Nothing extraordinary about it thought it's beautifully set next to river Ilen. The food was average and average setup. Enough space and availability of a conference room and wedding receptions especially on the bridge right outside the hotel.

A very special place for Sunday roast - especially at Christmas with mulled wine! Could not speak highly enough of this hotel. In the town centre and a good location on the way to Baltimore and Schull.

Our stay in this hotel was very comfortable. A beautiful room with a very comfortable large bed. The bar and restaurant areas are serviced by friendly staff. Highly recommend a stay in this old style hotel. A great stop along the Wild Atlantic Way.
