“Just like a Building Site”
Reviewed 12 June 2006

I tend to agree with the last reviewer that the hotel, at present, is real dump. The new owner, who is a property developer rather than a hotelier has re-opened the hotel when it is still months away from completion. As a result the whole place looks as though a bomb has dropped, with excavators, cranes and building materials everywhere.

My advice would be to wait until next year when the place may be finished and you have read a few genuine reviews.

the reviews here were obviously written by the owners / staff....the tennis court hasn’t been used in years, it was lying in bits...

this place literally needs levelled...we nearly called in an air strike its that bad.... :S

The place looks like an old peoples sanatorium and some of the room doors are lying ajar ( upon investigation they turn out to be trashed / makeshift offices )

Blood on the wall, spatter patterns in the bathroom, umpteen stains on the roof etc made the whole experience priceless lol

The beds were clean and comfortable but don’t expect room service, breakfast in bed, mini bar, tv of any watch able standard or any other "frill"

The food is acceptable at best, microwaves and frozen oven meals a speciality,

don’t expect any drink in the hotel as the bar man didn’t even turn up when we were there after waiting for nearly an hour to get served...

If it wasn’t for the nice girl in reception I would have bulldozed the place that very night!!

We actually couldn’t face the second night there...the radiator in our family room was on full welt and couldn’t be turned off so sleep was impossible even with the door open!

If you like golf, the course does look really nice - play here and stay somewhere else...you have been warned!

GMTulfarris, General Manager at Tulfarris Hotel and Golf Resort, responded to this review, 9 August 2009
I feel it necessary to point out that while this review may have been valid in 2006 the points raised no longer apply. The hotel has been re-furbished to a very high standard since then and the more recent reveiws do tend to reflect this. I fully respect the opinions of this reviewer but would ask that potential guests bear in mind that the property described no longer exists as it has been completely and comprehensively transformed.
Best Regards,
John Caffrey, General Manager

My husband and I having had a busy week at work spent one night in total relaxation at this lovely hotel. We stayed in one of the suite rooms and were not dissapointed. The resturant was lit by candlelight, overlooking the golf course and the food and wine did not disappoint. The staff were very friendly and couldn't do enough to help with our stay. We both would go back in a minute. It is a very quiet peaceful hotel, so if your looking for some quality time with a partner, and a round of golf together the following morning this is the place for you.

Tulfarris was a great place to stay. The food is excellent and our room was great, with a fantastic four poster bed. The golf course was great, even though it was raining, we enjoyed our game thoroughly. We even managed to fit in a game of tennis. I will definitely be back.
