“Not too shabby”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 30, 2012 via mobile

Stayed in this hotel twice. Both times the staff were excellent , very helpful. I have eaten in the restaurant there many times and I think they have a very nice menu - well worth a look. However I will say that I think it's a small bit pricey... The rooms certainly aren't particularly good value and it's not like the place is done up to the 9's. As I said though, very good for food and service so that's a plus !

5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 14, 2012

We have stayed here a lot, while visiting family nearby. Never had any issues with rooms, always spacious and clean. Some fixtures are a little dated but this is not a source of issue.

Our stays culminated with a stay in the suite for the night of our Civil marriage. The suite is enormous, plenty furniture, old style tv (a flat screen would be nice here), and the winner was the jacuzzi bath.

Breakfast is always a great meal, a full old fashioned Irish, not much on offer for a European continental breakfast but this does not affect me. Piub lunch is also a good hearty affair.

Staff have always been friendly curteous and chatty, and went above and beyond on occasion. (Night porter is a hero)

I do think the price could be reduced somewhat, averaging at 150euro for 2 nights can sting the wallet especially when they have a monopoly. Nevertheless I have no hesitation giving it a thumbs up.

It is the only hotel in NCW. Very good basic motel. Clean and a good value. Nice pub and restaurant attached. Family rooms are quite large.

Room Tip: Ask for a family bedroom

I stay in the Courtenay with my family when visiting my folks and the Courtenay always delivers to our requirements. I have stayed in the Courtenay about 7/8 times and have never had any issues. The staff are always very accomadating and friendly.

Booked this hotel for family funeral in the area. Found staff to be more than helpful. Room perfect, roomy, ample clothes space, dressing table, lovely bathroom with toiletries which was generous as have stayed in some 4* hotels recently where NO toiletries were supplied!!

The breakfast was very tasteful, fresh fruit salad, grapefruit, yogurts, cereals, the usual. The only little niggle was that that there was only one chair in the room but I'm sure if I had asked they would have provided a second chair. Would recommend this hotel to anybody particularly for the friendly staff at reception.

Staff were very kind and welcoming, especially Marie who was very helpful. It is not the fanciest hotel in the world but the staff and good food make up for it.

Great location but hotel room was filthy. Carpet was covered in dried in yoghurt, bathroom was covered in black mould and coffee cups were filthy. I was down for family funeral and was not in form to kick up a rompas but I will definitely not be back.
