Nice hotel

Pros: Spa
Cons: Food
Lovely hotel close to Dunboyne . Went to the spa to use the pool jacuzzi and steam room which was good €10 charge per room for duration of stay. Negative was we had to wait 20 minutes for a seat for breakfast which was disappointing. Very close to Dunboyne town and easily walkable in 5 minutes

Quiet location - close to village

Pros: Quiet
Cons: Bathroom
The reception is very pleasant and was received with a warm welcome. The room was ok, however the bathroom needs updating. Having eaten at the bar, the food was good but the service was very slow. Staff were apologetic about it, but if i had to stay again, I would probably visit one of the local restaurants which are only a 5/10 minute walk away

Valentines break

The hotel was lovely. Very welcoming staff and great music in the Cellar Bar on the Saturday night. Spa was fab and massage was top class. Unfortunately, breakfast was a let down. Black pudding was inedible and the sliced bread was still frozen. Apart from the breakfast, fab stay!

Perfection

If you want a comfortable room, great food, excellent surroundings, attentive staff and the best leisure facilities....look no further, one of the very few hotels I have ever been to (and I've been to more than a few over the years) that combines everything perfectly...very rare these days
