Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Cancelled stay with no explanation when I rang was basically told tough. My kids and myself were looking forward to the break away and struggled to find somewhere last minute as I had booked this 9 months ago and was cancelled 2 weeks before my stay. Not good enough you have to remember your loyal customers and not your greed, the government won't help your business to recover a year from now. I have already seen the hotel on a boycott list on Facebook. Won't be returning as I've found a lovely bed and breakfast in the area who value and appreciate people's custom.

Never again! I booked the Easter deal at the Auburn Lodge and was delighted at the price and already written reviews from people who had stayed there. We could not wait to go and enjoy the hotel. That did not last long. I got a telephone call from one of the receptionists informing me that my booking was being cancelled as the hotel were now putting up other people whom they were getting more money from. I won't go into detail but I will never consider booking this hotel again. Not even an alternate date or sincere apology. I asked if a manager could ring me back then proceeded to ring a further four times requesting a conversation with the manager. I am still waiting. Stay clear! A stressful and regrettable episode. It will never be repeated,

Lunch for three in the bar. Place was spotless and the lady that served us pleasant and chatty. Menu relatively good. Could not fault any of the three main courses and deserts we had . All were very good. Despite living locally I had not ate here in many years, I will definitely eat here more regularly, and am happy to recommend to people.

Myself and my partner went away for the weekend. We had a long drive and were looking forward to a nice meal together. We arrived to the bar to eat as you could imagine it's mid term the bar was busy I anticipated that as I have my own children who didn't travel with me .We eventually got a table for two ,I had to ask twice for the table to be cleaned as it was sticky so sticky the beermats were sticking to the table. My partner ordered chicken and mushrooms vol au vent myself order veg and potatoes as I'm vegetarian,which was a bit pricey considering the portion .Tphe vol au vents and potatoes and veg came out to us swiftly but cold .I actually tasted the sauce in the middle of the vol au vents it wasn't even warm. I asked for extra gravy to try and warm up my food potatoes and vegetables. My partner ate his as we were on the road all day I didn't and couldn't finish mine as I was disappointed to say the least that veg and potatoes couldn't come out hot .We are staying till Sunday and I hope and pray the breakfast for the next two mornings is some bit hot as this is our second time staying here .To say we are disappointed is an understatement.

I am totally ashamed of the attitude of the Deputy manager towards the housekeeping staff. I am a member of the HSE and observed and recorded this. These people are so short staffed. He has a serious problem with his controlling issues known as Coercive control. I have a video of him shouting at the girls and actually told them he didn't care if they all left. He cursed at them as well. This man's name is Chris and it would be in the general managers interest to get rid of him before he causes serious problems for those girls.

Popped in to this hotel for Sunday lunch with my sister. Receptionist not overly friendly. Fairly quiet in the bar. Basic lunch menu, nothing too fancy but has something for everybody. We didn't have high expectations going in but were pleasantly surprised. The food was absolutely fabulous. Fresh, good quality food. We ordered the Asian curry and Alfredo mushroom pasta - both were superb dishes and decent portion sizes. Will return again. However, the receptionist did not lift her head up on our way out to thank us for our custom. Simple pleasantries go a long way.

Booked a weekend stay here as a base to travel around Clare and was very pleasantly surprised with the whole package. The room was very clean and spacious, the pool, sauna, steam room and jacuzzi are very modern and immaculately clean and plenty of attentive staff on duty. The bar is well staffed, does lovely food and has the big screen for any sports events. We ate in the bar one night and in the hotel restaurant the next night, the staff in the restaurant are really chatty and friendly and know all about the food and wine they are serving. The quality and presentation of the food is exceptional. We were so impressed with this great value for money hotel that we gave friends a gift of a weekend stay here and they enjoyed it as much as we did. We stayed in March 2020 just before lockdown and we were just so lucky we got the break in when we did. We're looking forward to our return visit soon.
