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.

Bernie H wrote a review Jul 2021
Ennis, Ireland

A family group of 6 adults stayed here after cycling the Royal Canal Greenway from Ballymahon (39km) on the hottest day of the year. The assistant manager (Paul) accommodated our bikes and ensured we were well looked after. Each staff member we encountered from Reception to waiting staff to night porter went out of their way to ensure our stay was a pleasant one. We ate outside in the very well appointed space with lovely comfy chairs and had a lovely dinner. For starters we decided to share a loaded skins and one shared platter (for 2) - the amount of food was amazing and would have been sufficient for all six of us. For mains the battered fish got rave reviews as did the sirloin steak and burger, however if was to pick fault it was that two of us ordered medium rare steaks and unfortunately they came very well done, we nevertheless devoured every tasty morsel. Deserts were equally delicious and the wine and beers well received.
I was leaving early so unfortunately did not get to sample breakfast, however the others were all complimentary about it.
As it was the hottest day, the bedrooms were incredibly hot and so made sleep difficult ... however this is not a criticism as for the very few days of the year that happens we can bear it.
There is a limited secure carpark which is a huge advantage as street parking can be difficult.
Overall a terrific experience with great hospitality

The Greville is situated conveniently right in the center of Mullingar town.
It is an older hotel that is desperately in need of refurbishment. The windows are wood and old, if it’s windy you’ll hear them rattle and they offer no insulation against sound or weather.
The carpet on the stairs and in the bedroom should probably have been replaced a long time ago.
The bathroom is a descent size but could also do with an overhaul. If your neighbor is showering at the same time you are you can expect to experience dramatic changes in water temperature.
Breakfast is served in the carvery and depending on what time you decide to eat you will have to do battle with people who are coming in off the street to dine in too. If there’s a que and you forget something first time you’ll have to rejoin que to get whether else you need so be sure you get everything on your tray all at once.
The wifi worked downstairs but didn’t work in my room.
I think giving a 3 rating is generous and that is primarily for its great location.

We recently stayed at the Greville Arms and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The hotel retains its historic charm and is clean and comfortable. Our room was well furnished, with a good mattress. The food was very good and well priced..

Our experience was excellent so I dont understand why some guests wrote negative reviews of the hotel .Staff were friendly and helpful and the lobby, pub and restaurant are well-decorated and charming We received very good value for the price of our room, meals and drinks. .

We liked the staff as they were really friendly and courteous. Location was good.
However were kept awake until after 2 am , firstly by a loud disco at a wedding in the hotel and then by a loud altercation that seemed to be security and someone shouting outside our room, really aggressive foul language from someone, it went on until after 2am and then the noise in the street carried on until 4am with the partygoers, so if you want a peaceful stay this is probably not a good choice. Our room was clean but decor very tired, the carpet had seen better days and was stained and the hairdryer was only slightly better than standing in a breeze. All this would have been ok for a cheaper room but it cost us more than all the other hotels we stayed in on this trip and was def the worst value for money. It’s a shame as the staff are goid And the building is handsome.

Seriously guys, it’s time to prize open the wallet and give this place the investment it deserves, as the state of the hotel is embarrassing. The room was not clean when I arrived, was filled with mismatched dated furniture, a thin mattress and towels, scuffed thin walls, charity shop art, and an old carpet. It’s looks like it was last renovated during Celtic tiger (magnolia everywhere) and not had a penny spent on it since.

The breakfast was awful, and harks back to an era when Irish people rated big fat fry ups, the cheap greasy piled high kind. Nothing healthy available, (only toffee flavoured yogurts?!) seriously it’s all so 1990!

My concentration camp view just topped it all off. Avoid this place like the plague!

Avoid. outdoor dining thought of more then guests. noise at 7pm from bedroom from outdoor dining. charged 70 euro or 100 for couple for 1 night . Management need to decide if they want to make money in the outdoor dining or guests in Hotel. This is not a 3 star standard hotel. Hotel needs upgrading. carpets old. Wifi worked in 1 room but when I asked to get transfered the wifi did not work in that room. If you need to do work . avoid this Hotel.. if your young and not spending time in the room well this Hotel is for you..

Thank you for taking the time to review your recent visit to the Greville Arms Hotel. We appreciate your constructive comments. At the moment, due to government guidelines regarding Covid-19, we have outdoor dining in the back garden of the hotel. Unfortunately, the noise can affect a limited number of bedrooms. We limit noise to peoples’ conversations at their tables. We would like to have you visit our hotel in the future and have your experience be more enjoyable. Please contact me personally and hopefully you can visit us again.

My Mam and her partner met here almost 20 years ago. This weekend they returned to get married and what a truly magical experience it was from start to finish. John and Ann alongside all of the staff made organising a wedding as stress-free as possible. I genuinely cannot begin to commend them enough for their hard work, kindness and genuine excitement for my Mam and her new husband. We had a large group of family and friends of all ages, stay for the weekend and each of them sang the praises of the staff, their rooms and the quality of the food. We had the warmest of welcomes and the staff where so attentive. The hotels greatest assest are it's amazing staff - each of them went above and beyond but I must single out Ann who is just an amazing woman and has a genuine want to create amazing memories. Her thoughtfulness and care where way beyond anything we could have expected. I would highly recommend to anyone, particularly if you're looking for an intimate, relaxed family event.

This hotel is lovely very busy with restaurant rooms perfect my opinion is not just with this hotel it is with hotels in general .I am a very hard working female i live with my dad who is 89 i am a manager in a hard working environment so ìt is nice to get away to chill but i feel staff look at me because i am alone they show little attention men sit in bars they are recieved with normal welcome and chat . I worked in pubs in uk and ended up running my own pub and decided that women should feel comfortable in my pub on their own i chatted i went out of my way to make them comfortable in having a drink at the bar chatting with me and treating them with respect and not feel uncomfortable and i feel that staff should make the same effort with single women as they do with men in this stage of life we all need time out be looked after because you never know what that person is going through so just a thought for people who look at a single lady taking time out we actually deserve a little love and respect and feel we deserve that time too 😊 ❤

Apart from the hotel being a bit dated, I found it to be clean, very friendly with excellent food ad service. The hotel does need to work on a sign for their car park location. We knew it had a car park and we knew it had to be at the back of the hotel but we had to drive around twice before we found the turning but there was nothing to say that the hotel car park was there. We had lunch on arrival, dinner that night and breakfast the next morning and all the food was wonderful. The location is perfect, right in the heart of Mullingar town centre. After we had checked in (the weather wasn't great) two of our party went for a walk along the canal and myself and my mum went for a coffee in a lovely (I recommend) cafe called 'Chocolate Brown'. The next day we walked around 'Belvedere House & Gardens, a drive away South of Mullingar. I really enjoyed my stay here as did my family. You do need to bring shower gel and shampoo as these were not in the room due to Covid. And sanitizer was everywhere in the hotel including rooms.

Room Tip: Rolling of barrels at the back of the hotel woke me up early so perhaps ask for a room at the front.

We recently stayed in this hotel for a family occasion. We had three rooms,two doubles and a twin. On entering the hotel you can immediately see it needs updating.
The carpets in most areas especially on the stairs are worn and badly stained and the furnishings are tired and outdated.
Upon entering our room you could immediately smell cigarette smoke. The entire room was dated with faded worn carpet and old furnishings. All three rooms were. The TV didn't work.There was an empty pint glass on top of the safe and a dirty used earbud on the floor in the bathroom. The twin room had no tv remote and in the other double,they found old sunglasses in the drawer. The rooms are clearly not cleaned properly and we didn't check in till 3.00 pm. The bathroom is in serious need of a revamp.
The breakfast was just ok, served buffet style and walk ins are welcome so it can get quite busy. Feels more like dining in a cafe on the street.
Any staff member we met however were all friendly and courteous especially the girls at check in.
This hotel is absolutely not worth €170 a night. I have stayed at nicer hotels for a whole lot less.

The normal check in time is 3pm. To get access to rooms any earlier depends totally on how busy Hotel was the night before. I feel sure that if you call or email them they will do their very best to accommodate you. Hope you have a wonderful trip to Ireland especially if it is your first trip here. Safe travels.
