Reviewed 29 March 2012

Family run B&B close to town and the shops. Quiet and peaceful . What you need after a day a work. I stayed their with two work friends recently and will be returning shorty . One fault thou is the speed of the Wi Fi a tad slow formula needs

For our first Bed & Breakfast experience, Annabella Lodge was an excellent choice. The hostess made us feel welcome and after showing us to our room, provided us with a collection of menus from local restaurants so we could make an informed decision about where to go for dinner. The walk into town was not far – just across the round-about – so less than 5 minutes. Our room was very comfortable (there were chocolates!), and it was nice to have our own bathroom. Probably the best part was that the bath towels hung over the heating unit so they were warm – so nice! We were not provided with wash cloths, but we had been warned by travel guides that this might be the case and had brought our own. Even though the house seems to be at a busy intersection, the traffic noise did not disturb us, and in the room where we were (#9 at the end of the hall) we did not hear the other guests. I very much appreciated the breakfast choices – both hot and cold - and enjoyed the hearty meal we received which included homemade brown bread and fresh squeezed orange juice. We definitely enjoyed our stay and if we pass through Mallow on another occasion, I would consider staying at Annabella Lodge again.

Check in/out:
We arrived a little after 6pm and the host & hostess where busy since the majority of the guests also arrived a little late. We were treated courteously and shown around the public areas and to our room. Unlike many B&Bs the dining area was not locked up and we could use this as well as the small sitting room and the mini lounge at the top of the stair. All of this was direction was done in less than 5 minutes. Our check out was uneventful.
Staff:
After check in we had to go find the hostess, knock on the office door to ask some questions and get set up on the computer to get details and maps of Mallow. She also provided her picks for supper, brochures with vouchers and disappeared again. If you are looking for a lot of personal attention and to chat this is not the place to stay. I prefer to be given the details and left alone myself.
Housekeeping:
The landscaping is very nice, even in the fall out of season. The purpose built house was in perfect condition and was very comfortable. As I mentioned earlier the dining area was left open for visitor use. Visitors are not known for picking up their crumbs and I will not fault my hosts for this, since they are only responsible for putting on a great breakfast. They did put on a great breakfast. There were many people who left very early (for Ireland) a cold breakfast was made ready for them as they wished. Still by the time we ate you would not know a crowd of men had filled the room earlier.
Room:
We were a little apprehensive about this stay since there were no Trip Adviser reviews for the venue. Other sites showed a favorable record of visitor reviews. We were relieved to find the room to be much larger than we expected. It is about the size of a King Room in the states. The bathroom was very large with plenty of room. Nicely the towel rack was over the heater. We enjoy warm towels. The room vent is on the window. The cable selection was very limited like a basic plan. No SyFy but yes BBC 1 and 2. My other concerns for traveling in Ireland are as follows, Water pressure low as is common, Hot water/shower plenty available and the shower was fine even though many persons were up before we were, Sleep quality very comfortable, felt like home, a little firm. Noise level was surprisingly low. The place was filled yet we hardly heard anybody. It was like staying in a hotel of quality in the states. Wash clothes: yes there where. Toilet was a little slow. Environmental controls were found on the radiator and easy to use to make the room comfortable for our stay. Power supply was all Irish/British outlets.
Parking:
There is lots of parking up the left hand road behind the building. I say this because the house is positioned on a Y off the National Road out front. So you may as I did take the right side (Because I’m from the states and that is what we seem to naturally do.) and needed to turn around to get to the parking entrance.
Location:
Even though this location is at the intersection of two main roads and the train tracks it is very peaceful. Because of these same things it is an ideal place to stay while visiting Mallow. A short five minute walk gets you to the shops and another five to many eating choices. Another five gets you to many tourist destinations.
Internet:
Wireless internet worked perfectly.
Safety:
Always be aware of your surroundings and never act like a tourist. This is an easy location to be aware of your surroundings. While being in the middle of major transportation routes it still had a country setting and feel.
Helpful hints:
Best pricing I can find for this location is part of an independent travel package. Walking in Mallow seems much easier than finding parking even in the off season. The front two rooms are little off set from the others. I think that staying in these was so quiet because the bathrooms and closets act as a buffer from sound from the rest of the house.
Additional Information:
Supper easy to get to.
Would I stay here again?
Oh, yes I would.

Room Tip: If you have a large party you will not want the front rooms. For a close couple the front rooms are...
