From check in to check out every single member of staff was gracious and friendly. They genuinely seem to care that you are comfortable and enjoying yourself. The room was old fashioned with a couple of minor maintenance issues needed in the bathroom (replacement grout, loose bath taps) but the bed was so comfortable we didn't want to get up...

We arrived in Skibbereen after a long drive from the West Coast. The check in was so helpful especially with the parking of our large family van.

Friendly and quick check in. The public areas are very well appointed and a very nice bar with excellent service (can eat either in the bar or the restaurant from the same menu). Even the owner checked with us a few times that all was ok.

Stayed one night only and wish it could have been longer. Check in was quick and efficient. Staff friendly and helpful. Our room on the second floor was newly renovated and was gorgeous. Large room with very comfortable bed, tv, view over the river, tea/coffee making facilities. Bathroom was huge with bath and fabulous wetroom style rainfall shower. Nice Toiletries....

This hotel would get a 5 rating if it invested in maintenance of their rooms some more. Although clean you can clearly see the rooms need some tlc. Dining areas of the hotel were excellent however. Staff were friendly and helpful.
