Disappointing and Underwhelming
Was excited to stay in Lough Eske as it’s been on the bucket list for ages. So a friend and I booked a twin room and a night in the restaurant. The approach to the hotel is beautiful and the facade is certainly impressive, as were the lobby and common areas. Having checked in we went to our room, which was large and grand but a little worn (definite signs of wear and tear on the furniture). What we immediately noticed was the heat of the room (it having been quite a warm day) and lack of air conditioning. There was a small standing fan in the room, which only went on when we put in the key card, so we managed to open the window a fraction and went for a walk. However, it was even hotter when we arrived back so we called reception. Very disappointed to be told that this is something they know happens when it’s a warm day but the only offer was to give us another fan; which did absolutely nothing to bring down the temperature. So neither of us were able to sleep that night; being uncomfortably stuffy. Dinner was also underwhelming. Service was very slow and empty glasses were left on our table for the entirety of the meal. Our mains (duck and beef) were nice but nothing special, and not worth the hefty price tag. (Also not sure how 4 baby potatoes and 1 square of butternut squash counts as a ‘seasonal veg accompaniment‘ for 2!). Desert (raspberry soufflé) was the only saving grace! Breakfast was also very underwhelming, and therefore we are unlikely to return in future.
