We had a three night stay at Rathlena in May and everything was just perfect. The rooms are spotlessly clean with very good quality furniture and fittings. Breakfast was varied and excellent choice even for quests on a special diet. We will defiantly return.

Evelyn made us feel welcome from the start. The room was clean and tidy, a great size with on-suite, settee and a lovely balcony overlooking the sea. The breakfast was excellent and nice to sit with the other 2 couples chatting away first thing in the morning.
