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.

Myself and My PArtner stayed here for 2 nights and what a fantastic break it was, The rooms where lovely and the staff are a credit to the place, Every single one of them where fabulous from the moment we checked in to the bar and restaurant to checking out. We booked into the pottery restaurant and the food was lovely, All three courses where beautiful. The breakfast in the same restaurant the next morning was also lovely from cereal to hot food. The showers in the rooms have great water pressure and easy to use. Would definitely come again.

We arrived at the middle of the night with no booking and under certain pressure- manager of the place made this absolutely unexpected trip in to wonderful experiance. Hotel is amazing, views are fabulous, everything is clean, food is tasty, in room all is very well-considered. Can't recomend enough. 10 out of 10

We would recommend the arklow bay hotel to anyone who is looking to have a fabulous wedding. We got in contact with the hotel just 6 weeks before our wedding date asking if they could facilitate us. They had a wedding showcase on that date but kindly brought that day forward so that they could host our wedding. We met with Sinead the sales manager there who was extremely patient and kind, because I am visually impaired she took alot of time to guide me around two different size rooms and explain the possible layouts. Sinead Sat down with my husband and I for coffee and went through all our options and even adapted a few packages to meet our needs and budget. Soon after we met with the wedding coordinate Danté who is every bit as professional and friendly as Sinead. Having Danté take care of everything took away all of the usual wedding stresses so I just had to concentrate on my dress. Head chef Àine did a fabulous job with the meal. Four months later our guests are still talking about how beautiful the food was. The waiting and bar staff were fantastic. Colm and Niamh were so attentive and felt like part of the family. Our guests still say they knew it was the best wedding when they saw the bar staff (Joe and Ciara) dancing all night between pulling pints. All our guests said it was the best wedding they have been to. They like us cannot praise the hotel and its staff enough. From the moment I walked out of the hotel in my wedding dress down to the garden to meet my husband and guests right through to going to the stunning bridal sweet everything just went so perfectly, like a dream.

It's been a while since I have attended a Wedding Reception at the Arklow Bay Hotel and WOW! It was brilliant from start to finish. A lovely welcome reception, meal was superb! Soup was so hot and it was delicious. Everyone attending had such compliments for the meal and staff. They couldn't have done more for us. The function room has had a refurb and looks great! Would highly recommend it for a wedding.

Stayed in Arklow Bay Hotel recently for a winter break. Staff were courteous and friendly at all times. However, the manager made us feel unwelcome, his manner towards us was unprofessional in my opinion. The main restaurant was closed for the evening meal so we were directed to the lounge where we were given a menu and ordered our meal from it. It seems there was another menu that we should have asked for but, how could we when we didn’t know about it. This set the manager into a tizzy. He continued repeatedly to question us as to how this happened, we calmly continued to reply that we didn’t know. He implied that it was our responsibility to know. It left a sour taste, we won’t be going back anytime soon, if ever.

I stayed at the Arklow Bay Hotel for 2 nights along with my sister and brother for a 2 night break. Everything was lovely at the hotel and we enjoyed our stay apart from one episode. We had booked a mid-week deal which included dinner and breakfast. on checking in at reception, my sister confirmed this, and we booked our table for dinner at 6pm that evening. All the people we spoke to at Reception were very friendly and welcoming. At 5pm that evening we had a drink at the bar and then went to the restaurant at around 6.10pm. The restaurant was closed so my sister went to reception to enquire about our meal. The receptionist told us that we could eat at the bar. The staff at the bar were very friendly and gave us our menu. My brother went up to the bar with his room number ready to order our meal. He was told that they would look after that later. So he ordered our 3 meals, and we ate at the bar area. When paying for our drinks, the bill had the dinner included so we told them that we were on a deal that included our meals. The Manager was called and approached us. We were at a loss as to what the problem was. The Manager did nothing to clearly explain the situation, and made us feel like we had done something wrong. We explained to him what we had done, however this did not make any difference to his manner and tone in speaking with us. We were unclear and still are, as to what we should have done differently. We even offered to pay any difference but this also made no difference to him. It was a very uncomfortable situation and unfortunately this has put us off staying at the hotel again as we do not wish to encounter him again.

This has got to be one of the friendliest hotels we have ever stayed in. Great size twin bedroom, with very comfortable beds. The staff were so helpful to accommodate my daughter with a gluten free breakfast each morning, cooked fresh to order. The granola was one of the tastiest I have ever had. We also had bar food one of the nights, which was delicious. The Korean chicken wings were so good and the fish & chips too. Everyone was so friendly and helpful, which was so nice to see. Added bonus of having use of the leisure centre on site was great too!
