I didn't stay as a guest but had dinner. Aoife and her colleagues looked after us extremely well; don't think service could have been better. The duck main course was delicious. Would definitely return.

We had two wonderful meals in this intimate restaurant. The staff were friendly and nothing was too much trouble. The lighting and mood is conducive to a romantic evening. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves

The atmosphere in the Candle Room is of quiet elegance with soft classical music in the background. It is special without being stuffy or overbearing because the staff is so well trained and friendly. When they place or remove plates, there is nary a sound...More
