Positive Reviews

Ambience, relaxation, river.

The Ice House’s location on the side of the River Moy was a highlight for everyone, with the wide expanses of glass and an outdoor hot tub lending ambience, and the relaxing spa treatments also proving a treat.

Accommodating and kind team.

Guests found that the lovely staff members at this hotel were instrumental in ensuring complete relaxation on their estuary getaway.

Views and tastes combine.

The views continue in the restaurant and bar, where you will find a relaxed and tasty breakfast service, and lovely evening meals which many guests chose to partake of.

Negative Reviews

Food overpriced and overrated to a few.

While most guests very much enjoyed their dining experiences, a few found the food to be expensive and nothing particularly out of the ordinary.

Minimalist rooms stark.

This seems to come down to personal tastes, as most people found the minimal, modern design to their liking, but others noted it to be comfortable, but too stark.
