Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

I stayed in this place in June and have resisted writing about it since but it keeps coming back to mind. Certainly I was fleeced on the price but imagine arriving at a "hotel" locked up like fort Knox where I appeared to be the only guest. You get in through a series of locked doors, trudging up stairs and through corridors only to find yourself in the only unlocked room. Meanwhile the effluvia of cooking and voices coming from downstairs, clearly the owners, who could simply not be bothered to introduce themselves, In fairness the bed was comfy but only ONE spare powerpoint. Loads of filling had been done around the back and some of the cupboards were screwed tight. I am even shaking my head as I write this....simply awful. Oh and an impression is given there is food in this B&B as it is miles away from any pub...but no, not even breakfast in this B&B.

Although this hotel was clean I found it very uninviting.The gates had a big lock on them and u needed a code to get through 2 doors to the bedroom. Nobody welcomed us in and we had to find our own rooms. The price was open to discussion as we were charged a price on booking .com that was advised at a much lower rate on the hotel railings outside.

Response from David Tozer, Owner at The Pilgrims Rest Hotel (ADULTS ONLY)
Responded 3 weeks ago
Glad you were happy with yr clean and comfortable accommodation. As the rooms are numbered and you had the entry codes and room no we hope it wasn't too difficult to locate yr room. we noted you didnt request any extras therefore there would be no need to disturb you. Regarding Rates obviously they flatulate during the year and the board outside Clearly states "Rooms From €35 pp" this is based on 2 people sharing a double room in low season.

Sadly for their customers but not for them David and Mary have put the 'Rest' up for auction after many years of hard work and excellent service. They have earned a rest. Again a lovely stay in a unique and very comfortable hotel. Thank you.

Very good value hotel. Easy to see that it was once the Ladies Guest House from the Abbey. It still retains some of that history. The proprietor was very keen to accommodate everyone while remaining very conscious of Covid guidelines and restrictions. Food offering limited but fine.

Our visit coincided with the owners holidays, however we were very capably looked after by Bridget and Neil, who made us very welcome. Clean and comfortable and in a very rural peaceful location. Easy walk to the Abbey. Full food service was not offered as out of season {just}.
