Attended a wedding at this venue. Upon first impressions I was really impressed. The driveway up to the hotel and surrounding grounds are nice. The hotel interior is also quite nice, with a great view of the water and coastline from the bar window. The meal was good, with a small dessert trio. The layout of the venue was also... More

A few of us went for tea during the week and it was just ok, the portions very small for the price, the fish was small and the batter quite hard so very disappointing. The staff are lovely and friendly and seem to be overworked but it does not stop them doing their job. Nice hotel pity about the cooking.

A great place and great hotel. Staff were extremely helpful and efficient. Lots of nearby places to visit and the Atlantic waves rolling in at Pollan Bay are a must see. We had a front facing room overlooking the bay and golf course. The view was spectacular. My partner had a spa treatment which she claimed was excellent. A must... More

We did NOT stay here but came in one lunch time for a quick meal. The food was good, well prepared and the portion sizes were quite large. The food was tasy and represented good value for money. There is a childrens menu with a good range of choices and the full menu is varied.

We had the honour of attending a family wedding here 25/8/16. The day was fantastic from start to finish. Rooms are beautiful, meal was outstanding and your front of house during the wedding meal were impeccable. We'll definitely be back for a meal and overnight stay as we couldn't rate you high enough
