Travelled with family
Liked: Cleanliness, amenities
I imagine this is an excellent property for a wedding function or a business conference. It is a grand, beautiful building and looked lovely with the avenue of trees all lit up at night. The bar/restaurant was extremely lively each evening, packed with guests and locals. As a guest at the hotel, it was not possible to book a table for food and drinks, despite requesting this earlier in the day. This was disappointing and since the bar/restaurant was so busy, when we went to eat dinner we were told we would have to wait in the lounge area until a table became free. The staff in the restaurant/bar managed really well (Dervla was excellent) despite being run off their feet.The food was excellent and quick to arrive once we were finally given a table. Because we were not able to book a table in our hotel (it was busy every night) we decided to eat elsewhere for the rest of our break. I really think that guests at the hotel should be given the opportunity to book a table at the hotel restaurant. Our room was lovely, clean and well serviced each day. The beds were comfortable and the room spacious.
