There were complimentary bathrobes and water and even a couch. The only disappointment was on our first night when we were trying to run a bath and... More

Here for 2 nights. Very nice accommodations. Nice staff, beds are good by European standards. Waterville is small and this is the best place to stay. Breakfast is good with the typical fare. Had a hot water problem that was fixed immediately. Other than the street light shining in the room and a noisy radiator this is still the best... More

We all started with the Crab Bake which is so delicious - our friends talk about it from one year to the next. Main courses were all fish-... More

Arrived at the Butler Arms Hotel at lunch time on a lovely sunny day and was seated in the conservatory area over looking the sea. A lovely bright room with a very friendly waitress. We all ordered fish of the day which was hake, with chips and mushy peas. My mam asked for her fish to be grilled rather than... More

Positives: on arrival I thought it was quite dated but it's actually old but well maintained. It adds to the character. It's extremely clean with the most comfortable beds and stunning sea views from the room. Toiletries are provided. The staff are amazing, so friendly and no request is too much. The food is beautiful, every meal was faultless. The... More

We stayed at this hotel over August Bank Holiday Weekend & quite simply "we loved it". It's not pretentious or over the top but gracious & unique to itself with lots of space and beautiful residents lounge etc... A reminder of the past in the best possible way. I would definitely recommend this hotel & we plan to return again... More
