I chose the Afternoon Tea to celebrate my mother's birthday and I would definitely do it again. The Staff was amazingly welcoming, ready to give us the best service and experience. Everything else was also perfect, the food was fresh and delicious, the ambiance of the restaurant was great and charming. Thank you for providing us a great time, we will be coming back soon.

Disappointed in the afternoon tea. All the bread in the sandwiches seemed like slices from a standard brennan's pan. Portions were very small and very little filling in the sandwiches. Cake and pastries were mediocre to say the least. I would rather pay more and have a better selection and quality.

Heineken could be colder. Soup wasn’t great. No bar snacks (crisps, chocolate, nuts) and it would be good to be able to have some sides in the drinking area ie: chips, toasties, wings... A vending machine would be handy also. Everything else was fantastic. Great room, great comfort. So good, that we stayed an extra night. We’ll be back.

Afternoon tea was fantastic. Very balanced menu. Just enough savoury and sweet. Would definitely be my favourite afternoon tea experience so far.

As it was our first family trip away with our 4 month old we were so excited to make sure she had a good time so swimming was amazing she loved it, I had booked afternoon tea but even though staff were all very friendly & polite the bread our sandwiches were made with was hard as if they were left in the air too long, our afternoon tea stands came out to the table before a tea/coffee/water order was taken I had to track a waitress down to ask them to take a tea/coffee order, a bit disappointing as we spent €100 as friends of ours joined us I felt staff as I said before are very nice & polite appear to be lacking training or are just young and inexperienced has to be said it is letting you down. Dinner on previous afternoon was the same food was brought to the table before any drinks or water, paying for five star service but not receiving unfortunately

We were extremely disappointed with the travel cot provided on the first night of our stay. It did not have a mattress. There were hard uneven joints in the base so we could not use it for our 8 month old to sleep in. We asked on night 1 for a mattress for the cot and were told no that it was against health and safety policy. As a result we had to allow the baby to sleep in the bed with us and nobody got any sleep. On day 2 I spoke to a lady at the front desk who also stated that a mattress could not be provided due to safety policy. She said that she would arrange for another cot however this never happened.. Instead we were provided with a cot mattress which we were refused until this point. I do not understand how we were refused this on the basis of health and safety one night and the next we are given the mattress. If the policy is not to provide mattress for travel cot that is fine however customers need to be informed at time of booking of this in order to make suitable arrangements or book different accommodation. Personally I do not see an issue with providing a mattress in a travel cot for customers... These mattresses come with travel cots when bought. However if there is a policy in place based on health and safety of an infant this should not be deviated from. I am confused as to what went on and disappointed with the lack of comfort on the first night of our stay.
