Advertisements for accommodation never reveal the full picture. We recently stayed at Atlantic Heights and our overall rating is average. The location is not the greatest, as you really need to drive to nearby restaurants. The closest option was Tom Sheridan's pub which is a good 12 minute walk, and it's not a scenic walk along the promenade. The Salthill centre where all the restaurants and better hotels / B&Bs are located is a 5 minute drive. The sea view is not great either. However, on the positive side, the reception was friendly and helpful, and the room was large with a very comfortable mattress. We opted for a 'garden room' as the sea view room was smaller, however the 'garden' is hardly a garden, more a backyard. The bathroom and shower were small. There was complimentary mineral water and nice biscuits in the room each day. The room was well maintained with fresh towels. There is no laundry facility, and you are directed to a local laundrette. Probably the most disappointing matter was that having booked through Booking.com, and believing that we had got the best price available online, we discovered that the owner adds 15% to her direct price. Therefore we paid 94 euros per night (room only) instead of 80 euros if we had booked directly.
