                    Superbly welcoming, excellent food and a lovely room in the garden mews. A real home from home feel in all of the many living areas in the main house, we had a great time staying here for the weekend for a wedding in the area. The grounds are also great to explore. 5*

                    The hotel is a lovely building in extensive grounds with fine gardens. The building has been adapted for hotel use with great flair and in a modern, almost minimalist idiom. It will appeal to connisseurs who appreciate an hotel that is innovative and different. Spacious public rooms with plenty of books on art and design. Beautifully quiet (although there were no children around!).

                    The staff were very courteous, willing and charming but service at dinner was a little slow.

                    Quiet , comfortable, plenty of west cork fresh air.

                    On arrival there was no water in the hot water tap which meant we could not have a shower. We reported it and the following morning there was no hot water for the shower. We reported it again hence no shower Monday evening or Tuesday morning. On Tuesday evening when we arrived back from Cape Clere still no hot water we reported it again and then the Manager checked it out and came to our room and apparently after adjusting some new pump we had hot water. A bit disappointing from that point of view and I feel we should have got a reduction in our bill because we didn't have the facility we paid for and also staff did not have to change towels or clean shower. Also the two mornings for breakfast I asked for tomatoes but they were not available couldn't understand this at all that even on the second morning they would have got some in case I asked for them again which I did but not to be had. Also I as told before I booked the place that it was only 10 mins walk from Skib. But was not told that it was a very narrow avenue and not very well lit up hence would be dangerous for walking and also no lit up footpath to the town.

                    Great place, with beautiful grounds and loverly atmosphere. Very relaxing.

                    Not enough hot water at peak times. Room 12 in lodge was noisy when people walk about upstairs.

                    The homeliness, the amazing grounds, the unique sky garden, the very helpful manager who upgraded us for a special occasion, the design of the rooms, the close proximity to Skibbereen

                    Relaxed atmosphere , main house nicely furnished , place to chill with music or a book. The walks and estate scenery were beautiful and a visit to the crater is a must !!

                  • Older travelers
                    7.4

                    Friendly staff. Comfortable room. Country House atmosphere. Extensive grounds with walks and an unusual Star Crater for star gazing (weather permitting!) Good open sitting rooms with fireplace, books, CDs. Free wifi.

                    Apart from breakfast and dinner time there were no facilities for getting a snack or coffee )apart from in room coffee facilities with no coffee). There is no bar. Dinner was average. Price of wine ok though. This place is really not a hotel but a place to stay with limited facilities.
