We have just returned after spending 5 nights at the Eccles hotel. The views across Bantry Bay were amazing. Hotel was a bit tired and the menu was limited but the waitresses could not do enough for you. I would like to have had a bit more Irish food on the menu and a bit less chicken and salmon. Would...

The best thing about this place is the staff. They were very friendly. My sister, when I asked about a hotel in Glengarrif, told me about this place, advising it was a little bit faulty towers. She wasn't wrong. It badly needs a renovation (all of it - front of the building, reception and in particular, the room) Dark furniture... More

Stayed 2 nights here on a coach holiday and this was far from the best of the others. We were put in a room on the fourth floor with camosiled ceiling and very basic. Diners had little choice but food was good and breakfasts just ok. The saving grace was the great view over Bantry Bay. This was our hotel... More

Beautiful location looking out on Bantry Bay. While the menu is not something that one would write home about , the ingredients were of the highest class. Not exactly cheap and a big hit with the Tour Bus Brigade ... but well worth a visit.

This is my second stay at the lovely Eccles Hotel in Glengarriff. I was lucky to be staying in the Yeats Suite which is just beautiful. A very large room at the front of the hotel with a great balcony and spacious bathroom. Very comfortable bed. Magnificent view. Breakfast very good - full Irish. Staff very welcoming and friendly.

The hotel is situated in Bantry Bay with beautiful views over the sea. The room we had was clean and the beds were very good quality and very comfortable. The stay included dinner and breakfast, we found the standard of the food quite poor, with lots of room for improvement in terms of choice of food and quality.

A couple of great nights at the Eccles Hotel this last week. Open fires, music and Irish coffee. Can't beat it! The staff, all familiar faces, are welcoming and friendly and the service is great. Cannot wait to come back.

great place to eat! was there for the An Post Rebel tour after being out on the course all day and the food was brilliant after! The staff were very friendly and cleared up the tables very quickly to make sure that other people could sit and enjoy their meal! Well done all!!
