“Gorgeous Hotel”
Reviewed 30 January 2012

We really enjoyed our stay, from the moment we arrived we where greeted by very friendly staff ( as we came through the front door we where greeted by a very friendly bar man). The food was gorgeous in the restaurant, and after an amazing 2 hours in the Spa we had a beautiful brunch in the front bar. Nice crowd and ambiance in the bar that evening, and a warm and welcoming fire to keep the cold of January away.

We stayed in the Suite, which was amazing, and added that little bit extra to a very romantic weekend

Will definitely be back

Room Tip: The Suites are amazing and really good value

Stayed at the Villa Rose Hotel as part of a couples weekend. The staff were extremely helpful, obliging, pleasant and very welcoming. They made our two day stay feel very comfortable and memorable.

We ate at Fara's Restaurant and found the food atmosphere and service to be second to none. The staff again were very accommodating and attentive without getting the feeling they were looking over your shoulder as you can get in some places.

Before leaving we tried The V Spa and left the hotel stress free and relaxed before our trip back to Dublin. It is a must visit to help unwind and de-stress .

I didnt stay in the hotel only had a spa day. I spent a day in the V spa with a friend of mine. The treatments were some of the best we have ever had. Felt like they tailored the treatment to your needs. The thermal Suite is brilliant could do with more hangers for robes. Relaxation room is so tranquil. The fish are a lovely touch. Would have like if the girl told me her name before the treatment. Would definately recommend

My husband and I stayed at the Villa Rose for three nights over this New Years for a wedding. Our room was very nice, good bed and lots of room. I was initially nervous because our room, though on the third floor, was above the main ballroom but we never heard anything and there was a wedding or event every night we were there. Breakfast was good and the hotel's bar was an excellent place to hang out. And the hotel did an amazing job with the wedding we attended.

The best part was the hotel staff, especially Tracy and Megan. They were extremely helpful and helped us out tremendously. We can't thank them enough for all they did.

Room Tip: The rooms in the newer part of the hotel seemed a little more modern

My husband and I recently stay in this hotel and it was lovely. The staff were very helpful and the food was great. We also took advantage of the spa and had treatments, I can only say that it was pure heaven and we were very well looked after. We would recommend this to anyone who is looking for a nice relaxing break, although it central for all the local night-life.
