Reviewed 27 April 2014

I stayed here with my wife on Saturday night 26th of April - what an unreal hotel. Firstly was greeted by a lovely receptionist team check in quick and efficient. We were very kindly upgraded as it was my wifes birthday to a deluxe room. One of the nicest rooms I have stayed in a long time. Room was spotless clean, large and spacious. Bathroom was lovely and we had a balcony with a stunning view of the resort. I had a quick swim after check in- pool was large and staff again very friendly. We had a quick drink in the bar before dinner- a lovely atmosphere and quick and efficient service. Dinner experience was just as good- excellent choice on the menu- the food was fantastic!! compliments to the chef- service was prompt with a smile even though the restaurant was full. We took a walk around the resort after dinner and the atmosphere was lovely- the resort was very busy- we had planned on going into town for a few but decided to stay put it was so nice. Check out the next morning friendly and swift. The resort is stunning- but what makes the resort is its extra friendly staff and management. We were made feel so welcome by everyone. We will be back and make sure tell friends and family of our experience.

New beds needed they are old and way too soft my back in pain from them. Toilet Flush button missing - one of them. No heat in room for a few hours and problems with the hot water too. Dinner service very poor too much of a delay between courses menu very limited in restaurant and bar and breakfast was very poor came down at 9.30 and hardly anything left !!!!!

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

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...
