We stayed in a room with 3 comfortable single beds. It is not every place who cater for 3 people in a room. This was ideal. Lovely big room with plenty of space to move around. Staff were lovely throughout the hotel. We ate in the restaurant on one of the nights and it was superb. I would highly recommend this hotel for a weekend away.

We stayed in one of the apartments that had a fantastic view of the beach and ocean. Located in the middle of the town so everything is only a short walk away. Car-parking available on site. Hotel staff were friendly and approachable. Spacious living area and nice outside balcony to relax on and enjoy the scenery. A couple of minutes walk and you are on the beautiful sandy beach. Definitely one we would come back to stay at again.

Stayed here as part of a group tour. The only thing that spoiled the experience was 3 staff members who did not appear to want to work. Dinner choices were gathered before serving but not adhered to. Not organised. Asked girl in Coffee Dock on the Sunday morning for alternative milk coffee to which she replied that she did not have any. I told her that I just came from breakfast room and there was a supply there to which she replied that as far as she knew it was all finished. Thankfully there is a lovely cafe down the street with a good choice of eats and drinks with very pleasant and helpful staff.

We stayed for 3 nights, and from the moment we entered until we left, we could not fault one thing. Parking is free in the underground car park entry to it is at the rear of the hotel. Check-in was quick. the lobby area was lively and very clean. There is a lovely Barrista in the front lobby serving teas, coffee cakes, etc. We had a room with a balcony on garden level. It was clean and tidy and everything we needed gor the 3 days Bar staff and restaurant staff are all very friendly and are all top class at their job with a brilliant moral among all the staff and they have a great way of dealing with the customers. Special mention to young Bobby and Mimi, whom we had the pleasure of dealing with. Head bar man and restaurant manager were on top of their game. All the food we had over the 3 days was excellent and very reasonably priced, and they definitely do not rip off their customers for food or drink, and that is something you don't see to often. Managent has this place running superbly and fair play to all involved. I highly recommend it and definitely will be going back. It's a great base for exploring Enniscrone, Easkey, Aughris Head, Bellek Woods, Ross Beach, Lacken Strand, and Downpatrick Head.

The hotel is on tge Beach,it a perfect location for families. So much to do. The hotel is dog friendly which is a bonus well laid so other guests will not be distributed. Every staff we met are friendly and professional. The food is high quality and worth every penny thanks to the chef.. the fish and tiramusu was a hit. Location of restaurant is very romantic. Definitely recommend for a get away.. Thanks for the hospitality see you again

Myself and my children went for a Sunday meal on 24th of March . The experience in the bar was really good , waitress was very nice and polite ,meal was lovely as well,nothing to complain, was very pleased . It went downhill once we went to pebbles. The minute we came in, the lady said & take of your shoes in a loud( not polite voice ) no please or thank you, just a demand. I do understand we have to take off our shoes while in the soft play area,I don't think it should be allowed demanding taking of shoes while being in the little football pitch , health and safety- kicking the ball bare foot ? I don't agree with that , or just standing on the carpet, my son had to go toilet and once he was back , that lady ( black long hair) basically chased him shouting again - take of your shoes ! My son left that place crying and the rest of his day was ruined ( that's what he was saying all evening after we came back home. Not to mention that same lady was on the phone nearly the whole time which doesn't look professional especially while working in a childcare setting.The pebbles area is beautiful and kids loved it, pity we have got such am awful experience, no-one wants their children leaving upset and crying.

Had the pleasure of staying in this hotel for 2 nights over the weekend. It is in a stunning location and overall it was an excellent experience. The only reason i knocked 1 star off is the towels in the bathroom needed to be upgraded urgently. The bath towel/sheet is not fit for purpose. It is far too small. I really hope management will take this on board and put in decent towels. The only other minor issue was the window in my room was faulty which meant same could not be opened which was a tad disappointing. I attended for 2 nights with a group of friends. Check-in very positiive, room lovely and spacious and clean with a sea-view. Hotel had a great buzz about it. We had some drinks in the bar both nights, girls that was playing Friday night was exceptional and Stephen the barman was very attentive. Again we had drinks in the lobby Saturday night - lovely relaxed atmosphere. Breakfast each morning - 5 stars - the quality of the produce was excellent. Overall a very enjoyable stay will definetely reutrn but please management changed the towels.

Lovely hotel in a great location, but a little dated in some ways. Room was warm and clean. Shower was one of those ones in the bath with a shower curtain, which I don't like! Stairwell was freezing as there seemed to be a faulty window. But the staff were lovely and the food in the restaurant was fab!

:We stayed for one night with our pet Bernese dog. From the moment we arrived we were greeted so warmly and all of the staff were so friendly. The hotel is very pet friendly and the bedroom was cosy and the extra added bonus is the fabulous location right on the beach front. We would highly recommend
