“Lovely hotel”
Reviewed May 27, 2013

Second time we have stayed here. Rooms are well decorated spacious and clean. Staff very pleasant and helpful. Breakfast was good but not outstanding. When checking in I mentioned I was going shopping to McElheneys the girl at reception said as we were staying at hotel we could have voucher for ten percent off in shop which came in handy.

Room Tip: I was on the first floor.It was quiet and i slept soundly

We had my best friend's hen weekend in Villa Rose last weekend and we couldn't have asked for a better weekend. The staff are so accommodating and went over and above what they needed to do to make our stay just perfect. Food and facilities are fabulous. It was a brilliant weekend and we are so appreciative to all the staff for helping us make happy memories for the bride to be. Thanks again for everything Villa Rose. We are thinking up of good excuses to plan another girlie spa weekend very soon. :)

Stayed here over the May Bank holiday with my wife and we had a fantastic break. Arrived on a Saturday afternoon and were made most welcome when we checked in by the friendly and efficient reception staff. Our room was on the second floor and was a 'corner' room with different views from both windows. Room was clean and spotless as was the en-suite, free wifi with an excellent strength and complementary bottles of Ballygowan water were an unexpected bonus and most welcome. Went off to explore the town for a while including visiting McElhinneys impressive store and arrived back a little peckish and ready to eat. There was a rather large wedding party starting to gather and we decided to wander over to 'Fara's Restaurant ' which is the main restaurant for guests.
We were met and seated quickly and orders taken for drinks and starters, I had the chilli beef nachos and my wife had the chowder. Both arrived fairly promptly and the plates had also been heated, the chowder was perfect as were the nachos. The restaurant was fairly well full and the service seemed to be in full flow with all sorts of appetizing and wonderfully aromatic dishes emerging from the kitchen. I had the fillet steak and trimmings for the main and my wife had the chicken steak combo all of which were cooked to perfection and exactly as ordered. My goodness it was so good and really filling we really were struggling to find space for a sweet. However I decided to push for it and ordered a choc mint cheesecake, maybe not the best choice as it was set for too long and had a heavy pasty texture to it. We went off for a few drinks in the town after that and arrived back late, a two piece group were playing in the bar which was busy, but as they were'nt great we sat in the foyer and eventually retired for the night, Breakfast in the morning was a busy affair and again served in Fara's , superb and enjoyable service again. Overall impression was that this family run business is well run and judging by the number of guests and talking to them, ticking all the right boxes for people. By the way the large wedding that was on, we had a perfect nights sleep with no hassle.
Thank you All at the Villa Rose, we really enjoyed our stay, appreciated the effort made by the staff and hope that we can get back again some time.

Just got back from my stay in the hotel for 3 nights as I had a family wedding and have to say that it is a great hotel. The staff are very welcoming and helpful and also the rooms are very clean and are cleaned every day. The breakfast is very good too and also the dinner as it is well priced and the food is fresh and delicious! I have nothing bad to say about this hotel but everything for me was very positive!

Room Tip: My room was on the 1st floor and it was very quiet. There is also free wifi so you can ask at recept...
