Beautiful hotel, great stay, fantastic food. The only downside is the bathroom door in the room consists of double doors which are very difficult to close, they have to be banged closed, and leave a gap between them so you can hear everything

Fair 4.0
v disappointing response to complaint
Arrived late on Friday after travelling from Galway. Noisy Xmas party in swing by reception . Went to room which seemed to be directly over the function room. I could have joined in the singing it was so loud. Complained to v nice apologetic manager. Breakfast next day - paid extra but no one took order just buffet . Raised my complaints at checkout again - nothing . No reduction . I feel some recompense , meal or even bottle of water would have been an acknowledgment . Just suck it up seems the attitude . Poor when I’ve stayed a lot , as have extended family .

Very Good 8.0
I agree with toiletries being replaced by permanent fixtures, but to claim that having no daily papers is to be more environmentally friendly is ludicrous. Nothing about the power used to check the papers online.
