We spent 2 nights in the cliff house hotel recently as part of a christmas present we received, the room were fabulous and the leisure center was very good but could do with a few more seats. The downfall we found was the price of the food & drink. We spent €83 each night on two course bar food &... More

Dear Mary C Thank you for your review. I am glad that you enjoyed your visit for the most part. There is a lovely local restaurant within walking distance in the village called The Whitehorses which you might like to try on your next visit, but their prices are the same as ours. Yours sincerely Kindest regards Adriaan Bartels General... More

As I decided to head away to Australia for a few months last year as my family are living there, my boyfriend and I wanted to spend some quality time together before I departed!

This is a modern hotel with great facilities and all the comforts. Excellent, friendly service and a pleasure to experience. Spacious room, very comfortable and inviting lounge areas, and of course superb coastal views. Wifi free and easy to access. A little slow (around 2 MB) but does the basic jobs. Make sure you do the cliff walk - superb... More

Stayed only for a few days but what a place, from sipping a few Guinness whilst reading a book in the bar, enjoying the views, sampling the taster menu in the restaurant or simply relaxing in quite a quirky room, it was all fantastic. Ardmore itself is a nice town, and in each direction there are other places to explore,... More
