    Lovely quiet hotel, with excellent facilities. Comfortable rooms, with beautiful spacious bathroom

    We had a room that had adjoining doors, making it very noisy early morning when next door guests were getting ready, it was like they were in the same room as us! Perhaps this should be pointed out on checking in.

    The layout of the room was very nice. The bed extremely comfortable. Bathroom with shower and bath separate was also nice. We liked the surrounding area but didn't have time to enjoy it and was surprised it was so remote. Having said that, it was beautiful and we would go back again.

    Fabulous

    Very comfortable and relaxed atmosphere

    There were weddings on 2 of the days. If you are not a wedding guest, this is pretty intrusive. The lighting in the bathrooms is terrible - try shaving under that light!

    Fabulous

    It was a very relaxing experience . As we arrived late we did not have the opportunity to assess the hotel experience.

    Bed and breakfast price would be preferable.

    Very good

    I would stay there again.

    Only thing put me off the pool was full of kids(swimming lessons ) and mothers with babies and buggies at 3 pm to 7 PM.Hotel guests couldnt find a peaceful at this time.Steam room and sauna was very good.

    Fabulous

    Breakfast was very good and the garden suite was clean, bright and spacious. The pool and leisure centre were also very good. The Hotel has a beautiful scenic location.

    The bar was too bland and lacked character. The cost of the courtesy bus to Kinsale was far too expensive especially for a family of 5.

    Fabulous

    i loved the amazing views,the lovely rooms, the friendly helpful atmosphere.

    I found it odd that they provided complimentry shampoo and conditioner and body lotion, but they didnt provide bubble bath or shower gel , which was a bit annoying because i had a bath and shower and didnt bring any because i expected a hotel of that calibre to provide it.

    The peace and tranquility - exceptional The views were spectacular The staff were friendly but not intrusive. The rooms were well appointed with wonderful views

    The signage on the road from Cork was a bit obscure meaning we had to go into Kinsale and ask directions. No big deal though!
