Stayed here for one night at the end of May after a receiving a great last minute deal. The drive into the hotel and the grounds were very impressive. When we unloaded our bags a guy greeted us at the front door and took our bags. Reception staff were extremely efficient and friendly (offered hot face towels at this point to freshen up).
We had a double room to the front of the hotel magnificent views of the Gap of Dunloe! The room was beautiful decorated with a huge TV, fridge, bath and a very comfortable bed. We also had a large balcony which was lovely to sit out in, in the sunshine. While we were gone to dinner our duvet was turned down and a weather report for the next day and two chocolates were left by the bed (nice touch).
Nice pool, steam room and sauna with hundreds of spare towels! (Could to with a hot tub though). Beautiful walks around the grounds and a nice playground for the kids. Pony trekking is offered for free at the hotel, we didn’t avail of this but we walked to the stables to see the gorgeous horses.! There is also a games room in the hotel with pool table etc and a large indoor tennis court.
Loads of choice for breakfast including a buffet breakfast, which tasted fantastic. Staff in the morning were very nice and there was beautiful views from the breakfast room.
Would highly recommend this hotel for a luxury relaxing break away.
