Staff were in a hurry buzzing around getting things wrong. Uncomfortable We booked as a package which our meal was included, but weren't offered the menu with a steak because there was a €7 supplement ? ? For me this is bad service. Now to be fair, they did give us a drink on the house but only because they... More

I went out for a meal and was sorry I did, the service was poor and the food which is supposed to be good was cold. I cannot say I would go again.

A limited by competent menu with some unusual dishes on offer. For example, I had confit of lamb in filo pastry, accompanied by a coriander infused risotto the night I dined there.

We had a lovely meal here Christmas Eve, I ordered the vegetarian curry and my husband had the lamb. The service was great and the food was lovely,I would say though that the veggie curry was described as a taste of Thailand, with hints of jasmine etc, now the curry was nice but it was not a Thai curry, it...

My husband and I went for a meal here in October as we had been given a voucher. We couldn't believe the value and quality of the food. €25 for starter, mains, dessert and coffee! We enjoyed it so much we came back a few weeks later with another couple. Second time round it was still as nice and good... More

The service in the bar was a joke. We ordered three meals for the three of us. They served us an order of fries and the wrong pizza - when we asked where the rest of the order was, they had no idea. We told them it was the wrong pizza so they took it way. While waiting we started... More

I and three others went for lunch at the carvery in Athlone. No carvery (bank holiday) which normally is busy and good. Menu was like a poor cafe with a card menu with a very limited choice - burger, chips, soup (vegetable) and sandwiches (toasted cheese). Appalling for a high class hotel. We had to go and find a waiter... More
