From start to finish we were absolutely thrilled with everything. From the ease of booking and the superb room we had to the delish breakfast and of course our hostesses were absolutely lovely. Looking forward to comming back .
Stayed recently in this B&B with my wife. The house is some distance from the town with taxi journeys ( if required) costing in the region of €10 per trip. The room was spacious, clean and very comfortable, with tea & coffee making facilities provided. The bathroom was state of the art.The landlady Dolores and her husband Mark could not have been more welcoming and friendly which greatly enhanced the overall experience. Breakfasts were excellent! I have no hesitation in recommending this B&B. Keep up the good work Dolores!
Anyone travelling on their way to Cork and who is looking to stop overnight on the way, I would highly recommend stopping off at Laurel House B&B where you will experience the famous and wonderful Irish hospitality from your hosts Mark and Delores. A truly lovely couple with a beautiful home, which was spotless and very comfortable. The breakfast was so so good. The only disappointment for us was that our stay was too short. PS Thank you Mark for taking your car and showing us the way to Poachers Restaurant in Bandon.
My wife and I stayed here for a christening in the area - really couldn't recommend it more, Mark and his wife took great care of us. Super clean and terrific breakfast - only B&B we would use in the area, see you next time. Thanks, Karl & Isobel
We stayed overnight last weekend on a very cold night. We were welcomed to a beautiful warm house with a Hugh bedroom The house is spotless. The couple are lovely and offered tea or coffee on arrival which I chose not to avail of. We explained that we were attending a function in Bandon, immediately the lady said she would drop us in when it suited us. While the house is a few miles out of the town the lift was very much appreciated & the return taxi was only €10. The bed was very comfortable with tea & coffee making facilities and a bottle of water left on the bedside locker. The breakfast was excellent with a lovely selection of cereals fresh fruit yogurt & the lovely cooked breakfast. Good value, lovely couple. Beats a lot of hotels that are on offer.
On arrival at this lovely looking house, we were warmly greeted by the hosts and offered tea and warm pudding - which we would normally accept with glee but we were going to a local chinese restaurant, so thought we'd better leave room! The room was lovely, really homely and cosy with a modern, clean bathroom. A really good night's sleep on a comfy bed then tasty breakfast of home made pancakes, rashers and maple syrup, delicious! Will always go here now, when in Bandon!
Beautiful house and a lovely welcome with tea and apple pie! We had a large room with a super view over fields. Comfy bed and great en suite. Super hosts. We were overawed by kindness when Dolores drove ahead of us to show the way to a local restaurant. Dolores also drew us a map to get to the P + R in Cork City. Mark and Dolores were great hosts. We had great breakfasts in a lovely setting . Hope to return.
We had a great one night stay in Laurel House last month . My daughter and I had two very comfortable and spacious rooms with really comfy beds. The breakfast was really nice with great homemade bread and a freshly cooked fry.
Had a lovely 1 night stay recently with Dolores & Mark in their lovely home and B+B Laurel House.. Such a comfortable bed - 1 of the most comfortable ever, great night's sleep. Laurel House is located on the Dunmanway Road couple of miles outside Bandon Town. Mark provided great directions by email, which were spot on even on a rainy night in unfamiliar area! Nice big room too, with great shower & cable TV. The fresh milk & ground coffee with plunger pot was a really nice touch on the tea tray (especially for a coffee addict like myself!). The breakfast next morning was outstanding in a beautifully appointed dining room, another big pot of strong coffee with freshly cooked breakfast, using several local ingredients! Namely, the bacon, sausages & yogurts were really good. Nice selection of fresh fruit, cereals, yogurts & homemade brown bread.. Only negative was I could only stay the 1 night, but I will definitely return... Very charming and welcoming hosts - could not have been more helpful with information and sorting out TV at 11pm (due to my lack of technical ability - I should add!)... Great priced - fantastic value for a 5***** experience... (-: (-:…
Mark and Delores are terrific hosts. They have a beautiful home with extremely comfortable rooms. Lots of fun to visit with. Full Irish breakfast was one of the best we had on our trip. Mark is quite the musician (guitar) and he has a rich and melodious voice. Would highly recommend this impeccable location.
