    A real shame: disappointing standards

    Incredibly disappointing stay. It was the last night of our honeymoon. The hotel is beautiful and staff were very friendly. However, we found the cleanliness in the hotel to be unacceptably poor. On arrival we found a dirty towel in our bathroom and the toilet had not been properly cleaned. The spa was also not clean when we arrived with dirty towels strewn about the surfaces - despite the spa being empty at the time. Also, the restaurant in the hotel was under construction and meals were served in the ballroom which was a huge room with no atmosphere. Patrons should have been told this before booking to ensure that they were fully informed about what they were paying for. All things considered we were so disappointed with what felt like Celtic Tiger complacency. Our complaint was met with a small discount on our room fee. However, this is simply not good enough. Our hospitality industry really needs to step it up to reach the best standards.
