The hotel is traditionally decorated and it adds to the charm. The spa is superb and the staff are fantastic. Food is delicious and service is brilliant. It's...

I don't normally write reviews but I promised myself on this occasion I would. We arrived at the hotel on a horrible wet windy evening (in August!!!) to be greeted by a lovely warm glowing fire in the reception area. We were checked in by the very friendly girl on reception who then showed us to our room. Firstly when...

We arrived at the weekend at this hotel and was greeted by an older lady in reception. She was very friendly and smiled a lot. The staff were incredibly friendly, however this is not a 4 star hotel. It has great potential as the view onto the beach are spectacular. The rooms were long and wide, old carper, bathroom was...

We chose this hotel on a recent road trip around Ireland and Northern Ireland. We arrived a little late after visiting the spectacular Slieve League - we were shown straight to our rooms and were told even though late the restaurant would be available to us. The hotel has a fantastic position (this is why I booked), we chose a...
