“Definitely Five Star”
Reviewed 14 February 2012

After an exhausting week of business in Dublin, my partner and I decided to stay for two nights in Wicklow, which is my partner's ancestral home. This was an incredible surprise. Unlike other writers, I didn't think the outside was much to look at, and the grounds were very limited. However, the hotel itself was elegant and beautiful, and as soon as you walk into the lobby, you see comforting wooden floors, open spaces, fireplaces and the view of Sugar Loaf. Check-in was friendly and easy, and we were advised of an upgrade option, which actually cost us less. Our room was more like a one-bedroom apartment. There was a huge bathroom, closet-dressing room, living room and bedroom, all with view of the mountains. No complaints about the room. The beds were extremely comfortable. We immediately decided to take a scenic drive through Wicklow, visiting Glendaloch, and the staff gave us a map with a marked course to follow. When we returned, we unwound with a drink in the lounge on the far side of the lobby, enjoying the view. Dinner in the Gordon Ramsey restaurant was special, with an interesting (but not weird) menu, and everything was delicious. I was happy Gordon Ramsey wasn't there, because this visit was for stress reduction! Next day after an amazing breakfast buffet, we drove to the Vail of Avoca. We had dinner in the lobby bar, which was almost as good as the restaurant. The final morning before we left, we visited nearby Powerscourt estate, which, if it hadn't been raining, we would have walked to. At that point, I understood why there were no extensive hotel grounds. How could they compete with Powerscourt? Powerscourt was well worth the visit, with enormous scenic grounds, gardens, and ponds to walk by, in addition to a castle tower. While this hotel stay was expensive, it wasn't outrageous, although we may have gotten a better rate because it was in January. Definitely a recommendation.

Room Tip: Although the suites with the views are stunning, if you don't plan to spend a lot of time in the...

This is one of the most luxurious hotels that I have ever stayed at in my entire life!!! It is sooo elegant and classy.
We upgraded to a suite and it was worth every penny! The bathrooms were amazing, best bed I have ever slept in and I loved their walk in closets!!!!
Customer service was excellent and their staff was so friendly. They even had a driver(I forget his name, Russian guy) drop us off into the village nearby so we could drink and pick us up afterwards!!!! He was really friendly.
If I ever get the chance to return to Ireland, I would love to stay here again!

My only downfall is we had chosen this hotel to eat at Chef Gordon Ramsay's restaurant and it was closed for renovations and we weren't informed. (Nov. 2010)

Room Tip: Upgrade to a suite!

Stayed here for 3 nights for a conference. A lovely hotel, service is impeccable. Food is great - we ate in Gordon Ramsays restaurant one night. McGills pub is really good

My room had an lcd tv mounted in the bathroom mirror, heated marble flooring and remote control curtains and lighting. Amazing!

The spa is really nice too, the staff are great
