Set in lovely grounds, this hotel is a little gem. From the moment you walk in there is a charm and ambiance that invites you in. The staff were all very friendly and helpful. Martin at the desk promptly sorted out a minor issue with our room - followed up by a drink on the house from Billy to apologise for the mix-up. A very nice gesture.
We were staying for two nights with our 7 year old. The first night we ate in the bar - really lovely food (fish and chips for other half; Cajun chicken in pitta for me and chicken goujons for our son) - lovely presentation and very tasty.
Breakfast is buffet with a very good range of hot (full Irish breakfast) and cold / continental food.
The room was a family room - plenty of room, comfortable very large bed.
The second night we ate in the restaurant - although as the food was so good in the bar, we contemplated eating in the bar again. However, we were delighted we chose the restaurant. The food is excellent. Beautiful presentation, very well cooked (I had lamb; other half had beef medallions), we cleaned the plates!! Well priced at €32.50 for three courses of very good food. Wine was a decent Shiraz at €26.
The Solas Croi Spa attached to the hotel is a real treat and recommended - but book in advance as they are quite busy. The treatment rooms are a very good size and the Spa is high end, with a thermal suite.
Location of the hotel is good, just outside New Ross and within an easy drive to coastal towns such as Tramore and Dungarvan and to the fabulous Wexford beaches - Curracloe was the one we visited.
So all in all a lovely hotel, well run, nice staff, lovely atmosphere, super food. Sure what more would you want!!
