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.
Learn more about our review moderation.

A group of 4 friends went on a break to Clifden recently and stayed in this wonderful hotel for dinner bed and breakfast. Dinner dishes were freshly cooked for us, meeting our individual requirements. The menu was amazing for a hotel, including rack of lamb,mussels, crab, sole and prawns, beef cooked to our individual taste, and crispy duck that was the best we have ever eaten.Lovely home made hummus, gorgeous fresh vegetables and potatoes. Clearly they have an excellent chef and they also have the best customer service throughout the hotel that I have experienced in years. The town itself is also great - a super Vintage shop and high end Art Gallery were well worth a visit. We are planning our next trip already. Thank you to everyone who looked after us so well.

We had such a good experience from the start. We off work for some of Easter and would have loved a break away but everything was so expensive that we couldn’t book anything. I received a notification that the station house had an offer so phoned the hotel to get an absolutely fabulous lady on the other end, she was so helpful and had a charm/wit about her I was unstintingly taken in. So we booked an apartment for one night (I think usually there is a min stay) anyway our one night turned into two and we wished it was more. We have a love for this area so much and dream of going back every time we leave so we were in no doubt that we’d have good times. The hotel delivered over and above to make the stay such a memorable one. One thing they did that I haven’t had often was a lovely welcome pack. Consisting of a multi pack cereal for the kids, fruit, butter, homemade soda bread, milk in a glass bottle and chocolates. This was such a lovely touch. The apartment was comfortable and some updates have taken place (a few more required) having said that it was so warm and clean that I can’t fault it. The staff were so friendly and helpful at reception you wouldn’t find better, the same with the railway bar, kids club. On the most part the main restaurant staff were lovely except one lady that made me feel like we were trying to pull a fast one by saying nice and loud “do you have breakfast included in your package??” And then searching the list like I was a criminal, I felt like I was one too… I didn’t hear her asking anyone else this question.embarrassing.. food at breakfast was good. Railway bar was delicious. Staff lovely and friendly. Music was a lovely addition. Have always loved this bar for food, it didn’t disappoint. We loved it so much that we stayed an additional night. The kids loved everything about it. They really enjoyed the kids club. The girls working there were lovely. One downfall is definitely the pool. I wouldn't rate it. It needs some improvements for sure. Overall a great place for families to stay. I hope we can return. I really couldn’t get over how good the staff were.

Warm, Friendly, Clean, Good Breakfast, Central to the town, Great atmosphere, in reception area. Rooms are a bit dated on the smaller side, bathroom good size shower is lovely and hot, again a bit dated. Sockets are a disaster to plug into, they lay inches from the counter top with no room for the cable without causing a turn on the cable. So bring an adapter that will solve it. 2 bottles of water in the room was lovely, the the extra touch was the crunchy on the pillow Friday morning 🙂 a really nice gesture. Hallway fresh carpet and paint looks sharp, the lifts work speedy. Children do stay in this hotel I love children but not everyone will they play in the hallway late evening and can be disturbing for some early snoozers. I personally wasn't overly put out it's a hotel after all. I had a look in the gym it's very well equipped I didn't use the pool. Generally I loved this spot I can't wait to come back with our children for a family stay. The staff are by a long way the best I've experienced in a hotel in Ireland for years. Happy to be there and happy to help.

This place is class. Absolutely perfect for our young family. Staff are tip notch. They couldn't do enough for us. Food is delicious. The girls in the kid's club and cinema are amazing. The bar staff are too. A truly memorable holiday. We will be back. We all totally switched off and felt like it was by a mile the easiest few nights away we have ever had. Thank you all. ♡

We stayed in the hotel on a 4 night guided walks package. The hotel was excellent, everything was spotless, the dinners in the evening were delicious and each and every member of staff was lovely. John our walking guide was a mine of information. All in all a great trip.

Enjoyed 4 nights at this lovely family run hotel on a walking trip. James and his team were exceptional with hospitality, warmth, friendliness and attentive to all ones needs & requests. A choice of restaurant or bar/bistro for food and the food was excellent. Music in the bar/bistro and piano in the large comfortable foyer. Room was clean, spacious, comfortable & had everything one needed. Ideal venue for touring around Connamara. The town is just 2 mins walk from the hotel. Lots of information to hand on activities around Clifden and Connamara to do.

This was a great few days away... 3 nights in total. It was an organised coach trip from Dublin to the hotel with a stopover along the way in Galway. Aine was the girl on the coach who welcomed us on board and she is a gem. It is such a pleasure to be on the receiving end of her warmth and professionalism. As we pulled up at the hotel they literally rolled out the red carpet for us! I looked around to see where the bride was but it was for our group. Talk about making us feel special! We were served coffee, tea and hot scones ......really delicious with cream and jam. Jum Jum. Do you know it just got better and better. All the staff were so lovely and we were greeted by smiles from one and all. Unbeknown to me Aine rearranged my room to be near the lift (I'm on a crutch) Food was great Rooms excellent Price fantastic Visit to Kylemore Abbey and Pearse cottage organised day 2 and day 3. Our driver was with us for the duration and a lovely Cork man. Music in the evening (irish music with lovely flute player)

Stayed here for 1 night on a Friday when travelling into Galway City. Hotel is warm and cosy when you enter, staff are all very friendly, ladies working the desk were lovely. Room is quite basic, we stayed in the Double/Twin room, 1 large double bed and 1 single bed included, lots of space for two people. Room was very warm and no air con but could open the windows to let air in so was fine. Room was very clean. Chocolates and fruit left in room for our arrival. Breakfast was also very nice. Hotel is about a 5 min walk into the town and lots of parking on site. We didn't use the restaurant or bar but both looked nice also. We booked directly thru the website and found it to be the best deal.
