Reviewed January 22, 2014

we stayed here on 11th January. We had gotten an afternoon tea on arrival with B&B. On arrival the girls on the desk where very welcoming and we checked in early our room was gorgeous, massive bed and lovely decor and then we spent a few hours around Skibbereen shopping they have fabulous shops there. We came back for our afternoon tea and it was set up in front of the fire with china and all very posh, and it was served to us by a lovely lady, we really enjoyed this. We went out for dinner to the Paragon up town our meal was devine. Breakfast the next morning was served by the same lady who did our afternoon tea and must say breakfast was one of the nicest i ever tasted. the whole experience was 10 out of 10, the service, cleanliness, slept like a log.
I would really like to come back here and id say we will book for maybe April time.
Skibbereen is a gem of a town with so much to offer.

I attended a wedding here in July of 2012 in the region of 130 guests. As management in another 4 star West Cork property I was very much surprised at the level of quality for both food & the staff which provided it. A job very well done.

I wish you the best as you continue to grow both your business & custom.

I booked a double room for one night and requested a blanket and a sheet on my bed, when we went to our room sure enough the bed was made up as I requested, unlike a hotel in Knightsbridge, London. There they gave me a duvet cover (as a sheet!) and a blanket to make up the bed myself! We have had their "early bird" dinner on several occasions - €23 for 3 courses + a glass of wine. Very enjoyable meals every time. The staff couldn't be more helpful. I strongly recommend this hotel. I didn't use either the pool or the Fitness centre so I cannot give an opinion on either.

Room Tip: we had a room at the side, away from the street noise.

My sister had her wedding at the hotel in mid- November and I want to compliment the management and staff for their efforts and attention to detail in making it such a great day:-)! The food was of the highest quality and everyone commented on how good the food was, given that there were over 200 guests this was no mean achievement. Sincere thanks to Neil and Elaine and all the staff at the West Cork for a wonderful day. It just goes to show, stay local and enjoy the best that west cork has to offer!!

We were there fo about 3 nights last November and found it friendly, accomodating, great food. The room was very clean and nice.
I have booked here again for my holiday in March 2014 for 4 nights.
This place is central to a lot of shops, nice freindly streets to walk around.
I think what made our stay good was how the owner took time to introduce himself to people and ask if there was anything he could do for you, Not a lot of places go these extra yards.

Room Tip: Our room was facing the river and this old bridge, very nice views of the town over from the river...
