“Only ok.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2013

Recently stayed in the Celtic Ross for a family occasion. The good points are a beautiful location and friendly reception staff and a very adequate breakfast except for the awful coffee! The negatives I'm afraid were a rather long list. While the bed linen etc was spotless, the rooms were quite outdated with an old style TV up on the dressing table and no faceclothes in the bathroom. On the way to my room at approximately 3:30pm there was a room service tray with dirty dishes on the corridor, it was still there 12 hours later....no excuses for that! The following morning and I understand that this was outside the hotel's control, there was no hot water available, therefore no showers. I would have expected some reduction in the bill or some gesture but nothing! The food was only ok.

good value here, nice hotel, good food, rooms are fine, nice breakfast, leisure facilities and a good bar with outdoor area on the coast. Staff (when the turn up) are very friendly. Only thing is you could be waiting a long time to be served. It's sometimes like they are not interested in you. Hello?

Stayed here for 2 nights, 2 adults and 2 children. Staff really welcoming. Really friendly with my children and even one lovely lady (member of staff) giving them a treat of chocolate bars. Rooms were basic but clean. Also where our room was located it was very quiet, a great plus not to be woken up by noise outside the bedroom! Children loved the pool. A lovely size. Breakfast was lovely.
We ate in the bar on first night but found portions for the adult not large enough. I wasn't that hungry when I ordered a chicken wrap that came with chips, but it didn't fill me. Chip portions very small.
Also I had a treatment in the Holisitc Suite. It is small and I felt a bit rushed but i was cross afterwards as I read description of my treatment and it said it included a relaxing foot massage which I did not get. I paid €35.00 for Callus Peel and a Toe nail paint (no shape). I was disappointed when i did not get the foot massage (I got cream rubbed in after peel, but no massage, it took seconds rubbing in cream). Maybe if I hadn't looked for my nails to be painted they might have had the time. Therapist was friendly. Great stay though and definitely will be back.

Just back from a 4 night stay in The Celtic Ross Hotel with my husband and our 11 month old baby girl. We had a wonderful stay there. We were lucky enough to have fantastic weather for the time we were staying there. The hotel is located in a beautiful setting, perfect base for touring around West Cork. We found that the staff were just excellent - they got to know us & could not do enough for us. I would highly recommend this hotel for a break in West Cork. Food, staff & service just excellent. A special mention for Kathy on reception, Una in the restaurant and the blond girl who sterilised our baby's bottles for us each morning, they were just lovely! I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone planning a visit to West Cork.

Superb value for money. This hotel completely surpassed all of our expectations and we're kind of fussy when it comes to room and food standards. We booked it on a whim and did nt really have great expectations.As it turns out we had a ball and would definitely recommend this place to anyone who enjoys greal food, good clean
rooms with a pool in a quiet coastal village. We will definitely be back!
