the location of this hotel is undeniable on the banks of Bandon river, the gardens and views are beautiful, but you cant stay in the garden and look at the river for ever. Problems start when you get inside. The room was cold, no working radiators,Lights were not working, missing bulbs (very dangerous!) TV 7 channels but only 4 working. Bathroom cold tap not working, shower fit only for midgets. Room still not serviced at 4.30 in afternoon, beds not changed no clean towels. Walls paper thin we could here the occupier of the next room snoring. A lovely restaurant not used but clients forced to use back room bar with no character. Breakfast got smaller each day and served on dirty plates. Staff were overworked doubling up on tasks. All of these issues were raised with the management who were happy to compensate us, but that is not the point the holiday was over and we would have prefered no problems at all. We will not be returning.
