  • Liked: Cleanliness, amenities, property conditions & facilities

The grounds that the hotel is set on are beautiful, with lovely walking trails and cycling tracks. We also liked the pool a lot. The staff, while always friendly and courteous, struggled to get the basics right - like bringing out the whole order without forgetting one dish. This happened almost every meal. The main working in the bike shed though was very friendly and helpful always. Our room (Derry) was cramped and had one window which looked out onto a construction site. Builders would be standing there looking into our window. At no point were we warned that there was construction taking place.
