2/10 Poor

Avoid at all costs
Avoid at all costs. Pros: Service at the spa and restaurant was good. Cons: Old hotel, old furniture, mattress was hard and has that little ledge on the edges, like your parents mattress from 40yrs ago. Sheets were tired, I felt disgusting lying there and thankful that it was only 1 night. Air con was not effective. Poor service and communication. When I checked in, I asked for a late checkout, they agreed 12pm and wrote it down. At 11.30 the next day they called, asking why I hadn’t checked out. I told them I had a late check-out which should be in their system, and can they send someone up in 5mins to take my bags. No one came. When I checked in, I asked would there be a spa menu. They said yes it is in the room. It wasn’t in the room, I called reception, they told me to call the spa, the spa told me to ask reception. Seriously, get your act together guys, I want to spend money at the spa and you don’t even want it. The guy at reception told me contradictory hours for the spa service times. Service wise- whenever I had to sign something, they put it in front of me and didn’t say a word- never experienced such rudeness at a hotel. It was a horrible stay and when I checked out, the lady asked how my stay was. I told her that I was disappointed, and the reasons why. Then to sort my payment, she directed me to another lady (whom I thought was more senior), who didn’t say a thing or ask how my stay was, simply printed the invoice for signing.

The Mahawell Reach Hotel was a welcome respite after many hours of driving. Large comfortable rooms with all the usual 4 star hotel inclusions. Great bed. The shower was over the bath and quite deep so if you have mobility issues I would recommend asking for a room with separate shower. The breakfast was the usual but nice buffet style (excellent omelette). We stayed two nights and this hotel was good.
