Accommodation at the Mount Irvine Bay Resort comprises of 80 rooms in four categories: Standard, Superior, Suites and Garden Cottages.
Ramps have been installed throughout the property, so access for wheelchair users or those with mobility problems should not be an issue. Wheelchair accessible rooms are available, and the hotel also offers a disabled suite furnished with mobility bed and disability-equipped bathroom.
Inter-connecting doors separate most rooms and cottages, enabling dual units to be reserved by families, etc.
Standard & Superior Rooms
The Standard and Superior rooms are in the main accommodation wings of the hotel. Every room has a private balcony or patio. Rooms on the upper floor have scenic sea views or look out over the pool or gardens. Ground floor rooms offer garden views.
The Standard rooms are semi-refurbished. The Superior rooms have been fully refurbished and so are much more modern and stylish in appearance and benefit from upgraded fixtures and fittings.
Regardless of category, the room are spacious, fully air-conditioned and furnished with either twin double beds or a single king-size bed, a desk, in-room safe, cable TV, Wi-Fi (variable strength signal), hairdryer, tea and coffee station, plus an iron and ironing board.
Superior Rooms are additionally equipped with a mini-fridge and USB charging ports in the bedside lamps.
Rooms are serviced daily. All linen and towels (including pool/beach towels) were of excellent quality. Laundry and room services are available.
In addition to the regular rooms, the hotel offers one and two-bedroom Suites. These are basically Superior rooms with interconnecting doors leading to a second/third Superior room furnished with a sofa and chairs instead of a bed. One-bedroom suites have a king-size bed, whilst two-bedroom suites have the king size bed plus two double beds.
The Garden Cottages are housed in small semi-detached/duplex cottages dotted around the attractively landscaped 16-acre grounds of the hotel. Each cottage has an inter-connecting door, so can be booked as a two-bedroom unit if required.
The cottages are more spacious than the Superior rooms or Suites. They are furnished and equipped to the same high standards, but with the added facility of a wet bar. We loved the décor of all the rooms, and the Garden Cottages in particular. Our only slight criticism would be the absence of pictures or paintings, which would have given the rooms a more homely feel.
Most of the cottages have been completely refurbished since our last visit. The upgraded cottages have an enclosed patio. Furnished with a sofa and chairs, glazed sliding doors separate this charming area from the bedroom. The hotel still offers a few 'standard' Garden Cottages with an open (but covered) patio area.
