          Impossible to apply make up in extremely badly lit bathroom - a very common mistake in hotels. We need a good strong front light and magnifying mirror. room not cleaned until well into afternoon. Free wifi was advertised and it was one of the reasons for selecting the hotel. On arrival we were told we had to pay for it. When checking out we overheard that there was free wifi in common areas. Made us both very cross.

          Helpful staff and the bus facility into kinsale. Bedrooms & bathrooms were lovely

          Beds were smaller than other hotels . Breakfast buffet was slightly below standard / too cold

          Friendly staff. Spacious room. Nice view from the room Good room service.

          Entrance and exit to the main road difficult to manouvre. Breakfast precooked instead of on order. Lack of choice of breads on menu - little sign of homebaking.

          The Restaurant was great with very friendly staff. Staff in reception not so good. Arrived at hotel at 3.45pm and was left waiting one hour before I could go to my room. Was told it was busy eventhough check in is at 3.00pm.

          Very small bar.

        • Couple
          5.4

          Good location - very quiet at night

          Didn't consider it to be a four star hotel. Cleanliness of rooms was not great, Staff were average.

        • Family with children

          Great location for relaxation & peaceful with wonderful scenery

          A little bit out of Kinsale

        • Couple

          Receptionist was nice and friendly - that was the only redeeming feature in one of the worst experiences I ever had at a hotel.

          The room we were given was a disabled room 101 - beware! The bed sank in the middle and if either of us was disabled I am not sure how we could have got in and out of it to be honest. There was a ticking noise going on for part of the night that kept me awake and after much searchign I discovered it was the emergency disability alarm that need to be reset! Trying to figure this out at 3am is not what you pay to stay in hotels to do. Breakfast - one word - disaster. The say they serve breakfast till 11am, we were there at 10.45am (a little late admittedly) however, there was nothing left, not a crumb!! Another couple stood at the buffet in disbelief also and asked a sour and reluctant server if we could have some food. To have to practically beg to be given something to eat in a 4 star hotel is a bit rich. We did eventually get some black pudding and greasy sausages!! There was no milk on the table and I when I went to ask for some from a waiter who was clearing a table, he handled me a jug from the table he was clearing!!! Another thing the shuttle bus, no where did I read or were we told that the shuttle bus was €3 each, why pay that when you can get a taxi at whatever time you want. Also the hotel is 5km from Kinsale and as we were told by the taxi driver, technically not even in Kinsale. Would not recommend staying in this hotel.

          Kinsale is a gorgeous location and the Carlton, while a bit further out, has gorgeous views.

          When we got to our room housekeeping hadnt left towels so we had to chase down. Other than that the room was spotless if a bit small.

        • Family with children
          5.0

          There was a long hair in one of the cups in the room and the upholstry was in very bad condition throughout the hotel.

        • Older travelers
          7.0

          Quiet location and facilities.

          Lighting dim in the bathroom, size of the bed small for the size of the room.

          I was attending a friend’s wedding on Friday the 14th December. The hotel can't be faulted for cleanliness and decor. However I was very disappointed with the service at the Carlton, Kinsale. There was insufficient bar staff attending the upper bar when the guests had arrived for a pre-dinner drink. Dinner service was poor and I felt that the service staff were over stretched which resulted in them being challenged to respond to guests requests during service. The result was our table ran out of vegetables and weren’t replenished until the end of the main course. Salt and Pepper mills were empty and water had to be constantly requested. The evening service of the bar at the Reception, while very responsive, on 3 occasions when I left a drink at the bar and spent time on the dance floor the drinks were cleared by the time I returned. I also needed the assistance of the receptionist during the night, however when I called from my room there was no response. While each of these is a relatively small individual issue, they very much contributed to my overall experience at the hotel. I know that the Bridal couple would be bitterly disappointed that I felt like this and in respect to them and their generosity I won’t be giving them this feedback. Customer service in the purchase of any product is key to the sense of value and unfortunately I can’t include good service as part of my experience at the hotel.
