Stayed here for one night in March. Room was large, clean and beds very comfortable. Reception were welcoming and helpful. Barford was food and bar was nice and large giving you plenty of space. Bar was well stocked with good range of beers. Breakfast was good and tasty. I would recommend this for a couples or family break and also... More

Having visited and stayed here on a number of occasions, I am always pleased with the standards here. Lovely location on the promenade on Salthill, and lovely views if you have a sea view room. Staff could do with a little bit of training in pleasantries - although it is a busy hotel, an odd smile and pleasantry for the... More

The room was spacious and comfortable. There was a balcony but it was locked, which was a shame. Hotel faces right out onto promenade offering wonderful views. Very easy to find and short distance from the center.

Stayed in July 2015 for one night. Fantastic view of the sea from our room! Best thing about the hotel to be honest! Reception are a bit surly, could smile a bit more! The button for the lift looks a bit iffy and makes you worry about taking the lift. The room was fine but please could you clean the... More

We were disappointed with this hotel even while staying in an upgraded Ocean View King Room. Amazing view; but the room lacked very basic amenities that you would expect in all hotels. They didn't give bars of soap, or any hand soap for that matter so you are stuck using your shampoo. Also, no safe or mini fridge in the... More

I had dinner here with family and the staff were great. The food was good but the portions could have been bigger. They have recently taken on an Italian style menu which is nice but is clearly catered towards tourists rather than locals looking for food. It was expensive but it is a high standard restaurant.

From the minute we booked our wedding with the Salthill hotel they were amazing to deal with. The staff were so nice and accommodating every step of the way, so a big thank you to all of them esp. Pauline, Kerry and John. The tasting was amazing and it was so nice to be able to bring some of your... More

I was at a wedding last month in the Salthill hotel. It was a lovely day thanks to a great service. A big shout to the duty manager to made sure everybody was at ease and were more than ok for food and drink. The service was timeless and effortless.

Arrived at the car park and found lots of spaces and then reception was excellent except that they didnt process the pre-authorisation of my card properly.(which was later fixed by a waiter in the bar) Room service was excellent and quick. Bar meals we OK but could do with a bigger choice. Rooms were excellent (we had a twin and... More

Great breakfast buffet--lots of fruit! Plenty of breads,too--croissants, rolls, Irish bread. Homemade jams and don't forget scones! We enjoyed 2 nights in the bar, listening to music, watching the dancers. Comfy rooms, helpful desk people. Beautiful view of the bay and close to town.
