“Thanks to the staff...”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 February 2013

As a family we visited Hotel Minella for a 60th Birthday celebration. The staff went out of there way to make the weekend special for us. From making a cake, personalised menus, lovely table decor, giving champagne and upgrading my family to a suite. Everyone is polite and want to help. Thank you Hotel Minella staff. Worth the visit for the extra special attention!
The hotel itself is nice. We did expect a little more luxury for a Manor House Hotel but we cant complain. The food was very nice in the restaurant and there was plenty of it! Breakfast was lovely and plentiful. They cater for all tastes. Basic rooms were nice. The upgrade to the suite was wonderful, beautiful luxurious room. However we were disappointed the outdoor hot tub on the balcony was out of service. The leisure centre was ok, the exercise equipment was a little dated but all was in working order. We were disappointed there was not a proper spa. All in all a nice time spent.

Room Tip: The upgrade to a suite is well worth the extra. Just make sure the hot tub on the balcony is in work...

Recently i visited this hotel for a meal in the restaurant. I was disapointed overall, the meal was overpriced, the food served was OK, service needs to improve , there was a mix and match of cutlery on the table and compared to similar hotels for dinner i have being to The Minella Hotel is way behind and needs to improve to compete .Would not rush back there for a meal.

On arriving to hotel Minella we were delighted thinking we would have a lovely stay in a swish hotel. we got to our room only to discover there was dead blue bottles all along the window and balcony door. we did get the room cleaned while we went for dinner but when we turned on our air conditioning more alive blue bottles appeared everywhere. we were up half the night swatting them. i was disgusted that they could charge €140 per night and not even clean the room before we got there. also the next day we copped alot of attitude from a man working at the hotel about bringing a bottle of wine into our room. we are not unruly and made no noise but this man insisted on being as rude and arrogant as possible to us. i was under the impression that if you are staying in a hotel its nobodys business what you do in your room. we will never stay there again nor will any of our friends.

I had my wedding reception in Minella and I couldn't speak more highly of John and his wife. They made our day all the more special by the homely down to earth service they provided. The food was fantastic and there were no shortages. At all times during the meal the staff walked around asking if our guests wanted more veg,meat etc.. They were engaging,polite and respectful. The grounds were fabulous and perfect for photographs. I would recommend hotel Minella to anyone who is looking for a wonderful setting,wonderful staff and most importantly as a place you will remember that contributed to your special day.

Have just returned from a two night stay at Minella.This was our third visit to Clonmel,as its only one and a half hour drive from Wexford,and is a pretty town.It has been about two years since we last stayed in Minella and i wondered if standards would still be the same.I need not of worried as hotel is still run very very well,excellant staff and welcome very warm.Had dinner one night in hotel as part of package,food still great,and lovely cosy dining room,with attentive staff.Having worked in the hotel business my self many years ago,i always find that family run hotels like the Minella offer a much warmer welcome in general.Well done Minella,keep up the good work.

The rooms at the Minella were the largest I have ever had touring Europe - they were airy and spacious, and the views from the balcony were stunning. The resturant had a good range of meals and wine - a intimate atmosphere - and the breakfasts were of a high standard, indeed. I would recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a holiday to unwind, and will certainly be returning. I was impressed.

Room Tip: Ask for a balcony
