Upon arrival at the hotel we were advised our room was ready early which is always a plus. We checked in around 1pm. I was given a 20% voucher to be used in the spa which was welcomed as I was looking forward to a treatment. We headed straight there. Unfortunately we were told there were no appointments, this was disappointing as I wondered what the point of a voucher I could not use. When we went into the spa to use the facilities my foot stuck to the floor as someone had spilled juice and it was not mopped up. The chairs and covers were dated and not very clean. The refreshments were also poor. The next day I decided after going through the brochure I was handed in the spa to try book a hair appointment instead of a treatment and was told there was no hairdresser. Why have this on the brochure? I went into the town to a salon and I told the lady what had happened and she said “there was no hairdresser for some time now”. The bedroom itself was clean and spacious and there were no lack of clean towels. The bar staff, reception staff and housekeeping were friendly & attentive. Overall the view makes this hotel but it needs some updates. Dingle Skellig you are in a beautiful location and your staff are great.. please try keep on top of things and make some updates to reflect your 4 stars.

Stayed in this hotel for a wedding, room gorgeous and ...
Had to request heating to be turned on as the weather became extremely cold but it was turned off after a few hours. Became chilly during the night. Our room was situated near elevators and it was the very first room as you entered the corridor where bedrooms were located, was noisey during the night. As I can appreciate its very difficult to meet everyone's needs but the beds were the most uncomfortable beds that we had slept in. Mentioned it when checking out to receptionist but didn't seem to show much interest. Surroundings in the hotel and the bedroom very nice and breakfast was excellent etc. Staff very friendly in bar and breakfast room. Unlikely to return again as it was a expensive nights b/b.
The location is great. The rooms are a little dated. There was no safe in the room. The toiletries in the bathroom are large bottles on the wall that are refilled. Would prefer individual bottles like other hotels. Breakfast was great. There were plenty of options and they were refilled all the time. The staff were lovely. We ate in the bar one night and the food was good. The room really was a disappointment both in decor and view. We had a view of a field and a road ran past our window. Guess you need to book a higher rate to get a nice view.
