            Like a long cool drink on a hot day.Into the cool, cool water of the pool and a refreshing drink from the bar after a long very hot drive. The staff were very welcoming and friendly. We were upgraded to a larger room as there were only a few guests at this time. Breakfast was generous and tasty. I think there are better places to eat in Barrydale for dinner and better value, so next time I’ll be venturing out. The decor is quirky and fun.

            Be AwareWe arrived with full expectations, that were met by the reception staff. After negotiating steep ladder like stairs (think of old ships) we went into room 12 with its ‘in-the-room’ shower but the toilet was enclosed. The room TV and remotes were in place but are apparently turned off as it is the down-season ( private information) Following a good evening meal in the bar/restaurant we retired at 10.30 pm. Room 12 is directly over the ‘boom boom’ music room and even if we had been watching TV it would truly have been impossible to hear it, we even resorted to shouting to each other across the bed! 3 nights had been booked and paid for, we left after 1! Despite all, the staff and general ambience was very good.

            Staff make the difference We stayed for two nights and had two different rooms as the first was a bit small, although it had a nice balcony to catch the breeze. We also ate in the restaurant both nights and had breakfast both mornings - food presentation and quantity was excellent. There's a large pool in the well maintained gardens. The hotel layout is a bit quirky but it worked for us - there's also local art on the walls for sale. All staff were really friendly and went out of their way to ensure our stay was comfortable and hassle free - even doing our laundry. We'd be more than happy to return.

            The town of Barrydale las little to offer except a few interesting Resturants and coffee shops and of course the hotel. It is old but beautifully decorated. Our bedroom was enormous and so stylish. We ate dinner in the hotel Resturant- the food was good and the service outstanding. The waiter help select an excellent bottle of wine. We really enjoyed our stay.

            Firstly the staff are very very good at making one feel at home. The fact that the rooms are all different makes it feel less like a hotel. The fact that we stayed in the hub of the village.

            I loved staying at the hotel and after it being my second time there I will definately stay there on my next visit.
