Our new favourite spot!
We came down to Waterville for two nights as my fiancé was competing in the Hardman triathlon - we weren’t looking for anything more than convenience, so the Butler Arms seemed perfect location-wise for us. We really didn’t expect it to be as lovely as it was. We arrived and were greeted at reception by a really lovely lady, who quickly checked us in, and surprised us by telling us they were overbooked on the room type we had booked, so they had upgraded us! We got to our room, and it was honestly gorgeous, we had a floor to ceiling bay window overlooking the sea - it was the most beautiful view. We also had a couch and chairs to sit and look out from. We ate in the restaurant the first night, the service and good was delicious, with our table overlooking the sea - beautiful. Breakfast both mornings was lovely, and again the service great. We really, really loved it there and would recommend to anyone - we will 100% be back! It made our Waterville trip for us!
