The hotel itself was lovely and was in a really good location. Rooms were basic but nice. Very clean and the shower was a decent size. The hotel is located in the center of Baltimore looking over the marina. It was so lovely to sit outside and have a beer in the sun overlooking the water. Views were stunning, especially... More

Rather than having a bell on reception to notify the receptionist of your arrival, one of the two ladies smoking in the reception doorway will very kindly go into the bar and let the barman know you are there. The barman will then very kindly go and inform the receptionist of your arrvial. And therein lies the problem. All the... More

Thank you for a wonderful stay. Great food, we enjoyed a delicious evening meal and the best full Irish breakfast. Very comfortable room with a spectacular view and armchairs to sit and enjoy the sunset.

As its name suggests, this hotel is situated on the waterfront, right in the centre of Baltimore in an excellent location. The rooms were small but very clean and comfortable. Staff were helpful and friendly (although you might have to look for the receptionist in the bar next door: all adds to the charm!). We did not eat there but... More

We used it as a base to relax and also to go out and explore sherkin island and the beautiful surroundings Baltimore has to offer. The food was fantastic and the pints of Murphys the... More

Stayed in the waterfront for 2 nights over the Easter weekend. What first hits you is the location overlooking the harbour. The sea view costs a little bit extra but is a "must". The panoramic view is outstanding. We did have an issue with our room and was offered another overlooking the back garden but declined the change as the... More
