Great location overlooking Loch Ard. Had room with a view which had everything needed for your stay. We booked half board through Expedia but was told by reception that we only had a £25 allocation. We said that we had booked half board and expected a full dinner. After discussion and realising that Expedia had not been informed our half board was honoured as were others who had experienced the same situation. Food in main restaurant was delicious and restaurant manager very friendly and efficient as were all the restaurant staff.
