We stopped in at this hotel on a trip back to Dublin. The carpark can be a little annoying to some I would guess having to get a shuttle back and forth but we walked up and back to the hotel as it was a fine day and its only a few minutes walk.
For me though I am a sucker for afternoon tea and sample this in most hotels I visit. This was most definitely not reflective of a good experience and I was really disappointed having heard some fantastic reviews on the place. The service and staff were lovely, we had a really nice waitress who looked after our order. The afternoon tea itself was boring, bland and let my view of the hotel down. The sandwiches were plain ham and butter, salmon and butter and cucumber and butter. A little chutney, marie rose dressing, red onion marmalade or even a simple wholegrain mustard could have livened these up completely. The scones were fine, served with cream and preserves so no complaints here. The pastries were awful, and quite evidently bought in. There was a mini cheesecake, a small brownie and a sort of truffle are the most I can remember. For me it looked as those they were the remnants of a wedding assiette dessert and not the assorted French pastries they advertise as to serving. I may be wrong but a brownie and a cheesecake don't constitute the delights from a French patisserie in my book.
