Rooms were clean and bed comfortable. A little bit noisy at the back overlooking the car park which meant keeping the window closed so got very warm in the room. The breakfasts were excellent, great choice of cereals, fruit, full Irish, yogurt, the white pudding is delicious! The woman serving at breakfast was lovely, so friendly and helpful. We ate...

I wanted the day to be very special for my son who had just made his communion. All our close relatives were invited for a meal with us to celebrate. I had previously been in touch with the hotel to discuss menus and prices and suchlike. Even with careful planning you can be disappointed, but actually I was really happily...

good value for money , nice clean hotel with good breakfast choice each morning, Kinvara is very picturesque with lots of nice little bars and a small harbour.Probably would have been a four star review but the evening meal wasn't great and whilst having a drink the bar witnessed an unsavoury incident between the man who seemed to be the...

Hello, Thank you for your recent review of our hotel. I am glad that you were happy with our hotel. However, I was dismayed to read your comments regarding our treatment of guests.

Stayed at the hotel for two nights. The place was clean and comfortable, the full Irish breakfast was huge. Only a small thing, the batter on the hake at our evening meal was a bit burnt but the rest of the food was fine and portions generous.

I have stayed here a number of times, its by no means luxury but its clean and functional. Once I had booked a wheelchair accessible room but to be told when we arrived the lift was broken on that occasion we had to make alternative arrangements. The food is tasty
