Our second visit to Ashford and depending on how pricey it gets after the refurbishments, would love to return. This hotel is a gem and I hope the upgrade does not spoil the charm.
The work taking place took away from the overall experience this time compared to last and it is evident that the hotel is going through a period of transition. Service whilst still better than you would get elsewhere was not quite as tip top as our first visit.
The bar is comfortable with excellent staff and drawing room smart although not as cosy as the bar. The George V dining room is splendid but dinner is overpriced and the food in the village was disappointing this visit. However after breakfast you wont want to eat for most of the day! Superb breakfast buffet and menu options available, try the peppered mackerel.
The setting is fantastic, make sure you do the corrib lake cruise.
