“OMG”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2011

We went to the Feile Bia na Mara banquet here, how dissappointing. I was curious to know what Ross Lewis (chapter one) thought of being offered tea and coffee with the main course! What great produce and some of it wasted by serving it cold some seafood is just not meant to be cold i.e. Lemon sole! Room, cold and stark, breakfast, well my scrambled egg still had the shape of the bowl they were microwaved in! There was a tornedo in Achill the next day, that was us getting of the island.............and out of this hotel.

We arrived in Achill Sound on the Saturday of the bank holiday weekend. After a 4 hour drive I was looking forward to showering and getting freshened up for the night ahead. The shower was freezing and the water pressure was a dribble. Not only that but after my terrible shower the room temperature was non existent so I was so cold!! We went down to Alices Bar downstairs which is much more like a dining room than somewhere young people can enjoy the craic. That night The Druids one of Irelands leading Rebel Bands were playing so excellent music but very poor crowd. returning to the rooms in the early hours the rooms were freezing to the point of shivering!! we gotup early and left for Keel and although we had paid 160ish euro for the two nights we did not return to the hotel the Sunday night and only came back on the Monday morning to collect our stuff and leave.

Stayed here for three night bed and breafast break with evening meal included one night. .
Good points; Room was good size and bathroom was clean. Staff were friendly and helpfull. Evening meals were nice however I feel a bit on the expensive side for what you get.

Bad points: Rooms were dated and could do with uplift. Double bed was 2 single beds pushed together. Bed covers looked as if they were washed out and main cover had holes in it! Room was extremely cold and when I phoned reception desk they said they would put heat on.This was put on for approx 30 minutes however the radiators were not even heating up. Heat was not put on again during our 3 day stay even though the weather was very stormy and cold. This was especially annoying when showering, dressing etc. as it was very chilly at night in the room. We requested a room with a view and recieved a view of a large freight container outside the window and building yard complete with heavy plant machinery. Breakfast was also poor with dried up beacon, cheap economy sausages and egg which was burnt to a crisp each morning. A stark contrast from the food served in the evening meals. The bathroom had no ventilation at all or extractor fan!!! The television was montser of a relic which did not even work properly. Likeiwse the room could have done with some form of radio/CD to add some ambience. The hotel also claim they have entertainment "most nights" however there was no entertainment any night we stayed and it was pretty dead in the bar.

All in all I feel the bad points outweigh the good points and this hotel could do with a lot of improvement.
