Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 20 May 2014 via mobile

My mother and I stayed here for 2 nights while we visited family. We have stayed here on numerous occasions and the last being the first time under the new management. This was one of the best stays we had. Recently renovated the hotel has taken on a new life. It is brighter and more spacious than before. Our room had the most amazing view of Youghal bay. All members of staff were friendly and efficient, they dealt with our requirements in the most professional manner and with a smile.

We stayed at the Walter Raleigh for three nights over Easter while visiting relations in Youghal. wow, it could not be more different from what it was before. it has been beautifully renovated and the décor is fresh and airy and very elegant. everything is pristine, we wondered if we were the very first people to stay in our room ( we asked, we weren't.) the food was delicious and the staff were lovely and super helpful whenever we needed anything. the room rate was extremely reasonable and we will definitely stay there again.

Room Tip: this isn't a negative but it's worth noting that the hotel is on the roadfront and there is...

Myself, husband and two children recently stayed at the Walter Raleigh Hotel. What a transformation! The hotel has been completely refurbished and is absolutely fabulous. We had a beautiful family room with sea views which was spacious, clean, bright and beautifully decorated. The breakfast was really lovely, and the full Irish Breakfast was freshly cooked to order. We particularly liked the way the fried eggs were served with a tiny circle of yolk at the top - they looked like a volcano and the kids were delighted with them. The staff were all so nice and friendly and nothing was too much trouble. We enjoyed our stay so much, we are planning our next visit to the Walter Raleigh within the next few weeks. Looking forward to seeing you all again and thanks for a lovely stay.

A lovely hotel set in a quiet piece of Ireland, very freindly staff and excellent food. Plenty of parking which is locked secure at night, excellent views as this hotel is on the sea front and a short walk from town.

Room Tip: The 3rd floor has better views of the sea, which is only across the road

From the moment we arrived at the Walter Raleigh Hotel my parents and I were treated as friends. Nothing was too much for Nick, Grace and their wonderful staff. I had mentioned when making the reservation that it was a special occassion and on arrival we were told that there were complementary coffee/tea and scones in the bar for us. There was also a congratulatory card in my parents bedroom for their 50th wedding anniversary.
The rest of my family came for a special dinner on St. Patricks day and Nick and Thomas made sure that there were enough tables reserved for us in the bar.
Special mention to Trish, Lorraine and Thomas who made the stay very special. Thank you.
I would have no hesitation in recommending this hotel for a lovely relaxing stay.

Refurbished to a high standard the Walter Raleigh has a warm and friendly atmosphere with staff that are prepared to go that extra mile to ensure your stay with them is second to none. The food is fantastic and the rooms having a sea view are great with the most comfy beds. I haven't a bad word to say about this hotel and recommend this hotel to anyone, I for one will be returning again and again

There were four adults and three children, all under 4 yrs, for lunch on mother's day. As the hotel was recently reopened we were looking forward to our meal. We had booked a table in the bar. On arrival we saw that the bar was very busy. On being seated we were given our menus and we all ordered. Some of the children did not want chips only potato and vegetables. The food was lovely, but service was very slow. We were there for 3pm and did not leave till 5pm. While we were getting up to leave we saw that there had been a special menu for mothers day, we were never given this menu, just the regular one. Also, the childrens potato and veg were 6euro each, which I thought was excessive. Their mother had wanted a main course that she could divide between them but the only one with potatoes and veg was beef, which was sold out. This would have worked out better overall. I can appreciate that the hotel has only recently reopened but we were disappointed for that special occasion.
