We stayed at the Creighton hotel for two nights last weekend...24th/25th September.
We were in Clones for a sad occasion as we had come as a family from Dublin, Kildare, Wexford and Wicklow to spread my father-in- laws ashes in his hometown.
Myself, my husband, two daughters and a friend stayed at the Creighton hotel.
I have to say that the staff at the Creighton are among the nicest and most accomodating people I have met in any hotel I have stayed in.
I have stayed in hotels all over the world, many of them 5 star and I have never been treated with such courtesy and kindness as I found at the Creighton. It made all the difference to us as a family in view of the reason for our visit to Clones. The hotel itself is homely and the room was clean and well appointed for a small hotel.
As I have said our whole family was in Clones and all staying at different hotels, bed and breakfasts etc and I had the idea that it would be nice if we could all meet up for dinner on Saturday night. I suggested eating at our hotel, the Creighton, which was agreed on.
I returned to the Creighton at 5.30 pm and asked one of the staff if they could cater for us all for dinner at 9pm. I wasn't too hopeful as there were 25 of us and only 2 members of staff working!
I was told it was no problem and not only were we catered for but the staff opened up the dining room for us which allowed us to eat in private as a family. I thought that was a lovely gesture and it was very much appreciated. There was no fuss and the staff worked so hard to ensure we had a lovely meal. I have to say the food was very good and everybody was satisfied and complimentary to the staff and poor chef!
The food was well presented and I think I had the most enormous chicken cordon bleu I have ever seen! There wasn't one complaint from any of the family about the food which believe me is a huge compliment as from past experience I know how fussy some of them can be!
To finish up all I can say is that the Creighton hotel leaves many other hotels, including some 5 stars, lacking in wholesome warmth and good hospitality. I felt the staff actually cared and it's a long time since I have felt such a warm and genuine welcome in any hotel both in Ireland and abroad. Well done Creighton hotel and many, many thanks for your kindness and unbelievable hospitality. Maria Boylan.
