What a beautiful hotel, friendly & accommodating on numerous levels. We stayed here on 17th July 2013 overnight for my birthday & I honestly don’t think we could have found a nicer hotel in the area. Our room was a corner double overlooking the harbour (this I could have watched for hours!) it was huge with a great sized comfortable bed & pillows to die for! Stacks of storage in the room, the bathroom was sparking with a good powerful show, shower gel & shampoo included, not tiny sachets but gorgeous wall mounted dispensers full of quality product. We could not have faulted the room one little bit, perfect in every respect.
The manager & the staff were very friendly & happy to help with every little detail. When I mentioned I was vegan asking what was suitable on the menu he spoke with the chef immediately & offered changes to dishes avoiding cream etc. The bar was friendly, homely & very relaxing. That evening we eat in the restaurant & were blown away with the quality & variety of food on offer. My husband had Papardelle con Pollo All'Aglio full of succulent chicken. I had the Gnocci con Verdure di Primavera which had to be the best ever gnocci, with butternut cooked to perfect. The chef is a keeper, don’t let go of him/her as this quality of cuisine is rarely found outside of big cities. Wine was reasonably priced, service was top notch.
At breakfast I was asked if I’d like something vegan, grilled mushrooms as they were fresh in, boy did the chef know how to bring out the flavour, using fresh herbs they were probably the best I’ve tasted. I had asked for some fruit expecting some tinned grapefruit I was so wrong, the plate of fruit was not only aesthetically pleasing but delicious. My husband was delighted with his fry all locally sourced fresh products.
We didn’t want to leave The Lough & Quay, we could have stayed forever!
