Small hotel with good sized rooms. Clean & if you're lucky enough to have a room at the front, you'll have the most spectacular views of Keel beach & the Minaún cliffs. The restaurant serves great food, with a menu that has something for everyone. And their wine selection is amazing! Best located accommodation on the Island; great start point... More

Worst for Service. Disaster for Food. Rude and Non Caring. This place is on Achill Island. Gives Ireland and Mayo a Bad Name. Dont Dare Try it even if your Starving. 45 mins for Lamb that never came. So we left.

Ate here mid-week for a farewell meal with family (table pre-booked). Teresa was very welcoming and accommodation and the staff were extremely helpful and friendly. Food was spot-on and a big improvement from when I last ate here over 5 years ago. Our party included a young child but there was something on the menu for everyone. Food was served... More

We visited the hotel for dinner. The standard of the food and the service was excellent. The portion sizes are very generous. The standard and presentation of the food was far above expectation - delicious! It's definitely somewhere I would recommend.

Called in without a reservation. The staff where very friendly and polite and found us a table, they were very helpful when dealing with some dietary requirements the table had. Our food arrived in a timely manner. However, it was all a little bland.
