Historical Traveller Reviews of The d hotel Hotel
pure luxury, (lmcgl)from lmcgl
the cocktail bar in the 'd' is very good , great range of cocktails each very well presented. sitting at the terrace in the mid summer seemed as if you were on a cruise liner at sea, as you look over the river boyne.
The food in the bar is fine, however i was more impressed with the a la carte menu. every piece of food i placed in my mouth was unbelievable tasty!
room service throughout the night was very handy and staff were friendly and endlessly at your beckon call.
A lot done - more to dofrom TAJK
Fantastic hotelfrom LauraR4
Great servicefrom miamac
Nice hotel but appalling restaurantfrom MollyGuck
We won't, however, be returning due to a truly awful experience in the hotel restaurant. Both service and food were seriously lacking. We arrived at 9.30p.m. and were shown to a lovely table beside the aquarium. After 10mins of musing over the menu the waiter arrived with water for the table. He asked if we were ready to order. 'Yes', we responded. The waiter then disappeared from the table and did not return. At 10p.m. we caught the attention of a waitress and asked to order some wine. When the wine was being poured we were asked if our food order had been taken yet. 'No', we responded and once again the waitress left the table but did not return.
At 10:15p.m. another cheerful waitress arrived at our table with a bright smile to ask if everything was ok. I asked if it was possible to place our order as we had been seated for a full 45mins. Finally our order was taken. When the food arrived it was not worth the wait. Three grey, lime cured prawns sitting atop cubes of pineapple looked wholly unappetising. So much so that my partner decided not to eat them and stuck to the bread instead. In fairness, the cheerful waitress offered a complimentary drink as a consolation but we refused, happy to accept our mistake in ordering the dish. My tian of crab was very average and too large a helping. It was completely overcomplicated by a big scoop of sorbet sitting on top and it in no way complimented the dish.
On to the mains we went and were just as disappointed. My partner ordered a rare fillet of beef. It was served medium which ruined it for him and an unremarkable sauce did nothing to save it. My salmon was virtually tasteless. The orzo rice with which it was served was very bland although I did enjoy a hint of fennel in one particular mouthful.
We really should have stopped there, but my partner being of the optimistic variety, decided he couldn't resist the temptation of warm chocolate fondant. It looked stunning on the plate and the shot glass of dark cherry sauce was a nice addition. However, the fondant itself tasted mainly of egg and little or no chocolate. I had a coffee which was so bitter I couldn't finish it.
The only enjoyable thing about this experience was a lovely bottle of Wolf Blass Bilyara Shiraz 2004.
I had intended to express my dissatisfaction about the restaurant when asked the mandatory 'did you enjoy your stay?' as I was checking out of the hotel. Unsurprisingly, the receptionist didn't bother to ask!
Mixed thoughts but service greatfrom logonmar
Room fine but unexceptional. Big drawback was lack of air conditioning and even an open window didn't even reduce temperature sufficiently to permit an easy nights sleep. For a new hotel would have expected air conditioning.
Hotel unexceptional but receptionist made it a good experience overall
Wonderful experiencefrom diannemcg
The restaurant was surperb. We ate there 2 nights and both nights the food and service was excellent.
They are doing much developemnt in town so the views were not the greatest but will be in the future.
It's an ideal place for touring the Boyne Valley.
Simply Awfulfrom Cabriolet
Really nicefrom Ger75
Wonderful stayfrom pierre45
This was our best experience.The hotel was modern and our room had a balcony overlooking the river.It was cool at night despite the heat.The best was the staff ,helpful,friendly and accomodating.We had dinner at the hotel.The food was above average but not special.The attempt was for modern cuisine .
I have to say that beeing from paris ,perhaps i had very high standards.Probably its the best in the area.Also at 110 E the room was good value,specially for Ireland
