We stayed for two nights in a deluxe room. The room was spacious and the bathroom was quite nice. We were surprised at the lack of bathrobes or slippers given that the room cost was €200.00/ night. There was an unstocked mini bar which was also surprising. We noted letters missing on signs on our considerable walk from reception to our room. We were told the spa and leisure centre were "on our floor". However, access to the leisure centre was through a serious of stairs in the bowels of the hotel and the pool seemed relatively small. Breakfast was enjoyable. We are in the coach house on the second evening. The service was appalling and we both got uncooked chips with our meals. Not undercooked but uncooked. Nobody asked us how our meal was at any point, there were only 5 other in the restaurant yet tables around us were not cleared for the 50 mins we were there. We were brought no water, not was the cutlery we were not using, taken away from our table. There was, in fact, nobody available to express our dissatisfaction and there appeared to be a distinct lack of management, visible or otherwise, throughout the hotel. We booked on the basis of a recommendation. However, we will be advising others to avoid.

Very friendly helpful staff. We stayed recently for a friends gathering. The hotel was busy with a wedding but I must say the hotel staff were extremely helpful despite being very busy. Breakfast on Sunday morning provided plenty of choice. Overall I could not fault it.

We had a lovely one night stay in carton house maynooth. All staff were very friendly and helpful in both the main hotel and clubhouse. Our room was really spacious and the bathroom had a gorgeous bath and tropical shower.
Breakfast was of good quality. Improvements would be a better quality jams and brown bread options and the availability of dairy free products.
We had a meal In the clubhouse and it was delicious. We will return to carton house for future stays.

pleasant receptionist, lovely spacious room. very comfortable bed. Pity the lighting in the bathroom is not better, difficult to do make up. Bath quite slippy, not inclined to use a bath mat. Breakfast good, would expect table service in a 5 star hotel.
