“Amazing Hotel”
Reviewed November 27, 2011

By far the best hotel my friends and family have ever stayed in. On arriving the reception we were greeted by dee who was wonderful!!! She was so helpful and as we were in a hen party she organised a champagne reception before we went out that night which was wonderful! Dee also gave us directions and to every place we wanted to go to and suggested other places that she knew we would like. The manager and owner was lovely to deal with and a pleasure to talk to. I will certainly be making a return trip as soon as i can find an excuse!
The hotel itself is beautiful inside and out clean and very welcoming! The rooms are very tastefully decorated and cosy. On arriving back from our night out we went to the residents bar and the barman was lovely we were treated like royalty! We were even brought out two huge plates of sandwiches and some of our group ordered tea which was no inconvieniance to our barman!!! even at 2am!
I would highly reccomend this hotel to anyone!!! It was by far the best hotel that any of our group of 11 have ever stayed in!

Having had to seek alternative accommodation during the weekend we contacted the Bush Hotel. I can't possibly state how helpful and welcoming the management and staff here were, they transformed what was becoming a nightmare weekend into something wonderful indeed! The hotel we had booked (and stayed one night) turned out to be the hotel(?) from hell and so we sought alternative accommodation. The Bush Hotel came to our rescue (all eleven of us!) and offered us alternative accommodation. What a lovely, warm and welcoming hotel, top class! The staff and management couldn't do enough for us, they were so sympathetic to our plight and went out of their way to help us. Loved the ambience here, food was delicious too! I'd have no hesitation in recommending this hotel to anyone visting the Carrick on Shannon area, or for those living locally, the Rhubarb Crumble in their Coffee Dock is delish!

This is an older hotel but very well maintained. The room I had was huge, bathroom had a towel warmer as well as a clothes line over the tub. The hardest working, friendliest and overall most accommodating staff of any hotel I have ever stayed in. Food was excellent and as a retired chef I feel more than qualified to say so.
It looks like a location for a Agatha Christie novel. One expects to see Miss Marple sitting in the lounge knitting and having tea.

We stayed here on a staff night out and have to say everyone enjoyed the stay. The rooms were all clean. The staff here were so helpful especially Breda who organised the booking for us. The poor portor of the night had the patience of a saint as I am sure we should have gone to our beds alot earlier that we did. We had a very enjoyable stay here and could recommend it for groups. Pleasure doing business with them.
