Return here time and again with my children, friends and their children, for a relaxed family friendly afternoon tea. The staff are so accommodating, the food is delicious and the grounds are beautiful.

We had a beautiful day here for my Mam’s 70th Birthday, we had afternoon tea for 6, the staff were very helpful and catered for our fussy eaters in the group, I would have rated the food and drink 5 stars if there had been a cocktail menu but unfortunately there was none. Other than that the whole day was lovely and the afternoon tea was great value for money.

This was my first time in this hotel and I had booked afternoon tea for my friend who is due a baby soon. There were 5 of us and I after having afternoon tea in other places before was very disappointed at the portion size for 5 people. You literally got one of each thing but not a big selection. The service was slow and we had to keep asking for water. It’s a good price but wouldn’t be rushing back.

I booked afternoon tea for my friend's 30th Birthday and we loved it! The food was lovely and its reasonably priced! We couldn't fault the staff and they even sent out an extra cake for the celebration which was a lovely surprise! We also really appreciated that they substituted some of the food items to suit our taste which you wouldn't find in most places! Will definatley be back!

We had afternoon tea in Finnstown house saturday which we were really looking to. Myself and 2 other ladies. We had booked for 3pm. We were directed to sit in bar at 250pm. I checked in with the bar staff and was asked to take a seat to which we sat for 20 minutes. I asked a lounge staff could we make our order. We were then asked to move into the front room. One of our ladies was gluten free option. This was very poor. 2 sandwiches, Chocolate muffin meringue and a scone. We have went to so many other places for afternoon tea and the selections were so much better than what finnstown provided so unfortunately we will not be returning to finnstown house and will not be recommending afternoon tea.

Booked afternoon tea for my daughters 16th birthday. As we don't eat red meat, we requested that none of this be on the sandwiches. We got chicken sandwiches and smoked salmon on brown bread. It was really nice, however a bit of egg mayo or cheese would have been lovely for a bit of variety. We really enjoyed it and will certainly return

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.
