Had the pleasure of being a guest in this hotel last weekend and stayed there for 2 nights and for once could have easily stayed for another 5! It's located in the grounds of Ashford Castle so the drive to it is amazing. The hotel itself is housed within an old Georgian Country House but is contemporary in design internally. This works surprising well with a great fusion between old and new.
Upon arrival I was met curteously by a lovely staff member who showed me to my room. The hotel is pure luxury and amazingly decorated. My room was fabulous with all the added extras you can imagine - it even had a roll top copper bath. The best thing about the whole stay was definitely the bed - if I could bring it home with me I would! That and the goose-down quilt!!
The heated floor in the bathroom was another favourite of mine! There were also little touches, like the turn down service and the complimentary newspaper in the morning. Had my breakfast in bed and the menu offered great choice.
The restaurant has a fabulous menu and the athmosphere is lovely overlooking the Lough. My meal was beautiful and the wine well chosen by the manager.
I would have no hesitation in recommending this property to anyone looking for a really special weekend. Would recommend a visit to the hot tub located in an orchard garden looking over the harbour & lake - pure romance - Loved it!!!!!
