Lovely weekend at Finnstown castle. The afternoon tea was lovely and very good value. The food in the bar was also lovely, we ate there two nights. The waiting staff were so lovely and attentive. The room was really nice and very clean.

Food was delicious and there was a good variety. There was just a bit of delay in getting the food so had to get a second pot of tea but would definitely go again. Thoroughly enjoyed it.

Four of us had afternoon tea in Finnstown. Whilst the atmosphere was nice, the service was very poor & the food was tired looking with no attention given to presentation. Scones were very nice. Tea should have been served in china tea pots with matching cups. It was a disappointing experience

I asked for a glass of wine to be replaced as it tasted quite sour and acidic. The bar staff did so without question and then followed up afterwards to check was it ok. Very impressed

Lovely afternoon tea and lovely seating place sitting beside the fireplace. Although, we had to wait about 20 mins to be shown to our table - in fairness it was very busy with a wedding party on that day. We then waited another 40 mins to get our food. Although I requested no fish, we got salmon and tuna sandwiches. The service wasn't great - staff seemed depressed and unfriendly and disappeared for a long time. We asked for a jug of water but never got it, and also needed a fresh pot of tea and some butter for our scones but no one came back into the room for over 30 mins so one of us had to get up and find someone to ask. I think fresh tea is a pretty basic necessity for afternoon tea. The atmosphere wasn't great - we were in a quiet room full of other people so everyone could hear each others conversations. I would suggest having some background music maybe. Other than that, the room was beautiful, we were seated next to a big open fireplace, food was nice, and it was great value for money.

I requested a vegetarian option for the sandwiches but only got all meat. Also felt like the desserts were not fresh and were just straight from a freezer, this was disappointing.

Firstly the venue is beautiful & very well presented. I was very impressed by it. Unfortunately I can't say the same for the service we received. I notified the castle twice regarding my nut allergy, firstly online when i made the booking and again over the phone a few days before hand. I felt my dietary requirement wasn't handled very professionally. After we were served our tea / coffee, the waitress came back to me and questioned the severity of my nut allergy advising me quite loudly might i add which was rather embarrassing for me that the kitchen "didn't think afternoon tea would be suitable for me". This is very irritating for me as i had given plenty of notice. After a discussion with waitress i explained i was happy to proceed with afternoon tea providing there was no nuts as part of the ingredients which she proceeded to say that there was not but she couldn't guarantee there was no nuts in the kitchen. I understand you have to cover all basis when it comes to allergies but its very irritating the way in which it was handled given the advanced notice i gave. In addition to that i have been to afternoon tea in many hotels and this was the first whereby we were not told of the sandwich options when we arrived. I understand afternoon tea is served with a selection but it would be nice to advise what the selection is. One of my party doesn't like fish for example and the other doesn't eat butter. The order had gone straight to the kitchen before we got a chance to say that. When I asked the waitress if we would be advised of the sandwich options, i was told "we don't do that here". On a positive note, i have to say what we got was very well presented, tasted lovely and was very good value but in my opinion, with the exception of a very friendly waitress at the end who packed up our left overs for us to take home, the unprofessional service let you down.

I have rated service 3, not because the staff performed badly, because the main bar area seemed very under staffed. There were only 2 members of bar staff dealing with the entire upstairs longue area during Easter holiday week at lunchtime. We waited 10 mins in the bar before being dealt with upon our arrival. The lady on reception had little or no interest in us. I noted several groups of 4-8 people arriving & again waiting. I would suggest that more adequate staffing levels be applied.

Unfortunately the service and the food was very poor. We were left nearly 20 min waiting on food, and we were never approached about what would be on the tray. As I'm allergic to seafood, by the time the tray had arrived I didn't bother asking for something different as we had already been waiting so long. There were no servers in the room and we had to go to reception to get settle the bill. Very disappointed on what was supposed to be a birthday treat
