Driving to Ireland can be quite a long process, however having this hotel to stop off before the ferry is definitely something to look forward to. The hotel and their staff are so lovely and welcoming, always met with a happy smile and cannot do enough for you. They welcomed us and our pet dog with open arms. Once checked...

If this was the last hotel in the world I would not go there again. Nothing but tattoos and bad service, it is a disgrace to call this a 'hotel'. The food also is appalling nothing fresh just bought in badly cooked frozen food.

This little, quiet and old style hotel is conveniently located nearby the port, but honestly out of common standards. Rooms are a bit tiny, no amenities. Wifi is available, but the network is very weak and slow.The staff is very kind and attentive, breakfast is freshly prepared.

We stayed here after a very long day of travel, including the ferry over from Dublin, and found it to be just the right spot for a good night's rest. The hotel has lovely grounds and a nice restaurant, along with friendly staff. We especially enjoyed strolling around outside the next morning, enjoying the boats in the marina just across...

The hotel is very convenient for the ferry port and is a good alternative for ferry users. I found the hotel clean and the bedroom and en-suite had recently been updated and a pleasant spot to stay for the night. Nice views from the room too. The evening meal was good quality and reasonably priced. Certainly no need to leave...

The staff here are friendly and helpful, the room was clean, fresh and had a modern feel. The Bathroom was modern but the shower was temperamental but nothing major. You can tell the rooms in the hotel have all been refurbished but the doors to rooms and the bathroom have not and do look somewhat out of place but again...

My wife and I dropped in for an evening meal and found the quality of the food and service excellent, with no exceptions. So much so that we came back the next morning for breakfast, as we were in Holyhead on Business, staying in the Travelodge. We will certainly return on our next trip and strongly recommend the Boathouse. Well...

Stayed for an overnight stop, the Hotel has a decent restaurant with a good choice. There are some nice views of the Marina and some good walks nearby. There is a bar area for those that require it. The room was a good size and clean.
