“comfortable short stay”
Reviewed 3 March 2013

We stayed for two nights at end February, whilst attending a wedding at another venue. The hotel was very pleasant with friendly and helpful staff at reception, restaurant and bar. Our room was reasonably spacious with a comfortable large double bed, usual fittings and nice bathroom suite. Room was a bit too warm on arrival but we just turned down the radiator valve, which solved the problem. My wife had the full Irish breakfast, which she enjoyed, whilst I had the continental buffet - juices, cereals, jams, toast etc - which was quite adequate for me. we had dinner one night (included in our package) in the restaurant. Although this was not the full a la carte menu displayed on the website, a wide menu was offered and the food quality and service was excellent. We brought our own drinks to the table from the bar,but a nice touch was that a jug of water was automatically provided free of charge as part of the meal. Two courses plus coffee/tea were included in our dinner package, with a third course available for an extra Euro5.5 per person. Excellent value.

We had a quiet room on the second floor at the back of the hotel, staying Thursday and Friday night, which was mostly fine. We attended a wedding on Friday away from the hotel and returned to the hotel just after midnight. A birthday party celebration was still underway which we could hear slightly from our room, but it was not much of a problem and seemed to finish shortly afterwards. The hotel itself appears to be a popular wedding venue so I suspect a midweek stay is likely to be queiter than a weekend stay.

All in all, we had a very pleasant stay. We would recommend the two night B&b plus dinner on one night package as very good value at Euro160 total for two people. We used Suntransfers for transfers from and back to Dublin airport - excellent service and very price competitive.

We booked our christening reception with the hotel, and the service we have received is terrible.
We booked at the beginning of January this year for our reception in March 2013, we booked a private room for dinner, we had a large enough group which would include children and we wanted space for them to be entertained. Our booking was confirmed by mail. Invitations were sent.
I emailed last week, after 3 days they replied to my mail to say the room was " already booked" and they would be moving our party to the ballroom which we would " have to share with other customers".
We called to say this wasn't what we reserved, we only booked with the hotel as we needed a private room, but the manager said all he could do was place us there but give us a discount on the meal.
After a week of calling other places, today... 2 weeks before the Christening we have found a venue.
As a token of goodwill they have offered us a voucher for dinner! The last place we will ever go is back to The Springfield Hotel!

We celebratedvmy wifes birthday with 96 guests at the hotel. We enjoyed excellent service and very friendly staff in the reception, bars, restaurants and room service. If you are planning a big party we recommend the Springfield hotel Leixlip.

We were married in the Springfield in 2005, and have been guests at two more since then, the last in 2010. We often have sunday carvey too. As parents to 4 kids we rarely get away so this weekend we booked the springfield as it was close to home. We'd the package for room breakfast and a evening meal for two for under 100 euro which i though was a great price. We arrived at the hotel at 2, and had a quick check in and booked our table. The reception staff were lovely. We went up to our room and dropped off our bag. The room was a grand size. But it seemed to have a large open space at the window where i presumed a table and chairs might have been?? We left and headed to the bar, the wedding party had arrived and the bar and reception area was fairly busy. We sat at the bar itself. And started to watch the rugby. 35 minutes into the match a man shouted across to the bar man to put on the united football match and just like that he changed it. We sat a bit bemused and instead we watched the rugby through my husbands phone at the bar. As the wedding guests were in the bar area the service was fine, quick, we even had bar food, it was lovely. The wedding party didn't leave to the reception area til after 5 and then the bar seemed to become very hard to get a drink in. Not a bar man in site. At 5.30 we decided to go up to the room and get changed for dinner and to watch the England rugby match in our room. I was a little annoyed at this stage. Watching the wedding guests brought back lovely memories for me but I was shockingly disappointed with what I was experiencing today as a "normal" guest. Myself and my husband decided to pass on dinner. We stayed in our room for the rest of the evening. The hotel was extremely loud, we could hear the DJ but that was to be expected. It wasn't too late when the reception finished. This morning we went down for breakfast and had an open mind to maybe yesterday the staff were just simply rushed off their feet. We were only 1 of maybe 5 couples in the restaurant . We were asked our room number and told to sit anywhere, then a lady just shouted over to us and said you'll have 2 full Irish breakfast?? I said yes please and we asked for tea. I felt like the whole restaurant now knew what we were eating!!! When it came out it was awful. 2 pieces of burned bacon, 1 burnt sausage, 2 pieces or chared pudding that i couldn't see which was white or black and tomato and fried egg. We were also given 2 slices of toast a 2 slices of soda bread between us! I took a photo of my breakfast to prove it. Nobody came near us again! More guests arrived and were also asked there order the same way, while standing waiting to be told what to do next!!! It was all very odd and the fact that it wasn't busy made it seem even more disappointing. I was glad i hadnt had to sit through dinner if this was how guests were treated. We checked out at 10 and again the receptionist was lovely. I coukd have let rip at her, but it wasnt her fault, it was the other staff who had let the hotel down. I loved this hotel and the memories it will always have for me and my husband and family, but this particular trip ill happily forget. I really hope that there will be improvements soon because id hate to think that ill never be back again.

We just celebrated our sons christening at this hotel and it was such a great day I had to write a review. The hotel were extremely accommodating and helpful when I was planning the day and the room they provided for us was perfect. We had a party for approx 40 people including small children and the room was perfect size and decorated beautifully.

We opted for finger food and tea and coffee, great price and really tasty! All staff were really friendly and we had a great celebration.

Thanks to all at the Springfield Hotel, I would highly recommend for anyone planning a party or event.
