Very Good

I used this hotel as a base for my business trip to Carlow and the surrounding areas. I arrived at 8.30pm just as the kitchen was closing but they made a very good evening meal for me despite the timing. I booked a executive business suite which was just huge in size, the bed was comfortable and the shower was powerful. The breakfast was a delight of cold and hot food or cereals, the staff were friendly and helpful and the all round appearance of the building was one of clean and fresh.

This is an amazing hotel with friendly and competent staff. The hotel has everything and more you would wish for when taking the kids away. The facilitates within the hotel for children means you would not even need to leave the complex.

 A relaxing time with amazing grub

I loved the room, it was great value for money. Beautiful decor. The food in the bar was exceptional, we had the burger and the steak sandwich and were completely blown away. The staff were helpful. Lovely management. Would completely recommend to a friend!

Warm Welcome

What stood out the most was the warm welcome we received at reception. Such a lovely girl greeted us and checked us in.

Very good for the kids

The suite layout is very comfortable and efficient for a family. The kids had their space in the den and we felt there was a lot of space. The bathroom was quite big as well which is always a plus when you have 3 kids.. Breakfast was excellent. Large selection and very tasty.

Staff were friendly and extremely helpful when I asked to have a bottle of wine on arrival in our room as it was for a birthday occasion (at extra cost) they also included a birthday plate complimentary which made the surprise extra special! Breakfast was lovely and food in bar& grill and steak house restaurants was excellent! Room was spacious and clean

Very enjoyable stay and great family rooms

All staff extremely friendly. Italian restaurant was fabulous and staff there were so welcoming and friendly. Facilities in hotel were amazing and outside.

Just a quick email which I hope finds you well .I had to say I received the most warm genuine and helpful welcome from a lady yesterday I think it was Nicole. Travelling with children with additional needs is hard work & feeling brave I had decided to put my big girl pants on and  Leave my husband at home due to work commitments .the excitement reaches fever pitch we get to the “ holiday house “ as they call the hotel. Nicole was so friendly and welcoming and offered to move our room to the third floor where it may be quieter and the room was ready – this enabled us to check in earlier  and to set up his tube feeding and he still had time to swim . The 4pm check in is difficult time to organise feeds around and sadly we have missed the kids swims previously as a result.

We had a super time and look forward to returning

Halloween Stay

 Could you please pass on our huge thanks to “Frankenstein” on the Halloween train on Sunday. My 4 year old daughter was petrified for most of the experience but Frankenstein took the time to sit and talk to her and play with her during the whole experience so she left smiling (and with a few extra packs of jellies) he really went above and beyond.

Also, a big thanks to Aoife on reception for facilitating our room change (as I had booked the suite instead of den room much to my children’s disappointment)

We’ll be back in April for our 5th stay!

Thank you again

Lovely stay in room 401

Hi Nessa and staff

Just a note to say thank you so much for a lovely stay in room 401 the Amber Springs Hotel.

This was our 3rd stay at your hotel and would like to say a sincere thanks for the stay, I have to say everything was perfect and our kids had a great time and are already asking when we can go back. The new cinema theatre was great too along with the whole set up, the professionalism of the staff and the fantastic food and atmosphere.

We most definitely will be back over the next few months and as regulars each year.

Sincerest thanks

Amazing stay & Christmas experience

We stayed in the hotel in May 2019 and had such a wonderful experience we decided to book for the Christmas package. We stayed 3 nights 24th-27th December and from the moment we arrived it was exceptional. We booked the Family Den suite which was amazing and beautifullu decorated with a huge bathroom. We actually spent a lot of time in the room relaxing and so much floor space for my 3 year old daughter to happily play. The whole Christmas experience was more than I had expected and the Santa train & village was magical and every detail thought of. I was also very impressed with the quality of nibbles and mulled wine presented for the adults and hot chocolate for the children which was included and of a very high standard. The staff were amazing from start to finish. Handsdown the star of our experience was the food. The package included breakfast, Christmas lunch, dinner and buffet and it was exceptional. 10/10 experience and would absolutely book again.

Amazing hotel

Had an amazing time, the kids really enjoyed it and there was a lot to keep them busy. We didnt have to move outside of the hotel. We stayed in the Den suite which was very spacious with 3 children there was so much space. Recommend this hotel we will definitely be back.

Great for families! Young and old!

Incredible hotel which delivers the true feeling of happiness throughout. The staff couldn’t do more to make sure we had an enjoyable experience. It was a joy to be there and they are leaders in customer care. The facilities were great, creative and covered all options and choices.

Fabulous stay for all the family

Just back from a wonderful return stay with our children and their Grandparents. Staff were extremely helpful, nothing was too much trouble. Standard Rooms are very spacious. Our children age 2 and 10 had lots to keep them entertained for the whole weekend. Indoor Play Area and Cinema are fab and kids club was brilliant for our older son. We were all very happy with the food in the Bar and Farina the Italian. Looking forward to another return visit soon.

Just back from…

Just back from yet another stay in the magical Amber springs hotel – this time including the Santa train experience 🎅🏻 The whole team are so friendly and helpful and all are fantastic with kids. The elves were also brilliant and the whole experience was just magical. Also really loved trying out the family den suite this time, complete with bunk beds – a huge hit with my pair 💕

Just back from…

Just back from a 5 night stay. We had a 7 year old with us and stayed in the Amber Suites. The room was huge, more than enough space for 4 and the bathroom has both a bath and separate shower. Have to say, this is a fantastic place to stay with children. The staff are brilliant, nothing too much trouble. So much to do at the hotel, we only went out on 2 of the days. My only negative comment is that the food was very slow to arrive every time we ate in the hotel, not ideal when your child is hungry. It didn’t spoil our stay though and we are planning a return visit very soon.
