My wife, 2 boys & I took advantage of a one night b&b offer through a popular loyalty card scheme, which turned out to be wonderful value break. Within an easy & quick drive from the city, the lovely driveway & mature tree-lined grounds reveal a beautiful house & outbuildings.
The reception staff and porter gave us a friendly and welcoming arrival, and our family room was spacious, comfortable & well equipped with lovely mahogany furniture.
The main house is fabulous, with high ceilings & lovely art work, and has a lovely bar area / drawing room, where we had pre-dinner drinks. Being a saturday night, the restaurant was busy, giving the room a lovely buzz, the pianist added furthermore to a lovely atmosphere. The food was excellent, perfectly cooked & well presented with generous portions. The service, whilst not seemless was friendly and coped well with a full room.
The following morning, following a very good sleep on the extraordinarily comfortable bed, we started our day with a dip in the pool. Whilst not huge, it was a lovely start to the day. A lovely self service breakfast followed, again served in the restaurant, which was again very busy, and was plentiful & hot! Whilst being seated our very pleasant waiter told us "don't be shy- help yourself"!!
Our experience at Finnstown finished with a brief stroll around the lovely gardens, and again a very friendly & efficient check out at reception.
In summary, we really enjoyed our stay, the staff (and clearly, the management) are doing a great job, and compliment the lovely setting wonderfully well. Prior posts are right, it is a little old fashioned, but that only adds to the charm. I'll take that over the many soulless hotels that have sprung up over so many parts of the country any day of the week...
