I had the opportunity to visit The Kelway at the end of March for 3 nights and I found it to be as pleasant as before! Check in and check out was extremely fast and simple. The room - one with a small balcony overlooking the sea/harbour area - was beautifully clean, towels replaced every day, mini toiletries and small coffee station topped up too. Parking is right in front of the hotel and there is a guard on duty. I had a problem with my laptop and wifi and the night clerk was so helpful that I managed to resolve my issue. Breakfast was available at a very good rate to inhouse residents and I know from before, that they are really good! When I book my next trip down to the Bay, I'll certainly make this pretty little hotel my first destination.

We stayed at the Kelway for 4 nights and it was lovely. The rooms are clean and the beds are comfortable and crisp clean linen. The staff are very welcoming and both restaurant and front office staff were very helpful with whatever we were asking or finding out about. Wifi in the rooms is strong and made for a seamless stay and no problems at all. Thanks Kelway team!

Stayed over for a Business Trip for two nights. Room is very comfortable, checking in very smooth. Close to where I needed to be for my trip. Main restaurant closed at the moment but have eaten before, very decent.

The Kelway is situated a little ways back from the beach and the decor is reminiscent of a log cabin - quite distinctive. Rated as a 4 star small hotel, the staff were very accommodating and helpful. The hotel has a lift albeit it a rather peculiar one and the bar area has a great view of the beachfront. The rooms are comfortable and our seafacing had a lovely balcony. The bathroom with shower was definitely adequate for our needs and the room also provided tea/coffee making facilities. We had booked breakfast each morning and the service and food was good. No issues at all except to mention that with COVID-19, you are served at your table with items that would usually be on a breakfast buffet - this was appreciated and shows the concern that the hotel has for the wellbeing of its guests. I would visit aggain.

We checked in just after 15:00, no welcome everything seemed like trouble, no assistance to the room as well we had to search for it. When we entered the room... It wasn't serviced yet!!!! We entered a dirty room with the bedding lying on the floor!!! We went back to reception and the Manger on duty's response was unbelievable!!! "I sorry, the lady said it was ready" we then went to the restaurant and waited for about an hour for them to come and tell us that the room is ready. Eventually we went to the room after an hour - it was ready, but needless to say we are still waiting for the Manger on duty to tell us that the room is ready...
