Receptionist was very pleasant and helpful (great start on any Holiday.Breakfast selection & Quality was excellent.Leisure facilities were very good &flexible and spotless.Evening meals were very good and the Guinness was GREAT.
People smoking at entrance to hotel at front door,
The setting of the hotel, the swimming pool, sauna and jacuzi, the restaurant, food and service.
So me of the furniture & fittings in the room could do with modernisation.
Had to complain about smell of paint and was given complimentary meal for the inconvenience. Good hotel and would stay again but would like a bigger bed than standard 4'6"
Bed too small and no armchair in room
Rooms perfect Staff very helpful Food was great
Couldn't find any faults
The views are spectacular , the food delicious , the leisure facilities great and the staff are extremely friendly and efficient.
Location, lovely view from room and restaurant Great big comfortable room and bed Staff very nice although a bit dis-organised in restaurant. Would recommend staying here for b & b but not for dining.
Our deal came with a two course set meal which at 160 euros for one night for 2 seemed reasonable at the time but the food was very basic with only 4 really poor choices, 2 of which were chicken strips? and vegetable curry. Not what you would expect for an evening meal experience and very small portions! Other people around us complaining of white wine served warm, no bread with soup etc. My husbands first course was supposed to come with a selection of breads, we're still waiting! He got cod with was a tiny portion and he spent most of the meal picking the bones out! I got roast beef, another tiny portion served on a spoonful of mash. Not impressed at all. Woken at 7oclock in the morning with screaming children running up and down corridor. Understand that it is a family hotel and that was not the hotels fault but spoiled what was up to that a lovely relaxing short break.
Was asked to settle the bill before looking at the room.
I booked a non smoking room. My room was a smoking room, giving the room a terrible smell. I mentioned this to reception. I was told I was put in a smoking room because I booked late and I only had booked 1 night. No other rooms were available. I found this an invalid reason. Reception promissed to speak to the manager. No response so far.
Excellent Location. The Bridal Suite room was the very best, I have stayed in all the hotels I have visited this was value for money, big and plenty of space.
The breakfast was poor, the rotating toaster was not heating up the toast had to put it through twice and after all that just heated up the white bread one side a complete let down my tea and rest of breakfast had gone cold due to this, you would expect them to bring the toast ready with the tea like other Hotels!!! The hotel over charged for drinks, which I ordered and didn't arrive with my dinner in the Bar!!!
beautiful entrance, room was well laid out
attitude of the staff, a smile always helps!!!!!! the lady at the swimming area was most helpful though and could smile an be friendly.
The bar, atmosphere,comfort and staff Our room was clean and comfortable with a lovely view.Reception staff were also very friendly..
The food, the chicken was overdone and a bit tough, the pepper sauce was 'strange' , the chips and onions were good.
Staff and their friendliness
Decor a bit dated
Views from this hotel were excellent and this hotel has so much potential however it is not being utilized.
Meals were not fresh and they were frozen foods heated up. Plus the food had gone black whereby it had gone off. Complaints were made and nothing was done apart from a reduction in the overall bill, hence we remained hungry. Bedroom was dirty with remains of the last visitors left in the room, hair clips on the floor, dirty bin with rubbish from the last visitors, coffee/tea stains on the bench, bath dirty with hairs from last visitors in it. The electrical sockets for the TV were hanging off the wall. Staff were not attentive and appeared unhelpful whenever you complained
Location was good. Disabled room has a roll in/walk in shower
Restaurant has filthy windows. The curtains were hanging off the hooks. We sat down for an evening meal, the cutlery was dirty and so was the side plate. I had to send them back. Service was poor in the restaurant and the food at night was disgusting.
The views were spectacular,leisure facilities great,food lovely,rooms clean and comfortable and staff extremely helpful and friendly.
Wedding guests still drinking and making noise in the early hours .
their for wedding food was great service very good
Kettle in room didn't work , receptionist didn't seem bothered about it when I told him
Light intensity too low in bedroom - impossible to read at night.
Food only good. Staff while very friendly very disorganised.
View of the golf course, quiet room, comfortable and immaculate.
Extremely friendly and helpful staff in all areas of the hotel. Lovely swimming pool. Kids area was an excellent play centre and very well maintained.
Being woken by wedding guests wandering the corridors 2 nights in a row in the middle of the night.
Location,Staff,comfortable room,pool.We enjoyed everything except most of the food.
Food,dining room service was poor due to mismanagement as the staff seemed very willingly eg.tables were left with dirty dishes for too long,selection of food for breakfast was poor waited ages for tea and coffee.We wouldn't eat there again or recommend it to others, it would take very little to put it right.
Pool facilities are good.late bar was good.some staff where help full.
Receptionist was to busy on phone while we were waiting on our room keys.waiting till 5 to get keys.far to long.1 room was still not clean.
The deal including a room, and four course meal on one night was exceptional. Loved swimming in the pool each day, and the breakfast was fantastic. Upgraded to a sea-view room without asking, and thoroughly enjoyed our stay here again. Will definitely be back!
After being out all day, we came back to our room to find that the cleaner had left the windows wide open, with some expensive items lying around the room.
I enjoyed the stunning views when we were at breakfast and dinner.
Would have liked a sea view room.
