All staff we encountered very friendly and professional. It makes such a difference when staying anywhere. Room was spacious with a very comfortable bed. The one drawback was the frosted glass in the window giving the room a claustrophobic feel. Breakfast was tasty and the food in the bar area was also good. We enjoyed a massage at the spa...

We stayed here with a voucher. The hotel itself was very nice, but one member of staff was extremely rude. She seemed to get more rude as time went by. She was also the only member of staff without a name badge (I wonder why?) . It was very uncomfortable having to deal with her. Everything was a chore and...

Stayed for 2 nights with my husband. Hotel is nice enough, room was spacious, unfortunately our view was overlooking big steel pipes & the noise was deafening when I opened up the window.

The hotel is a lovely place to go to when in Loughrea or close by, or even if you fancy a spin from Galway. It has great views, service and prices for a Sunday dinner. The roof top garden is pleasant on a nice day and caters to private functions. They offer tasty cocktails and desserts if you want a...
