My stay was as far out of season as possible but the service was as attentive and friendly as a five-star hotel in high season. Clean, comfortable rooms, and cooked to order breakfast (have the black pudding).

Quick Stop

We only stayed one night in Heron’s Cove but I will definitely return. We were met by Rosie and Davie on our arrival which was late after a long drive in terrible weather. Their easy going and very friendly welcome was perfect and the check in was complete with no fuss whatsoever. The room was spotless and will cater for the needs of any travellers. Breakfast was plentiful with lots to choose from. Great location for anyone visiting the North West and loads to do in the area and I’ve no doubt Rosie and Davie would be happy to point anyone in the right direction. See you again soon.
