    Very good

    The procession of staff that came to sort out the problems we had were very nice.

    There were 2 portable beds in the room that we hadn't asked for when we checked in. The TV and phone didn't work and there was no sugar in the beverage tray. The hotel had the feel of an army barracks from the outside and the lough took some finding.

    Everything. From pulling in to the semi remote driveway to seeing the castle house to the beautiful rooms to the friendly staff people. We got an amazing rate through Booked.net and were told by the staff that it must've been an error. Would have been happy with a price double of what we paid for two. Great food too, one of the best breakfasts we had in Ireland, best dinner too.

    It wasn't in my gps' database! Ha, but thankfully Booking gave us the satellite coordinates.

    Luxurious, Warm, Cosy, Unpretencious, Excellent staff, Superb Food. We have stayed in other places claiming to be the same level of accommodation and service - Lough Eske have pitched it perfectly. The staff extremely helpful - no false airs or graces. Spa and pool facilities excellent. The best Bar Food we have ever experienced - Our meal in the restaurant was a culinary delight with attentive staff who all knew the contents of every dish. A wine list to suit every pocket and taste. We felt a five star hotel should not have a buffet breakfast -we were wrong. With a chef preparing pancakes, eggs, omelettes etc in front of you and ever refreshed servers always full of hot items

    None whatsoever

    The location is in the beautiful countryside with trees all around the castle. We were upgraded to the Vice Presidential Suite, one of only four rooms in the original castle. Our suite was beautiful and our stay at the castle was great. We are so happy we got to experience Solis Lough Eske Castle.

    We had to leave after one night.

    The staff were welcoming and helpful. Everything in the hotel was to the finest detail to make a stay relaxing, memorable and comfortable. The spa is a wonderful place to leave the rest of the world behind. The bedrooms are spacious and the beds are so comfortable . The open fires in the small rooms are homely and warming. It is a pity that there is a blowdown in the chimney that blackens the fireplace . The breakfasts are super.

    Cost for solo occupants should be considered as it is such a lovely place for one to relax.
