My family and I stayed in this hotel as we were attending a family function downstairs. Excellent location for a family occasion. Both the function room, food & service provided were excellent. Has a great bar area also for a hotel. Found the family room to be a bit on the small side. Had a double & a single which... More

Excellent four star hotel hotel in town of Macroom, Co.Cork. I have stayed there on a number of occasions and have always found it to be one of the best value hotels around. Staff including management are extremely friendly and helpful. Rooms are good and food is top class. Breakfast with lots of fresh fruit is especially good.

Tired and weary on the way back from Killarney we dropped into the bar restaurant for an evening meal. We were served with a delicious crispy calamari and roast Macroom pork with apple sauce. Both were imaginatively presented and were just what we were looking for. The Pavlova and sticky toffee pudding were 'out of this world'. The menu had... More

Nice Hotel.Clean, tidy,spacious room.Very good and friendly staff.However, the full breakfast was a big disappointment.Had to wait an eternity for it and when it arrived the bacon was like cardboard and tasted soapy, the sausage tasteless, the coffee bland. Only the egg, toast and black pudding were just about edible.Only the fact I had a sore head from the night... More

This hotel has some of the best food in the area. It is Irish Food properly cooked and none of your fancy foreign stuff. I highly recommend it. I particular recommend the salmon which was delicious. As for the hotel itself good clean comfortable accommodation at a reasonable price.
