The penthouse suite is one of the best hotel rooms I've ever seen . Unparalleled view of Bantry Bay and the sunset, in an ultra spacious and comfortable accommodation. Shower could be a bit better and there is no room service at night - which...More

Thank you for taking the time to give us some feed back, I'm so glad you enjoyed the penthouse.

Cool staff, close to the City and a beautiful view over Bantry Bay. The right touch of luxuary, combiend with very friendly people. Perfect if you prefer privacy and "only" breakfast and probably some light snacks. It's not a typical hotel with full kitchen service...More

We stayed one night in the penthouse and loved it - I could have stayed many many more nights. Wonderful hotel, with wonderful staff. Everything very beautifully done. Thanks to the team and their staff for an amazing stay!

Thank you so much for the kind words, such a shame you could not have stayed with us for longer.

Reviewed 10 April 2017

An excellent location with excellent staff and excellent food. We were welcomed by Chris who was very familiar with hospitality and recommended some fancy seafood restaurant as well. Moreover, we felt really safe that there was a security guard 24/7.

Hi, Sadly we do not accept children under the age of 12years. With lots of open balconies, stairways and sheer drops we feel it is too much of a risk. Kind Regards, Marnie Fennell
