We arrived prior to check in time and completed necessary paperwork, explained we were heading into Dublin and were told we could collect key on return and if no receptionist would be night Porter. We arrived after 11pm after a tiring day and although very welcoming and pleasant the member of staff could not locate our booking. We waited a good ten minutes before briskly being taken to a room in the out building section of the hotel. Room was basic with a dreadful draft but did have a clean en-suite. We were only there for a few hours sleep but do not think we would return.
We had a room in the building that probably housed servants in the old days. It looked recently refurbished and had a nice bathroom and two large beds. Cleanliness was not very good with hair on the bathroom floor and dust on the cupboard. There was three chairs and a table in the room which was one too little since we were 2 adults and 2 children. I think the room whould have been better for two adults and one child. There were tea and instant coffee in the room, but they did not refill these during the 4 days we stayed there. Bathroom tub was neither cleaned during room service. The resturant was nice but closed, and we had to choose from a bar menu and eat in the bar room. Food was ok. Breakfast was traditional english, but I had to ask for more eggs and bread as it was not replaced when it ran out. The exceptional main building and the gardens are really nice, but at this price range one expect everything to be perfect. That is the reason I only give 3 stars.…
We were in Leixlip for a family party in nearby Celbridge. We travel to that part of Ireland regularly and, as the hotel we normally use could not accommodate us, we decided to try the Leixlip Manor. The hotel is set in beautiful grounds and is easy to find, although the hotel drive is long and uphill. We couldn't walk it but some would be able to easily. After I had booked the hotel, I read some bad reviews about the Courtyard rooms so tried to book a room in the main hotel but as they were fully booked for the weekend, I was unable to change. However, I am glad we didn't change. Our room was upstairs in one of the courtyard blocks and was a nice size. It was very clean and the bed was comfortable. I had already read that there was a mousetrap in the room but it was tucked in the corner and empty and, as the building is quite old, it didn't really surprise me. We just made sure that any food we had was packed away or left in the car. The bathroom was perfect for our needs and very clean although it did need updating a bit. The shower was one of the best we had used so far. Tea and coffee facilities were in the room and, when asked, the room attendants did get us some more tea bags. I also asked for an iron and ironing board for my party clothes and this was delivered promptly. The receptionist arranged a taxi for us on the night of the party and it arrived bang on time. Breakfast was good although I did have to ask for a few things which were not on our table, ie butter and milk for the tea. It was a self-serve breakfast but I did hear someone ask for an omelette which was delivered to his table. The hotel contacted me in advance to ask if we wanted to book a table for dinner on the night of our arrival which was thoughtful. However, we had planned to meet family so ate elsewhere. There are things to do in the area, ie Castletown House in Celbridge is well worth a visit. Dublin is a bus or train ride away but, as mentioned earlier, we were there to see family so only visited Celbridge and Maynooth.…
Recently we had our parents 60th wedding anniversary surprise party here. From start to finish the hotel staff were seamless in their efforts to make it a perfect day for us. The hotel is stunning, the service was 5 star and the food was gorgeous. Jessica who helped us from the start could not have done enough. Heartfelt thanks to the wonderful staff. The manor itself is absolutely beautiful and spotless in every way. We will never forget our day here it was magical for everyone.
Was here for the first time to celebrate the wedding anniversary of a relative. A lunch had been organised for this celebration and the food was amazing and of gourmet quality! The hotel is small and intimate and ideal for a family celebration. Staff were very friendly and provided a very efficient service.
This is a fabulous building, and the staff are friendly and helpful. The surrounding gardens would be wonderful to explore but it rained the whole time we were there. Food was. Good, and for anyone wanting a quiet get away or a stop of for business, this is the ideal spot.
Beautiful grounds etc. the whole place is soul less. I’ve never seen a more uninviting bar. Terrible. I had to hand the morning coffee back - it was disgusting. I then asked for an Americano and I was charged €3. I’ll never stay here again. Couldn’t fault the staff as they are only doing what they are told.
Myself and my partner stayed here in February for valentines . The Manor House was beautiful, especially the lobby. Our bedroom was a manor room which was lovely , compact but comfortable and the shower was lovely. The food was of a high standard and had options for vegetarians which was great. The staff were lovely and professional and really looked after us, and made us feel very welcome. The gardens were lovely to walk around and we also went down to the village and did the loop walk. We slept well as it was so peaceful there. My highlight was seeing the little pony outside ! Fabulous views !
Lovely character. Beds were very comfortable and the shower was fantastic. We had a small bite to eat in the evening before a lovely walk around the gardens. The only thing we could fault was the waitress in the bar. She was quite inattentive and didn’t help to create any atmosphere which was disappointing as the reception staff and night porter were wonderful.
This was single-handedly the worst place I’ve ever stayed. I’ll start with the pros. We stayed in the Manor House, in the wedding suite. The room itself was lovely. Very spacious, bathroom was excellent. The cons. We arrived down to get food and the restaurant was in complete disarray, with tablecloths on the ground. We took one of the many free tables and promptly ordered two pints of Guinness, served to us in Bulmers glasses. The menu appeared appealing, and we ordered two steaks, medium rare. Unfortunately, what was served to us was anything but. Inedible charred bits of rubber were served to us. Neither of us could finish and when pointed out to the waiter there was a nonchalant response. In addition to this, we asked for the wine menu, at which point we’re told…red or white, we opted for a 30€ bottle of red wine which was a Sauvignon available at your local centra for a steal at 8€. Despite this, and the complaints at the time, the staff insisted on charging full price which, to my despair, we paid. Following this, and due to the other clientele in the bar, we retired to the room. After our wine was finished, we decided to finish on a gin. Unfortunately, the bar staff had not anticipated this, and had no fruit or garnish to include in the drink. Finally, the night was crowned by the mandatory attendance of the Gardai in order to remove the previously mentioned clientele. The breakfast was lovely; but unfortunately couldn’t redeem the leixlip manor hotel. Neither could the gardens which were excellent. I seen a fox. Despite our complaints at the time, nothing was done. Other than the waiter ‘talking to the chef’. Book at your peril.…
