We had an amazing stay. The hotel and staff exceeded our expectations and we will definitely be returning. A classy and sophisticated hotel yet with a personal and welcoming touch. We honestly couldn’t fault anything. We got engaged during our stay so it will always be a special place to us. Huge thank you to everyone especially Megan. Nothing short of perfect.

When taking a choice of the romance package you should not have to pay extra for the alternative that was put on .

I went to afternoon tea at this hotel for a treat with my friend. The service, food, atmosphere and premises were to an exceptional standard, So much so that I have booked to have my wedding anniversary dinner at this hotel. Bravo everyone, I will recommend this hotel to all my friends and family. From a very happy customer.

First time at Grey Friars, very much enjoyed it, will definitely be back. It was my 60th birthday treat with my friend and the decorated birthday plate was a very nice touch and surprise. Thank you so much for making it an even more memorable time. Mock tails on the sun terrace before we went in for afternoon tea were delicious, a beautiful place to sit in the sun and enjoy the drinks.

This was my first visit to Grey Friars. I was very impressed with every aspect of the place. The place itself is beautiful. The staff were all very friendly, helpful and professional. The food was absolutely delicious. We both had 3 courses and could not fault it. Will definitely be back and would recommend wholeheartedly
