Rebecca, was absolutely PHENOMENAL in Caffe Veregano. That girl deserves a raise. She was so kind and catering and she has such big and wonderful things coming here way. She was such a laugh and very enjoyable to be around. This girl is MANAGEMENT MATERIAL. And I hope you print this out and have it in every single media post you put up in the next week! I would give Rebecca 100 stars. She deserves the world. Absolutely best service I’ve received in a long time. Hope that this gets acknowledged. Thank you REBECCA. Hope that this is the spelling of her name but she’s commended and will be recommending to all of my friends. Also a happy belated birthday to her next weekend hope she has an absolute ball!! Thanks again Rebecca SERVICE WAS EXCELLENT!!!!!!!

My son and his girlfriend booked a table here for his 19th birthday. When they arrived the manager told them there was no table available. They said that they had cancelled the booking in the afternoon and had sent them a text. They never received a text but did receive an email 3 hours after the time of the booking (booking was at 7pm, received email at 10pm) to say that the booking had been cancelled by them. So be warned, no point in booking this restaurant as you cannot be sure it will be honoured. Completely spoilt his birthday.

Highly recommend this hotel. It has everything you want under ome roof and they dont compromise on quality despite having three restaurants, a coffee shop, bar with extensive whiskey, gin and cocktail menus. Rooms, although small, also provide all you need , are brightly decorated and spotlessly clean. It is right on the promedade with the wondeful sounds and sights of the sea on your doorstep. And to top it off..a very professional and attentive staff who are always there to help. I honestly cant fault this hotel. I will be back!

This hotel is in a wonderful location just steps to the beach front and minutes to many bars and restaurants. The staff are friendly and helpful. Our room was small but clean and had a lovely view over bray and the beach. Will definitely be back.
