We booked and stayed here for the second leg of our honeymoon in November. Although we enjoyed our time here I'm afraid I have mixed feelings on this one however.
positives - bar staff very friendly and kind to my daughter, food really lovely, beautiful location and grounds, clean and staff at leisure centre extremely nice and helpful. Their afternoon tea also was an amazing experience - they done the whole works with more than enough sandwiches, scones, desserts etc.
However we felt dissapointed on our particular trip because although we stated it was our honeymoon when booking and paid an additional €40 for an upgrade to the 'deluxe room' we did not feel that there was anything particularly special about our room - despite double checking on arrival that it was in fact a deluxe room - The bathroom was one of the smallest I have ever encountered, the bed was a double, and the view was restricted - we would not describe this as 'deluxe'. Nor did we receive an acknowledgement or gesture of any description to mark our special trip - having just come from a hotel where we received congratulations from every member of staff and special treats at dinner as well as a treat on arrival to our room this was a huge let down for us.
Other things to note - decor in places is a bit tired, lesuire centre in need of repairs and updating, although barmen and food lovely the service was slow and at times it was hard get the attention of a staff member.
