When you stay in Dingle, guests say you must visit the beautiful harbour and enjoy the delicious, fresh seafood.

Negative Reviews

Hotel Has a Dated Feel

This hotel feels very outdated. Many guests say there is a damp, musty smell form the moment you walk through the door. Overall, the facility feels unclean, and guests feel that it doesn't meet their expectations of cleanliness. Other issues, such as pet hair covering the stairs, bedding in poor condition, and curtains hanging off the rails in rooms, make guests feel like attention to detail is not taken seriously.

Facility Feels Like You're Imposing

Rooms and en suites are quite small at this hotel. The cupboards are filled with the owners' belongings and small comforts like bedside tables are missing, which makes the entire stay feel less like a cosy getaway and more like you're imposing on someone's home.

Breakfast Leaves Guests Wanting More

Many guests describe breakfast as less than average with limited offerings. Porridge, sausage, and scrambled eggs appear to be the mainstays on the menu.
