8,0 Excellent
Pros: My daughter, grandson and myself stayed in the hotel for one night. Everything was fine, the bed was very comfortable and the family room was perfect. The only down side was when we went for lunch, We were in the bar which was very cold and the service was extremely slow, we ordered sandwiches (no cooking) and after a half an hour, my daughter had to ask when we might eat as we needed to go to the Alliwee Caves to see Santa. The sandwiches were only so, so. The evening meal was well presented (it was also slow, but not as bad as lunch time), and it was warm which halped. The breakfast was great. We have stayed in your hotel before and will do so again, the staff are very friendly and Ballyvaughan is such a lovely village. Thank you.
Cons: Slow service at lunch time and evening meal.
