they know how to pour a great guinness, & that is worth stopping in for!, the staff were really great, until the morning & nobody was around to check us out & then they didnt seem to know how too.
also the spa pool wasnt working, & that was something we were looking forward to using after a long day of travel, & we still had to pay full rate.
the rooms are really nice, & great bathrooms too. we did get moved from our original room, & given some odd excuse about the bathroom, but with the noise from the staff in the adjoining dinning area, i suspect they wanted us further from their little shindig, which was thoughtful of them to move us, but they were still rather loud.
i'd still go back here, but i think i'd check to make sure everything was in working order prior to booking.
the food was nothing to brag about, but its a good pub meal, in a historic pub... & did i mention the guinness?
