I arrived at the hotel 15 minutes before their check-in time of 14:00 ( web said from 14:00 ) and acknowledged that I was a little early. Very quickly I was informed that check-in STARTED at 15:00 and I would have to wait as my room wasn't ready. Fair enough! I waited half an hour before asking again ( in... More

A great hotel located outside Kenamre town, extremely friendly staff who make you feel welcome as soon as you arrive, stayed 1 night with my wife and the rooms were spacious and clean. The hotel is quiet and child friendly. The breakfast is nice with a good choice of dishes to suit all tastes.

Stayed there with my five year old son. Great value, good swimming pool and pleasant staff. Room was ok, what you would expect of a 3 star rating. Parking was at a premium due to an event being hosted on Sunday afternoon. This hotel does not accept American Express credit cards, highly unusual considering the amount of American tourists attracted... More
