Such a beautiful hotel, very unique. Everyone was extremely friendly & eager to assist in any way. They serve a hot plate for the complimentary breakfast, nice change from the continental breakfast. I would definitely recommend the hotel & the restaurant was awesome too!!

Both of us had the fish and chips. Nice light breading but lacked much taste. Breakfast was very nice. Enjoyed the way they had a plate...

Fantastic customer service from check in/greeting and offering of local attractions, maps, etc ...... comfortable clean room that was reasonably priced, in my opinion because it included a tasty, generous hot plate breakfast on the weekends. Wait staff was fast, efficient and friendly. The pub was a great place to hang and enjoy drinks and music. We did not eat...

My husband and I loved our stay at the Irish Cottage Hotel. The view of the valley was beautiful and the hotel room was very quiet and spacious. The king size bed was very comfortable. The staff was friendly and accommodating. Can't wait to return!

We came with a group of friends a found an interesting hotel with a classic old dark wood feel. The art on the walls is hard to pass by, the leather chairs in the lobby and library were comfortable and encourage sitting and talking with friends. Our room overlooked the hillside in back. Peaceful and pretty anytime. It was also...

This was one of the best hotels I have ever stayed in! The public areas where a small group of friends could sit and talk were great. The warm scones for breakfast were out of this world. The staff could not have been more friendly and accommodating.Very close to town, although it would have been a hike if you were...
