Little to add from previous visits. An excellent clean spacious room with a large ensuite bath and shower. Breakfast all you wanted, full Irish or just cereal and toast depending on taste. They also provided an excellent evening meal all at a reasonable price. Plenty of on site parking and good Wifi in room. The owners do everything to make... More

We were made to feel very welcome after a long detour as the road was closed. We were impressed with the delicious roast dinners, and our hosts could not do enough for us. The breakfast was not as good as we had been enjoying of late. But the hospitality Made up for it.

Peace and quiet in this peaceful place. No children allowed, no night club next door, no traffic, aircraft or renovation work. Just fab food, on proper plates (no lettuce leaf drizzled with balsamic on a square plate here) wooden floors, comfy settees in the lounge, proper fire on cooler days, tea and coffee available 24/7 in the lounge, with proper...

Thanks so much for hosting us the way you did. We 3 arrived dishevelled after a long and were looked after so well. The fabulous home cooked meal left us glowing with that contented home away from home feeling.

This is a real gem in the heart of the country side. Super staff, fabulous food, real comfy rooms. The hosts were so welcoming and friendly. Took a walk to the nearby Abbey (which is huge and imposing) in the beautiful countryside. Warmed up by the hotel fireside afterwards. Highly recommended.

Unbelievable value at this lovely spot, food was excellent - dinner and breakfast - and a nice comfortable room. Very peaceful place but not too far away from towns of interest. Dave and Mary are great hosts, will definitely be back. Highly recommended.

Having moved from a B&B that wasnt up to scratch we rang this one at very short notice. There were 4 of us and we needed 2 rooms, lucky for us we got the last 2 remaining. We booked for 2 nights. The Hotel is very clean and the rooms were very light and airy but very warm and cosy,... More

Used this hotel for one night in avsingle room. I was pleasantly surprised by the overall feel of it. Nothing in the hotel was made "cheaply" . Real wood furniture in the room, decent bathroom, good breakfast, free tea and coffee. Location is harder to find as there are no signs along the major roads to navigate us. The owners... More

The hotel is located in a peaceful location in beautiful West Waterford. The on-site bar and restaurant are both quaint and cosy. The only negatives (minor faults) to our stay were that our room/en suite had no shampoo and no hairdryer. However, I now know to bring these the next time as I will definitely be staying again... and again!
