My husband and I stayed a the VL for the June Bank Holiday Weekend. We chose the hotel based on the reviews here on TA. The hotel is immaculate. The toilets were the cleanest I have ever seen on my travels! The staff were very pleasant, check in took all of 5mins. We had dinner on our first evening and it was an enjoyable experience. Though our steaks that were ordered 'well done', did arrive 'medium rare' Once this was pointed out, we recieved an apology and the problem was dealt with. The hotel is in a great location, quiet and just two minutes from the centre of things, Lahinch can be a very busy noisy place, filled with stags, hens and mostly young people having fun, but its still well worth a visit. All in all the hotel is everything that the previous reviewers have said, except that maybe the Sea view from the restaurant is a slight exaggeration, there is a distant sea view, from maybe just one table and it is a very distant one! We liked VL so much, we booked it when we were leaving for my daughter and her husband, (anniversary present) for the following weekend, and they had a very enjoyable stay as well.
