10/10 Excellent


Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
Happy smiling helpful staff greet you, comfortable clean, quiet & a stone throw from a choice of spectacular beaches, Falcarragh beach, 10min drive & very recommended for sunrise stroll

6/10 Okay


Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service
When we arrived we were given the key to our room only to discover that not only was it not ready but there were still items of clothing in it presumably from the previous guest. We were then given a different room but our intended room had a much nicer view. The food was not great and the emphasis seemed to be more on quantity rather than quality. The staff were pleasant and helpful but would probably do with some additional training and the kitchen could do with some input from an expert and experienced chef. One other guest likened the hotel to Faulty Towers. In summary not a disaster but certainly could do with some improvement.
