I stayed at this hotel for three nights with a friend for a chill out relaxing break and to do some touring around Mayo. On arrival we were greeted with a welcoming smile at reception and check in was ultra efficient. We availed of the two night stay with third night free on B&B basis with one evening meal. After the long drive we visited the bar and had a snack of coffee and sandwiches. Once again service was very pleasant and efficient and the freshly made sandwiches were a treat.
The room itself was bright and very spacious, with a double and single bed both very comfortable. The bathroom was clean and and fresh towels given each day. If there was one negative about the room, it was the old television set with colours fading which could be a bother on a wet day. The free wifi was a blessing.
The evening meal was nice also, plenty of choice and once again served by very pleasant staff. The breakfast was also adequate with plenty of choice and set you up for the day ahead.
A car is really a must if staying here. There is a huge car park attached to the hotel so no shortage of parking.The hotel is about a five minute drive from the centre of Castlebar with plenty of scenic drives nearby. If I had one to recommend it would be the drive from Loiusburgh to Leenane.
As for the rant, this very much a family oriented hotel which in itself is not a bad thing. However I was amazed at the numbers of unsupervised children running around public areas, corridors, in the bar and breakfast room. I hasten to add that this is not the fault of the hotel, but something that would put me off visiting again during school holiday periods.
