I stayed here in January with my husband and dog. We chose the 'Danby Lodge' purposely because it was one of the few places that would actually allow us to keep our dog with us….Ireland is not exactly dog welcoming / friendly!!
We struggled to get into the 'chalet' as it was very dark and there were no outside lights to assist us with finding the keyhole…which proved a challenge to open! Once inside we were greeted with utter coldness…..the room was very, very cold…..despite the heating being on. Clearly the room had not been checked beforehand otherwise surely the temperature of the room would have been picked up.
Fortunately we had a couple of throws in the car which we used to cover us in addition to the duvet for the night! However, once in bed we were soon alerted to the fact that the headboard was very noisy….when my husband checked the headboard he found that it was completely free of the bed and wall and was being 'held in place' by a couple of rolled up towels…..so…..someone must have known about this problem beforehand!
My husband went to hang his jacket inside the wardrobe and was surprised….or not….to find an extremely mouldy sandwich on the top shelf! hence we did not use the wardrobe that night!
The last thing was the shower which after my husband used it I then stepped into it only to find the tray still full of water…..it was struggling to drain away as I suspect there was a blockage!
I don't think any of the above moans are too picky as the least you would hope to expect from a 'Best Western' is basic hygiene ….isn't it?? and it doesn't come cheap by the time they have added on their extra 20 Euros for the privilege of having your dog share your cold room with you!
Would I stay here again??……….absolutely not….I would rather share the car with my dog for the night!
