This was a very last minute booking to head to Arklow for the weekend. For a coastal hotel situated in a quaint little town, i was more than happy to take the offer of €50pp B&B for the night with full access to a lovely leisure centre. Its a no brainer! Upon arrival, grant it there are kids everywhere, but a great atmosphere in this hotel. A bright and airy lobby/reception area, with i must say exceptional staff. With the help of Janna who very kindly upgraded us to a front of house room that became available, we were very happy! Had lunch in the Bistro and could not fault it. The chips in the basket a great touch! Their were many functions on in the hotel that Saturday night, and the music was pretty loud in fairness til about 12.30/1am. I can understand that this would be quite distressing for some guests staying there, but you can request a room away from these function rooms if you book in time. It didnt bother me in the slightest, we had a few jars in anyway at that stage!
I give sleep quality very good, as the beds very comfy in the room. Maybe a little suggestion to clean the over throws a little more and possibly upgrade your bathroom products to something a little higher quality.
To be fair, its probably not your ideal "quiet" weekend escape. It is a vibrant, friendly, extremely well located, clean and professional hotel that i most definitely would go back to and recommend to my friends. Thanks again to all the staff both at the hotel and Shane in the Leisure centre for making our stay a very very enjoyable one. Sean - Club Travel Dublin
