We arrived friday 28 of june to stay one night , we got this night stay as a gift , we were all really looking forward to going and to our horror there was nothing nice about this place at all ,we had three rooms booked 301 303 and 304 , the smell of must in the rooms was really bad i no that its an old house , room 303 had a bad smell of sewage which meant we could not use it and the ladies had to use camp beds in other two rooms , room 304 was filthy valance sheet was not ironed and very badly stained have never seen anything like in any hotel i have stayed in , the bathroom tiles were cracked paint coming of ceiling , bar man was very rude , ladies that served breakfast were very pleasant that is the only good comment i would have to say about this hotel and i use the word hotel loosely , breakfast was not good , great hotel across the road we had dinner there.

Just booked our wedding here for next June. From my first email to booking the wedding I found this hotel to be friendly and very efficient. We met with Stuart and from the moment we met him we found him to be very friendly and approachable. He explained everything to us in detail and showed us around. He definitely sold it for us with his honesty and friendliness. We had our show around and cake back 2 hours later to sign the contracts cause we loved the place and did not want to miss out as the package we booked is being snapped up.
Can't wait for the day cause I can tell it's going to be perfect with Stuart looking after us.

We spent one night here for our anniversary. Was absolutely lovely, very warm and the staff could not do enough. Had dinner and drinks and they were excellent. I'm a fussy eater and am always nervous about asking for things as sometimes staff can get a bit rude about it, had no problems here the staff were so nice and made every effort they could to accommodate me. Have booked my wedding here for 2015 and cannot wait for it, have heard nothing but great things about this hotel. Our wedding planner Stuart has been so accommodating and helpful to assist with every detail of our wedding. Couldn't fault this hotel at all... Role on 2015 :-)

I was there for 4 nights in May, 2013 on business. The facilities are rather old and some modern amenities are lacking, but the staff was responsive to my requests and the breakfast was great. There is no elevator, and only a tiny TV in the room. The bathroom only has a shower but no bathtub, and the sink has separate hot and cold water faucets, which made it rather difficult to get water at a decent temperature for washing. My biggest issue was that there are no temperature controls in the room. and there was no heat at night even though it got rather chilly. One night I woke up really cold and had to call the front desk to have them turn it on, which they did. The free wifi access came in handy, but it was very slow.

We spent 3 nights in the hotel on a business trip and we had a great time. The staff are welcoming, friendly and helpful. We stayed in room 205 which was large and comfortable - apart from a big bed there was enough space for a desk to do work and a couple of arm chairs plus coffee table. Breakfast was plentiful - I couldn't manage a full breakfast but I enjoyed scrambled eggs with smoked salmon and a bowl of fresh fruit salad.
There is a comfortable lounge which serves afternoon tea.
The hotel has a restaurant which was full every evening - a good sign. It is frequented by people from the town as well as residents of the hotel. They offered a two course meal plus wine for less than Euro 20.00 - there was a good choice, the portions were generous (no space for a dessert).
This is not a luxury hotel - it is clean, it is comfortable, the staff cannot do enough for you - it is the place you look forward to come back to after a day in the office.
It takes less than 15 minutes by taxi to get to the technology park - no stress re: traffic jams !
There is a bus stop close by (less than 10 mins walk) which offers a frequent bus service into Dublin (it takes about 50 mins). We would come back anytime.
Just one consideration: we had to climb stairs to get to our room - which was no problem for us, it may be difficult if you have problems walking.

Room Tip: Room 205 is great - enough space to do work, plus two arm chairs to relax.

We recently had our wedding reception at Leixlip House Hotel and the service we received was second to none. Stuart O'Connor, the food and beverage manager, gave an outstanding service, he was so easy to deal with on the run up to and on the day of our wedding, nothing was too much trouble, he was always on top of things, he said he would look after everything for us and was so true to his word, really putting us at ease. The hotel itself was lovely, the food there is always outstanding and the staff, polite, friendly and willing to help. The rooms were really nice and comfortable. We would have no hesitation in recommending Leixlip House, Stuart or the staff at Leixlip house to anyone, whether you are looking for somewhere to hold your wedding reception or just looking for great food and superb accommodation.
