Hotel staff need to be trained before serving food, needs to be brought up to date in the 21st century. Basic 3 star at best, better hotels and bed and breakfast available in area, I would not stay again. I was lucky no midges in room and front facing.

I visited this hotel on a Newmarket Holiday. This well-known, old hotel is past its glory days and now feels in need of some updating. The staff are friendly and the food is OK but the people serving at table need training in how to serve food without throwing the plates at the guests. The alternative to a cooked breakfast... More

Cannot beat the location opposite the bay and just a ten minute walk into Glengarriff. All staff was generally really friendly and helpful. The breakfast was fine - cooked was especially generous and the black pudding was delicious! Rooms were clean and spacious although the bathrooms were a little tired looking in our rooms. We did have a deal though,... More

Big thank you to all the staff at the Eccles Hotel for a wonderful weekend in Glengarriff. 12 of us stayed recently for a Hen Party, afternoon tea on the veranda was delicious and the accommodation was perfect, clean and reasonably priced. The staff were extremely helpful especially Tricia who helped me coordinate the whole weekend. Looking forward to a... More

We thoroughly enjoyed five nights at this hotel in the south west of Ireland. The weather was warm and dry - a most unexpected bonus. The staff all deserved praise for their helpful attitudes. The service was always over and above the standard expected. I recommend the location and hotel for anyone visitng this part of Ireland.

I can't add much to what has already been written. I brought a student fiddle group to perform here June 2014. The owner set up a concert in the hotel's entertainment area, advertised, brought other tour groups to listen, and invited locals to come. Very accommodating and friendly. Again, one can't beat the view over Bantry Bay, the scenic town... More

Have just returned to England after 3 wonderful nights at this hotel. Weather was very good for us so it may have made the views all that more special. The staff could not have been more helpful, my niece had a phone interview for a job while we were there and the receptionist ensured that all phone calls were received... More

Coming to this hotel off-season clearly has its benefits. Not only is it beautifully situated in the scenic town of Glengarriff, it has history. The chandeliers and columns still stand and one can imagine W.B. Yeats arriving for a stay. His picture hangs over the lobby fireplace and the staff tells us that he stayed there.
