Positive Reviews

Plenty of peace and comfort

According to travellers, the rooms here offer plenty of peace and comfort. Not only are the quarters reportedly comfortable and spacious, but they also benefit from peaceful surroundings because of the property’s secluded rural location. Another factor that makes guests feel like they are getting away from it all is the lovely countryside and coastal scenery all around the hotel. Those staying in the suites and upgrade rooms adore the bay views that are on offer.

Spa and leisure club earn praise

One feature of the hotel that guests love is the spa and leisure club. Reviewers who use it say they can enjoy a range of excellent treatments as well as leisure facilities such as the gym and the indoor swimming pool.

Customer care proves popular

There is frequent praise from guests for the friendly, welcoming and helpful members of staff. The customer care is generally so good that reviewers often explain that they would happily return and stay again.

Negative Reviews

Mild maintenance and cleanliness concerns

Reviewers sometimes take issue with maintenance issues in the rooms. These include ageing items of furniture, marked walls and tired carpets. There are also occasional cleanliness problems reported such as stained upholstery, dusty patches and insufficiently cleaned bathrooms.

Private transportation might be necessary

Due to this hotel’s position in the countryside outside Kinsale, it can prove difficult to get to for those without their own transport. Drivers can also be critical of the way they have a single-track road to negotiate once they leave the main road on the journey to the hotel’s front door. For those without their own vehicles, the prospect of forking out for taxis is another source of disappointment. Indeed, some reviewers mention that a shuttle bus to take guests to Kinsale wouldn’t go amiss.

Breakfast On the Slow Side.

Overall, breakfast is a massive hit with guests as dishes are cooked fresh and many choices are offered, however, when it gets busy it often feels understaffed as there aren't enough staff to escort guests to tables, clear away dishes, or bring coffee/tea
