We booked this on a very short notice cheapie with BA and hoped for an OK hotel as the price was very low. What a pleasant surprise!
On arrival the hotel gives a mixed impression of a bit of a retro seventies motel throwback and a quiet tranquil hotel. We really liked the palm trees and retroness of the style as it seemed to suit our wish for a tranquil break to recover from illness.
However, tHe room, whilst not "boutique" was modern, clean, comfortable and had a brand new bathroom and TV. Plenty of sizeable mirrors, good lighting, decent hanging space and an iron. The bed was large and comfortable. A French door stepped straight onto the terrace with comfortable furniture and where the pool was, so we had the opportunity to sit outside and read or take a cuppa from our room out when the weather allowed - an added bonus we had not expected. Gardens were pleasant and there is a tennis court if you feel energetic.
The bar area is adequate and restaurant quite nice, although the evening lighting was a little gloomy and improving that to some lower level lighting would make it cosier. Improving the seating in the bar nay have encouraged us to tuck down for a brandy and game of chess after dinner. The food we ate was of a good standard and the steaks we had were well cooked and nicely presented. There was a good wine selection at very reasonable prices. Breakfast was laid as a buffet with good selections and there was more to order such as porridge if you wished. Quality of the sausages and bread could be improved and some fresh fruit like bananas would have been nice.
Overall, we really liked the relaxed ambience and the tranquility of this place. The staff were pleasant, helpful and efficient.
It is clear that this hotel is undergoing a programme of maintenance which hopefully includes the slightly grotty metal windows, and improving some of the soft furnishings, but at the deal we got we were extremely happy and as we had wanted somewhere relaxing, it fitted the bill perfectly.
It's location near yo Gorey is good, transport links excellent and we will definitely come back.
