Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

My family and I spent a night at this excellent hotel as part of my big birthday celebrations. The hotel is located on its own extensive grounds which are well-tended. On arrival there was a red carpet to the front door, not for us, I hasten to add!!! but for a wedding party taking place that day. Of course, we had to walk on the red carpet to the door!!!!! A member of staff opened it and we were given a warm welcome. Check-in was quick and efficient and we were directed to our room. It was a three-bedroom room and beautifully decorated. There was a tea tray and a kettle available and we were very glad of it. After a walk in the lovely grounds, we went to the bar. It was busy because of the wedding but the service was fast and efficient. We had dinner in the large dining room and a pianist entertained diners. The food was delicious and there was a good choice. The service was excellent and the waiting staff was friendly and proficient. Our beds were very comfortable and we had a good night's rest. Breakfast had to be booked the night before. It was served in the same dining room as dinner. There was an extensive self-serve buffet with a great choice of food. There was also a hot breakfast service. The hotel is very well run with lots of staff to look after guests. I would not hesitate to recommend it.

A massive thank you to Anita and her team in the golf club who were amazing the day of our daughters christening. Anita was so helpful before the christening with discussing the different options for the menu and going through everything so throughly. She had the area set up beautifully for us with the cake and decorations. On the day the food and service was just fantastic. Anita and her team were so attentive to the big group of 27 of us and making sure everyone had a drink or tea and coffee. Nothing was amiss. Everyone in our party was complimenting the service and hotel. Thank you very much we had a fantastic day.

On a recent stay I had a fantastic dinner. I was greeted at the entrance by the supervisor on duty who had such a really warm and welcoming smile as well as the most upbeat attitude, I believe her name was Cat. My order was taken and I am a very picky eater so I had a few requests as well as changes to what I ordered but this was not a problem at all as I have experienced some bad attitudes when doing it in some other establishments so thank you for to the server the understanding as well I think her name was Sarah. Overall a fantastic experience as well as a delicious meal

Banqueting staff are just fantastic. Suzanna in particular was so attentive and excellent at her job. Rooms are clean and comfortable. We did not have any robes or slippers in our room so we had to dress to go the leisure center and dress again after rather than being able to use the robes and slippers to go back to our room.

Undoubtedly the Sleive Russell hotel has gone from strength to strength over the this past few years. The hotel is pristine, new carpets and curtains, new colour scheme and the staff are fabulous. Prices are a wee bit on the pricey side, but that could be overlooked if the experience was exemplary. The one issue I had was that the place was cold. Myself and my family went for dinner on Saturday night 27 January and we were all Frozen. The food was great! But we were all very cold, I couldn’t take my coat off and I couldn’t wait to get out of there. A complaint was made to the staff, and they were very nice about it , but it didn’t get any warmer. The bar and the reception area was the same, but not as bad. Great place to visit, but wear your winter woolies..

Here for a conference. The rooms location are extremely relaxing and spotless. But the gem of the hotel is the food and the staff very attentive to everyone. For the banquet service was very quick and the food excellent. We bopped the night away. Breakfast is table service which is a nice change from the buffet styles

I booked the Slieve Russell very last minute for my husband and I and our 4 month old. After booking I looked up the reviews and a few of the recent ones weren't great and now I'm delighted I hadn't read them before booking. Food was excellent, we had dinner in the restaurant for the 3 nights we were there. I'd highly recommend the tiger prawns and the duck was delicious! The Kells bar was a nice spot for a pre or post dinner drink,very homely with the couches and fireplace. We went to the summit bar for lunch on one of the days again the food was very good with beautiful views of the golf course and lake. Our room was spacious and had more than enough space for the 3 of us. Bathroom again spacious with a separate bath and shower which a lot of hotels don't offer these days! Leisure facilities were very family friendly it was great we were able to bring our little one for a little splash around in the kiddies pool. The grounds themselves are beautiful with lots of walks around the golf course. The staff were really friendly and we couldn't fault the service special mention to Sarah and all the lovely staff in the restaurant for looking after us so well. Just booked again for July and really looking forward to going back.
