We booked two double rooms for a Friday night. The rooms we were allocated were at the back of the hotel overlooking the roof of the dining room. The rooms were basic, carpets could do with replacing. The bathrooms were very basic aand on the whole clean although the mould around the bath and shower doors in room 423 was... More

Yes I know weddings probably provide your main revenue but must you really do it at the expense of the ordinary person. Deciding to go for a bite to eat and a drink on a rainy Saturday involves first having to get through the gauntlet of a dozen wedding guests smoking at the hotel entrance which was not only intimidating...

We returned again to the Arklow bay for another weekend away, this time, we got a room with a baloney which had a nice sea and lake view, the hotel was very busy with a wedding on both days Friday and Saturday but this did not effect the service

We went there on a midweek break and we were delighted with it. From Rachael on reception to the restaurant staff and housekeeping everyone was polite and helpful. It's a great base if you want to tour the area and is not expensive. Just a five minute walk out of Arklow, so you don't need a car all the time,... More

I went here for a wedding, and sadly it rained all day, so we didn't get any good outside pictures. But the hotel were marvellous. The food at the wedding was tasty & very more-ish. The room for the reception was great. Loved the food in the bar and breakfast was tasty & plentiful. The bedroom was quiet, comfortable and... More

I can only say that the experience was well above what I expected . The Reception staff were very professional and very helpful. The Rooms were clean and bright and we had a excellent view. Bar staff very attentive (wine was a little bit expensive). All in all I would have no hesitation in recommending this hotel for a weekend... More

Good hotel could do with a bit of modernisation as the décor is a little tired in places Food was on the whole good but could have done with a little more variety on the menu Excellent gym and spa facilities
