“Excellent hospitality and food.”
Reviewed July 25, 2012

The best breakfast I have ever had. Presentation amazing!
Choice delectable!
The clean White cloth was a foil to the beautiful in season blue berries. The salmon too was fresh, and the scrambled eggs soft.The scones were home made with jam, not of the packaged variety

The hospitality was excellent. I arrived late but it was no bother. I got help with my bags, and a cup of tea on arrival, with the kind offer of sandwiches.The hosts were full of helpful information on the surrounding areas.

The house was very well decorated with high ceilings and comfortable decor.

We stayed here on a one night stop off in Cork and we absolutely loved it! Our hosts Dolores and Mark were warm and welcoming and the house is a haven of taste and elegance. When we arrived Dolores presented us with a pot of tea and fresh baked apple tart and cream in the lounge. Delicious! They went out of their way to offer us a lift if we went out locally for a meal or drinks and they couldn't have been more accommodating.
We had a single and double room. The "single" room came with a beautiful double slay bed while the double room had a heavenly double bed and a single bed. There was complementary wine, delicious biscuits and a selection of teas and brewed coffee in both rooms. Everything was spotless and the towels in the ensuite were fluffy: and I mean really fluffy!.
Breakfast was fantastic with a large plate of strawberries and blueberries for us as well as cereals, yogurts, juices and homemade breads and jams. There was a breakfast menu from which we had two full Irish Breakfasts cooked to perfection and pancakes with bacon and maple syrup.
We had a wonderful time and our only negative is that we weren't staying for a week! It was my first trip away with my mother-in-law and I'm delighted to say she was highly impressed! Thank you for everything.

Room Tip: Both rooms we had were better than most hotels we have stayed in.

Great service from Delores, Mark and their family. Our kids loved waking up and looking out the window at the cows each morning. Great breakfast as well, and great conversations with Delores and Mark in the lounge in the evening. Overall wonderful experience. Also loved the complimentary water, wine and cookies. Great people, great location in Co Cork.

We stayed here on 14th July 2012 and have to praise the absolutely exceptional level of hospitality we received from Dolores and Mark.

We decided to book a B&B last minute as the drive home was over 3 hours and we had been up and busy since 4am. The extremely short notice was absolutely no problem for Dolores and Mark (the owners), and from the moment we walked through the door we were made to feel at home. We were welcomed with some lovely tea and delicious rhubarb tart with cream to relax with in the beautiful cosy yet spacious lounge.

The house itself is modern and traditional all in one, and is decorated and maintained to the highest standards. There is plenty of space with immaculate attention to detail throughout. The bedroom we stayed in (Room 1) is absolutely beautiful, and equipped with everything you will need and more to ensure your stay is a pleasant and comfortable one. There is a flat screen tv, deliciously comfortable bed and bedding, a desk and a lovely large wardrobe.There is an appealing welcome tray with tea and coffee making facilities including biscuits, red wine and white wine. The en-suite is very modern and furnished beautifully. I couldn't believe how clean and shiny the bathroom (and shower) was, and it's equipped with luxury toiletries and soft, fluffy towels. The shower was temperature and pressure perfect! We had the most comfortable fulfilling nap that afternoon and sleep that night.

The breakfast next morning was exceptional. The freshest produce was used and we were spoiled for choice with a variety of freshly made hot and cold drinks, cereals, homemade bread and fruit. A hot menu with the most delicious freshly cooked foods (the scrambled egg and full Irish breakfast is absolutely delightful) is supplied. We will remember this breakfast for a long time.... absolutely delicious!!!!!!

Dolores and Mark could not have been more accommodating and hospitable. They deliver such a friendly and professional service. Nothing was too much trouble and they kindly lifted us into Bandon for the evening which is just a couple of minutes drive up the road. They also offered to collect us. A heartfelt thank you to both, who really enhanced our stay even further with their wonderful hospitality.

Overall, a truly memorable stay. We can not think of a single flaw - nothing was overlooked! Extremely comfortable and clean, very attractively decorated, beautifully furnished, and exceptional service delivered from Dolores and Mark. Could not recommend this B&B more to anyone and we will most definitely be returning on our next stay down in Cork. Terri and Tom O' Grady

We were in the area for a party and Laurel House was suggested as a place to stay. Thankfully we got in ahead of everyone else as it was Five Star all the way. Upon arrival we were met by our great hosts Mark and Dolores. Complimentary Wine, Water etc. were laid on in the room as well as some light bites in the Living Area downstairs. I am in the Golf Travel Business and the three important areas are Good Bed, Breakfast and Shower. Laurel House excelled in each of these areas. The Breakfast was as good as you could imagine with homemade breads, jams, local procduce and berries from the garden - why go to five star hotel when you can just pop into Laurel House.
Mark even took us to party and offered to collect us....now that what I call service. Great views of the rolling irish countryside from our room. On behalf of the five of us who stayed there, a big thank you to Dolores, Mark and Boys. Best Wishes for the future and looking forward to popping in again very soon.

I have recently visited this beautiful B&B for a weekend visit with 5 other members of my family.

Not only is the house stunning and of the highest standard, it has one of the most picturesque backdrops i have seen.

Mark and Dolores and their sons word endlessly to make sure everything you need is provided for, nothing is too much trouble. Will 100% be staying at this B&B in future when over visiting family.

In my opinion, no other B&B or hotel would even come close!!!!!

See you guys soon,

Martine and Chris xxx

Myself and my fiancee stayed here recently for one night. From the moment we arrived Dolores was welcoming and friendly, offering us tea and warm homemade apple tart. Herself and her husband Mark were a pleasure to chat to and provided us with a wealth of useful information on places to visit and eat. The room and en-suite were fantastic, complete with complementary mini bottles of wine, homemade cookies and tea and coffee facilities. The bed was also extremely comfortable.
Unfortunately my trip was work related so we didn't get to take in many sights but we will definately be back. The lovely town of Clonakilty is only 15mins drive away and Inchydoney beach another 5mins further. Thanks again Dolores and Mark for making our business trip a little more comfortable.
