    The level of service was excellent. The Michelin-starred restaurant lived up to expectations, using local produce. The bathroom was beautiful,, overloking the sea.

    The Hotel is in an excellent location and the views breathtaking. The Staff are always at hand and very helpful. The design & comfort of the Hotel is excellent. The Bar was full and craic to be had in it and the food in the Bar was also excellent.

    The pillows were far too soft, which made it a bit uncomfortable to sleep.

    Genuine friendly staff -especially Michael the porter who made us feel at home from first moment of arrival. Room was excellent - very clean and comfortable. Food in bar was excellent. Food in restaurant was really star quality. Breakfast choice could be improved. One of the few places to which we will definitely return.

    Should have local walking & cycling booklet available. Green bin needed in bedrooms.

    Finding ones way around the hotel,Staff were great and helpful but a few more directions on the lift doors(outside) would be a big help, There are 3 lifts and if you take the wrong one you get lost.. Why not have a notice: this lift goes to xxxxx &yyyy &zzzz?

    The most beautiful location in the world, in the most amazing hotel! The food was the best I have ever had, and the staff were incredible! I am already saving up to return as soon as I can with my husband. We both had a magical time!!

    Really expensive to stay and eat there, but it was total luxury!!!

    The food in the restaurant was amazing. This is the second visit to cliff house and the food is as always a surprise. Excellent chef and deserves his star

    I would have liked an nepresso machine in the room. Most 5 stars have time.

    Receptionist was friendly,yet extremely efficient,Our room was light & airy, and the full glass wall gave a stunning view of Ardmore bay.We had flatscreen television, c.d.player,selection of free d.v.d.s and books, including their own illustrated cook book,electric iron & teamaking facilities.The bathroom was so nice we could have lived in it,with a huge freestanding bathtub and a wetroom shower. We ate one night in the bar, and it was quite good, but the breakfast was magnificent,a selection of toasts,croissants & scones,homemade preserves and perfectly cooked "full Irish".The indoor swimming pool had a view of the bay, and seaweed hotbaths are a must do.

    This was one hotel were it was almost impossible to find any faults.The bathtowels were too large and fluffy.Does this count!!
