The spa treatment was brilliant and we spent 2 hours in the thermal suite which was very relaxing. We also had dinner in the restaurant included in the package and the food was fantastic. The staff in the restaurant...

From start to finish the customer service, advice and support was excellent from all staff but a special mention has to go to Linda, our wedding coordinator. In the months leading to the wedding, Linda kept us right, updating us and meeting at key intervals. The menu tasting night is something...

Great hotel for families but not so great for couples. We came here for our honeymoon and a break but found the hotel completely mental. There was a massive wedding, a few first holy communion parties and then countless hen/stag parties. We didn't manage to get a seat in the bar at any point it was so busy. Kids everywhere...

Stayed here for 3 nights at the beginning of October to attend a family wedding at Cabra Castle. We travelled from all over Scotland in about 3 different groups and the reception and waiting staff couldn't have been more accommodating. We all arrived at different times, asking for menus just as the other half of the group had finished -...

Stay here every easter time with our son, he loves it, there is a games room, outside play area all adjoined for security and the staff are brilliant and let them run about and play while the parents can have a sneaky gin and tonic in the bar. Food is always great as well, couldnt recommend here more.
