Reviewed 20 February 2014

We called in for a late lunch and were pleased to see the renovation work which has been carried out since our last visit. The work has been carried out sympathetically and maintains the character of the building.

We enjoyed a light lunch, well presented and reasonably priced. the staff were most accommodating and when we expressed an interest n the hotel we were given a tour of the facilities. Highly recommended.

We have stayed a number of times at this hotel over the past ten years or so. We were a little hesitant to stay there again a our last previous stay had been very disappointing. However we were pleasantly surprised to see that the new owner has started a huge refurbishment project and the hotel is having a very impressive make over.
We stayed at the hotel at the beginning of February 2014. Our room was at the far end of the hotel and was one that had recently been refurbished. It was very pleasant and comfortable although the bed was a little uncomfortable.
We had dinner which was nice although the menu looks like it has not been altered in quite a while and there was not a great deal to choose from. Previously we have had exceptional food here.
All in all we had a lovely pleasant stay. This is a work in progress and I am sure this hotel will soon be back to its former glory. With plans to repair the old Chainbridge over the river this will be spectacular.

Thank you for your positive review of your recent stay at The Chainbridge. I'm very glad that the changes we have made to date were well received, and that you enjoyed your stay. Of course there is more for us to do which we will continue to work towards, as we strive to make the hotel a more special and pleasant place to eat, drink and stay.

We agree, with the planned refurbishment of the bridge, the hotel will provide an even more spectacular backdrop for guests to enjoy.

We hope to see you again,

Kind regards
Seamus

We were treated to a lovely time in the Chainbridge Hotel. The service was excellent, the food was delicious and the views were breathtaking. The river was mesmerizing from the room balcony and the restauraunt. We were lucky enough to avoid the rain and got out on some lovely walks and a trip on the steam train. We would highly recommend this hotel!

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. The river is amazing, could sit there looking at it for hours particularly with the hotel right on the river so you can view it from your room, bar our restaurant. The staff are friendly and helpful and the food was of a good quality. There's a number of walks from the hotel, we walked along the cansl into the charming town, taking about 30mins.

This hotel is in possibly one of the most picturesque locations in the UK. I stayed here 4 years ago and was looking forward to returning to see how the hotel renovations were progressing.

You cannot fail to be impressed by the stunning riverside location. The hotel has all of its public areas facing the river. Wi-fi is available in the bar area, however mobile phone signal is non-existant, and reception staff do a sterling job of organising taxis etc. The reception area is entirely new, and much more welcoming then before. The bar area is modern and the lounges are modern yet classical in appearance. The hotel has a good library, should you want to while away your days reading by the riverside.

We had a large room on the first floor. The bed was comfortable, there was ample storage, sofa, excellent tea tray, and the furnished balcony overlooking the river. My only criticism about the room is that hairdryers are not provided, and the sockets where I could plug one in were no where near the mirror (bad hair day!). There is also nowhere to hang towels other than over the bathroom door to dry. These didn't in any way detract from our stay.

We ate in the restaurant both nights of our stay. Meals are average price, but exceptional quality. The menu is well thought out, there is an excellent choice of lunches and evening meals available and there is a specials menu each day. There is a moderate wine list, but something for everyone.

Breakfast was buffet style one day and serve the following day. This is depending on number of guests, but again, choice and quality could not be faulted.

Renovations continue to progress. There are plans to renovate the Chainbridge this year, which should do nothing but enhance the business.

Room Tip: The River Dee is a raging torrent outside the front of the hotel and can be heard through the galzin...

Thank you very much for your positive review of your time here at The Chainbridge. We agree with you as to how incredible our location is, we are lucky enough to enjoy it every day and never get tired of it.

We're delighted that the improvements we have made to the hotel since your last visit have been well received, and also appreciate the comments you make that will enable us to further improve. For your next stay, you should know that we do have hairdryers in Reception available for guests, but sadly when we put them in the bedrooms a number of them went 'missing'.

We were very pleased by your comments regarding the quality of the food - both breakfasts and evening meals - and we're happy that your overall stay was a success.

We hope to welcome you back in the future.

Kind regards
Seamus

Stayed over here for first time and was very pleased with the room and the hotel in general.
Hotel is undergoing some renovations but our room which was on riverside with a balcony seemed to have been finished and was lovely.
Very clean room, comfortable bed etc.
Reception staff were friendly as was the young girl in the restaurant.
Had evening meal and breakfast in restaurant which I couldn't fault at all.
Plenty of room to sit in the evening in the bar/lounge area.
Visit has changed my previous opinion. Recommended.

Room Tip: Riverside balcony room. Room 21 lovely!
