Myself & my sister stayed there while attending a hen party in Lisdoonvarna over the Singles weekend festival and the overall experience was quite disapponting.
We arrived just before 5pm on the Saturday afternoon and the first thing we encountered was not unlike 'Fort Knox; ..... All 3 door bolted shut and it took 5 minutes for someone to answer. When we joked about this we were told sternly that the doors are kept shut from 3-5pm daily. The busiest weekend of the year?!!
Up to the room which was at best quite basic. It was a twin bedded room, quite pokey with an ancient television and furniture that had seen better days. As it was a very warm day my sister attempted to open the archaic windows only to have them slam down on the fingers .... Not a great start!
It was emphasised that the front door must be locked upon entering and leaving which was fair enough. When we returned home from the night out I went upstairs with the intention of coming back down immediately to get something out of the car and obviously I hadn't locked the door as I was going straight back down ..... However in the meantime the owner had been down and locked the door ahead of me and greeted me grumpily in the hall over this.
Breakfast was adequate but it was all topped off when it came to checking out! We were booked in under a group booking for €50 pp. However, when paying we were asked for €60 each which I considered absolute extortion. This establishment lists €40pps as their rates on their website but I guess it was lets milk it given the busy weekend. I could have stayed at a top hotel in a major city for the amount!
Overall experience shocking ..... Overcharged and underdelivered
