The galmont is a total experience, from the ease of booking ,checking in and the whole spa treatments available the staff make your break away totally relaxing. We had a sea view room and it was fab. Breakfast was great with plenty of choices and the evening meals were top class and again the staff made sure everything was to your liking. Would recommend for any breakaway days.
We had a fantastic time here. The food, all the facilities and the wonderful staff were all helpful and friendly. Special thanks to Chloe at the Spa and Jared in the restaurant. The rooms were beautiful and so was the view. We will be back again.
Clodagh the front office manager was so helpful, kind and an absolute credit to our stay. The gentleman who checked us in was lovely. The room was gorgeous and so comfy with fantastic views of Lough Aralia. We availed of the thermal room in the spa which was so relaxing. The outdoor hot tub was an extra bonus to enjoy, even if it was raining the first day we went into it. The breakfast was so fresh and had so much to offer. Parking facilities were easy to access and the hotel being so central allowed us to leave the car there and venture into the town. We didn't eat in the bar but took advantage of the cocktails in the bar one evening which were nice. Each member of staff that we encountered were very pleasant to us. Overall 10/10. Will definitely return!
Had my daughter's christening in the Galmont Hotel on Sat. We had such a great day. It was the attentive staff that really made the day so memorable for us. We had amazing views of Lough Atalia from where we were sitting. We opted for the set menu of 3 courses which had good variation of options. Everyone commented on how lovely the food was & everyone was too full at the end of the meal for cake! It was really great value that I would definitely go there for a family occasion again. We had plenty of space & after the meal we went out to the foyer to relax. The outdoor terrace is amazing too for a refreshing drink. I would definitely recommend the Galmont Hotel for a family event :)
This was a 2 night B&B, 1 dinner included package in an Executive Room. With a barfood meal on the other night, one bottle of wine, and no other drinks or extras, it cost € 1,000 and for that money it was very disappointing. The room was fine, but there were two maintenance issues that were not sorted (light not working, safe not working). Breakfast in bed never arrived, and I found that the card I left on the door at 10 pm the previous night had not even been collected. In the restaurant, the buffet breakfast was of mediocre quality (eg tinned fruit in fruit salad), and it was stone cold, on stone cold plates. We sent it back, and started the day with just a slice of toast. The hotel deducted the cost from our bill. The next day's breakfast was fine, because we insisted on having it cooked fresh. Dinner the first night was in the bar (pasta for one, pizza for one), followed by apple pie, and everything was excellent, and good value. The "posh" dinner the following night was also very good, and all the IRISH waiting staff were very friendly and helpful. But the hotel has plenty of non-Irish staff, none of whom have more than a slim grasp of English. One could not understand what a tomato was, and told us there were none in the hotel ! Another did not understand when I asked for the location of the vending machine, and another in the dining room did not understand was toast was. Very "Manuel" in Faulty Towers. Disabled facilities were dreadful. The only "accessible" toilet on the ground floor does not have enough room to turn a wheelchair, and my wife was stuck in it, unable to turn to get to the door. Luckily she had her phone to call for help. Worst of all, the disabled parking spaces are so small and so badly located right up against a wall, that the passenger side door of a car cannot be opened AT ALL. Surely this couldn't be passed by the authorities ? Toiletries in the bedroom were few and far between. No shampoo, just one "hair and body wash", and one conditioner. No body lotion, no scented water. There were dispensers in the shower, but that might be acceptable in a budget Holiday Inn or similar, but not in a top room costing this sort of money. Similar situation with tea and coffee facilities. Two types of coffee pods, but no description. One teabag of Irish breakfast tea, and a couple of peppermint and camomile. No biscuits other than a couple of the little sweet coffee crackers. I mentioned all this to reception, and the answer I got was "I know, I get this complaint all the time." We really really wanted to enjoy this stay, and in many ways we did, but when a hotel charges €1,000 for two nights, one 3 course meal, one one bar snack meal, and two sandwiches, they need to seriously up their game from this level of service. When it came time to leave, one of the two main lifts was out of order, and the lift to the underground car park was also broken. A manager directed me to the stairs, but there was no offer to assist with our luggage. If the price of the stay was half what we paid, I would regard it as just about acceptable, on the basis that you get what you pay for, but in this case, we most certainly did not get what we paid for. Management here needs to understand that there is a lot of strong competition out there. The hotel was very busy, with American tour buses, and several corporate gatherings, which was great to see, but if they want to compete at the upper end of the leisure market they have a lot of work to do.…
