Stayed in one of the deluxe rooms 'the ditches' for 2 nights. The room was beautiful and extremely comfortable with a view to die for. Dined in the bar both nights which was quite pricey and portions weren't really substantial for the price. Staff were lovely in the bar especially Cormac who was extremely polite and professional but not in your face.
The swimming pool in the spa was lovely but as mentioned by another contributor, there were a lot of unsupervised children. The spa was completely booked up the two days we were there which was a major let down as the spa was one of the main reasons we picked this hotel. If we had been told in advance that we would have to book early, it would have been so much better.
All in all a lovely stay just make sure to ring ahead if you're hoping for a massage.
