“Very helpful staff”
Reviewed December 6, 2012

We stayed at the Salthill Hotel in November. We won a weekend break in a competition run by Irish Autism Action (we have 2 children with autism). We had a very nice welcome at reception and our rooms were ready. The rooms were nice and clean and had everything we needed. We had trouble with the TV but that was due to high winds. The pool was lovely for the kids. The best thing for us was the restaurant. We are normally reluctant to use restaurants as our kids find it hard to sit still and have very restricted diets. The staff found a quiet corner for us and prepared the kids' food exactly as they like it. Our food was fabulous and they were very knowledgable about gluten free choices (I am coeliac). The best thing was we went to breakfast the next morning and we were given the same table (people with autism like things to be the same) and we were given extra help. We returned to the restaurant that evening and again had the same table and the same specially prepared food. For a family like us, this is the difference between a lovely experience and a disaster. We enjoyed a lovely walk along the beach and went to the aquarium and then had a great time in the hotel pool. This is a fantasic hotel for families and the staff were all friendly and very helpful. A big thank you to the IAA and the Salthill Hotel from the Flood family.

Over all the service was great and the hotel itself was fantastic. My wife and I stay in a lot of hotels and this is up there with the best of them. Right in the center of salthill over looking the sea front.
Great rooms, great service, great food and great location

Will be back

We had a lovely stay at this hotel. The decor throughout the hotel was very nice and the room itself was a good size with plenty of space for a cot it was clean and comfortable. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The leisure centre is great with two separate pools which accommodates the more serious swimmers and those there to have fun with their children like us it also has a large jacuzzi and steam room as well as a sauna. Breakfast was very good. I would definitely recommend this hotel it is a great all round place to stay.

very good value, very nice service with wide range of extras, great full irish breakfast... the room was very nice prepared, clean and for non-smokers, air conditioning was a bit loud but I was able to turn it off. In the evening and morning we used the swimming pool at their Ocean Fitness Center, very clean and low level of chlorine... upstairs great sfuff for yoga, pilates and gym, very nice relax at business trip

Room Tip: during the foggy weather no matter what room you choose but I image it might be nice to have the vie...

Stayed here as a couple for two nights and could not fault hotel. The decor of the hotel is fantastic and this follows through to the bedrooms. Everything was clean and contemporary.

The leisure facilities were amazing with two pools and a large jacuzzi. Again the pool area was immaculately clean. Didn't use the gym facilities but there is a view from the pool of the gym and it seemed to be fine.

Ate in the Prom restaurant on the first night and was very impressed, from the food to the service I just could not fault it. Good choice on the menu and presentation was lovely as well as tasting great.

We didn't eat in the bar but had a couple of drinks and it was nice. Its a large bar and again nicely decorated with plenty of seating areas.

Breakfast each morning was lovely. Person in charge was very efficient and took guests to their table and took orders for tea/coffee and toast. Selection of breakfast was great and was topped up on several occasions.

The only gripe I would have would be that we were put in a triple room so there was a double bed and two single beds. Having the two single beds meant that it took away from the space in the room and also trying not to dirty the beds or put stuff on them was annoying.

Also don't expect a sea view as we were told it's €20 extra a night for that which we were not willing to pay giving the weather that day lashing rain and gale force winds!

Overall a great experience and would definstely be back!

Booked the Salthill Hotel for an evening event with 50 guests. The service from Pauline and the staff was excellent - starting with establishing a good understanding of what we wanted, our overall philosophy etc. Our expectations were surpassed on the night in question by attention to details such as the dressing of the tables in our preferred colours, the candelabras over each table with real candles, the scrumptious food etc. We would certainly have no hesitation in recommending the Salthill Hotel for any such events going forward. Indeed, we are already planning our next event there!
