We stayed in this hotel for two nights with a special offer voucher. The hotel looks quite run down from the outside but don’t be put off as the inside is lovely. The reception, bar etc have all been recently redecorated in a very tasteful fashion. We were glad to see it had been done in keeping with the old style of the building. The rooms are currently being refurbished. We were in one of the ones which hasn’t been done yet but it was still really nice with a lovely large and very comfortable bed and a great view of the sea. The only problem we had was that the window seal was almost completely gone but I’m sure this will be addressed when the room is being re-done. We ate in the bar on the first night and the food was excellent. All the staff in the hotel were extremely pleasant and helpful. Our only complaint was that breakfast was a bit poor. The options were very limited and the cooked breakfast and porridge were not great. It was a bit of a disappointment compared to the quality of the dinner. Maybe this is something that the hotel could look into. However, I would still recommend it as a good place to stay in Youghal.
