Visited in July and stayed for a week. We're out every evening so can't comment on the evening meals but breakfast was wonderful and views breathtaking. The bar was cozy and welcoming and we enjoyed lunch there and out on the terrace. The rooms were comfortable and quiet. Am planning to return again soon.

We had a wonderful holiday in Ballycotton. Lots to do in the area to suit all age groups. This hotel made it very special, the views are outstanding. Although the rooms are a little dated, they were perfectly clean and cosy. Food and service in the restaurant was fabulous. We would definitely go back.

I always think that the best way to judge a hotel is to answer the question: Would you go back there again? The answer is a big yes. We were especially lucky as the weather was beautiful for the weekend so we really saw the hotel at its best. It is old fashioned but in general the staff are friendly,... More

The hotel is on the cliff overlooking Ballycotton harbour and the bay. The panoramic view is fantastic. With a bedroom overlooking this there is nothing nicer As for hotel itself we received a very warm welcome Our room was neat tidy and clean with a view as mentioned. The breakfast was excellant with some unusual choices. We would go again
