughter's confirmation with my extended family. It exceeded expectations! Lunch was perfect, menu appropriate to all ages. As the venue was chosen by many other families from the parish, it meant that the children had friends as well as cousins to play. The adults too could relax in the many rooms available other than the bar. For my daughter, Bobo, the owner's labradoodle was a huge hit!
The patience and skill of the young blonde waitress was also exemplary. She kept the young girls topped up with freshly made hot chocolates late into the evening. As we all agreed, being in the Minella was like being a guest in a very comfortable home with staff waiting on us hand and foot!!

We are just back from a three night stay at The Minella Hotel in Clonmel.This is certainly a hotel for the proprietors to be proud of.We found the hotel to be spotless and the staff well trained,professional and friendly.The grounds too are beautiful and well kept as is The Minella Club facility.
Our room was of a good size and although overlooking the car park also had a views of the mountains.
One thing we were most impressed by,was that although there were a number of functions on during our stay,the owner ensured that the children who were attending were not allowed to disrupt those guests who were not a part of the function.
The Minella would have been well worthy of five stars from us except for one aspect.The shower in our room was not very powerful,however we are realistic and realise there may be some pressure limitations on some of the higher floors.On our last morning however it reduced to nothing more than a trickle and despite turning the head and trying to adjust it would not improve.Although we were checking out we felt we should mention this for the benefit of the hotel and future guests.This we mentioned to the lady on Reception during our check-out, however the response we got was curt and she was quite short with us,which was really a great shame as every other member of staff we dealt with, including another very capable lady who checked us in, were an absolute credit to the hotel.There were two people on the Reception at the time of our checkout perhaps she felt under pressure as it was quite busy at the time.
We were visiting our new in-laws in Clonmel and had a wonderful time in Ireland.We would certainly would recommend this hotel it was just a shame that our last exchange with a member of the hotel staff could not have been handled better.

Room Tip: A river view perhaps?

I recently chose Hotel Minella for a family birthday lunch. I chose it for its location as guests were coming from Munster and Leinster. I also chose it because the ample gardens meant we had somewhere for us to tire out the 9 children attending! It was obvious when I got there that this hotel knew how to throw a good birthday lunch. They had proactively decorated the table with balloons and personalised the menus. They rang me in advance and asked would I like a cake - no extra charge. Before the meal they brought out balloons and colouring materials for each child. The food selection was excellent and the portions great. They even came around offering second servings of beef, much to the delight of some of our hungrier guests! Afterwards, we relaxed by the fire in one of the drawing rooms. Is there anything nicer than a business exceeding your expectations?

We stayed for a two night break away with the sole purpose of simply relaxing. The Minella was the perfect choice. The hotel is spotlessly clean, beds are possibly the most comfortable we've slept in and the service was excellent. The leisure facilities are as good as any and the outdoor jacuzzi was fabulous.

We went here for a confirmation meal, the staff were really friendly, we had a couple of relaxing drinks and were then shown to the dining room. The table was set beautifully with fresh daffodils on the table. The children were giving a little bag with colours and books. Big baskets of bread and rolls were brought to the table, the meal itself was beautiful, everybody was asked did they want more, the only problem I had was it was a little cold and I wasn't the only one to comment on this.

The little touches made this perfect, soft towels in the bathroom etc.

Well worth it!

Just returned from a weekend at Hotel Minella and have to say it was excellent - we had a suite which was amazing, service was absolutely first class and the food was brilliant. I cannot fault any aspect of our stay and would highly recommend this hotel - it is very rare nowadays to find everything of such a consistent high standard. The staff were very welcoming and helpful and certainly gave us the impression they were happy to work there and nothing was too much trouble for them. Thank you for a lovely weekend. We will hopefully be back at some time and will definitely highly recommend.

Great hotel - 6 of us stayed recently. Check in was friendly and efficient, rooms were really clean, lovely and bright and very comfortable. We had a meal included in the deal and I have to say - it was absolutely fantastic. Great choice on the menu, steak cooked to perfection and the dessert trolley is a joy to behold. The girls working in the restaurant were great too - friendly and well informed of the menu. The pool was a good length, clean and the showers nice and warm. I tell you why I dropped the rating - the bar area leaves a lot to be desired. Its fairly dull and on a Saturday night there was absolutely no atmosphere at all. A juke box or some music would have helped greatly, but I suppose that's a personal preference. The Minella is a fantastic hotel - I'd have no hesitation in recommending.
