I took my partner here for Valentine's weekend as a surprise. Turned out to be a brilliant choice. We had a superior sea view room, and the view was certainly terrific. Could not fault the room at all, it had everything we wanted. The staff were excellent, from the moment we arrived to the moment we left. The big bonus... More

I recently ventured over to the Sandy Cove for the second time, for dinner with my fiancé. We live locally but had heard there's a new Head Chef and how fabulous the new menu was – we were certainly not disappointed! We both had 3 courses from a comprehensive a la carte menu and couldn’t fault any of them –... More

This is a surprisingly enjoyable place to stay, with fabulous views and set in a lovely area. We've stayed (for business purposes) in many very smart hotels around the world. This trip was on a whim with our own money, so we went cheap on an off season deal. It was an absolute bargain. The hotel is outside Berrynarbor, in... More

I have stayed at this hotel fairly regularly over past 24 years. For the first 18 of those years I would have given this hotel 5 stars without a thought, the food, staff and general service were excellent the rooms could be noisy but then for the price I wouldn't have complained. Since the menue changed, and I can only... More

Thank you for taking the time to write a review and we do really appreciate your custom. We are however rather dismayed that you have never written a review in the past, particularly as you say you would have given 5 stars. We have looked at the history of your stays in the past, you stayed at Christmas in 2006... More

We booked exclusive use for our wedding. We stayed from Saturday 4th January-5th. Food was amazing, staff were fantastic and eager to help. They even brought breakfast up to the room despite having everyone else to serve and set up for the wedding. It was the most amazing day. If you wish to get married here, don't hesitate. Everyone goes... More

We stayed in a lovely room with large covered balcony. The food was amazing. However the lounge wasn't very clean, there were lots if cobwebs. We arrived at 3:30, there was no snacks/nibbles available. The receptionist wasn't able to make cocktails or open champagne! There were no other staff around. We were rushed through our meal even though we requested... More
