This hotel is in a great position in Bantry Bay, close to superb beaches and all other city amenities. Rooms are clean and comfortable. They may lack some of the luxurious touches of the posher hotels in town but this is reflected in the price. Staff are very friendly and helpful and the breakfast is up with the best around.

Hotel is close to the ocean, we could see the waves coming in from the lobby and it is a short walk to the beach to watch the beautiful sunsets. Not suitable for swimming, cold and rough. The staff were friendly and helpful,...
