Visited last Sunday week and had dinner in Bar area. Food was delicious. Staff were very friendly and attentive to us. Would like to have dined in Restaurant but seemed to be closed for dinner. For a 4 star hotel I did expect to see Restaurant open for dinner.

The Step House in Borris is a gem of a destination. Tastefully decorated, it is a calm and relaxing place to stay. Top class dinner cuisine and excellent breakfast. We felt welcomed and well looked after by the lovely staff. Thank you to the ladies on reception for your endless patience with our booking.

There can be no doubt that this hotel has so much to offer by way of class and the little added extras. We were enthralled by the stunning gardens on the day of the wedding - they make for...

Just returned from a most enjoyable stay in the Step House. Attractive entrance and welcoming staff on the reception desk. Our room was large and comfortable. The bathroom was a good size. Small quibble, no tissues, even though I asked for them. Dinner was served in the bar, as the restaurant is closed at this time of the year. Excellent...

We stayed here on a 'special offer' for 2 nights. The food is very good. The wine is not so good. Poor selection and not great quality. Our room was clean but the room was pokey. I wish hotels did not offer special deals if they don't intend to treat guests equally. The restaurant staff were very pleasant. I would...

I attended a Dinner Dance here on Saturday and have to say the food was amazing. Everything cooked & prepared so well and all tasted amazing. Staff are very helpful & friendly and nothing is overlooked. There was a drinks reception in the cocktail bar upstairs beforehand and is so warm & inviting.

This is one of the best, if not the best hotel I have ever stayed in. From the moment I arrived I was made to feel right at home with such wonderful staff, so attentive and kind. Our room was positively amazing. I was in awe at the size of our room and ensuite. The attention to detail was just...

Myself and my husband held our wedding reception at Step House this summer and we could not have asked for more!! It is a gorgeous hotel - the decor throughout is stunning. The gardens are beautifully kept and the vintage style cocktail bar and attached balcony are a great setting for the drinks reception. The food is fabulous and the...
