We have never stayed in a hotel where all the staff were as friendly as in the Ballina Manor, and it is not the gushing American looking for a tip friendliness, it is genuine. They are simply nice people. The hotel is greatly improved since the "Ridgepool" days and the location couldn't be more central for shops, bars and of course the ridgepool fishing just at the door. Well worth a visit.

On Saturday, February 5th 2011, my husband, my parents and I had a very bad experience in a very 'exclusive' hotel in Ballina, Co. Mayo which I have detailed in another review on tripadvisor.ie. Our difficulties meant that we left the first establishment with nowhere to stay. As we drove into Ballina town feeling dejected and slightly worried, we spotted a most impressive building on the banks of the River Moy. The Ballina Manor Hotel was a striking looking building in a wonderful setting so we parked up and went in. This hotel has recently been renovated and reopened under new ownership. The reception area was very bright and spacious and we received a wonderful welcome from a female member of staff whose name escapes me unfortunately. Bearing in mind that we were already very disappointed by our untimely departure from a 'luxury 4star hotel and spa' in Ballina earlier in the day, we were more careful this time. We asked to look at the rooms before we booked in. That was no problem. Thomas lead us to the rooms which were very spacious, clean and comfortable with river views. We decided to check in based on how the rooms looked, how friendly and welcoming the receptionist had been and how professional and helpful Thomas had been with a personal touch. Even though it was obvious that we needed to check in somewhere for the evening, this was not used as an opportunity to overcharge us and we booked in for a price of E89 per couple per room b&b. Thomas and the receptionist recommended local restaurants and made numerous phonecalls in an endeavour to help us make a booking for dinner. (We were supposed to be having dinner in the 'luxury 4 star hotel and spa' we had left earlier in the day due to very poor service.) We had a snack in the bar of the Ballina Manor Hotel, it was a lovely sandwich at a very reasonable price and the lady who was working there was very chatty and friendly which we liked. Later that night, there was live music in the bar and that was enjoyable too. Bar staff again are to be commended for their friendliness and efficiency. Both couples had a lovely sleep that night and we had breakfast downstairs Sunday morning. The breakfast was lovely. There was no hot buffet as breakfasts were being cooked to order in the kitchen. Delicious. The member of staff on the floor was very friendly and delivered any amount of toast and lots of tea and coffee top ups. We really enjoyed our stay and we will stay in this hotel when we next return to Ballina. I think the Ballina Manor Hotel offers what many hotels in Ireland have lost.......a personal touch, excellent service and good food at a reasonable price. We will be recommending this hotel to all of our friends.

I stayed here as a last minute booking with my children due to bad road conditions.The hotel is tastefully decorated ,immaculately clean and warm.The staff were superb extremely professional and much better than I recently encountered in a 4* establishment in the capital! Rooms were welcoming and nicely decorated.The breakfast was freshly cooked to order so much nicer than buffet style.I cannot recommend this hotel enough and will be back.

The staff are to be commended on the wonderful job they do.

We stayed in this hotel when it was the Ridgepool and wouldn't have been in a hurry to go back, but when we were passing last Saturday and noticed the upgraded exterior we thought we'd give it a try, When we entered the lobby it was WOW- so bright and airy and luxurious, such a transformation from the dark soulless area it once was. Well done to the designer. The high standard of decor continued in the bedroom, spacious, comfortable, great view from the window of the River Moy- priceless! We had a lovely time in the Ballina Manor, friendly staff, lovely surroundings, great breakfast. We'll be back. It says in the tips for reviews to give the good and the bad. Sorry, there were no bad!
