8/10 Very good

Positive and negative
Location is great. I’ve never been asked for photo ID at check-in before…I found it odd …Room and downstairs were lovely, comfortable. There were insects coming out from under the bath. The carpet in hallway needs an upgrade, there were drips coming from the ceiling. I paid the €5 overnight car park fee and went off on a hike with my kids. Half way round Bray Head I thought of renewing the car park ticket , but nothing I could do. When we got back to hotel at 5pm, car was clamped. €125 had to be paid for release fee😠 I feel this is unreasonable as we were staying the 2 nights.

Don’t bother
Very expensive for the quality of a very old & run-down building. Then to pay extra for parking is poor. Very tired hotel & staff generally grumpy

8/10 Very good

Hotel staff were excellent, couldn’t be more helpful. Hotel was spotless. The only complaint I have is the restaurant, not enough choices on menu, we were left over an hour before food was served and requested drinks while my daughter was having dersert and did not get them. Menu needs to be updated for evening meals.
