I was totally thrilled to pay the postage, and so appreciate the service. My room was spacious, had a great view of the water,... More

I have an allergy to mushrooms and although I told the waiter this my steak arrived with mushrooms. It was quickly whisked away and within a very short time was replaced with a bigger mushroom free steak. It... More

My friends and I recently enjoyed a two night stay in the hotel. The rooms are spacious with plenty of storage, the bathroom had a great shower with lots of towels available. We enjoyed a lovely meal in Jack's Bar and it was fantastic value for money with two courses only €16, and the portions were big. The following day... More

Our friends were getting married on the Saturday so we were staying for a long weekend. All the staff were excellent, from the bar staff and wedding function staff on the Saturday to the staff on Sunday in the main bar. Emma was lovely to chat to and even though it was obviously busy as it was also Fathers Day,... More

Went for a Birthday meal with husband. On arrival, it was obvious that the hotel was extremely busy. Despite not having a reservation, Michaella found us a table. Service was fast and efficient as was evident throughout the entire restaurant. Friendliness and professionalism of staff has to be commended. Special mention has to go to Chef Yannis and his team...

When we arrived, we got to our room and it was excellent!! Cleanliness, space and extras were great, there were... More

Just spent a couple of nights at this hotel. The outstanding memory was the friendliness and professionalism of the staff. They clearly had a commitment to their role and worked as a team throughout all aspects of the hotel. The service offered by the dining staff deserves particular mention as they were on the ball in providing a first class... More
