Spent three nights here in July. The rooms are huge and well fitted out and spotlessly clean, the staff are excellent and cater to your every need. The lakeside restaurant is superbly situated by Lough Eske and the food is very special. We highly recommend this hotel and hope to return soon.

The hotel lives up to all the previous reviews, but this is not a hotel if you are elderly, unless you have a wheelchair or a buggy. There are long distances to walk from a room to the public areas. There are no subtitles on the TV. The staff were surprised by my request for them. There are only 2...

I cannot recommend this hotel highly enough, I attended a wedding and the staff were very friendly while professional. Facilities, venue, location and amenities were excellent. Would love to return for a second visit and spend more time there. I am not surprised it has received many awards and accolades and I have no doubt will continue to do so.
