Very quite hotel in a large park like setting. The rooms are very nicely furnished and an suite.The bathrooms where spotles.
It is a good base for walking and hiking. The staff is very efficient and multi lingual. Elizabeth the owner is very helpful in all aspects of tourisem. We had breakfast and dinner at the restaurant.
the meals where exceptional and the wine selection outstanding for a Irish hotel.

Room Tip: All rooms are equaly good.

Spent a relaxing weekend, family of 5 with 3 teenagers. Nice bedrooms and ambience. Breakfast was excellent. Leisure centre is excellent. They also have holiday cottages with access to leisure centre. Would recommend it as a relaxing hotel, from the front of the hotel you can see cows in the field and from the back the River Suir. We had dinner in the weekend room rate and it was good. The hotel is walkable to Clonmel and we went for a walk into town and it was really nice to take in the river. The value was unbeatable, such a peaceful location, unlike most hotels I stay in for business or pleasure ( are there have been loads ) not often i say this, but we will be back.

Nestled between Cahir, Kilkenny and Waterford, Clonmel is the perfect option to relax at night (or day!) but still an easy commute to the more touristy sights. The Minella Hotel with its incredible staff made our 3 night stay an amazing experience. The food and service were first class all the way. Love the beautiful property with its very comfortable bar and public rooms, but if the weather permits, outside by the River Suir is the perfect setting for a quiet read.
Everyone in our party had nothing but good to say. A very well run property with attentive staff has me checking availability for next year already!

Recently stayed overnight in this lovely hotel and had a great time. Our room, the Jacuzzi Room, was spacious and had views on two sides, one ecross the gardens to the leisure centre in the distance and the other overlooking the River Suir through the most amazing and most certainly inhabited tree. It must be five or six floors high and a mass of branches. So that's the room and the bathroom has a jacuzzi as the name suggests. Bed is huge and very comfortable.
The leisure centre is top notch with large Jacuzzi and a Canadian hot tub outside overlooking the river. Note owners: Cut out the straggly trees to provide better views of river.
We decided to eat in the hotel and left the bar at half eight to go down to dinner. (With such a fabulous aspect over the river a restaurant on the top floor would have been spectacular). Anyway, to the time warp. We were spirited somehow to the late 1970's. The menu included Fan of Melon, Vegetable soup, Vol au vents, Chicken Maryland and even the legendary sherry trifle. Shocking and all part of a mandatory 3 course plus tea/ coffee for €35 per head.
Back in the real world in the morning we ventured to the breakfast room with some trepidation. There was no need to worry breakfast was superb clean and modern. Nothing was overlooked, even the orange juice was freshly squeezed in front of us. Well done.
Verdict:
A lovely place to stay and will definitely go again but will take a short taxi ride into town to Casa Befani for dinner. Otherwise hotel is the biz.

Room Tip: Opt for a named room as you get a bigger floor space and better aspect.

My retired party of 41 recycled teenagers made a visit to Clonmel Co.Tipperery and stayed at the Hotel Minella. What a Brilliant Week we had. Relaxing and Cared for by the Staff and Management, A first class welcome and service, Clean well appointed rooms , gardends and lawns manicured to perfection and nice Spa facility.
A menue to delight and meals to savour, A true warm Irish welocome from our Celtic Cousins.
Full marks to the Nallon Family who run the Hotel Minella, We are preparing for the next trip,
We certainly will return,
The friendly people of Clonmel and our fellow retired PROBUS group made for a memorable week, The coach driver on his first Ireland Tour conentedhe had travelled extensivelyin Europe and the UK,and the Minella was with the best he had visited. Complement assured
I certainly recomend,

Myself and my husband were guests at the minella for a friends wedding. Everything about the hotel makes it a perfect venue for a wedding party. There is plenty of space to mingle. The grounds leading down to the river suir are perfect and well maintained and a fabulous backdrop for wedding photos. The room decorations and lighting is very classy with beautiful flower arrangements and table centre pieces. John and Liz (the owners) run a very efficient hotel and the dinner service ran like clockwork. The waitresses and waiters do a brilliant job. The food is first class, particularly the beef deserves a mention as it is so tender. Desserts are to die for especially the baileys and toblerone cheesecake. We had a brilliant time at the hotel and would highly recommend to any couple who are looking for a wedding venue. You will be looked after 100 percent in this hotel.
