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.

stayed at this lodge last Friday the 19th and Saturday 20th August. I can honestly say this was an amazing place to stay for €30 a night. Lovely big room en suite. Clean and comfortable. Free tea and coffee help yourself and cereals in the morning. Noel the owner was super friendly and helpful. I was able to iron a shirt and pants. Also excellent location. I'll definitely stay here again.

If you are on a tight budget, and you need a no-frills, reasonably clean place to rest your head in the middle of Ennis town, this place may be suitable. With a single room priced at 35 euro for bed and breakfast, you can't really argue with the price - 10 or 15 euro cheaper than the standard. This somewhat bizarre guesthouse is situated above some kind of pub/restaurant that is undergoing renovations - I looked through the window downstairs and saw a lot of rubble. You book a room by picking up a phone in a little hall at the side of the building, and then you are instructed to come upstairs. When I was there there were two women of moderate friendliness working there. They don't exactly roll out the red carpet, but they have a certain subdued charm. The upstairs landing is surprisingly plush with a mock victorian feel. My room was small, quite cosy with a telly, desk,ensuite shower and wc. It is not the sort of place to swing a cat, or a hamster. They have tea-making facilities down the corridor.
The bed was as lumpy as boarding school porridge, and I could not really sleep all that well. The traffic noise didn't help.
Breakfast was rather good, although the milk for the cereal appeared to be a little sour. I brought this to the attention of the woman on duty; she wasn't exactly apologetic and insisted it was fresh from the carton; but she brought me some fresh milk, nevertheless. Curiously, she seemed a lit bit more friendly after my sour milk complaint.
One of the benefits of this quirky establishment is that is near the centre of Ennis, while plusher guest houses are on the outskirts, which are not very attractive. It is only a hop, skip and a jump away from the pubs and the Old Ground hotel, where I enjoyed a fine supper. Fortified with a few pints of Guinness, you might be inclined to ignore its foibles.

My partner and I stayed in the banner lodge last night. As a guest house it is just what you need, no thrills yet still homely and welcoming. But what we found was how Helen and Noel could not do enough!! We accidentally left our passports and boarding passes in the banner lodge and Helen drove to Shannon airport just in the Nic of time! We cannot thank them enough for today!!!!

Finally a place that does not exploit single travellers! 20 euros per person for doubles, but only 25 euros for a single occupancy! Think of that! Breakfast costs 5 euros extra. This is a simple place; no frills, but has lots of character in its variety of bedroom furniture. Spotlessly clean. Friendly owner. What more could you ask for? It is bang in the centre of town too.

Just as Lonely Planet had reviewed, it's a decent room that gets the job done, but service and frills are lacking in every way. When we checked in, the lady did not introduce herself or give us any helpful tips about the city, our room, or anything. We were shown to our room, given the keys, and asked for our money up front. When we needed the internet password we went to the "reception" but no one was there so we didn't bother. It was kind of a "you're on your own" mentality. However, the room was clean, very large, and had a decent flat-screen TV. Upon check-out, the man was friendly and kind and thanked us for our business. This was also the cheapest night of our trip. All in all - you get what you pay for. It was perfectly fine. More of a hostel feel than a B&B.

We made a reservation here because of its central location. Everything in Ennis is within walking distance. The owner is very helpful. In the old Irish tradition, he has the gift of gab. He had very thoughtful comments about Britain's Brexit vote held during our stay.

The hotel itself is old and worn, but that is much of its charm. The building is filled with funky antiques. The room was immaculate. It has "continental" breakfast, but it is still all you can eat. There is plenty of variety.

The cost is so reasonable, it is a budget traveler's dream.

My wife and I were originally booked into a very expensive hotel in Ennis on a Bank Holiday so we thought we were very lucky just to get a room. We were walking around the town and came upon the Banner Lodge. We could not believe the advertised price on their sign in front of the hotel. We thought if they have a room and the price is correct we will save over 60 Euros per night. Yes, I said 60 Euros !!. I phoned the number on the sign and talked to Noel, the owner. He had one room available so we booked it immediately for 3 nights, Friday, Saturday and Monday.

After returning from Berlin my wife and I checked in on Friday afternoon. Noel was there to greet us, a very friendly and helpful owner. I am basically not a complainer so I will dwell on the positives. The room was a good size and clean. The shower pressure was good and they left us plenty of towels. There was free WiFi. The sleep quality was good with no drunks outside and the mattress was comfortable. Now a few negatives which do not overpower the positives. The walls are very thin. We could hear every word of the conversations next door including a man's high frequency snoring all night long. Noel, probably in order to save money, would only turn the heat on between 6 PM and 8 PM at which time my wife and I would throw ourselves on the radiator to thaw out. End of negatives. Another positive is its location to everything.

Now the question, would we stay there again. Yes, absolutely !! Great location, friendly owner, and wonderful price for the room. One suggestion is that Noel should increase the cost per person by 5 Euros each and turn on the heat a little longer. People will still stay there.

We just happened to randomly park in front of the Banner Lodge, hoping to find a nearby hostel or something and we saw the sign for a 20 euro stay. At first it was an odd experience, randomly calling up from a courtesy phone and not seeing a front desk person, but it turned out to be be fine. We had two bedrooms and a bathroom. The sheets seemed ok (couldn't tell for sure because they weren't white, they were blue and kinda faded from the sun and no use) and the bathroom was good. The main hallway had all these random statuettes...just a completely random place to stay. The bed was a little sunken in, but other than that, no real complaints. The guy we spoke to gave us good tips to check out around the town. Overall, a pretty good stay.

Beds in our room were so old they likely should have been replaced 10 years ago. I've done enough European travel to understand that Europeans typically have different taste in beds, and this review isn't relative to that. The beds had easily a 4" drop in the center from too many years of use. Shower didn't work properly, drains were slow.

Parking is another issue: there's a public car park across the street, and it's fine after 6PM. But you'll have to be up by 9:00 to put some euros in the pay-and-display, and it's only good for an hour at a time. Keep going back if you'd like to stay a while and check out the town - not a good way to see Ennis, which is actually a nice little town.

Then, at 10:15, there was a knock at the door to inform us that check-out was at 10:30. The woman must've walked away before we got a chance to request time to sneak in a shower before packing up and leaving. I think there was one other guest in the place, so it's not like someone else was banging down the door to get into our room that morning.

I'd recommend going to Ennis if you're in this part of Ireland, but would NOT recommend this hotel.
