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.

From the minute we arrived to check out everything about the Hillgrove was 5 star. My friend and I wanted a relaxing night away and this hit the spot. The staff, every single one of them, were so lovely and went above and beyond to look after us. Food was amazing and the swimming pool was just lovely, as was our room. Definitely worth a visit and if I could give 10 stars out of 5 I would. Really hope to get back again soon. Thank you to everyone at hotel for looking after us.

staying tonight, the girls at the kids club were fantastic as always. our room unfortunately didn't have any hot water for the shower, we called up reception and spoke to Gaby ( hope I spelt her name right) she couldn't do enough for us, sent someone to take a look within 2 mins. They couldnt get it to work unfortunately, however she even went to the bother to change our room. The girls are a real credit to your hotel. Pool/hot tub area is great. Place is fantastic for families also. 5*

Have stayed here numerous times. It is without question the best wee kids club hotel around north of Dublin, Mayo. We have a 6 year old, and it's just the best place. Excellent club staff, all final year students who love working with kids. The leisure centre is fab, outdoor jacuzzi too. Teresa and staff are just fab. Absolutely worth a trip here. For couples too. 👌👌

We had the most wonderful time at the Hillgrove with Mum for her 80th birthday. I cannot thank you the Hillgrove team enough, the venue, facilities, food and most importantly the staff, were all fantastic and we couldn’t ask for more. We had a private room for dinner on the Sunday evening and were very well looked after and food was simply amazing. The kids club is fantastic and such a treat for both the kids and a break for the adults knowing they are entertained and well looked after. We would have no hesitation in returning and will recommend the hotel to family and friends who are looking a stay away. Please pass our kind wishes and thanks on to the whole team, we are very grateful.

Wonderful staff, great food in both the bar and the restaurant. We were all jet lagged and the porter made us tea in the middle of the night in the lobby. Wonderful service... Our kids loved the kids club and still talk about it. Great place for families.

Stayed for recent wedding . Hotel is immaculate and well presented and room we had was very big with lovely views . I have to say the staff from the moment we walked in the door were very polite , welcoming and you could tell they took pride in their work . The food was the nicest I have ever tasted at a wedding and breakfast next morning did not disappoint either . I will definitely return this time with family as there seemed to be a lot going on for kids too .
