Historical Traveller Reviews of Carlton Millrace Hotel
Wonderfulfrom A TripAdvisor Member
Lovely hotel, lovely staff.from BOXtheFOX
Very nice, but just thatfrom medicIreland
The reception area is very nice, and staff on arrival were very helpful and pleasant. Check in was very smooth, apart from only one receptionist being present at the desk, who seemed to be also taking direct calls, as if the hotel did not have a switch board or operator.
We had arrived early but they did the room priority so we got in soon. We were located on the third floor, two lifts in the main reception were available to whiz us up.
The room was....nice....a little on the small side, but generally what you would expect from a 4 star. The view from our window was an unkempt agricultural field, and a graveyard to the left.
The bathroom was nice, marble, however the shower knob was a little cumbersome, and required some delicate fine tuning to maintain constant temperature.
The presentation in the rooms was excellent; the housekeeping staff were very pleasant and made an effort in the rooms. Little things like tidying and placing towels neatly.
Tea and Coffee facilities present and in working order. There is however no bottled water placed in the rooms.
We had dinner on our first night in Lady Lucy’s with its wonderful panoramic view of Bunclody. The meal was beautiful, and staff again unsurpassable. Well worth it. The table d'hote was €37.00 and offered
great variation. The only problem with the meal was the low quota of staff present, only two waitress seemed to be circulation on the floor, and there was often someone waiting to be seating to settle their bill. This is however a managers responsibility, and the staff present did as best they could, which was quite satisfactory.
In the morning however Lady Lucy was transformed into a free for all breakfast. On one morning I was approached three times to submit my room number, the food was nice, the usual. There was never enough morning papers to go around, and the early bird did indeed catch the worm in this regard.
The Leisure centre was not what I expected from this 4 star resort. It in itself requires a major face lift. The swimming pool resembles a scalene triangle. It was however divided into a band of screaming kids, and a children’s swimming lesson group. Paint crumbled from the walls in patches. The Jacuzzi was standard with the sauna a little weak. The steam room was perfect apart from its tiled interior. Lockers appeared to be free of charge, and a key was supplied with an elastic band. Towels were also provided. To be honest, the leisure centre was 3 star at most.
On our last day we sampled the bar food. It was good, and the place had a nice atmosphere.
I really want to give this place Above Average but it needs to do a little more woork for this. If it wasnt for its pleasant, helpful staff it would sink lower down the ratings.
Overall? High grade 3 star hotel.
No Faultsfrom DougalDublin
Everyone was just so frendly- bar staff, waitresses, reception etc. Nothing was too much trouble.
The price was fantastic too.
Then we discovered Lady Lucy's Restaurant. It is on the top floor, overlooking the little town though a semi circle of windows!
The look and surroundings of this restaurant are truly gorgeous.
Then the food! Top Drawer food and we were so amazed by the qualty of the starter(Dressed Crab and bacon salad) we sent a pint of Heineken beer to the chef who cooked it. Haven't ever done that before!!
Then the main course- Fillet Steak- another 2 pints were sent to the kitchen!!
The pudding was to die for too.
You have to stay here. Excellent everything!!!!!!!!!
Brilliant Hotelfrom johnburns
Very comfortable large bedrooms with all amenities you would expect from a 4 star hotel.
The food was wonderul in this hotel and there was a great buffet breakfast in the mornings .
Another hotel that i highly reccomend
Would be happy to returnfrom PaddyRollingStone
We stayed in a family suite (a 2 bedroom apartment adjacent to the hotel). The accomodation was fine, but as previous reviewer noted there was a kitchen area with a kettle but no teapot, and just 4 cups and saucers and 4 teaspoons, no other cutlery, plates or glasses. However, we did buy some stuff in the local Centra for our lunch and I went to the bar and the waitress was perfectly happy to give me 6 plates, 6 knives and forks and she brought over 6 glasses and a high-chair.
Also there was no TV remote in the room but it was sorted as soon as we mentioned it.
The rooftop restaurant was good, apart from being left a long time for someone to take our order. The swimming pool was a peculiar triangular shape with one side being a wall, so there was no normal deck/poolside on that side.
I found the people in the town of Bunclody to be friendly and helpful, including in the Chantry Restaurant - although the food, while not bad, didn't match the service.
Overall I was very happy with the hotel.

Nice but Problemsfrom Donnagh
The noise at night is something I have never experienced in any hotel, I had read on trip advisor before that noise was a problem but certainly didnt realise the extent of the problem. We warned!
Last but not least, be advised not to stay when the weather is bad as there seems to be a problem with the water supply. After filling a bath with water, it was a dark brown colour and did not clear from the taps after running. Even after changing rooms, the problem persisted. This is a problem that the hotel is clearly aware off but have not acted upon or seem too distressed about.
After highlighting the problem, we were looked at, as if we were over reacting and played down the problem. After beeing fobbed off with reassurance that there would be follow up by the general manager, alas, so follow up was ever seen. So, if you are ok to soak in a bath of murky water of wash your teeth in it, this should be just right! Pitty realy as this is a lovely hotel.
Would return again.from leex
Top Local Tips for Wexford
Toffee and Thyme If your looking for an excellent restaurant in Enniscorthy go to 'Toffee and Thyme', its expensive but worth it! Food and service are unsurpassable! Probably the best in Enniscorthy.
Nice Chinese Restaurant The new chinese restaurant on the main street in Bunclody serves excellent food at reasonable rates. Although a bit bright, it's a nice place
A nice place to eat Their is a wine bar and bistro right next door to the hotel and the food is out of this world and reasonably priced as well
