My booking was cancelled by the hotel just 4 hours prior to check in. This is unacceptable. I received notice of the cancellation by telephone. If I had not been delayed unexpectedly at my prior location I would have driven significant mileage towards the hotels location. It should be noted that if I had initiated the cancellation at the same... More

The price was great, it was quiet, desk clerk helpful. The room was large enough, but dated. The bed was uncomfortable...hard and with a mattress cover that was like plastic...did not breath. It is aways from town centre, so driving is a must...a bit of a challenge given all the pubs. The value is there, just know what you're getting...enough... More

Just back from a 3 night stay here, didn't know what to expect but wasn't disappointed. Room is dated but yet decorated with modern paint, curtains and bed linen. Tea and coffee station along with flat screen TV and shower caps and soap. Room was very spacious and clean, you would be well advised to use the shower curtain when... More

After reading some of the reviews on trip advisor I was very aprehensive about staying in this accommodation. But i was actually very pleasently surprised. The rooms were very clean, fresh linen and looked like they'd recently been upgraded. The shower was very powerful and water lovely and hot. The free toiletries were very handy. Rooms also had tea and... More

The owner of the hotel is trying to upgrade it, but its not there yet. The building is half night-club (open weekends only) and half hotel rooms. Doors used skeleton keys with no inside latch; did not feel too secure (except that visiting police were also staying in the hotel).

I booked this hotel after leaving it late to book accommodation in Dingle. This was the only option within my price range. To be honest, with the reviews on here I had low expectations but didn't find it as bad as I thought it would be. Firstly, the good points. The room was clean and a good size, although not... More

My boyfriend and I booked the hill grove for Friday night. To be honest, I wouldn't have stayed any longer. On our arrival, we were told there was ongoing construction (there was some mess) and also the rooms were being cleaned as there was dirty towels thrown all over the hallway.
