5/5 Excellent

  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities

Beautiful setting the hotel is undergoing some renovations in the old part around the reception area but didn’t make our stay any less enjoyable. Rooms have recently been renovated to a very high standard

  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities

The shower button was broken in room 236 and the only dining area was the fitzgerald 'suite' which was only pub grub but we still paid over 134€ for a 1 course neal with 2 bottles of wine. Not the usual standard from Carton which is why we were so disappointed. Hope for a better experience next time.

Beautiful setting, lovely room and very friendly and helpful staff. Our visit was to celebrate my daughter's birthday and the staff were very kind to her and it made the occasion very special for us.

  • Disliked: Staff & service, property conditions & facilities

The standard was well below that expected. The bathroom was poor, with complicated taps that we had to get help to operate. The fittings fell off in the bath. We pointed out the flaws to the receptionist when leaving: she INSISTED that the room had been recently refurbished. In this century perhaps! I ordered a beer (Smithwicks) but that was not available! Finally, the receptionist declined to provide a statement on check out so I don't know what additional charges were applied. Very strange, and well below the star rating on Expedia.
