Different size pools for children. Kiddies club on campus. Young girls running this were very nice and plesant. Great idea and children can mix with other children. Breakfast buffet style. But only supplying cold plates for breakfast, food goes cold very quick. Nice choice on dinner menu in restaurant. Food in bar only average. Near Fota which we visited. Rooms... More

On arrival we were greeted by a lovely young lady at reception. She was so friendly and helpful. We were upgraded to the bridal suite which was a wonderful surprise. The suite was huge! The jacuzzi bath was such a nice way to relax at the end of the day. You could sleep 5 in the bed, it was huge... More

Nice Hotel, very clean rooms,good food and friendly helpful staff. When I contacted hotel they were very helpful and reserved parking as I wasn't arriving until later in evening.Although there was a function there that night it was very well controlled and no noise or disturbance. Good selection for breakfast. had a meal in the bar and it was excellent.

Had to stay at this hotel due to business commitments. This certainly would not have been my choice to return again based on previous experience. Service at this property is appauling to say the least. Receptionists are as pleasant as your average toilet attendants. Service staff require training from the turks. Turkish service staff are very quick and very efficient... More

Myself and Husband went on a last minute break to the Oriel House Hotel. It was excellent, we really enjoyed every minute. We went on the 2 night BBD & Spa package which was excellent value. The girls in the Spa were wonderful, best massage we had in a long time. Food & service were fantastic. We would highly recommend... More
