“Comfort, great food and a spa to die for.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 May 2012 via mobile

We won a two-night break on www.pamperme.ie and we were expecting to be given the most basic room and service as were getting it for free. Well, we couldn't have got it more wrong. We were given a gorgeous spacious room with a huge window with lovely views and it was equipped with all the little things you'd expect. The staff are genuinely so friendly and were really helpful and quick to attend to our needs. Everyone should try the Lacy restaurant on the rooftop, we both went for all 3 courses, the food didn't let them down either, delicious, delicious, delicious! The best part of our break was the Spa treatments. A full hour each of luxury pampering, their facilities are excellent. The staff there didn't rush us and were polite, friendly and professional. You won't want to leave the Spa - we didn't.
Really relaxing break, would stay here again.

I found it OK. Everything worked, food was good and staff were fine. Its not luxury but I thought it fair enough value. Not four star though.

I stayed at the Millrace for three days on a golf break and it was not up to the 4 stars it boasts of. We were allocated to the apartments beside the main hotel( four floors up) to be then told that the lifts were out of order in the block. The apartment was basic, with very small twin beds in the second bedroom which were not comfortable for the two adults in it. The main double room was better but was missing a sink plug in the bathroom With three adults staying in the apartment the hotel could only muster up one key between us.The staff are good and attentive however, this hotel in my opinion is not worthy of the 4 stars it has. Not good enough Carlton Group.

This hotel is in the middle of Bunclody and very convenient to Bunclody Golf Club. It is good value for what it offers but it is not luxurious or memorable in any way. Dinner was excellent, breakfast was ok, nothing special. Staff are very friendly and helpful. The breakfast room is nicely located on the 4th floor although the service area is quite small and restricted. Bedrooms are quite basic.

Prices where not VAT inclusive only to see them in final bill,photos not accurate and some removed,check in time different and again this was changed,was left sitting in lobby for two hours,staff had the same read of script line for everybody that came in after me,there was a mountain of bags,No Wifi not working,cheap TV That was tiny with 3 channels and speaker was distorted,no iron,NO SMOKING THREATS everywhere,Food,The roast beef was like a slipper you could not cut it,meal times not good enough for family groups,when i went to complain all i got was another scripted reply which was down right ignorant.
Who ever want the photos i have them which i will be forwarding to the carlton group.
I alot with my work and stay in hotels and this has been the worst experience ive ever had.

Stayed at this hotel on a two night stay while touring the Emarld Isle, got a good rate check website for offers they can be quite good and close enough to rosslare for return ferry.

I found the Recption staff to be very friendly and imformative, The bedrooms are a little dated but clean and spacious enought for a two night stay.

The leisure area was ample but needs a bit of a make over this makes it feel a little dirty but it was wear and tear rather than cleaning in my view.

We ate in the restaurant on the first night where they are doing a special meal for two and wine €50 per couple, the food and service whhere not four star standard but five. We tried to book again for the next night but it was full booked untill 9.45 so we dissapointly declined although I understand why it was full. So We ate in the Bar, it was an american style menu, which was a bit bizzar as the only thing ressembling America was the menu, any way, we orded and ate the food was of a good standard and we were happy untill we tried to get dessert and a coffee, the service staff seemed to turn off there was enough of them but seemed to think people only wanted starter and main then forget about you, 40 minutes later we were asked do you want dessert by then we decided against and asked for bill, 20 minutes later we were asked again do we want dessert I explained we wanted the bill, so it arrived 10 minutes later, I felt poor end to a nice evening. I was a little annoyed so I asked at reception if the was a manager available when i was prompltly told the hotel does not operate with managers at night and the General Manager was off for the weekend, strange I thought but left it as I was only going to explain about long delay for dessert and bill but it was not that important.

Breakfast nice selection, fiendly staff

Overall I would recomend this Hotel but feel if there were managers in the evening or the day manager worked at night it would help bring the standard that little bit better which would have made our overall experience perfect

I will recomend though in the future for Staff Food and value

Room Tip: Book the Restaurant on arrival well worth the visit

Excellent hotel, nice clean modern rooms, good furnishings, free WiFi, clean bathrooms and towels provided. Very comfortable bed, didn't want to get up in the morning! We were served breakfast in their bistro/ bar, full cooked Irish breakfast done to order, fresh tea and toast topped up regularly, very friendly staff. Cereals and juices etc were also on offer in a continental style buffet, lovely room to eat in! Reception staff all friendly and helpful, and as we regularly return to our hotels after doors are closed we had no problem getting in, the porter was great, we rang the bell, he greeted us and took our room numbers etc, all round a good showing from this hotel, highly recommended.
