We so looked forward to staying in Kinsale. It is a magnificent town. Loved everything about it but most of all the car was parked for the three days. We stayed in an executive harbour view room. Beautiful. The hotel lacks something but cannot put my finger on it. Is it that the Reception area is down the back hidden???... More

Food is ok, the service is terrible. The waiters just don't listen to the customers, are under pressure and don't smile at all. Terrible atmosphere. One of my friends asked if he could have a particular dish with rice instead of noodles, the waitress said yes but when the dish came to the table it was with noodles so that... More

As many reviewers have pointed out, the location is great, right at the edge of the harbor. While not optimal overlooking the parking lot, it was fine and nice to look over the boats and water. Our room however was a disappointment. The walls were so thin you could hear people in the next room having a normal conversation. The... More

Stayed here for two nights in an executive room, spacious with large comfy bed, overlooking car park/harbour and spotlessly clean. The food served in the bar and in the restaurant was first rate and at a fair price, but the stand out attribute for me at this hotel were ALL the staff who were warm, friendly and helpful, a pleasure...

You will not find a better location in Kinsale for a hotel - definitely get a water view room. I had a huge suite that had a large balcony overlooking the harbor and marina. It was quiet at night -- do remember to pull the drapes if you don't want to be part of the scene, although I left the... More

Sometimes you check into a hotel, get to your room and your heart sinks. Today seems my day, with my “luxury” suite with an inspiring view of the car park (room 311) which is the kind of room you give to late arrivals rather than to someone who arrives early while rooms are being prepped. My call to reception when... More

Our room overlooked the harbour and it was lovely watching the sunset. However, the beds were small, the bathroom tired and the room was also dated. The hotel is walking distance from the centre of Kinsale, so the location is quite good.

We ended up getting the last parking spot in the place, they are hard to come by. Check in was at 4, but our room wasn't ready until 4:45. This is on the pier, not in the center of town so it was a bit more quiet, and it's an easy walk in. The bed was one of the most... More
