Beautifully decorated and incredibly friendly welcoming staff. Tim the proprietor is always never too far away to chat and mix pleasantries with guests which is a lovely touch. All guests are made to feel right at home. Fantastic late breakfast option until 12 and the best selection of breakfast made to order which hugely impressed us. I highly recommend the... More

My partner and I booked in for a full weekend stay here. I assumed I would be staying in a room similar to the one on their website but unfortunately we our room was exceptionally dismal and very hard to find. The room is bare and furnished with cheap mismatched chairs. The walls are adorned with creepy old paintings and... More

Used as base to tour West Cork.Nice room and fabulous breakfasts! Give the black pudding a go! All cooked to perfection. Staff really friendly. Give this place a go! You can visit Mizen Head (a must), Glandore, Baltimore and Union Hall! All close by.

I really can't recommend this hotel enough. The staff are extremely helpful and friendly. You really can see that they take great pride in the place. The food is delicious and all locally sourced. You have to try their seafood platter if you get the chance. Plus it was great to get the opportunity to sample a few local craft... More

I stayed here for one night for work. It was fantastic. It may have taken me a while to find it, but that was due to the weather and the one way system. The food was lovely, the staff were super friendly and my room was gorgeous. The bed was huge. Would love to have stayed a few nights!

Recently stayed here for one night - the staff were helpful and friendly, enjoyed a lovely dinner - well cooked, local produce & generous portions - breakfast equally as good. The rooms were clean and fresh with wifi thorughout the hotel. Not the Ritz but doesn't pretend to be - would definitely stay here again. Highly recommended

On arrival the Hotel reception was bright and fresh and very nicely presented. I checked in (single occupancy) at which point I was informed that I was being placed over... More
