“A lovely accomodation”
Reviewed July 5, 2012

I stayed here with friends on a motorcycling holiday. Firstly, the rather good looking lady of the house (Maureen) is a delight, she is very friendly, wholly pleasant, interested and helpful when required, - she is lovely ! Arch house is (think Im, correct) divided into two separate buildings, the other being a mere few moments walk down the hill. I stayed within Arch house itself and have to say it was extremely comfortable and with spot on decor, cleanliness and tidiness. My single room was fully equipped with TV, shower toilet etc plus Tea / Coffee plus all the required means to make a brew, just the job. I very much appreciated this accommodation for the night, it was spot on !
My three friends stayed in the other building and actually within a self contained flat with three separate bedrooms, and upon looking in on them I could straight away see the property was equally as clean and tidy - if not spotless, but with all the facilities provided for a week long stay. Included fridge, cooker, washing machine and all the paraphernalia one has in one own house.
Again this accommodation was excellent and much appreciated by my friends
Town is literally next door and where one can walk over the Shannon and appreciate the views etc - not to mention the pubs.
My summary here is - A very very good accommodation, and with a very very good breakfast in the morning. Thankyou Maureen !

Great location. Room very clean and compact. Shower wasn't great, noisy and not working properly. Very thin walls, could hear people's conversation next door! Breakfast was lovely. Full Irish. Coffee awful. Parking on site. Staff very friendly.

we are an Irish couple who usually drive through the midlands rather than stop in it. Arch House has changed all that.
It was situated convenient to shops, restaurants and within walking distance of Shannon River where we travelled by boat to Clonmacnoise. It is also within driving distance of towns near Lough Ree where there are good restaurants.
Staff were friendly and breakfast was obviously cooked and served when we arrived down in the morning. No microwave food in this establishment!
There are only a few things which is of no fault to the owners - as strangers to the area we could not see the Street name- but luckily we got out of the car and discovered we were outside the bed and breakfast. It offers free parking, which we liked as we walked and discovered the town, we would recommend it for this alone.
the room was comfortable but again may we suggest a few chairs so we could sit and enjoy the tea we had in the evening before going out.

Dear Maureen

I couldn't go by without saying a big thank you for my recent stay at Arch B&B. Your staff were friendly and helpful. The room was spotless and prepared everyday. Thanks also for helping me to check-in my flight home to Cardiff which I know was not part of your normal service - much appreciated.

I would be more than happy to stay at your B&B again.

Your sincerely

Simon

I have stayed in Arch House B & B and apartments for almost more than two months. It was worth
staying here. It has all facilities which a hotel can have. It is situated at the centre of the city. It is very near to railway station, bus stand and malls.
Mr Mohammad was very helpful to us as he was one of the person of the B &B used to provide all thing on time and even before time sometime.

Good location, friendly people, delicious breakfast! The three of us stayed in one of the apartments, and it was clean, stylish and quiet - good value for money!

Once we found the place, we were greeted like family. Even though the B and B is located on a very busy street, there was very little street noise. The breakfast was really delicious. with home-made bread. I would stay again just the for great breakfast.
