      • Couple
        7.0

        Friendly and obliging staff. Atomospheric and relaxed with unique dining experience.

        Bar was very poor. Big round tables and one TV with no pay per view sport channels. Missed soccer, rugby, golf and was not even showing Galway in hurling final. Seemed to be just another area to serve food.

      • Family with children
        9.2

        Fantastic service. Food was top class.

        Decor a little dated. No gym or cardio facilities in a 5-star rated hotel.

      • Older travelers

        silver service and beverages brought to the room. Also the view from our bedroom

      • Group of friends
        8.8

        A very friendly and helpful staff with very nice facilities and grounds. It had a rich, warm atmosphere.

        The Oriental Express restaurant was somewhat overpriced and lacking in quality.

      • Couple
        6.6

        The staff were friendly and very attentive. The food in the Pullman restaurant was lovely and the breakfast was also very nice.

        I wouldn't regard this as a 5 star hotel. To be honest I was disappointed when we got to our room. The decor in the room itself was lovely but the bathroom had tiles falling away from the bath and I though it was very basic bathroom you would find in any hotel. There were rips in the sheets on the bed. I just was expecting something extra special as it was our first stay in a 5 star hotel but apart from the attentive staff I found nothing to distinguish it from anywhere I've stayed in before.,

        friendly staff

        noisy: a wedding was happening in the hotel and we could hear the music late at night. The breackfast was not to a 5 stars hotel standard andlots of insects were flying around the ceiling lights...

      • Older travelers
        8.8

        The staff were friendly and attentive and couldn't do enough for you. The atmosphere was quiet and relaxing. The service was top drawer. The attention to the customer was an obvious priority. We were made feel welcome and special.

        The menu in the Oak Bar was limited. A little more attention could have been paid to the little things like dust and cobwebs. The River Room and Pullman Restaurants were only available on certain days. Nothing to put me off going back.

        Everything was simply wonderful! Went for my Wife's Birthday....Upgraded to 'Beautiful' suite, champagne and fresh fruit waiting in room on arrival. Pullman restaurant....Brilliant! Breakfast - Superb! Lovely Hotel with Lovely Staff....will definately return in the near future!

      • Couple

        The staff was wonderful during our visit, and the hotel grounds were majestic.

      • Older travelers
        10.0

        The setting was fantastic, the staff exceedingly pleasant and the quiet atmosphere most appreciated.

        I wish there were no children at the hotel.
