Just checked out of the Powerscourt Hotel. We booked in for our wedding anniversary. The staff were excellent. Upon arrival they upgraded our room to an amazing suite- a big thank you for that!
The Spa was fabulous, although very busy this weekend.
We had a meal in the Sika restaurant. Our waiter Mark was excellent, great recommendations and really knew his wine. My husband was impressed as he is a wine exporter and enjoys trying new things. The food was delicious. I had the lamb and my husband had the beef. We live quite close by so I would definitely come back for the food alone.
Overall this was a great couples experience. Considering the hotel does not offer family specials, I was surprised at the number of families staying here enjoying the facilities. I felt a bit guilty as we had left our children with their grandparents for the night ;) the recession must be well and truly over!
A few points for constructive feedback:
Paint on swimming pool roof was peeling quite badly. Needs attention.
Electric curtains in room 701 are broken, off the rails. Iron also didn't work. The half bottle of Chablis in the fridge was a 2009 vintage and would not be drinkable at this stage. 1st world problems!
One other small thing, €9.50 for a Gordon's gin and tonic in McGills bar is very pricey. If it was slightly cheaper, we would have had more!
Overall it was an excellent weekend and we'd love to come back!!
