i spent 2 nights at knockranny in july.
the hotel is in a beautiful location but our room looked into an internal courtyard and the bathroom was only average (looked a bit grotty for a 4 star). beds were comfy and room was a good size. our 3year old stayed with us and a single bed was provided.
food was good overall but we had to wait over 20 mins to be seated at breakfast and there was no bread or pastries left at the buffet. service was very slow at the 3 meals we had there and staff seemed disorganised- buffet not replenished, tables were not being reset quickly enough and coffee etc took an age to arrive.
another major gripe i had was that children are not allowed use the pool at the hotel and must go to a sister hotel to use the leisure centre there. the receptionist told me it was a "two minute" walk to the other hotel (castlecourt) when in fact it took at least ten minutes to walk there - not fun with a toddler and bags of swim gear. i would not recommend the hotel to families with young children for this reason.
