World class hotel in Paradise

Posted 27-Aug-2015
Pros: The staff here are excellent, offering a warm friendly welcome and making everyone feel special. Loved breakfast, also expresso machine in our room.
Cons: Perhaps a make-up/shaving magnifying mirror in the bathroom. Bathrobes. Iron and ironing board in wardrobe.
Location: Wonderful location overlooking the beach, sea and countryside. Surf school just outside the hotel. Great place for photography, walking or relaxing.
Attended a wedding reception here over the weekend. Our two nights stay was just not enough! As someone who travels the world with work, staying in a different hotel every week, I found Inchydoney to be right up there with the very best. A comfortable relaxing place, with excellent service and food. Wifi was available through out the hotel. Pretty, bright, clean interesting lobby area, with plenty of comfy seats. Beautiful room with stunning views, comfortable bed with fresh quality bed linen. We enjoyed the sauna and the swimming pool with the warm seawater. No smelly chemicals here. We were very impressed to read about Inchydoney's enviromental green heating and hot water system and how they care for our planet. This should be advertised more! Looking forward to visiting again soon.

Lovely hotel.

Posted 26-Aug-2015
Lovely hotel on a summers day near the beach. Bit old fashioned as far as the t.v. is concerned . We couldn't watch it because the reception was so bad and it didn't seem to have utv Ireland.

More a family resort than exclusive spa getaway

Posted 26-Aug-2015
We stayed at inchydony for three days as part of our honeymoon in mid August. The staff at the hotel were great, very attentive. The facilities were also great, my wife really enjoyed the spa. Inchydonny beach is beautiful as is the town of Clonakilty. The only negative for us was the resort was full of families with young kids, which could make breakfast and dinner in the cheaper pub bistro less relaxing than it could have been. The acoustics in the pub were bad which meant when a few of them started misbehaving it was quite intrusive. Communal areas like residents lounge and swimming pool also suffered somewhat. We still had a great time, but given the price we paid, if I had done more thorough research I would have stayed somewhere else.

Nice hotel close to the beach

Posted 31-Jul-2015
Pros: Sea views
Cons: Dusting of rooms
Location: Situated close to the beach
A couple of points...Our room was very dusty but when we pointed it out was corrected the following morning. As a vegetarian staying for 6 nights I struggled with menu options in the bar and restaurant .. Everything else was excellent ....

Great hotel in a beautiful setting.

Posted 08-Jul-2015
Pros: The setting, the friendliness of all staff,
Cons: Temperature control of the bedroom.
Location: Beech, surfing, walks, a relaxing atmosphere.
This hotel was excellent from our arrival to departure. We received an Irish Mist on arrival which was complimentary, a nice touch, our bedroom over looked the beech and was very comfortable. The food was fabulous in the bar as was breakfast each morning. All staff met you with a smile, everyone was pleasant and very helpful.

A 2 night break to celebrate our Silver Wedding.

Posted 07-Jul-2015
Pros: The Location,our beautiful sea view room and the food.
Cons: Dedicated areas for family dining and the choice of somewhere quieter and more elegant would be fitting with a hotel of this standard and location.
Location: The hotel is situated on the most stunning beach with walks for miles. The nearest town is Clonakilty which has great shopping and dining available.
Our overall experience was good but disappointing. The location of the hotel is the key selling point - it is truly breath-taking. Open views and direct access to miles of sandy beaches - the location is truly fabulous. We were unlucky with the weather and so the hotel was full of families who were staying in the adjoining apartments. From the website and details we read we had no idea that there were so many apartments. The bar area served food (which was excellent) but we found it quite small and with several high chairs and tables pushed together with families it was noisy and felt cramped. Not the dream we had of the of the magical hotel break we had been waiting for. The pool again was full with children and families in general - we didn't even attempt to use it during our stay. We felt the main restaurant lacked the ambiance of fine dining. The décor is modern, light and airy with lots of natural wood etc - more in keeping for its use for the breakfast service. We were extremely disappointed that there wasn't any entertainment at all - I know we stayed on a Monday and Tuesday but it was July - high season - and there was nothing happening in the hotel at all. There was a beautiful grand piano in the residents bar but again no one to play. Having reflected on our stay I would grade the hotel 3-4 star with the target market being families.

Great hotel and fantastic service

Posted 18-May-2015 on Hotels
Absolutely loved everything about this hotel. Fantastic location, stunning views, super-helpful and friendly staff. Breakfast was superb and we ate in both the bar and the restaurant and they were both excellent. There are also oases of calm for residents - the residents lounge and the reading room. The pool was lovely and the spa treatment I chose (an algae wrap) was great. Couldn't fault them.
