    Superb

    The treatment from the staff. The flexibility to accomodate requests . Food was also very good.

    The price of my room was an increase on what booking. Com quoted. You offered cancellation without a fee and when I cancelled one of the two nights I had originally booked with ample notice -the rate per night went up 40 euros! If I had booked with the wedding originally I would have got it much cheaper. It was also too high a rate for a west of Ireland town .

    Breakfast was buffet style, ample freshly cooked food and good selection of cereals. Rooms were bright and clean and very comfortable. Good sized bath. Ironing facilities and hairdryers in the room. Decent sized swimming pool. The hotel is within walking distance of the centre of Ballinasloe town. All in all excellent hotel with excellent facilities. Would definitely recommend and would stay there again

    Had an absolutely fabulous stay at this hotel last Friday night. We got an excellent deal through Booked.net (€49 for a double room for one night) and were instantly upgraded to a beautiful suite when we arrived. It was spotlessly clean, very comfortable, and very quiet. The hotel food was delicious. We were extremely impressed with the staff (they had catered specially for us as we were on a vegan diet and had gone beyond the call of duty with the food they had ordered in for us which was much appreciated, and the girl on reception was extremely helpful). Definitely one of the best experiences I've ever had at a hotel.

    Nice comfortable rooms with small balconies

    Restaurant was not open during the week, because the hotel wasn't busy enough and was not available to use on Saturday night because of a party, bit disappointing as we wanted to have a nice meal with relatives. Bar food was available during the week, but very pricey, 18 euros for a burger in a bun!!! Food ok restaurant choice bit poor.

    Good

    Large, spacious, new hotel. Clean bathroom. Close proximity to town centre. Friendly, local staff. Nice linens, standard Irish breakfast buffet.

    Bedroom (Rm 123): Scuffed walls, stained lampshades, missing shelves, greasy headboards, furniture laminate was bubbling and peeling away. Generally poorly maintained room. Generally speaking, it was acceptable, but the details were being looked over. Breakfast: Poorly policed and maintained breakfast buffet. Really terrible black and white pudding. Hotel: Dirty elevator floor, stained elevator ceiling, dirty door handles, badly damaged hallway doors from catering trolleys being rammed into them. Generally, the level of cleanliness was not up to the level expected for the price we paid.

    My daughter stayed with her husband and two young children aged 2 and half and 4 months old. They had to pay €390.00 for their room for the 3days,and all the extra they had was a travel cot.She was breastfeeding the baby & the 2 1/2 year only had 1 sausage & scrambled egg for breakfast.My wife & myself paid €266.00 for our room and we were disappointed by the extra charge for two children. The dates of our stay was 15/9/12 to 18/9/12

    The bedroom was comfortable and the staff in the leisure centre were genuinely friendly.

    The hotel is very lightly staffed and under pressure as a result. Reception staff not the most helpful on arrival and even more unpleasant when leaving.The room was nice except for the cigerette butt missed by cleaning staff on the balcony and the maintenance staff failed to see the missing bath nob in the en-suite. The hotel had the feeling of a large empty airport with few staff or guests around. The food at breakfast was fair but with few staff for servce and preperation of tables left a feeling presure and disorder.

    Good

    It was nice and relasxing. But the service in the main diningroom was appalling. Not enough staff, we had a long wait to be served having requested the childrens food to be served promptly, one being autistic . The food left a lot to be desired. Ie., Peppercorn sauce on steak was just a digusting brown gravy. The caesar salad had no cheese, the prawn salad had little sauce and when requested more we had to wait at least 15 minutes In all our meal took 2hrs 15 mns Needless to say we didnt eat there the second night.

    Well situated,the swimming and apa excellent.
