I'll start with the plus points:
Friendly, helpful staff
Large bedroom
Very good leisure centre
Breakfast good

Now for the much longer list of negative points:
Although bedroom was big, only double bed, not kingsize
One chair in bedroom in very tatty state with bottom of it hanging off
Television very poor - apalling spund quality
No shower gel/shampoo in dispenser
No sugar for tea/coffee
In the restaurant we both ordered medium rare steak. His was just right mine was very well done. I sent it back. Second steak was raw not rare in centre. Sent it back again. By the time it arrived for 3rd time my partner had finished & i had lost my appetite.
At 3am the fire alarm went off - false alarm
Decor in dining room dark & depressing.
Bedroom decor very spartan - pictures propoed on top of wardrobe where they can hardly be seen but none on the walls.
Tv in bedroom on a low table so difficult to watch when lying on bed
We stayed here on a voucher deal which was very good value. I definitely would not stay again if paying full price.

This is a very okay hotel, but å bit far from the city centre. I came here with my boyfriend, just for one night stop over from our road trip. Got the impression that its mostly used for local weddings and stuff. Friendly staff.

I have just recently stayed at the Auburn lodge on the 30/03 for two night’s with the recommendation of a friend. We got a great deal, the room was lovely clean , modern with everything that we needed. The double bed was huge, the staff were very friendly and accommodating and the residents bar stays open late. We asked for a number for a restaurant in town we had been recommended (Seasons 52) which was great value for money and the food was exceptional in value and also taste. It was no problem for the receptionist to book us a table and order us a taxi and even come into the bar to let us now the taxi was there. The leisure centre is clean and well maintained. The hotel is located about 30 to 40 mins drive to the cliffs of Mohar with Lehinch on the way which is well worth a visit. The receptionist allowed us a late check out and also wrote us down directions to get to Lehinch. We were recommended the carvery at the hotel but we didn't have time. I would definitely recommend this hotel and come back again.

We stayed at the auburn lodge Hotel in Clare from the 16th to 17th of March, we came accross it online and it looked nice and had a good rate. The images used on there web site were not really misleading but not really accurate..
The decor in the hotel lobby was nice and uptodate, but once you leave there its like a step back in time to the 80's.. bad lighting in the hallways dark wooden trim and doors and same inside the rooms. Normally when staying in a hotel you always notice how hot it is in the halls and rooms...not so much here..it was so cold in the room we had to use a second duvet, the central heating in the room gets turned off at 10pm ??

We had one eve meal free with our package which was really nice but service was very slow and it was not because they were busy. The staff were really nice and helpful but it looks like the hotel is running on min staff, 1 person working at the bar on St. Patricks night?? took a while to get a drink.
We had planned to stay for an extra night but that changed after the first night sadly.
This hotel appeals to the much older couples 65+

Room Tip: Try get one of the newer rooms..

Situated on the edge of Ennis, this hotel has seen better days. Some rooms are modern and clean, but the rest are dingy and dated. The food is nothing special, and the barman takes an age to realise he has a customer. The TV reception in the rooms and bar is dreadful and would freeze or completely lose signal several times per night. Its one shining light is its fitness centre which, although small, is very clean and welcoming.

my boyfriend and I stayed here with our three children. we got a great deal. the food and leisure facilities are excellent. Our room was cold when we arrived and the water was cold. we rang down and within the hour the problem was solved! The bar staff could do with smiling as The hotel was not very busy. the receptionist and the housekeeper staff were very helpful with any queries we had. The selection available for breakfast was nothing special, just the basics! it was great value for money. we also got free pass tickets for the barneys activity building next door! We will be back.
