Very expensive food on a limited menu that was meat heavy. Choices were old fashioned and although the chicken was beautifully cooked, the meal was incredibly rich. All of this would be ok if it wasn’t for such a high price point.

Beautiful room(302) but VERY noisy plumbing/radiator , maybe due to airlock in system when heating coming on. While the staff were very pleasant the service at breakfast was very bad... hot food coming at same time as your cereal on Monday and my boiled egg failed to arrive at all on the Tuesday! Dinner on Monday in the Oak was ok but certainly not an unforgettable dining experience and hence we did not dine there on Tuesday. The reception staff were excellent.

Absolutely fabulous service from start to finish. I cannot fault it. The wonderful servers did an incredible job and were so hospitable. I can't imagine what working all day with a mask on is like but everything they did, they did with such warmth and friendliness under, what I am certain, are very difficult circumstances. I also felt very comfortable from a social distancing perspective. Oh, and the food was great!! Great work!!

FYI. In advance of our evening meal I rang on the day before to confirm the meal time and eventually after 3 attempts I got through to the Oak restaurant but the young chap advised he couldn't get into the booking system, I gave him my mob. no. to ring back when he could find out but he never rang back. Also I had previously advise when initially booking that it was to be our 25th wedding anniversary (we had our wedding reception at the Slieve Donard 25 years ago) but when we arrived at the Oak Res. they had no record of our booking and sadly upon arrival no acknowledgement of the 25th wed anniversary. Also we were only offered the limited 2 or 3 course set menu and not for example the a la Carte menu. Unfortunately we came away disappointed by the whole experience.

Food was beautiful, staff were exceptional, glazed cinnamon carrots are on my new Christmas menu. Creme bruleè was on my dream dessert list and perfect for my 40th birthday celebration. Pasta that my little 14month old had was delicious too.

The duvet cove on the bed was very tired and needed upgrading as there were holes in it. Using the dressing gowns were the same a few holes or one of the loops not there. Staff very friendly and the food very good

Was especially pleased with the imaginative range of the vegan menu and the fact there were so many good choices for dinner. Plenty of alternatives for breakfast too. Like the idea of locally-sourced produce. My companion really enjoyed the Irish beef. The red wine (Pino Noir) was good quality and served at the right temperature

The new normal was handled very well by the staff in the Oak Restaurant. My wife and I have been coming here for 28 years and this is the best meal we have ever had in the restaurant. Top class food and presentation and definitely a step up on anything we have had before in the Oak Restaurant. Looking forward to our return visit in December.
