Just back from a two day break in this hotel with my sisters to celebrate a birthday and what a surprise. I recommended the hotel from reviews from this site even though I was not paying for the break so I was a bit apprehensive in case it did not live up to others expectations. I needn't have worried, what a gem when my sister was booking two rooms she asked for reduction but they gave her an upgrade instead and the rooms were really lovely, quiet, clean and large. It had lovely old world charm without the tattiness often associated with 'old world charm'. We sat in the 'Garden Room' in front of the fire before and after dinner with a drink (had it all to ourselves) and soaked up the history of the building which I believe was once a 5 bedroomed house owned by two sisters. Right up until we were checking out I thought this is the most perfect hotel I stayed in at this price but unfortunately a tiny thing irked me when my sister was paying the bill. The dinner we had one night was included in the offer but we had two bottles of wine at the meal and we were charged a service charge on top of cost of these it was only about six euro so was nothing really but just it left a bad taste in my mouth I never was charged this before in any hotel I have ever stayed in either a three or five star hotel as I say a small thing but just one of those things that annoy me. I don’t know if we knew that we were going to be charged this service charge would we have left a generous tip. The service was so good and friendly and food lovely both in the bar and restaurant so a pity really I had that little gripe I'm sure others will think I'm petty but just 'one of those things'. Would I go back - I certainly will.
