It is sad that such a great 19th century country house is being allowed to decay to the extent that it has. The exterior of the hotel and the room that we were allocated are in dire need of an upgrade. The room itself had soiled carpeting and could use a major facelift in terms of décor. The room was found to be cold at night (with no available thermostat) and when this issue was reported to the front desk there was no attempt to rectify the matter. There was no wifi available in the room and when questioned "why?" the staff responded that "it was being fixed." I imagine installing routers in the corridors is a difficult solution to grasp. Don't bother to watch television in the room - there are only three stations available although they are duplicated many times on various channels. Staff were found to be somewhat pleasant although the night manager was found to be rude and intolerant. Staff knowledge of basic directions and local geography/points of interest was also poor. Of note, the pool and exercise equipment is located in a separate building which is also utilized by the general public. On a bright note, the morning breakfast was found to be quite good and reasonably priced with many selections to choose from. Overall, I would recommend the d Hotel over the Boyne Valley Hotel and Country Club as the cost is comparable and the accommodation/service is far superior.
