Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
Casual and private. Perfect walking distance to downtown Kinsale. Very enjoyable backyard deck for hanging out in peace and quiet and for bringing a tasty dinner back to enjoy with travelling friends. Soft coloured purple doors a bonus, on a personal note.

Disliked: Staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
This was the second worst place we’ve ever stayed in over 40years of travelling! There was no service to speak of, the walls were paper thin and we could hear every word the people next door, the floors all creaked an we heard every move made in the whole place, it was the most expensive than any of the four star hotels we stayed in on the rest of our three week trip in Ireland...a disaster!

Great location - basic accommodation
Clean and comfortable the accommodation was ok - however the shower was poor and you had to remember to switch the immersion heater on. The room we had in the loft had little headroom and the bathroom door was particularly low resulting in a number of painful encounters
