Lovely meal and great service in the Beach Hotel last night. Busy Easter Monday but they managed to accommodate us. Special thanks to Yvonne who looked after us and to all the staff. The children in our group got great attention too. We will be back!

We arrived early (2pm) reception confirmed check in was not until 4pm. Which I fully understand. I asked reception to check with housekeeping to see if our room was ready or perhaps to ask housekeeping to prioritize prepping the room… No joy. At 4pm reception advised our room would not be ready “for a while” but alternative room. ( no beach view) was ready. We took it… so first question. Does it take two hours to prep a room. We where the only guests waiting yo complete an early check in? Roll on, we came down for dinner. Into restaurant. “ sorry Sir, you will have to eat in the bar, the restaurant is just for the golfers” So we had our main meal in the bar which was more like a children’s playground.. So 185 euro for a room I didn’t want and a meal that was more like a canteen.. How NOT to run a hotel

The staff was welcoming and very helpful. Enjoyed every breakfast and dinner! It's conveniently located 2 minutes away from the Rosapenna Golf Club. I'd highly recommend the Sandy Hills Links course. Look forward to staying at the Beach Hotel on future visits.

We eat here pretty much every Thursday night for the Wine & Dine menu and always bring our guests here when they come to stay. I can honestly say we have never had a disappointing visit either for hospitality or food. My favourite is the chefs soups..made from scratch and full of flavour like the homemade soup you imagine ..the White Chocolate and Raspberry Roulade is to die fur and the Panacotta is heavenly ..I could praise the whole menu but you're only allowed a set amount of words ..5 star all the way ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Called in after a rather damp round of golf in Rosapenna. Friendly staff and also a few locals chatted away to us. The food and Guinness was pleasant and a decent range on the menu. Burger was good, warm Caesar salad tasty but the Chicken Melter was not great. Reasonably priced
