Just back from weekend break in oak wood arms, shannon. Lovely hotel, but a little dated! When we checked in we were offered "smoking" or non smoking! I thought this was done away with, but my hubby being a smoker opted for the smoking, and boy would you know it!! It reeked of smoke. The room itself was very small but comfortable. However, the decor is very 70's! and the sink in the bathroom was cracked all the way across. Not a good look! The tv was advertised as having free movies whenever you wanted, but this didnt work! Despite many calls to reception, and they did deal with it promptly, it still didnt work! Pity there is no pool either, as having a steam and sauna seems crazy without a pool?? The service was excellent, friendly staff, always happy to help. The food was also excellent, and very reasonable. We ate in the bar on saturday afternoon, and the menu was lovely. When the meal arrived it also was gorgeous. There was music in the bar saturday night, a traditional band with harp and violins and accordions, but no mike! Hard to hear the guy singing.Very near to shannon airport, but otherwise no town as such to shop! Enjoyed out stay, but as it was lashing we were a little bored stuck in our small hotel room and no pool or leisure centre to hang out! Would not go back!
