“Guest House KIP!!!”
Reviewed 16 September 2012

We arrived down to this supposed guesthouse and were total incredulous as to what lay waiting for us. First we couldn't check in until three, we had to store our bags in a little hallway next door to a shop. When it came to check in we found the place eventually, a small doorway and up the stairs, I thought it was a joke but we soon stopped laughing when an argument broke out for about 20 minutes because although we paid in full up front we were asked for a deposit each. We were told straight away' no food, no drink, no tan, no makeup etc., I thought we were in Fawlty Towers. It didn't stop there, the rooms were a disgrace, dog kennels are bigger, it is grossly run down, filthy, a fire hazard, no hot water, the list is endless. Please nobody stay there, my daughter came home covered in a rash.

Room Tip: Very good tip stay in Langtons Hotel

this premises is a fire hazard,there is no way out only through the front door.The owner was obnoxious,Money is his God as he was dancing around us for deposits etc from the moment we entered this premises.The bed linen was filthy.I ended up with a rash all over me.The showers were useless,no hot water.I would not recommend this premises to anyone.If there was a fire you would not have a hope of escaping.

Organized a stag and booked 24 respectale people in here with no messers. Owner demanded a 300euro deposit against damages up front along with full cost of accommodation. Money to be given back following morning. Owner attempted to keep €150 from deposit as a breakfast bowl was broke in one room. No hot water in any shower. No running water in some of the toilets. Owner came in shouting around building at 9.30am that everyone had to check out. Rooms cramped and damp with most people having to share beds. All in all I wouldn't put a dog in this building.
