Not what we expected A review of Blue Haven Hotel
When I say "not as we expected", I mean this positively as, having read the other reviews posted on Trip Advisor, we thought we were going to the biggest dive in Ireland! However, after having spent a lovely relaxing long weekend at the Blue Haven (16-19 April 04), I can honestly say that we were not disappointed. In short, the staff were friendly and helpful, the room was welcoming, comfortable and extremely clean (excellent daily servicing), the food was good (especially the breakfast!) and the atmosphere in the bar was great (& it was packed full every night). It was a shame that the restaurant was closed due to refurbishment, but the conservatory area made a great "makeshift" restaurant environment. OK, so it's not a 5-star hotel & there may be a few little bits of "housekeeping" in terms of the decor (which incidentally it appears they are currently addressing), but we were in no way disappointed - it seems from the reviews that some people need to get real about their expectations. If you want the 5-star treatment/environment, then book a 5-star hotel!
