Myself and serveral members of my family attended a family wedding at the hotel last week. We had dinner on Wednesday night in the bistro the meal itself was very nice but the service we got from a young lady called Sarah was second to none. She went over and above to help us nothing was too much bother to her. She is a great asset to your hotel.
At the reception itself our table was looked after by a girl called Abbie she was very young but was so professional we just couldn't get over just how good she was so helpful pleasant and a pleasure to have met you are very lucky to have her.
The night after the wedding we had dinner in the Samphire restaurant and the food was sublime we all had something different and each dish was delishious the service there was excellent also. All in all I couldn't recommend the hotel highly enough

Room Tip: We stayed in room 204 and it had a lovely view of the sea.

We booked a family room which was large, bright and immaculate. The hotel is right by the beach and has a lovely pool area with lots of floats for kids. We had difficulties accessing the internet as reception was very patchy in most areas. The breakfast was very good and food in the restaurant was tasty too although it was extremely busy as there's not much else in the area. This hotel is a good base for exploring the area but we found it a little remote as everything meant having to drive.

I stayed here with my mother and 2 sons. The hotel is in an excellent location across the road from the beach. The hotel is modern, very clean and spacious rooms. The facilities were excellent, swimming pool is definitely in the top range of hotels I've stayed in over the years. On arrival we were informed as to what events were available for the children. Breakfast was made to order, quality of food was second to none and beautifully presented. I had a slight issue on departure which was the fault of the comparison website I booked through but the staff on reception were extremely understanding and accommodating. Would definitely recommend this hotel to couples or families and will stay here again.

Stayed one night mid-week at Garryvoe Hotel, co. cork, for business meeting. On arrival, hotel looks dated from the outside but reception check in was efficient and friendly. Room on 3rd floor was adequate - decor from 1997 but functional. Room was on the front of the hotel - view was superb. Looks directly out onto the sea and coastline. Hotel appears to cater towards wedding receptions and family groups.

Dinner in restaurant that night was unexpectedly good. The service and food quality was first class. Congrats to the chef - I've had worse in hotels with 4 and 5 star ratings.

Positives: Location on sea front and amazing views. Excellent food and staff service. Great value.

Negatives: Hotel decor is dated - could do with a refresh. Cracked Bathroom tiling for example needs replacing.

Stayed: June 2017, travelled on business

My girlfriend and I stayed for one night. The receptionist and the restaurant staff were very friendly and helpful. Dinner was delicious and very reasonably priced. The room was spacious, clean and had a lovely sea view. The health centre was great - really enjoyed the outdoor hot tub. The beach directly in front of the hotel is great for walking. There is quite a lot of seaweed and stones so it doesn't look great for swimming although there were lifeguards on duty. The beautiful Ballycotton is a very short drive away

Room Tip: Ask for a sea view
