We have just returned from a one night stay in Mount Wolseley having already stayed there on a number of previous occasions. However, this time we were allocated a room at the rear of the hotel on the 3rd floor which resembled an attic room with sloping walls and ceiling. The room was cold and in view of the number of dead flies on the windowsill we felt it hadn't been used recently. All the staff in the hotel and golf club were very pleasant and helpful, especially the bar staff. The hotel is in a beautiful setting overlooking the golf course. The reception area is very spacious with a beautiful staircase. The Aaron Lounge is very comfortable and relaxing with nice background music and numerous TV's. This is a lovely location if you want to get away from it all and chill out.

We were warmly greeted at reception on our arrival at the hotel . Great Christmas atmosphere in the bar , service here was excellent . Very pleased with quality of food . Bedroom was comfortable & warm on a cold night ! Enjoyed my visit to the leisure centre which I feel needs an upgrade in the near future . Will visit Mt Wolselely again !

We enjoyed our stay at Mount Wolseley. It was a couple getaway. The front entry and lobby is very grand and spacious. The hotel is very clean and well maintained. We ate dinner in the Aaron Lounge, where the food was good and the service attentive. We ate Breakfast in the Frederick Restraunt, which was quite lenient in its closing time during the mid-term break. Selection was very good and the Gluten Free fare was appreciated, with separate toaster. We used the swimming pool on 4 occasions and the pool is adequate to do lenghts. The toilets in the male dressing area were smelly and somewhat neglected. Coffee dock area could do with an upgrade and updating. We played 9 holes of golf on the beautiful parkland course, designed by Christy O'Connor. We were plagued by some showers and it was very hard to find our balls in the slightly long rough just off the fairway, hampered further by the Autumn leaves. Our overall experience at Mt. Wolseley was very good and we will visit again. Thank you.

Beautiful hotel, great facilities and excellent staff. Vera on reception is one of the nicest hotel receptionists I have ever dealt with. We've stayed here quite a few times and we are looking forward to our next trip :)

Miss scored 2 / 5 on 21/10/2015

Nice hotel however with our room we found old crust of bread beside our bed which means the room was obviously not cleaned out properly. When Mentioned to the manager all we got was ok sorry. also on Check in they were really busy and really not helpful when asking questions about hotel. told me I was to come back at 3 with no apology or anything. Really disappointing Customer Service for a 4 star hotel.

Madeline scored 5 / 5 on 31/08/2015

Stayed in this hotel for four days. It is a lovely hotel. Everything that is said in the advertisement is true. The staff are very friendly, helpful, attentive and more. Nothing is to much trouble. The leisure club is the same. I went swimming and my husband went to the gym. The food was very nice and served in a reasonably time. I would recommend this hotel to anybody. Young couples, families, older couples or just a group of friends. Dublin couple

Just returned home after a wonderful break away in mount wolseley with our 8 month old and 4 year old. From the moment we arrived, the staff could not do enough for us. The room was huge and had a lovely view over the golf course. The breakfast was beautiful and really well organised. My daughter really enjoyed the kids club. The pool is lovely and really clean. We would definitely return.

The Mount Wolseley Hotel and Spa was a beautiful Hotel, the Staff were extremely helpful and welcoming, I could not fault this hotel, and will be making a return visit soon, this Hotel is perfect for a relaxing break, it is quite far from any sort of life so don't plan your stags there but as stated a relaxing weekend on the cards this is your only man.

Catherine scored 1 / 5 on 08/07/2014

Had a great two night break at the Mount Wolseley Hotel in July. The room was nice and clean, water by the bed , tea and coffee and plenty of supplies in the bathroom. The air conditioning was a great bonus as the weather was really hot and was easily operated .Staff were all very efficient and pleasant. Very impressed by the decor of the hotel with a beautiful staircase in the reception area . Breakfast very good with a nice variety of cereals , gluten free included , lots of breads and pastries and of course the traditional full Irish !! Just a ten minute walk into Tullow and lots to see and do , including a visit to the Chocolate Garden of Ireland and Altomont Gardens , lovely for a day out for all the family . This location is well worth a visit and i will definitely be back to stay at the Mount Wolseley ,great value for money , couldn't have asked for more , ten out of ten, well done !!

Carmel scored 3 / 5 on 19/03/2014

We stayed at Mount Wolseley on Sunday 16th March 2014. The hotel and our room were lovely and spotless . The facilities are OK , the pool was cold, the steam room was good, but the sauna was not hot enough. We stayed on an extremely busy night, there was a function in the hotel and the place was packed with local drinkers which did not impress us. If we had know it was going to be so busy we wouldn't have booked as we were looking for a nice relaxing break, instead we arrived into a packed hotel. We ate in the back bar as we could not get a seat in the main bar. The area was messy due to the volume of customers and the staff were excellent but completely run off their feet. The food was delicious. After dinner we could not get served at the bar nor could we get a seat close to the bar so we just gave up and went back to the room very frustrated. There was no sign of a manager in the place all night. Overall we didn't enjoy it and we would not return there again at such a busy time.

We would highly recommend this hotel to anyone wanting a nice relaxing break as it has something for everyone from golf, spa, to entertaining children.We played golf on Wednesday and the staff in golf club were more than helpful, thank you Martina and Aoife for all your help. Also thank you to Gerry Lavin for making our stay so special and to all staff in Mount Wolseley for a very special few days .

Excellent hotel - clean, warm and welcoming. Breakfast excellent. Gym and swimming pool are excellent. Menu in Aaron Bar is restricted and not too cheap!!!!

William scored 1 / 5 on 10/09/2013

Excellent rooms and facilities, however the staff at dinner and breakfast were absolutely terrible. The worst service I've had to endure in a long, long time.

Shai scored 4 / 5 on 18/07/2013

Beautiful hotel with fantastic amenities, room was brilliant- comfortable, well maintained, clean & had good facilities. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Had to give only four stars for a couple of reasons; the TV was old but more importantly, some channels didn't work and all were quite fuzzy. Also the hot breakfast was awful, couldn't eat it at all- food was fried in (what seemed to me) old oil. I will still go back to Mount Wolesley and recommend it to my friends.

John scored 5 / 5 on 31/05/2013

We stayed here for two nights and it was a very relaxing get away! The hotel is beautiful and the grounds of the hotel are even more beautiful! The rooms are very comfortable and the bathroom facilities are great! The lobby/bar area are decorated beautifully and the leisure facilities are great (especially the jacuzzi). Our only complaint would be the bar food (found a bone in my Thai curry).

Gemma scored 1 / 5 on 08/05/2013

By far worst customer service ive ever encountered in a irish hotel, staff really unprofessional and unorganised. Still awaiting response from hotel on issues of weekend.

Emma scored 4 / 5 on 13/04/2013

We stayed with our 10 week old baby & a 2 year old. Hotel was ideal for us. We had a spacious room which was very clean & comfortable. There was a large area upstairs with sofas which was a really comfortable and quiet place for me to feed the baby. The pool was great for our 2 year old as they have a small kiddies pool & we enjoyed bar food in the bar although perhaps a little pricey for bar food. Breakfast was lovely with a wide ranging menu. Overall, would highly recommend a stay here. Only slight negative is that if you like to go for long walks on the grounds you can't really as its mostly golf course..

Vpg scored 5 / 5 on 05/02/2013

Had a great stay in Mount Wolseley . Staff very friendly and helpful. Room beautifully clean and spacious. Pool, Sauna & Steam room lovely and clean, nice and quite in both areas which was good for a Friday and Saturday. Food was excellent, breakfast each morning had a good variety and good quality. we had a lovely meal in Frederick's Restaurant. The menu in bar is good but could do with a couple of fresh fish dishes added in. My wife had a SPA treatment and found it to be excellent. Will definitely be back soon.

Lovely hotel very friendly staff and food in Aaron's lounge was lovely and good value. Only complaint I have is our room seem to be over a boiler or something that made a loud humming noise that would go off throughout the night and did wake myself and my husband a couple of times.

Shirley scored 4 / 5 on 29/01/2013

2nd time at this hotel and sadly this time we suffered a very cold room on the first day and after making reception aware of the problem we were offered a small electric floor heater as a substitute. Our response was that it was november and comfortable hotel room in 5 star hotel is what we had hoped and paid for, we eventually were offered a change of room [with heat]. We moved to other room and little time to get ready for dinner. Next problem began with a very long wait on food and particularly between the starter and main course, thank goodness we had another couple at our table to make conversation with [ although it was thier 1st time and we recommended the hotel ]. We were not offered bread as others in the dining room were, we never received our iced water and yet other tables were receiving topups of water every 10 minutes. However the food was indeed very good even though quite a lot of what was on the menue was not available.. 2nd day dining room was indeed much quicker and we were served all that was asked for and again the food was great until we left the dining room and retired to the lounge for a nightcap and then the sevice went downhill. I had to approach a waitress after siiting for some time and when she came she did not know what whiskys were available but we ordered 2 calypso coffees and 1 decaf and she was to return with the whisky on offer, instead she returned with 2 decafs and 2 calypso [no whisky so we just accepted as we had waited long enough. Sorry we have this poor report on what should have been a non complicated stay in this lovely hotel. Not sure if we will return again.

By Lorraine on 03.Nov.2012 Stayed in Mount Wolseley Hotel for a midweek break for Halloween. Lovely hotel. Room very spacious and clean. Customer service excellent. Did not use spa. Very clean pool area. Did not eat in restaurant. Very good selection of foods for breakfast, and very well presented. I found the bar menu to be a bit limited. Would definitely recommend this hotel to friends, and families.
