This is my second time visiting, had a really good experience 5 years ago at the same hotel which influenced my decision to book again. I stayed one night this time. The room is really spacious with lots of luxurious amenities provided. The bathroom is also very spacious with a deluxe bath tub, really nice for a good hot bath after a whole day of walking. Dinner is fantastic as expected with a three-course menu, a very wide variety of choices available. Breakfast also excellent. Will definitely visit again. Collapse

My wife and I stayed for 3 nights and had a lovely room in this comfortable hotel. The bar staff and the dining room staff were friendly and helpful and the tasting menu excellent. But what let down our stay was the cold attitude of those who staffed reception. They just could not have cared less whether you were there or not. This extended from a total lack of interest at checkin, to almost ignoring you as you walked by them during your stay, at times being non-exhistant so that bar or waiting staff had to stand in for them, and eventually when we checked out it took the person on duty all of their time to get me my bill which then proved to be wrong. Unfortunately this let down all the good work by other staff in the hotel. A shame. Ratings - 4* for Service and Value, 5* for location. Collapse

We stayed for 2 nights mid week in April and had a lovely time. We had a dog-friendly room with a small, enclosed patio so I didn't have to keep the dog on a lead. A dish, biscuits and a towel were provided for him and he could go into one of the dining rooms and a lounge if we wished. He was made welcome. Our room was lovely as was the bathroom. A very comfortable large bed and the patio had chairs and a table too. The food was out of this world and the wine list was extensive. We ate some unusual and very interesting things....including hogget.....delicious and recommended by the friendly barman. I had the same pudding, tonka bean, twice because it was fantasic . All the food was superb, thank you chef. I don't think I've ever enjoyed better meals. The staff were all young and enthusiastic. They were knowledgeable, friendly and helpful. The managers were away but should be very proud of their well-turned-out staff. Lovely grounds. I would really recommend this beautiful hotel if you like good food. It was a great experience and I'd love to go back. T Collapse

Spent two nights for birthday treat. When we arrived we found that our room had been upgraded and it was newly decorated with a large comfortable bed. A great start! Dinner was incredible. The chef is a genius. The menu was interesting - for a starter I enjoyed a langoustine with pigs trotter. Different! But absolutely fabulous. Pigs trotter by the way was some ' pork crackling" the food was amazing and in between courses we were brought little delicacies of food. The staff were efficient and friendly. The one and only downside was the music at breakfast. Collapse

If you like clean, luxurious getaways, delicious culinary masterpieces, beautiful surroundings, helpful, polite and hospitable staff that will stop at nothing to make you feel comfortable during your stay, and plenty to do, you'll be in for a real treat. I feel like I can't do this place enough justice with my review - it's just too high quality. You just HAVE to try it out for yourself if you haven't already been - it's guaranteed to put a smile on even the grumpiest of travel companions, and is able to change the minds of the pickiest eaters. Good for you Rothay Manor, you're a real gem Collapse
