Spent two nights here in June. It's conveniently situated & only a short walk from the city centre. Easily accessible car park. The hotel is clean and the decor quite tasteful if a little soulless - as an earlier reviewer said, more like a motel than a hotel. Staff were generally friendly and helpful. Room was a decent size and... More

I stayed for four nights during the June heatwave and was initially worried about the lack of air conditioning. However the window opened very wide and I looked out over the river and had good breezes. The bed and pillows were comfortable and there were excellent restaurants, bars, and shops nearby. The breakfast was also good. I would definitely stay... More

Very pleasant stay. Room was first class and location gives good access to the City. I drive a coach and thought parking would be a problem but this turned out to as easy as anywhere I've stayed in a long time. Staff very helpful. Would stay again.

When I booked this hotel online I thought it was too good to be true. It really was excellent value for the price we were paying for bed and breakfast.

After trekking round the Dingle, staying in B&B's, it was a pleasure to check in here - spacious room, nice bathroom with rain shower, canal view, easy walking to restaurants and shops, quiet at night. The staff were helpful and professional and the included breakfast excellent. We'd definitely stay here again.
