We recently stayed at the Balincourt Hotel which is in a great location. Riki and his wife were fantastic hosts, nothing was too much trouble. I would recommend a stay at this hotel and will definitely be going back.

The ground floor room would be suitable if your mum ha mobility problems the shower has grab handles and is easy to get into . I think it can be a double or twin but I do not think there is a lift to the other floors
