Living on their laurels
Don’t waste your hard earned cash ......there are better country house hotels in Ireland.
Having visited this house hotel in the past and enjoyed it, the place is now very tired and the lack of staff was very obvious.
The food was average to say the least both for evening dinner and breakfast. In fact the breakfast was served cold and under cooked.
Service was poor, we had to ask for the obvious like toast, milk and butter and had to wait at least 10 mins for it to arrive.
Management were not around to check on guests, the food or general conditions of the hotel.
The hallway was unclean when we arrived and was not cleaned the next morning by noon.
Our be room was poorly equipped with not bottled water , no dressing gowns or slippers, the TV was as old as myself and the size of a small fridge and this was a deluxe room! I can’t imagine what the standard room would have been like.
The overall experience was very poor and I would say that neither my wife or myself would ever cross the threshold of this place again.
On our departure there was no one to speak to about our concerns.
Talk about living on your laurels they certainly are doing so here !!
