Stayed at hotel for 2 nights top floor with ocean view. Very comfortable, excellent view, good food and service. Only fly in the ointment was bird droppings on veranda floor, hand rail and wooden board holding the railing. It was there when we arrived as I walked out on it and was not cleaned when the room was cleaned. Good... More

I'm just back from a 3 night stay with my husband and two small kids. I get to stay in a lot of hotels so I've a good sense of what makes a great hotel. The location is stunning, right on the coast and feels removed and unspoilt, yet its only 5mins from castlematyr and about 20mins from middleton. On... More

Stayed here recently for one night. Staff were very welcoming, rooms were clean and surprisingly large, a little attention to things like tile grouting and a couple of paintings in the bedroom would make a huge difference ! Overall though this is a great hotel, older gentleman in the bar was very friendly and efficient. Breakfast was also very good.

We stayed here for three nights and had a lovely time. It's a good basic four star hotel. Our room was clean and comfortable, breakfast is good. We had one or two little niggles regarding plumbing which were mentioned but not fixed but it wouldn't put me off coming back here again.

I was there for a specific occasion: a proposal to my girlfriend. We booked a dinner +B&B option with a seaview room. The room was nice and the view wonderful (ask for 401 to 406 they are the best). The dinner was nice also. Specific point there is an outdoor hot tub, so nice.

We attended a family wedding. The room was beautiful with a view looking out to the sea. Bed was so comfortable my hubbie wants to know where he can buy the same mattress. Room temperature was perfect. I cannot fault this beautiful hotel and I will definitely stay here again. Highly recommend for couples and families.
