My wife booked this for a weekend break. It was the worst experience I have had in an Irish Hotel in 50 years. The receptionist needs a course in hospitality service. She couldn't care less that nothing in the room worked. The 3 stars must be for a dog home. It was so bad an experience we just left and... More

This hotel is perfectly adequate. Nice staff. Great breakfast. OK room. Tired décor including cracked basin in bathroom. Shower sometimes has a mind of its own in terms of pointing water in the right direction! Poor quality TV picture in room. No AC - if you lucky enough to have hot/humid weather. Location is great but does need a facelift... More

We attended a wedding in the hotel on 17 July 2014. Everything was so professional and the service was first class. The location is beautiful overlooking Pollan Bay/Ballyliffin beach and our room was just perfect. The wedding dinner was first class and breakfast the following day was excellent. We had our wedding here 28 years ago and experienced the same... More

We stayed at The Strand for 2 nights on the 13th and 14th July 2014. The first thing that struck us was how Beautiful this part of Ireland is. Booking into the hotel we found that the people we came in contact with were very pleasant and helpful everything was done with a smile-nothing was too much trouble. The room... More

Went on a 3 night break with Treat Ticket. For the money it was a very good deal B&B. The scenery in the area is beautiful and while the hotel itself is basic it is clean and comfortable. Breakfast was delicious, the room was spacious, the shower was fantastic and staff were pleasant and friendly. The bar area was also... More
