    The staff were extremely professional, friendly and approachable. Beds were very comfortable and food (both dinner and breakfast) were absolutely delicious, plentiful and fresh.

    For the only hotel in Skibberreen, it is a pity that there is no leisure or spa facilities-i would honestly believe that hotel would obtain more clientele if they had such amenities. There was cracks on bathroom tiles in bedroom which could be updated also.99E For a double room mid-week was somewhat over priced too.

    The staff were very pleasant especially the bar manager who went out of his way to discuss various topics of interest throughout the night of my stay. The food in the restaurant was excellent and the staff were very prompt.

    We were put in room 12, which was poorly cleaned bathroom we had to clean bath. Having a shower we had to wipe up the floor after showering. The glass divider was letting out water. We complained, & was put in another room 19, which was much nicer & situated. The room maids were not helpful & would not hold door open for me to take suit cases through. The dining was 1st class, also the waitresses. Also we asked for more shower gel & was told only 1-daily per room.

    I came and stayed with my mother for a few days and we both agreed it was one of the nicest, most relaxing stays we've ever had! The staff were 2nd to none, the food was amazing, the over all service was fantastic and will reccommend it to anyone!

    We liked everything, didn't have a single complaint! The one thing I would say as a mere suggestion would be to put more tea and coffee sachets in the rooms as I like tea!

    The food was excellent. We ate breakfast on both of our day's stay and also ate in the hotel in the evening. The hotel was busy with lots of locals which is always a good sign. The staff were friendly and very efficient and recommended the Ring of Beara as a good way to see West Cork and they were right. The scenery was magnificent and we had a really good day. Try the French Toast with bacon and maple syrup at breakfast- it was really delicious.

    Excellent location; helpful, friendly staff; large, very comfortable room; bright, clean hotel.

    Everything was fine. Perhaps a plaque or something to explain the history of the adjacent bridge?
