My husband our son and myself stayed here for 3 nights 2nd ,march we arrived in the afternoon the girl at check in was very quick girl was polite but again there was no welcome to the killeshin or enjoy your stay with us she did point out restaurant ,bar ,leisure area but never asked us if we would like to book dinner so we asked her to book us a table .We got to our room it was nice ,clean hovering could be a little better .Bathroom was clean no shower mat or toilet brush but however nice and clean.We went to the restaurant nice music playing nice decor and clean .We ordered our starter i had cesear salad which was basic lots of greens very little dressing which made it very tasteless i asked for some dressing i got a little bowl of mayonaise ? I did say it to the girl ?her response was i will let the chef know it seemed there was very little organisation in the restaurant every waiter and waitress seemed to be serving us tables didnt seem to be shared out between them .Again no drinks were offered wine beer etc .We asked for them .Our main course was steak it was ok a bit tough veg was great and potatoe was great .We had desert lemon roulade was flat with lots of berry dressing on top did not taste fresh coffee was not ground coffee as i would expect .So i asked the waitress to change which she did.We went to the bar to have a drink golf was on tv we asked the bar tender to change the channelif possible to be told golf is remaining on ? maybe he likes the sport?We had our drink and left .We went for b/fast on sat morning it was only ok to be honest bacon very dry and over cooked mushrooms i think were from a tin toast was soft coffee was awfull! We didnt have lunch in the hotel .We had bar food in the evening it was good soup was just warm not hot bread rolls were soft .We asked if there was any entertainment in the hotel for the wk end to be told no! disapointed we were however we stayed in the bar to watch golf again my husband asked the bar tender if he would put on the boxing that nite his answer was if no one wants to watch the golf!!!!!!!!! i will . We went to our room and watched tv for the nite .B/fast was the same again .On sunday we had lunch in the bar overall it was good but the same soup just warm lemon roulade was flat again with berrys on top in a very sweet sauce i have never seen lemon roulade with mixed berrys ? We went walking and shopping we returned to the bar to have a sandwich to be told we dont serve any in the bar after 4 o clock stange we said but but! we could get them room service with a tray charge of i think 4 euro each the bar man then said i will try to pull a few strings and get them for ye ok we got them bread wasnt fresh we gave up at this stage! This is why hotels are not doing very well in ireland staff arent selling example book a table? wine at dinner! no entertainment in bar at wk ends .There was no atmosphere in this hotel for the 3 days and 3 nights not one manager did we see in the bar or restaurant .We were disapointed .Monday morning my husband went to collect the car keys at reception at 11 o clock as we had left them there the girl said to him are you going to pay your bill before you leave ? I thought it was rude to be honest he replied when we check out we will pay our bill of couse ! When we did check out the same girl that checked us in never asked did you enjoy your stay or please visit again or was all ok for you .? Dont think we would stay here again this was our experince in this hotel .I found this hotel not 4 star 3 max.Guests should be treated a bit better than that. What i would expect from a 4 star hotel didnt happen in this one.
