Meet family for lunch here as we were flying back to the UK, Very fast service and portions are good also €50 for lunch for 5 including a bottle of wine My only comment would be to clear the tables in the bar area - it looks a mess

While staying in Loughrea this hotel was wonderful. Staff were so helpful when we were here with our young baby and were totally flexible, nothing was ever a problem! Food was fabulous, can't wait to come back on our next trip to Ireland!

Lovely bright comfortable hotel. Staff at reception very welcoming, waitress/waiters very attentive and pleasant. Children made feel very welcome also. Food very good standard. Be careful with regards to breakfast as shutters come down at 10.30 promptly. However, waitress did oblige me with a hot breakfast when I requested it. Would recommend this hotel without hesitation.

Was a nice hotel. Good food at a good price in the lounge. Spa was a little on the high price but staff was super nice and helpful. Rooms were nice and well kept. Overall was a good hotel. Within walking distance of the supermarket was a bonus
