We highly recommend The Step House Hotel. 90 minutes from Bray, this fabulous hotel was a pleasure to visit. Each area of hotel is exquisitely furnished to compliment the architecture and every window embraces the outdoor courtyards and manicured gardens, This family run hotel exudes warmth and we were made to feel at home immediately. The reception's open fire was lit in the afternoon and again next morning which makes for a lovely atmosphere. The Cellar restraunt is elegant and bright and served one of the best breakfasts in years! We inquired abut the Penthouse suite and the waitress offered to give us a mini tour, how cool. I can't wait to go back and spend even longer in this hotel and to see the friendly faces again.Definitely great value for money too.

Room Tip: Rooms elegantly furnished, very comfortable beds, views of courtyards, flower gardens, a range of ou...

Went with group of girl friends. Had great night. Lovely selection on menu. Great area for groups in bar. Bar staff a little slow to serve drinks can be left waiting at bar for some time. Lobby is lovely and toilets are lovely.

We were invited by our hosts Cait & James Coady to spend a weekend with them in Borris. We arrived early on the Friday evening to be warmly welcomed as usual by staff and our hosts. The gardens are in great shape and worthy of spending time there. The food as always was delicious. Two of the waiting staff need special mention - Michael & Rebecca. Housekeeping was great. Views from all rooms are great The walks around Borris have great views of Mount Leinster. But the warmth of the welcome and the "hands on" of our hosts is what makes the Stephouse Hotel a special place. Would recommend this hotel to everyone we know!

The food is top class. As good as any top class restraunt in a big city. Service etc first class. The portions look a little small but the flavour more than makes up so full marks to all. The surrounds with gardens are really nice. Will definitely be back again .

We had been to wedding here a few years back and when we saw a promotion on Pigsback we decided we would give it a try, we weren't disappointed. Smooth easy check in and we were advised to book dinner, which we did. There was a buzz around the place with a lot of people eating lunch while we were checking in,always a good sign
Bright clean room with a small balcony overlooking beautiful gardens. Big bathroom with separate bath and shower.
Dinner was in the bar and it was full at 8pm on a Wednesday night, pleasant friendly staff, great service and the food was good. I had the Chicken and my husband had the fish and chips, Crete brûlée for dessert and an excellent French coffee.
Breakfast the following morning was downstairs, lovely fresh fruit salad (that contained fresh fruit not tinned), pastries and cereal, lovely hot breakfast.
The deal we booked on Pigsback was €99 B&B and a bottle of wine in the room, we really enjoyed our stay and we will be back.

Stayed: July 2017, travelled as a couple
