We stayed quite recently for 2 nights and the hotel is supremely comfortable and all the staff are fantastic. I spent a whole day reading and being looked after very discreetly by the lovely staff of this hotel. The rooms are beautiful with old fashioned high ceilings, beautiful decor and of course amazing views of the coast. It is in...

This hotel is a great value. The best location in Waterville. I enjoyed the ocean view and smelling the salt air. The staff was friendly and accommodating. The owners are hands-on, sometimes helping out the restaurant servers when things get busy, for example, ensuring that everything runs smoothly. The dinner menu is very good as is the bar service. I...

We stayed in room 512 which was a beautiful room with lots of character and a king size bed and a great bathroom. Fabulous view out to sea. Only criticism would be about the curtains. There is a very large street light outside the window and it is on all night and the cream curtains offer little escape from it,...

The staff were very attentive and friendly. Atmosphere buzzing. Food excellent. The hotel bar was really busy but this did not affect the service. Would highly recommend this hotel, rooms clean and of a good size

Nice hotel and friendly staff, the location is absolutely beautiful. Waking up in the morning and looking at the ocean from your bed is priceless! Breakfast at the hotel restaurant on average but "The fisherman bar" is WOW, specially for lunch, and need a separate review!

Great staff and lovely food in the Fishermans Bar. The full Irish was also excellent for breakfast. A very nice place to stay to explore this stunning coastline. We had a fantastic view from the room.
