Stayed in the FInnstown House Hotel for one night this weekend. I don't think I would go back. Myself and my boyfriend stayed here courtesy of a Christmas present from my family. While some parts of the hotel were lovely, particulary the drawing room where we had drinks, other parts were not so great. The room where we stayed which was across the road from the hotel was completely outdated. It was clean however it badly needs to be renovated. Curtains, tv, bathroom, kitchenette part all look like they have been there for a few hundred years!! Not quite the luxury we were expecting.
We were really excited about relaxing in the swimming pool in the afternoon but I have to say that it was such a let down. I couldnt bring myself to have a shower in the changing rooms after, I left that until I went back to my room because the showers looked so unappealing there. The pool area is so shabby, its like a shed. The "turkish baths" was simply a steam room which didnt work properly . Spent ten mins in there instead of the planned hour as it was so awful.
Had lovely meal in the bar Saturday night however the staff were a little all over the place. When I asked what the catch of the day was the waiter said "I dont have a clue I've just been sent up here!!"....and he didnt bother to go and find out!!!
The breakfast staff were very friendly although the breakfast was very messy. A wedding party from the previous night were very loud and intoxicated so it was hard to relax and enjoy the food.
Its a pity really coz the hotel itself could be fab
