Stayed here for one night...very disappointing. The bedroom badly needs updating, it was very basic. There were cobwebs on the ceiling, paint spatters on the TV and the shower fittings were missing knobs. Very noisy also. Dinner in the restaurant was nice although there was no break between courses. Breakfast options were poor and food was cold. This hotel is... More

Pre-arrival: Got a missed phone call and email from the lady at reception asking me to choose a time for dinner as they were fully booked due to the Mary Black event. Rang... More

The room overlooked the sea, the bed was comfortable, the water was hot - but that's where it stopped. Apart from the tatty state of the room, the noisy pipes woke us up. The windows fitted so badly that the curtains waved in the breeze. Dinner (which was OK) was served in a smelly bar, though the service was friendly... More

Disappointed that hotel has no relaxation rooms and spa facilities. It has a beauty room but it is a cross from hotel carpal and pool is like pool for general public. I had to ask for vegaterian items for my breakfast which is disappointing, my friends said they would not return

Dear Reviewer, Many thanks for taking the time to review the Arklow Bay Hotel. The Bay Beauty Rooms are indeed beauty rooms you are correct we don't have a spa or advertise that we do. Our breakfast buffet has cereals, fruit, yoghurts, breads, pastries, beans, eggs, tomatoes and mushrooms which are all suitable for vegetarians. If you would like to... More

Stayed here for 2 nights this past weekend. Reason for choosing this hotel was a fantastic value deal (2 nights b&b and 1 evening meal €200). Check in was quick and efficient. Room was fine spacious enough for 2 and beds were comfortable. My only gripe would be the room was cold and we couldn't figure out a way to... More

We stayed on a small family getaway booking through Lidl Breaks last minute. The room was slightly small but was modern and spotless. The food was included in our deal and while I'd have preferred more main course options the food was lovely. The gym and pool area are perfect too(just a tip the pool and gym are in a... More

This hotel did not impress, stayed for one night in January 2016. The initial welcome from the reception was not very warm. The room was very small, the bathroom had very basic toiletries and the bath was chipped. There was no iron or ironing board in the room and of course no safe. The room furniture was also very basic,... More
