Very plain hotel with no air con in the middle of an industrial estate. Unbelievably hot in the hotel, every window in the building was open, difficult to sleep. Rooms very bare and not to 4 star standard. Food in bar was nice but again overpriced for what it was. Pool was good. Staff were nice.

Friendly and professional staff. Easy access to Cobh, Cork City and Kinsale (45 mins, maximum). Light sleepers might be bothered by the highway noise. If so, ask for room facing away from the expressway. Top-notch food in both the restaurant and the less formal lounge (note different menus for each).
