Check in was stated as 4pm, we arrived at around 1pm and went to reception, we were greeted by one of the three staff on duty with... More

If you want a secret getaway hotel, this may just be it! We have stayed here on & off for over seven years and it has never failed to deliver. The hotel is an older style, classic looking hotel. It caters for young, older, in-betweeners, family reunions, romantics and weddings. Food is excellent in all of the restaurants and the... More

Just returned from a 2 night stay with my family who were attending a wedding. We cannot fault our stay there. From start to finish we enjoyed every single minute. The hotel is absolutely stunning! Our rooms were overlooking the golf course, and the views were fantastic, spotlessly clean and very spacious! We had dinner the first night in the... More

We have stayed in this hotel numerous times. They are undergoing a gentle renovation program at the moment and the place looks great, it always looked good. The hotel is in lovely grounda and not far from Ballyconnell which we often walk into. The rooms are lovely, staff lovely, food lovely, reception area lovely except the bar nearly always has...

Second trip to this hotel staying in one of the smaller suites overlooking the golf course. Have to say enjoyed the suite again although this hotel is seriously in need of an all round refurb. Whilst the suite was spacious and the bed and linen lovely, the room had a badly stained light coloured carpet(not a great first impression to... More

Stayed here over mid term. Check in was very busy but fast. We paid a bit extra for a suite with a floor to roof large window overlooking the golf course, the view was beautiful. The bed is massive and very cosy. Massive en suite with a very powerful shower. Kell's bar is a lively and comfortable place to eat... More
