A renowned family centre with miles of blue flag beaches and a celebrated past reflected in its historic buildings...Youghal, a scenic walled port with an undiscovered past, is situated at the mouth of the majestic river Blackwater. It is a region steeped in history, for it was here that Canon Law was first inscribed.
Location is nice, food is average and rooms are kind of OK. I think booking the sea view apartments would bring in a better experience as the view from there is awesome. Staff is friendly. Leisure center is fine. Only sad part was that movie night was cancelled on one of the nights without prior intimation. Also the kids activity was cancelled due to no many kids which is understandable.
Cold water in swimming pool ,poor dinner,great deserts,nice location and entertiment for kids
We were a family with 2 children. we stayed for 3 nights over the easter hols. we really enjoyed this hotel. The kids club and movie nights went down a treat. we had a nice meal in the restaurant, beautiful views. the room was adequate. the ladies in reception and in restaurant were very nice and always helpful. nice swimming pool area. I felt they just need a little more choice on the bar food menu overall we had a lovely stay and got a fab deal through this website.
Had a lovely stay in The Quality Hotel, Youghal. The two girls in the Reception were very friendly and went out of their way to make us feel welcome (Sandra and Sarah). We had a lovely big room with a Jacuzzi which was a great plus for us. Eileen in the restaurant was also very friendly. The location of the hotel is perfect - right on the beach. The breakfast was OK. We didn't have dinner there. We got a great deal on this hotel and will definitely be back.
enjoyed our stay In the quality hotel, while the room was very comfortable and the view spectacular, I was disappointed with the bathroom overall, the shower didn't work properly, the was insufficient towels, no hand towel.. it didn't make a huge difference to our stay as everything else was great, the food in the restaurant was top class..
The location of the hotel was amazing that is the only good thing I would have to say about the Quality Hotel in Youghal. The hotel rooms where dirty and the bed lined was stained and dirty. The food was very poor the breakfast being the worst experience. The hotel staff had an attitude towards the hotel being busy overall apart from the view it was a bad experience. We where a party of 10 celebrating a 70th birthday all booked through Lidl breaks and would book Lidl breaks quite often and this was our first bad experience. I would rate this hotel as a poor 2 star
Great Location other than that very basic. Staff in reception not great and didn't really know what they were doing. Accomodation was basic at best food very basic also, breakfast presentation left a lot to be desired. Standards here are very low. Great views though. Wouldn't go back.
Great location, friendly staff, great facilities. Room ok, in need of a little care and attention, especially the bathroom. Overall a great base for a holiday to explore the surrounding areas. Food excellent in bar but with a limited choice, breakfast was average at best. Good nightly entertainment.
Hi, we had a nice stay at the hotel, but we had a few concerns. We ate at the hotel bar on arrival and my toasted sandwich was cold and had to be returned. The chips they served were the most horrible chips we have ever seen and the few we got in the basket for the price of them. Even the kids didn't like them. The night we ate in the restaurant we asked if they had the same chips as were served in the bar and the lady said yes, why and we told her they weren't nice. She said we should mention this to the Manager as he won't listen to them, but we didn't. We had to ask on both nights for the heating to be switched on in our room as it was cold. Regards Mag.
We stayed here for Easter weekend Saturday and Sunday . Reception was lovely, very friendly, nice check in and quick. We stayed in a 2 bedroom apt, which was basic and clean but grand. The fridge door however was broken and in general the kitchen area was a bit grubby. Our 5 year old went to kids club while we went to dinner and my husband checked on him afterwards and he met him coming out the second door into the hallway, with no one watching him so we would be concerned on security . We didn't send him the second night. They didn't make it interesting and wasn't popular film. Food was nice, but nothing major. we went for food elsewhere the second night and was fabulous. The staff in breakfast / dinner area were very friendly and nice but very some seemed untrained and nervous. The area for breakfast was very slapdash and untidy, plus the food by 10.50 when we got our breakfast was cold. Nice place, this was out third time there, but they need to sharpen up their game on the basics to get the customers back.
Good points: Great food! Friendly staff. Beautiful views. Right on the beach. Excellent value. Bad points: Could hear noise from the next room. No water fountain near the sauna in the leisure centre.
Fantastic hotel. Very family orientated. Brilliant service and excellent facilities. I booked a family room but got what I can only describe as a suite. Huge. So delighted as with 2 kids u need space. Dinner was included one night in our deal. Excellent value. Great kids club also. I'll definitely be back
Stayed here last week for 2 nights and we had an amazing time, ,hotel staff were all lovely and even though I left it late to look for an extra spare bed for one of the kids, the reception staff went out of their way to supply one... the food was fab,, entertainment in the bar every night , games room, kids club, even a little shop near the car park for any little bits needed for the apartment.. I love the appartments too and the fact that you are literally 'on the beach' and a swimming pool and gym as well, made our holiday absolutely perfect,, thanks to everyone at the hotel.. we will be back.. Ann and family in Kerry.
Superb staff, fantastic kids facilities, spacious room. Unbeatable value for money.
Was excellent. But beds were really bad. In need of upgrade
Great staff, great food and great atmosphere. We'll be back!
We have just returned from a three nights stay in this hotel. We were given a two bedroom apartment eventhough I only booked a family room. This arangement worked very well for us. We have two children, 16 and 11 year old so the extra space was great. Location was good for the beach, a little further than we thought for Youghal town (5 kilometers). The hotels faclities were very good. My husband loved the gym, he has never been to a hotel with better gym equipment. The one complaint we had was no wifi. We were told everyday it was broken. Not great when you have teenagers. Food was good. Staff were ok,helpful most of the time but there seem to be abit of confusion with some of the senior members of the breakfast staff.
We had a lovely stay ,great entertainment,good food,hotel rooms were basic but spotless , for what we paid it ticked all the boxes,will definitely be back
Great hotel for families!
Myself and my family had a great time the hotel and staff were excellent. I will be booking again before the end of the summer. lots to do for the kids in the hotel. If you jumped you'd land on the beach what more can you ask for.
our one night stay at the quality hotel was a disgrace. before leaving for the hotel I rang to see what time we could check in as my baby needed a nap around lunch time I was told we could check in around 12. so we arrived at 12.30 to our room not being ready told to go wait in the bar until 1 and went back at 1 to be told room wouldnt be ready until 3pm. 3pm still no room ready! room finally ready at 3,30. baby is wrecked tired. was a horrible day so I couldn't even bring him for a walk in his buggy to get him to sleep. went up to room and requested a cot before arrival and I mentioned it twice while waiting for room from 12 to 3.30, when we went into room there was no cot, rang reception 10 minutes later the cot came up, foreign girl put it together I put my child in it and he fell to the ground because the cot was broke!!! I asked the lady that put the cot together to get me a fuvet for the cot as it was rock hard she came back with sheets to me I said I asked for pillows she said ''I speak no english'. then at 4.55pm a lovely irish girl came up and gave me a new cot and a duvet and apologised for the other lady giving me a broken cot which made my child fall through. my baby was very tired and contrary at this stage and we couldn't even go down for dinner in the bar. we were all in the room then from 5pm until the next morning. we left the hotel at 9am the following morning and we will never return back to this hotel!!
Had a lovely two night stay in the Quality Hotel. Location is excellent and it was lovely to have breakfast and then be able to walk on the beach. Apartment was really nice except for a strange smell which was ok once we opened the windows. The most impressive element in the Quality Hotel is the staff. They are fabulous - friendly, obliging. Nothing is too much trouble for them - Gold Stars to all. A. Murray
We really enjoyed our stay here and will definitely come back again. It is very family orientated and the staff are great, always enthusiastic and happy to help. The apartment was spotless and had a great view of the sea, comfortable and well appointed. Recommended.
Fantastic staff in the hotel, it is right on the beach with amazing views of the sea for breakfast and dinner brilliant value great for kids would highly recommend best weekend we have had for a long time it will be hard to beat
We arrived at the hotel & were pleasantly surprised at the Fabulous seafront location it is on the beach , all the amenities were good bar no wifi except in the hall or bar area. beautiful patio area overlooking the sea.Apart for an extremely annoying sound of either a boiler or generator humming all night & day in our room it was a great good value hotel staff helpful & curteous
Had a great time
Excellent hotel for children, great staff, food & actitives. Will be back.
Enjoyed our stay.. Staff were great.
Quality Hotel Youghal was my best holiday break after a long time. It was beyond my expectations. The friendliness of the staff; the warmth welcoming; the tidiness of the room and above all the food, a selection of items for breakfast and a choices of lunch and tea menu. The view from the restaurant was spectacular. I have recommended the hotel to many of my friends and absolutely I am coming to the hotel again and spend more days this time.
THE ROOM WE WERE ALLOCATED WAS FOR PEOPLE WITH A DISABILITY,WHICH GOT MY WIFE OF TO A BAD START,AS SHE HAD WORKED WITH PEOPLE WITH DISABIILITIES FOR QUITE A NUMBER OF YEARS BEFORE RETIRING FROM THE WORK,SO SHE DIDN,T NEED A REMINDER OF THOSE DAYS EVERY TIME SHE USED THE BATHROOM,THEN THERE WAS THE CONSTANT LOUD DRONE OF THE AIR CONDITIONING UNITS JUST OUT SIDE OUR BEDROOM WINDOW,WHICH WENT ON FROM 06.30 TO MIDNIGHT,NOW WHEN I DID COMPLAIN TO BE FAIR TO THE GIRL MANNING THE RECEPTION SHE DID OFFER ANOTHER BEDROOM,BUT ON INSPECTION OF THIS I FOUND THAT TO BE ALMOST AS BAD AS OUR PRESENT BEDROOM AS IT WAS QUITE A SMALL BEDROOM AND APPEARED TO BE QUITE CONFINING,HOWEVER I TO STAY WERE WE WHERE,PUT UP WITH THE DRONE OF THE AIR CONDITIONING UNITS,THEN WHEN I WENT FOR AN EVENING MEAL WHICH I THOUGHT WAS PART OF THE DEAL I FOUND OUT AFTER BE ASKED SEVERAL TIMES FOR THE MEAL DEAL VOUCHER,THAT I DID NOT HAVE IT AS PART OF MY BOOKING SO IT HAD TO BE PAID FOR,WITH NO MENTION OF WHAT WE HAD TO ENDURE WITH THE CONSTANT DRONE WHILE WE WERE IN THE BEDROOM,I THOUGHT THAT AS A GESTURE THEY MAY HAVE WAIVED THE COST OF THE MEAL,BUT THAT WAS NOT FORTHCOMING FROM ANYONE I WAS IN CONTACT WITH,SO I DECIDED TO END THIS 3 DAY BREAK A DAY EARLY BECAUSE OF ALL OF THE ABOVE,I HAD ALREADY PAID FOR THE FULL COST OF THE BREAK AFTER I HAD QUERIED THE MEAL VOUCHER ISSUE,AND GOT NO POSITIVE RESPONSE,SO AS I HAVE STATED I DECIDED TO END THIS BREAK,AND WE PACKED OUR BAGS AND MADE OUR WAY TO CHECK OUT AT RECEPTION,THERE WHEN I INFORMED THE RECEPTIONIST THERE WE WERE CHECKING OUT THE RESPONSE WAS,"OK THEN
brilliant holiday, lovely staff, everything we needed for our children, beach , play area , swimming pool and even bouncy castles and bubble games... totally recommend this hotel..
A most enjoyable, relaxing and affordable holiday. Our hotel room was nice, clean and had everything we needed. The bar and restaurant food was delicious and very reasonably priced. Above all, the staff surpassed their call of duty - They were friendly, accommodating and each and every staff member was very good at their job.
Great location, very friendly and helpful staff, lovely food.
July 10th Great location right on the beach with lovely views. Great for anyone who has a family ideal for them. Breakfeast was great but needs to expand on the dinner menu. I have been there before and will go back again.
A great location for anyone with kids. The hotel right on the beach. There was also swimming pool in the hotel.The rooms were clean and pretty much sound proof. The staff could not have been more helpful or friendly. Will definitely be back to stay.
Picked this hotel at random for spur of the moment overnight break and what a pleasant surprise awaited us.The hotel is situated right on the beach with great facilities.accommodation is comfortable and the food is good and all delivered by pleasant and attentive staff.Will certainly be back
Clean room, friendly staff and comprehensive breakfast choice, perfect for short stays or family breaks with the beach on the hotel's door step. Would recommend staying as long as you are aware where the hotel is located in relation to Youghal Town Centre.
enjoyable stay. breakfast lovely and fresh served up to us. good music in bar. lovely area
Just a wonderful location for anyone with kids. Hotel right on the beach with a swimming pool and gym facilities right at the hotel. Along with the kids clubs its just a great setup. The apartments are great, giving the parents some space in the evening when the kids are asleep. The staff could not have been more helpful or friendly. We will be back again next year, this time for a weeks stay.
We had a wonderful few days at The Quality Hotel in Youghal. We stayed in the 2 bed self catering apartment and would recommend it with small children. The apartment was very spacious it was nice to be able to relax in a seperate room as the kids slept. The apartment was spotlessly clean and the bed very comfortable, plenty of towels. It was wonderful to have a kitchen for light snacks for the children. The breakfast was very nice plenty to eat and loads to choose from. We ate in the bar when we arrived and whille the food was nice there was very little to choose from i felt it could have had more choice.The fact that the hotel is just on the beach is a major plus we had the best of both worlds as the weather was fabulous on Saturday the kids spent hours on the beach and finished the day in the pool. The pool was ideal so safe and spacious and again very clean. I honestly could not fault a thing staff were very friendly and very welcoming. We will be booking another stay at this hotel in the near future.Fantastic value aswell through the LIDL breaks i am tellling all my friends.
Great location,right on the beach and great facilities for kids.Upgraded to a two bed apartment at no extra charge.We had a great weekend.Staff very friendly and helpful.5th time there and will definately go back.
Really happy stay at the hotel. Lovely friendly staff. Great location. Would highly recommend, and will definitely go back.
We arrived early at the hotel got a great room with a sea view even tho hotel was very busy Never told hotel that we had our 18mth old boy with us and they immediately sorted us with a cot The new french girl on reception is in training and she is very good at what she does The breakfast was perfect great selection of hot and cold foods and breakfast staff very accomdating Dinner was great but menu needs to expand a little more all fresh tho Swimming pool very clean and ideal for familys Hotel in great location nice beach and close to fota island and trabolgan Over all great stay and will be back Conor Mayo
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. The restaurant staff were especially professional and friendly and we thoroughly enjoyed our meal. Our kids were (6 and 2) were fussed over; and it was a family friendly environment. Entertainment for the kids was provided in a cinema room. Our 6 year old caught the 7pm movie, however we did not check the movie at 9 pm was for over 12's so I would check that in the future, that was totally our error. The room was spacious, and had a tv/dvd player combi if you needed to wind down the kids in the room! The mattress could have been better, but after a day on the beach, fresh air and well fed it really didn't matter to us and the kids, but may be annoying for someone else. Breakfast was delicious with continental and hot buffet, I couldn't fault the restaurant. Check out was smooth and quick. I would return to this hotel again and would recommend to friends.
Room clean and comfortable. Staff very friendly and helpful. Meals were tasty and well presented. A very relaxing few days. J.Murphy.
as usual the quality hotel youghal was excellent. Accomadation spotless, Food excellent,leisure center facilities brillant,and right on the beach and of course the staff very helpfull and obliging.Have being taking breaks here for years and must say quality and service has never lowered its standards and not forgetting value for money.would highly recommend,brillant for families.
Very Comfortable stay Staff very friendly and helpful
I cannot say that I enjoyed my stay at this hotel. The hotel was freezing, and I don't just mean the foyet and communal areas. The room was so cold, it was hard to tell if the sheets were damp or not. I have never experienced this (ever) in any hotel I've ever stayed in. Usually hotels are too warm! I do believe that the hotel had been closed during the winter and was not long open, but we had booked in advance, so therefore they knew of our arrival. When we explained at reception, we were told there was a problem with the heating, but the thing was, the heating was actually on in the room! It was only by the time we were leaving that the room had started to warm up! We were given one of these blow heaters for the room and were told many times that we were the only ones that complained. This annoyed me, as not everyone is willing to speak up! As well as that, there seemed to be only four members of staff. The cleaning lady was also a recepionist and the two people running the bar were also cooking the dinner. The food was way below standard and we had to wait so long (because of lack of staff) which isn't an easy thing to do with two small kids! Over all, the leisure centre was where we spent most of our time (and was excellent, and clean). But when you go on holiday to a hotel, you don't expect to have to sleep in your clothes with your two kids in the bed, just to keep warm!
Two night break at mid-term - nice hotel in great location - leisure centre great and films on for kids in the evening allowing the adults to eat. Can walk into Youghal along beach in about 45 min. Very pleasant stay - we enjoyed it.
very happy ,staff very nice could not do enough for you
Very happy. Stayed in 2 bedroom apartment next to hotel. Clean well equipped, friendly staff. Good facilities. Good food at fair prices in restaurant. Would love to stay there again.
reception, room, food was lovely. the pool staff i thought could keep an eye on the pool users instead of being on the internet looking up m&m direct & you tube.
The hotel in all was fantastic just stayed the one night with two young kids,as we booked a family room it was a great room with plenty of space and kiddies cartoon's!! Bar,restaurant and reception staff were very friendly. The view's from the restaurant were fab in the evening. I'll recommend staying here!!
We stayed in the quality hotel in youghal for a few nights for our daughters first birthday, and we had a ball. The staff were very friendly, the location of the hotel is perfact as right on the beach, the room was clean and we couldnt hear any noise from the bar etc at night so our daughter slept very soundly. Perfect spot for a family holiday and we will def be making a return visit!!
the hotel is isolated with nothing around it nearest town youghal is 7km away but it does have a lot for the family only draw back was the room they put us in was at the back of reception on the ground floor next door to the gym and pool there was a lot of noise in the mornings with kids rushing into the pool area the room was freezing we asked reception to turn on the heat but they didnt we had to leave the room at 8am it was so cold. the hotel had great entertainment and bar food was nice
myself and my wife stayed over night in the hotel... it is perfect for families and staff are lovely too... food was gorgeous ..rooms very comfortable and clean... will return with our family real soon
lovely hotel.great location-overlooking the beach.Rooms large and we were lucky enough to have a balcony.Kids loved it-great spa and pool
We stayed just one night in August while touring around Co Cork. The real bonus of staying here is the location which gives immediate access to a fantastic stretch of beach and also to the surrounding area. Good value hotel and would stay here again - maybe longer next time to sample the leisure centre as well.
Myself and my husband stayed 2 nights B & B with one evening meal although location of hotel was fab because of the weather the food was not. If i was to stay again I would only go room only.
We arrived on Friday 5th on a glorious sunny evening. On reception the staff were v friendly and welcoming. The rooms are spacious with coastal views and v clean. Breakfast was great with a varied selection and fantastic view of the beach. This hotel is a great location and will definetly recommend it to any one heading to youghal in fact I already have. Thanks guys will def be back again
I took my niece aged 9yrs and my nephew aged 10yrs for a two night stay at this hotel. We had an amazing time. The facilities in the hotel perfect for kids and adults alike. We had a two bed apartment which had everything we could possibly need. The pool was fantastic and the staff extremely helpful. I couldn't fault this hotel and can't wait to return.
Excellent facilities, staff and food. Great music in the hotel bar at night. My wife and 2 girls really enjoyed t
Lovely hotel, lovel y staff, nice leisure centre, lovely view of the beach, only bad thing is they had no sky sports or setanta, get that sorted and you have a 10.
We enjoyed our stay at the Quality Hotel in June 2013. We have an 11 month old and we found the hotel family friendly. The staff were very helpful when we wanted to heat up food for the baby etc. The proximity to the beach is great, the pool was lovely, and views from the restaurant were idyllic. However we found the food could be improved greatly. The service in the restaurant was also lacking. We were waiting over an hour for our food the first night. I do think this was because new staff being trained up. Overall we did enjoy our stay and would recommend the hotel for young families.
We were very happy with the meals, location was fabulous, staff very friendly and helpful. The facilities in our apartment were great....... fridge, oven, microwave, washing machine/drier, dishwasher. Our only complaint was the bed in the main bedroom.......not the most up to date, at times expected to see the springs fly out of the mattress as you got out of bed, they twanged so much. Replacement needed badly!! Would definitely recommend the hotel to others. Also Youghal is a very interesting and scenic place to visit. Loved it. (Couple from Australia)
Stayed for 2 nights at easter ,had a great time,staff lovely,room perfect,going back fro the June weekend
We really enjoyed our stay in the hotel. I found the staff to be very plesant and helpful. Room was lovely and had a nice view. This hotel offers quite a lot for familys with children this is a great spot if the weather is good.
We stayed in 2 bedroom apartment from April 3-5th 2013. The hotel had upgraded us automatically. We were very impressed with layout of apartment. The staff were very curteous and very helpful. The breakfast menu and dinner menu were excellent and great value. You are spoilt for choice with the hotel beside the beach. It is very safe and secure.The leisure centre was very clean. The water in toddlers pool was cold for my 10month old daughter, hence we didn't stay long in pool. I would definitely recommend the hotel to anyone who has small children or teenagers. Lots of activities for them to do. Just one note to make we had asked for a travel cot. There is no cot mattress with travel cot from hotel,so you will need to bring one with you. I have a travel cot with a mattress. Overall I will be definitely going back again. Four star rating.
had a lovely 2 night stay in this hotel over easter holidays lovely hotel in a beautiful setting right on the beach,stayed in a 2 bed apartment was great everything you could need in the kitchenette,breakfast was good a bit chaotic with kids up@down to get their own breakfast probably just the time we went for it,would recommend this hotel most of the staff were helpful reception staff were great,pool was great heated pool,will definetly stay here again would be lovely in summer
We had an enjoyable Easter week-end in the Quality hotel Youghal, the staff were really nice,friendly and helpful. The food was very nice. It was a very cold week-end and at times we were cold in the hotel but if we mentioned this to the staff they turned up the heating no problem. Would be a lovely place to stay in the summer because it is by the beach.
Perfect family hotel
Really enjoyed our stay, beautiful views, very good facilities, staff helpful and friendly, will be visiting again, highly recommend.
Lovely stay with Quality Hotel Yougal.Room was very comfortable and beds very cosy.Staff were very helpful and friendly.Food in bar had good choice and hotel very child friendly.Breakfast had lots of choices . We went at mid term and a fun club was optional and also a saturday day camp.Lovely for summer with beach only a few steps from hotel. Leisure centre a must and very well run with staff friendly.Spa treatments well priced and thermal spa a must.Yougal town some lovely resataurants with some Italian options
Could not say a bad word about it, I have 2 small boy and the staff where fantastic to them. Will be going back again.
very friendly staff very quiet room food/service in the restaurant excellent - great sea views in the morning for breakfast location on the beach is superb leisure centre facilities were great all in all a great stay, would highly recommend it and would definitely stay there again!
We booked the dinner b+b for one night.....when we arrived they told us the restaurant was closed so we had to eat in the bar....i was a bit disappointed that i had to have my romantic meal in the bar with no option.....The staff were very accommadating and helpful and even though they couldnt find my booking, allowed us to check in earlier than the normal time which was a plus....we loved the pool and leisure facilities but when we arrived at the pool they told us they had no towels.....luckily for us they managed to pull them from somewhere.....We got a nice room in the hotel but we had a small problem with the water in the shower....a bit hot and cold....but it was only for one night so we didnt bother to sort...It is a lovely beach hotel and is geared for families so there will be lots of children during the holiday time...you must expect this..All in all we had a nice stay and thank you to the staff for looking after us..we will be back...i have stayed here a couple of times.
Stayed recently in the hotel's 2 bed apartment with our three children aged 10, 6 and 3. The apartment was very spacious and clean and perfect for us with two separate bedrooms and two bathrooms. We had dinner and breakfast in the hotel both of which we all enjoyed. The restaurant wasn't open but I think this was due to the time of year. There was a kiddies club that unfortunately we didn't get to use but we did use the leisure cente. Recommend this hotel for families as it caters mainly for this market. We hope to stay again.
Super stay lovely location very helpful staff great for kids accommodation was very comfortable . Breakfast was lovely and plenty of it have nothing bad to say about the quality hotel in youghal Kim Harrington
fab hotel . Staff very helpful . nothing to much bother the only mistake we made was we didnt bring our two little girls with us a fab weekend which could only have been made better with our two little ones. Keep up the good work
The Quality Hotel in Youghal was the perfect place for a night away for four girlfriends. We were upgraded free to two apartments which were very clean and comfortable. Our Breakfast and Dinner was excellent and the quality of food served was very good. Pleasant staff, especially Eileen at reception. Thanks to Lidl for a great value Diinner, Bed and Breakfast deal. We will stay here again and are telling all our friends about this great location. Margaret, Bridget, Ann and Nora.
many thanks to lidl for great value, unfortunatly after staying in the quality a number of times it has gone downhill in the food and upkeep departments
Most definitely a family hotel and I think we were the only couple there without children. Located beside the beach which is great. The walls were paper thin in the room we were staying. When the couple next door were talking, we could hear every word even though they weren't being very loud and whenever they shut their door our room shook. The bar was ok but they were out of several common drinks which was surprising given its high season and would have thought having the bar fully stocked would have been a priority. Have stayed in better 3 stars and doubt we would be back.
The staff were very plesent, but the hotell needs to improve on the quality of their food. Children were left to run around the hotell lounge unsupervised far too late. Iknow its a family hotel but eleven o clock at night is far too late to have children running around while other guests are trying to enjoy their hbreak.
Booked the Quality Hotel on the Lidl beaks. We had 2 nights bed and breakfast with dinner on each night. It was fantastic. The food was fabulous, staff very nice and the hotel what a location, wow. We will definitely do this again.
just to say that our break in the quality hotel in youghal was great the staff were very helpful and always very nice we would go back again and recommend it to our family and friends. it,s well worth a visit michael and anne behan
Very nice hotel and lovely location, staff were all 4 star, in the swimming pool and at the reception, hotel is perfect for a family vacation, didnt give 5 stars for 2 reasons, all machines in the games room are out of order and yet they are plugged in, food in the bar a little pricey for what you were getting, food wise very expensive example theres a platter for 11.99 for 2 which has just 3 onion rings on it! desserts are 5.50 and very small......
we found this hotel and area absolutly amazing, great value. we went for one nite,2 adults and 2 children for 78eu along with breakfast the nxt morning. we will definetly be goin again in the coming months, would definetly recommend it x
Very pleasant overnight stay in 2 bed apartment. Very clean and everything worked. The complex appears to be well maintained and the pool was very good. The weather for our stay wasn't great so we didn't really do justice to the magnificent beach right on our doorstep. We ate in the restaurant and were very pleased with the friendly service and very palatable meal, not to mention the fantastic views over the strand. In better weather this would be a fabulous place to spend a few days, particularly if you have young kids. We'll be back
We had a great at this hotel where we had stayed before, Staff were very friendly and welcoming. Food in restaurant was excellent. Room was comfortable with great facilities. Overall stay would get our top marks
We stayed in this hotel for 1 night and as soon as we arrived we were wishing we could stay for a week. We booked a family room and we were givien a 2 bed appartment!!! Fully equiped with microwave, dishwasher & washing machine. The staff were very friendly and the place was spotless. The heating in the appartment was on when we arrived ( mid feb so it was needed) The beach is right in front of the hotel as promised by the pictures and the 2 restaurants were overlooking the beach. The leisure complex was aslo spotless and we couldnt find any fault with this hotel!!!
Highly Recommended.Staff could not be helpful enough.A special thanks to Lucy & Therese,also to Brenda for the excellent service at breakfast. Keep up the good work folks.Hope to return again before the summer. Pat Fitzgerald.
Fantastic short break . The staff were so helpful and polite . Food good. spectacular views of the coast. Beautiful beach. Great activities for kids club/cinema etc. Clean and welcoming. Only down side the games room was outdated and mostly out of order. The leisure center was really nice and well equipped, only disappointing thing here was NO LIFEGUARD on deck duty while we were there for 4 days and u had to pay 1 euro for a towel. really enjoyed our stay and are looking forward to a return visit soon.
Was well worth the time spent booking it through Lidl website, Lidl your'e the best, thanks for making a few days away with my family some of the best I've ever had!
Myself, my husband and son (2 n Half) went for a weekend to Quality Inn Youghal, We arrived on the Friday evening....checked into our room and went for a swim with our son. We then went for some food - which i have to say was fantastic!! We thougth our room was a bit cold but considering it was early Feb this was probably normal, however we told the staff and they were quick to bring extra blankets for us, which we thought was very considerate! We visited friends on the sat and came back that evening for more food and sat in the for a while. Lovely atmosphere and staff extremely friendly! I would totally recommend this hotel for families! Right on the beach and i am sure is beautiful summer months! We will definaltely pay the hotel a visit in the future. Mr & Mrs Murray
Hotel was filthy dirty. Food horrible.
I May say the Hotel was great,everything was there in place we stayed its very ideal for a family wants to have a weekend break or in the summer time because the place was very near to the beach..We would like to go back there for a couples of days and I may say also the food they served at the restaurant was very lovely i seldom finished eating the food i ordered but that night the plate was empty,we got back to our room very fulled and satisfy.. We would like to used the LIDL break. ie more often because its really help us to save more and expend less..Thanks and God Bless always ;)
Enjoyed our Sleepover in Hotel immensely despite miserable weather.!! Food superb, staff very pleasant and efficient! Had lovely 8am. swim and de-stress in Sauna and steam room!! Lidl B & B+ Dinner Offer is definately the best value Hotel offer currently available!! Joan Wexford.
Hotel was perfect for kids family rooms were great,staff were lovely very helpfull,the only drawback was that the food wasnt great but for the price you couldnt complain,i would recommend this hotel and would return. Tara.
stayed in this hotel in one of the spacious apartments,with my husband and two children.loads of room.very comfortable.pool, gym and kiddies playarea was just around the corner,so very practical.the food in the bar was very good with lots of choices for children.overall i was very happy with this hotel.very family friendly.the beach just outside is major plus.also staff are very friendly and helpful.
Myself and my husband stayed here recently.even though it is very family orientated with lots of kids we still really enjoyed our stay.the staff are more than helpful,the hotel rooms and surroundings are very clean.the food is fantastic and to top it all you can enjoy the lovely beach while you dine and then take a stroll afterwards .will stay here again,and might even bring the kids this time
Thouroughly enjoyed our stay at the Quality Hotel Youghal! Lovely staff and fab beach location - great to be able to go down there at any time of the day. Hotel is really geared for families with loads of activities for children. Will definetely be back. Great value with Lidl breaks and will be checking out more of their online offers!
We all had a great relaxing break here everything was excellant.The hotel was brillant the staff were very friendly and helpful when we needed anything .Our apartment was lovely and clean and cosy. The pool and gym and spa were excellant.My wife and sister in law did spa treatments. We wer all very happy with the break.It is well worth the money you get loads for your money.I would rate this break a five star .Thank you for a great break.
Stayed in the 2 bed apartments in the Quality Hotel Youghal through the Lidl breaks. It was fantastic, the apartments are great, funny furnished and gives you that extra bit of room for the kids. The sea-facing apartments open out onto a green area which lead to the beach. Breakfast in the hotel is self-service and Brenda in the restaurant is a great source of local info. Loved it and will definitely be back! Another great deal from Lidl, well done!
I really enjoyed the quality hotel in youghal when we arrived we were greeted at the reception by cheerful staff our room was on the 2nd floor in the hotel there are also apartments which i cannot comment on. Our room was very comfortable a double bed and a single bed there was tea making facilites an iron and ironing board and also a tv with a cd player there was no fridge/minibar. Our stay was on a bed and breakfast and dinner package. The food in the restaurant was very good and the breakfast had a great selection for everyones needs very nice. The hotel has a leisure centre swimmig pool and gym sauna,steam room,jacuzzi and childrens pool it was very clean a great place to bring children to pass a few hours. The hotel is located directly on the beach so if the weather is good fantastic place to be and great for a nice walk the only dowsnide is that youghal town is 6km away so if you want to go out for a few drinks you will have to get a taxi. The reception rang a taxi for us as we decided to go youghal town for a couple of drinks the taxi cost 13 euro going in at about 10.30 pm this was by john lang taxis but on the way home at around 1.30am we flagged a taxi down on the street and it only cost 10 euros back. John lang taxis has a deal done with the hotel but as you can see this is not a deal! I would recommend JDs bar it has live bands excellent entertainment very enjoyable night.
We were very happy with the quality and value for money we got for this break. We were lucky as the hotel had a spare self catering sea view facing apartment which we were upgraded to for free, and we were very happy with the size and standard of the apartment. Would definitely use again
We 2 adults and 2 kids stayed for 2 nights recently at Quality In Youghal booked through Lidl Breaks. Good value, staff friendly,food good,kids loved the pool,apartment very clean and tidy. Will return again in the future.Booking through Lidl Breaks was easy and hassle free. Regards Ger Wexford
Hi I have stayed at Quality Hotel in Youghal many times and have always enjoyed my stay. The staff are so friendly and helpfull always. We went in a group of 13 , 6 adults and 7 kids. Our kids loved the pool and kids club. Lidl breaks must be the cheapest/best value on the net, so easy to book and hassle free. Very good service.
Exceptional hotel on the beach staff v friendly and helpful lovely walks on the beach and a beautiful room
what can we say but ill give the one plus point and that was the food was great the bad points was that we booked the hotel as our son is Autistic and what he loves to do is staying in hotels and swimming that's all he loves to do. But when we got to the hotel we where told the pool was closed because there was a problem with the heating over that side needless to say our son was very very upset and we had gone with friends of ours and we commented that if we had known that before we went we would have cancelled the weekend as autistic children love everything to be scheduled . Also when we got to our hotel room and we where hanging up our clothes we opened the wardrobe there where 4 empty cans of Heineken beer inside which we where disgusted with as if the the cleaners didn't take them away then they couldn't have cleaned our room. we where so disgusted we checked out after the one night even though we had booked and paid for 2 nights bed and breakfasts and dinners for the 2 night ,when we where checking out after only one night and we complained about the room being left with beer cans and the pool we where told we should have complained about it that first night even though we tried to explain we couldn't as we where trying to calm down our child after we had to tell him he couldn't use the pool ,the receptionist just said o the pool is working again this was at checkout with all our bags packed ! we got no apology and we where charged full price and told that the next time we stayed to say t to the manager and they might give us somthing off. All i can say is this was our second time staying in the quality hotel in youghal and the first time was fab we had a great time and this time it was the hotel break from hell.even if we had been only charged for the one night we stayed it would have been somthing but to be charged for the 2 nights was a disgrace and not even an apology.
Great spot and great view of the beach in Youghal would have no problem with going back again staff are friendly and food is nice also
5 star plus........... easy to book on line and excellent value for money, highly recommended!! Fab hotel and food was out of this world!! Sarah Limerick
We (2 adults and 3 children (9, 5 and 1) just spent 3 nights at the Quality Hotel Youghal. Staff are very friendly, the beach is just beside it - great view from the restaurant where breakfast is served, and there were horses to feed not far away. Great breakfast. Nice swimming pool, with baby pool, wirlpool, sauna and steam room. youghal is not too far away, just over 6km. We will definitely be back when we have a few days spare, although we probably will not be as lucky as this time, as we got an upgrade to an apartment, as all family rooms were full! Great Lidl Break.
Great staff great location for famlies Very nice friendly staff on reception and wonderful location even for older people like us as beach is so handy to hotel. Breakfast was a bit chaotic on halloween weekend there was no way you were ever going to get a hot rasher egg pud ect at the same time so there was a general run and grab the next hot dish that arrived . IT tasted good in general and its a pity to see kids waste so much
have to say that lidl breaks is most definately fantastic value and will of course use their site again to book our next break away.i travelled with my husband and our two young daughters down to the quality hotet in youghal and stayed three nights in a fantastic huge family room.we had so much fun,the staff are very friendly and helpful.rooms were spotless on arrival and cleaned every day and plenty of fresh towels were provided,very handy for when we went to the leisure centre for a swim. pub food was lovely and breakfast was great as kids were amazed with the sea view and beach right outside the door what more would you want .a big thumbs up us.we will be back.brill family hotel!
Exceptional value at a lovely friendly hotel - great for family break away. Definitely would go again.
The Quality Hotel & Leisure Centre in Youghal is just wonderful and a great location. This was our second time back there with Lidl Breaks as it offers fantastic value for money. The hotel room was spotless clean and the room was made up every day - fresh towels, etc. The food was great and the staff were very pleasant. There was entertainment in the bar on the Saturday night which was very enjoyable. We would definately use Lidl Breaks again and possibly back to the Quality Hotel in Youghal for a third time!
JUST RETURNED FROM A VERY ENJOYABLE BREAK AT THE QUALITY HOTEL IN YOUGHAL. EXCELLENT LOCATION RIGHT ON THE BEACH AND EASILY THE MOST KID-FRIENDLY HOTEL WE HAVE EVER STAYED IN. STAFF EXTREMELY FRIENDLY AND HELPFUL TO US AT ALL TIMES. LIDL BREAKS SUPER VALUE!
We had a great time in this hotel - were given a 2 bedroom apartment for the family room. First room had 2 single beds and was ensuite. Second room had a double bed. Plenty of storage. The hotel itself was nice and clean, staff very friendly. Remember this is a family orientated hotel so if you don't like loud kids then don't go to this hotel. The hotel is situated right beside the beach so you literally don't have to spend any money to enjoy yourself. The hotel is a bit hard to find if coming through Youghal so you are better off going down the motorway and turning off on the Rosslare Road if coming from Dublin direction.
Also what was brilliant was the fact that the TV in the room was also a DVD player, so I would recommend you bring DVDs with you (we did) for the rainy days! And bring plenty of swimsuits for the leisure centre... only bad note, was the tap water wasn't good at all, so for drinking bring your own water! But loverly, just loverly!
LOVED IT... every minute! The room was absolutely spotless; the staff were just the most friendly I've ever come across - they couldn't do enough for us. I went with my son & nephew (teenagers) just for 2 days before they go back to school; there was one day of rain but it was ok because the boys just had fun in the leisure centre with the gym, pool etc, which again was so clean! The food in the hotel was wonderful and so reasonably priced. The beach was right outside the door as was a lovely sitting area (where I resided with a book for most of the day) bliss! All in all, a family orientated hotel, with friendly staff & a wonderful safe & clean atmosphere! Not your typical chain hotel at all! I would recommend it, no problem, & will definitely go back, again & again...
Just back from a Lidl break in the quality hotel Youghal,the lidl breaks are excellent value for money the hotel was reaaly nice loved the location and the service in the hotel was brilliant very suitable for kids, could not find a fault.
really enjoyed our stay in this hotel staff very helpful and it was an ideal spot for children apartments very spacious very good value through lidl breaks
Excellent venue for a break, Rooms are spacious and beds are comfortable. Staff are very friendly Great food and the view from the restaurant is superb. Right next to the beach. Leisure centre is excellent and available to hotel guests. Will be going back soon.
great hotel, 2 bed apartment great value, will go again. thanks orla
great value lovely family break.my 5 year old loved every minute of it .meeting new friends.bar food outstand and good value.
My husband, myself and our 20 month daughter stayed here last April. We will definately be back. When we arrived we were given a goodie bag for the baby. i t was brilliant, it had colouring crayons and a book in it which kept her amused in the evenings when we were in the restaurant. The staff were really friendly and spoke to us on first name terms which made us feel really welcome. The food was great too. When we were booking we booked a family room when we arrived it was actually a 2 bed appartment, The accomodation was brilliant and very comfortable. This is a lovely hotel to stay in and it is right along the beach and yet not too far from the town of Youghal. i would recommend Lidl breaks to all my friends and I have been telling them all about them, they are unbelievable value for money with great hotels on offer, I definately will be taking another one again.
Staff very friendly and helpful. Kddies club was excellent. Right on the beach and the weather was fantastic. Would highly recommend it for families.
Had a lovely time in Red Barn at the Quality Hotel and Leisure Centre, fantastic beach, great Leisure Centre, Staff very friendly and efficient, food great especially breakfast, would recemmond to anybody especially families, only down side was not told when booking that there was a booking fee of app. %u20AC25.00 on top of cost per night. Ita M.
I actually cancelled my trip but the people I dealt with were very friendly and professional.
we stayed in a holiday home and it was clean, tidy and plenty of towels. the food could be better and the menu choice for children could be extended. directions on how to use the appliances would have been helpful. the mattresses were really hard and i was delighted to be going home to my own bed
I found the 2 bedroom apartments v suitable for 2 kids and 2 adults. Location of hotel is excellent. Quality of food was good . Standards of cleanliness were good and staff were courteous at all times.
The hotel was lovely, we were put into an apartment which gave us plenty of space. The leisure centre was great but there was no shallow end in the pool! Staff were very friendly, helpful and excellent. The restaurant was nice and everyone was catered for. Strongly recommended especially for families.
nice apartment, v late check in when only staying a day
really enjoyed the stay , chilldren loved it as it was so near beach, would stay again. Games room could be better , machines not working took all the kids money.
Very suited to children had a lovely stay one adult a two year old and an eleven year old food super staff lovely through out from leisure staff to porters ,accomadation, reception, bar and waitress ect could`nt do enough for us will stay again booked 2 bed apartment was perfect. Facilities 5 star for children, pool clean and water at a nice temp. Thank you so much
We stayed in the Quality Hotel in Youghal at Easter. We had two teenage boys with us and there is always the problem of entertaining them, but not here! The hotel is situated right on the beach, which is fantastic. We had lovely weather, so the beach was enjoyed. The pool was the other amenity we were glad of. We ate in the restaurant and the beef had to be the best I've tasted in a long time. Service was excellent, all staff were very helpful and pleasant. We enjoyed music in the bar later and met some very nice people. The hotel is really family friendly and I thoroughly recommend it.
Really enjoyed the weekend. Great value and a great venue. Would do it again.
Hi Stayed in Quality Hotel youghal recently on lidl break.Hotel / food smashing, staff were brill . My dgt and 4 month old gran-son were with me, they gave us 2 bed apt because we needed fridge for babie's bottles. So well done to all Mai / Mgt Sheedy and baby jake
Our stay was great rooms where clean restaurant food was perfect the steak was the best i ever had.
By Daniel Nugent. My mother took me to the hotel in Youghal on the 9th of June 2010 to celebrate my completion of a law degree. The hotel was faboulous, the room was great very spacious and comfortable. The bar entertainment was good for the older person not so much for a young adult. however the experience was ruined by the simple fact that the restaraunt was dismal. The staff were good and welcoming bar one. The menu was mediocre and disappointing. My mother had the sea food chowder but it was lumps of salmon dipped in ruiny soup and a disgrace. For the main course she had breaded lamb cutlets which in fact was mutton dressed as lamb and unedible, I had the plaice (which was the only fish on the menu for a seaside hotel) and it was the driest and blandest fish I have ever tasted. If anyone is going I would recommend that they stay clear of the restaraunt and attend the bar. Further disappointing was the fact that after complaining to the manager did not follow the complaint up with us and after attempts to contact the hotel for an explanation we have recieved no correspondence. Apart form the food the hotel was a very good one with fine facilities and great accomadation.
We went to this hotel with our 3 year old son. The hotel was in a fab location - right on the beach. We were lucky and had beautiful weather. Facilities were good for children 4+ - for my little boy we had a small playground and swimming pool (and the beach of course). But not much else. There was a creche there that you could book 24 hours ahead (for under 4's) - however it was closed wen we were there (end June). We asked if it was possible for him to go in and play there (supervised by ourselves) and were told no by the person on reception in club vitae :0( There was kids entertainment organised in the evening but again this didn't start til after 9 at nite and wasn't suitable for a 3 yr old. The food there was lovely - ate in the dining room the first night (beautiful room looking out on the beach) and the bar next night (the bar menu was nicer). The whole place is really child friendly so a definite recommendation for families. The room was nice and big as well. The only real disadvantage i could see of the place was the necessity to drive to do anythin other than lie on the beach or have a drink in the bar. Having said that I would definitely go back there again as we had a great weekend.
Stayed here in early April. The apartment was lovely, as was the leisure centre. Breakfast in the restaurant was very good but the dinners were a little disappointing - same menu every night and while the food passed as your average 'hotel food' the quality did not reflect the prices charged. If we returned we would opt for self-catering or bed and breakfast only. On the whole though a very pleasant stay.
