Recently stayed and dined at Becketts. I had dined here previously - many years ago - and remembered it as having been a most enjoyable experience so looked forward to returning.
I really loved the accommodation - the rooms are most comfortable and unique. Very spacious with beautiful high ceilings and individual character. We had two rooms between our party and, while they were different, they were both really lovely. The TV came on itself during the night which was a little 'freaky' but funny ... maybe the remote from the room beside ours activated it? Not really sure what happened but it was not a big deal.
We enjoyed dinner from the early bird menu in a very busy dining room with great atmosphere. The meal was most enjoyable (compliments to the chef) but the service a little rushed towards the end of the meal.
Having enjoyed a fabulous meal, we felt that the experience of it was a little ruined by the fact that an 'issue' was made over €0.38 on the bill. The bill presented to us had automatically included 12.5% service which we felt was a little high. We also felt that it would be more appropriate to have service charge at the discretion of the diner.
The service at breakfast the following morning was completely different. Colm (I think the gentlemans name was) was most pleasant and friendly, helpful and very attentive. Nothing was too much trouble - Thank you.
I would certainly recommend Becketts.
