“Two Stars at Best”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 April 2014

This resort hotel bragged about being a "four star" resort. Maybe 50 years ago!! Our room had water damage and smelled of mold. Lights near our bed were so dim you couldn't see to read. Never did get the TV to work. The bathroom shower leaked (maybe what caused the water damage along the wall separating the bathroom from the bedroom). No wash clothes were supplied. They had a portable heater in our room. Soon learned that's because the thermostat didn't work. Only found two electrical outlets and one had to be used for our heater. They had better get their act together if they want to stay in business.

Dear Sandra R

Many thanks for taking the time to convey your comments.I dont see any mention in our guest log record on reception but if you did contact the front desk they would have tried to solve your issues. There are 7 sockets in all rooms . An exta heating source was placed in your room prior to arrival as we experienced an unseasonal dip in temperature didn't want our guests to suffer. Apologises for the termostat not working correclty. I would be delighted to disucss these matters further if you would like to mail me conor.otoole@blarneygolfresort.com

Regards
Conor

Stayed here a couple of years ago and really enjoyed our stay. Came back in late April 2014 and was completed disappointed to the state of the hotel. Lodge rooms were minimally cleaned. Carpets were worn and dirty, kitchen had a "deep fried" smell, stains on the back of the couch, cobwebs in the bedroom and a toilet that had a leak; in fact we did have to refill the tank with tap water from a bucket!. It appears that they new owners attempted to paint the walls as you could see the roller strokes of different color paint and they never actually painted entire walls, only sections.

This hotel has just reopened after being in receivership. They obviously did not put much money into it before reopening. The bathroom had mold around the bathtub, the tv did not work, we could only find one electric plug which was by the floor in the hallway and the beds bounced like you were in a hammock. The manager was wonderful and tried to accommodate us, but this hotel is definitely not a four star and should be reviewed again.

Room Tip: If you are not a golfer, this resort is not in an ideal location. There is nothing of interest clos...

Just spent three nights in this hotel & we thoroughly enjoyed our stay.it is very family friendly with a kids club,karting area & outdoor playground-the kids loved this as the weather was great,even if it is lacking a bit of equipment.a few more swings & a sea- saw would be a a great addition to this space.
the main pool is a good size,well maintained & a nice temperature.steam room,sauna & jacuzzi are all in very good condition.kids pool is small but sufficient.i liked the body lotion,cleanser & cotton pads offered in the ladies changing rooms,as an added touch.
Staff are very friendly.we ate in the bar every evening-prices are reasonable.breakfast is self service buffet and has something for every taste.big choice & nice setting in the restaurant.
Our family room compared well with rooms we have stayed in elsewhere.cleaned every day.nice sized bathroom.overall very pleasant stay & would recommend it as good value for money.

Just had five nights here staying in a Lodge. Considering this is meant to be a 4 Star hotel I would say it's average at best. Never had our beds made, tea and coffee weren't restocked and no replacement toilet roll during our entire stay!!! TV in room was rubbish and hard to work. Breakfast was ok not something I'd shout about. Nice swimming pool. Place needs a bit of a shakeup.
