Had a very enjoyable one night stay. Hosts were very friendly and helpful throughout our stay. The breakfast was very good. I've stayed in fancy hotels and not received as good a breakfast. It's not 5stars but neither is the price. Would stay again.

Small room, but huge bathroom. In fact, the room is very tiny: we can barely walk...

The Pilgrim's Rest is literally next door to Mount Melleray, the Cistercian monastery, and was very atmospheric, and old building, but with comfortable facilities. The management was extremely helpful and the room spotless and warm. Good continental breakfast. It was super value for money and would be perfect as a base for visiting the area - the monastery, Blackwater valley,...

After a long journey, it was what I was looking for. Clean room, perfect water and air temperatures, very kind boss, good meal, relaxing atmosphere and good price. The cathedral is very close. If you are looking for something luxurious, this is not the choise, on the other hand....If you need to take a rest, that is the best option.

Would've been very good value if there was 2 or 3 people in the room.A hearty breakfast and the owners were very welcoming. I was very pleased with...
