The scenery of the area is spectacular! A very large bath in our beautiful room (in our spa hotel) but not enough warm (let alone) hot water to fill it. Very disappointing and so basic a thing to get right. Very silly for a place where guests want to relax. Dont bother putting a bath into the room if you cant fill it!!!
Everything! The Staff were so lovely and helpful. The room was beautiful, as were the views. The Spa was so relaxing. The whole experience was great
Beautiful location with view of the mountains from all sides of the hotel, food was fabulous, lots of activities during the day and a very relaxing spa.
The location is stunning. Architecture is nice and rooms are different from regular hotels. The loft room was nice but not very big. Spa facilities seemed good. Overpriced - accomodation and food. Not a good family hotel, no playground or outside leisure facilities which is surprising given that Delphi have a fantastic outdoor education centre nearby. No TV in room. Perfect for singles and couples who want the spa experience. We did get an excellent babysitter though, very friendly and great with our daughter. The meal was good but not fantastic. Restaurant staff were friendly and prompt. Deluxe double room wasn't very deluxe.
Its location, ideal to go cycling etc Its poor entertainment for night time, could not imagine staying during the winter months, no tv, no interent access no music? Also tried to over charge for bar drinks!!!!
Same luxury as it was 36 years ago with obvious upgrades of entire facility. Accommodations are nice and the food is just wonderful. Staff is so accommodating. We loved it and wouldn't miss it when we get to Ireland.
Very friendly staff. Excellent food - evening dinner is top class. The setting of the hotel is stunning and the walks in the grounds and nearby are excellent It may be just the time of year (end May) but there are a lot of biting flies in the vicinity
Total relaxation Single bed was squeekey
kind staff ,very restful
The atmosphere of the hunting lodge, location right on the Atlantic and great food.
the athmosphere the relaxsation and the hotel food the interior decor could do with some redecorating
The Hotel is in a nice location,the staff are friendly and the hotel has a warm friendly feeling.I had two guests to dinner. The food was excellent My room was far from clean,dust over bed the carpet is tired and stained the bathroom has seen better days. No newspapers available at reception.
Very welcoming, helpful staff. Most comfortable rooms and public areas. A stunning, peaceful, relaxing setting. None.
The food was excellent, the views around the hotel are great. It would appear that the place is improving each time we go there
Dog friendly. Excellent breakfast. Evening meal excellent vlue for money. Facilities are very good. Lovely views, location and atmosphere.
good food, excellent service, relaxing atmosphere. Dissapointed with the room, grubby bed linen, torn curtains, dirty windows.
The service we got was fantastic. Lots of help and concern when we had money issues with a bank in the US. Really great advice about what to see in the area. Very low key and easy place to stay but they were always available to help if needed. Lovely breakfast choices. Clifden is a great base for exploring Connemara. Lots of noise between rooms especially with the plumbing.
Nice location - welcoming staff - good breakfast - low key and friendly No bad points
The rooms were very clean and spacious. The beds were very comfortable and the the food was good and the service was exellent.
The pancakes are a must.The downstairs common room was conducive to socializing with other guests. The location was perfect for exploring town on foot and as a base to explore other towns. Owners were very pleasant and accommodating.Can walk on sidewalks to pubs within 2 mins. The rooms/bathrooms are updated, they obviously put money back into their home, it shows. I would definitely stay here again! N/A
Convenient location, very nice furnishings and fixtures, warm and friendly staff, good advice about local attractions and directions
The location was excellent - a short stroll from the main streets but far enough away from the noise of the busy pubs and restaurants to get a good nights sleep. Good size rooms, clean and bright, great choice of breakfast in the morning, and a warm and very helpful host....... No, I had a good visit here. I would recommend it to my mother-in-law..... and that says a lot.......!!!
Very friendly, family run hotel. Good location within town and reasonable parking available. If you like olde worlde then this is perfect if not... Tea/cofee only available in main lounge, would like facilities in own room. tv was very small (I know not in hotel to watch tv, but nice to have the comfortable option).
Quiet location, but within minutes to the town shops, bars and restaurants. Breakfast was delicious. Knowledgable staff regarding what to visit in the area. Would have loved black out blinds at the windows.
location, comfortable room and beds, lounge, breakfast No tea and coffee in rooms - for this price I would have expected this facility.
easy parking...walking distaance to main part of town no
The excellent rooms Meals are over cooked, over priced and do not reflect the reigon.
The heat the morning is not on .
The hotel was clean and very friendly staff. The only thing that comes to mind is that the bar was full of staff and we were not made to feel very comfortable.
friendly atmosphere, very good good. the central heating went off at night, we were cold and had to ask for extra bed clothes the following day..
comfortable and clean and very good restaurant. Breakfast choices excellent
notying much very average the food was awful in the evenings.the water was brown
Friendlky efficient staff
The hotel room was spacious and clean
Excellent Guest House. Really comfortable mattress on bed. Very good breakfast.
Excellent location and very friendly atmosphere. Breakfasts were lovely. Whilst there was coffee available in the lounge, I always prefer the option of having coffee/tea in room.
This is a b&b and the personal service was excellent, very welcoming None
very friendly and helpful,would stay again! best breakfast ever!!
Very convenient to walk into Clifden, nice view from front and dining area. computer/internet a little difficult to use.
Welll equiped B and B with all we could need. Excellent breakfast.
The breakfast was excellent and buttermilk was also on the buffet. The pancakes were delicious.
We were made to feel welcome and every effort was made to ensure we were comfortable.
We were made to feel welcome. Love to details. Great, freshly cooked breakfast in several variations.
The staff were very courties, and the hostess was very friendly and answered all of our needs NO
excellent food, very frendly staff, location ideal for absolut relax. as above
Very friendly staff and the hotel was an interesting place to stay. Epensive wine list and drinks at the bar. I would like for the Hotel to give the true cost of the stay. ie include the service charge in the cost. The general condition of the hotel was a little tired and in the need of refurbishment.The food didn't live up to the awards given. Well with exception of the breakfast, best eggs ever.
The hotel was a a high standard and the staff were exceptionally efficient, helpful and charming. Nothing
A fantastic service experience. Beautiful food and calm environment inside and out. Thank you!
The location, the staff, the ambience. Lack of indoor facilities e.g. pool, spa. The quality of food and wine was good but perhaps expensive for what it was.
Excellent attention to detail, nothing was over looked, absolutely spotless, everywhere ! Fabulous restaurant, menus, and staff.Definitely will recommend. will be back! nothing at all
The personal touch all staff displayed. Attention to detail and the quality of the food.
Everything. The Hotel had lots of character.
We loved the old world feel of the place and loved the gardens. It was home from home.
Relaxed atmosphere, courtesy, food, location, gardens, efficient service.
restaurant was excellent
Location, luxury, cleanness high price
The staff were very friendly and the food and setting were excellent. My room was a bit basic.
pleasent helpfull staff, great views, peace and quiet
The location was beautiful... Sunset over the water ...which you could see from our room...the clearness and quality of room were outstanding.... Would love the go back again. No elevator ...my partner is disabled.
The food (breakfast and dinner) and the view from the restaurant were sensational; liked the fact that a lot of ingredents used were organic and grown behind the hotel. The bar area and lounge were very comfortable and the owner was friendly, welcoming and ensured guests became involved in the evening's entertainment (rattling tambourines!) The room we had at the back had a slight musty (ex smoking?) odour. The corridors were a little dark and could do with lightening/updating. The exterior and some of the interiors of the hotel have a slightly pre-fabricated look about them that could be softened by the planting of climbers outside and re-decorating inside. The initial welcome by the receptionist was a little frosty, but this may have been due to staff doubling up to serve dinner, etc.
Good food, good location noisy bedroom (no.2)
The food was just amazing, best restaurant I have ever experienced. Beautiful setting, overlooking bay with sea view. Lovely warm welcome very relaxed atmosphere. Will definitely be back again.
The food was delicious and it was so easy to go into the town of Clifden or Roundstone or Carna. A great centrally located hotel away from the "city" yet close enough when you felt the need. Loved it!
Very cute and cosy hotel. Nothing.
the room was large and clean. The view in the room was amazing. It's not a huge hotel but is very cute. The interior was very pretty. Dinner and breakfast are quite expensive
The location and scenery were superb and provided a "get away from it all" experience. The old world charm of the hotel itself was also wonderful.
The location More street signage to be posted on the main road. The Hotel itself is "as good as it gets"
Absolutely everything - this is a real gem. No.
Friendly welcome on arrival to the Hotel
Good location for getting away from it all. Food is excellent. Double room on the small side.
Warm and welcoming atmosphere. Rooms tastefully furnished and very comfortable. Spectacular views of the river from the dining room and our bedroom. Relaxing walks in the castle grounds. Food excellent both in the bar and dining room. Courteous, friendly and helpful staff. Would highly recommend the castle as a place to get away from it all. My husband and I had a wonderful break to celebrate our wedding anniversary.
a fantastic establishment that caters for every need,the staff were very friendly and most helpful.
Food very good but expensive.Good wine list and good prices.Breakfast excellent.Lovey setting and great place for walks ,very peaceful. Furniture in public area very tired and in need of replacement.The classic room we got was very small and would only pass as a 3 star hotel room.Very disappointed with the room as we had heard great things about the hotel.
Atmosphere and views Tea served by room service was stewed or the water was poor
We had a beautiful room with gorgeous views. The location is idyllic, and was perfect for a totally relaxing autumn break. Loved absolutely everything.... and will definitley go back
We've been warmly welcomed even if we arrived very late in the evening!Beds are very comfortable !!! The family room is a little too small ... ok for one nighy, but too small for a longer stay.
In clifden center, cant argue with that. Not the worst places we've stayed in by far.
centralised location Service on first day, very unwelcoming. However this did seem to improve. Only one member of staffwas present throughout our stay, subsequently they appeared to be rushed off their feet. At breakfast we had to wait and wait to be served as this member of staff was all alone. We stayed for two nights, during which time our room was not cleaned, mugs remained unwashed, tea and coffee not replenished. This b and b was cheap however you would at least expect the basics to be takn care of.
The breakfast was vey nice and the room was comfortable with a nice ensuite I thought whatever guy running it was a bit cold. Not very friendly.
peace and quiet
The breakfast was ok and staff very friendly the room was too small for a double and single bed & bathroom needs a shelf for washbag
Everything was very easy and the breakfast was great.!
The service could have been friendlier.
Very convenient to town centre This is a very basic guesthouse at a high price. 50 euro per double room would be more appropriate. The shower pressure was pathetic. Be careful at chech out, they converted my bill to my own currency without asking which added another 3.5% to an already too high bill.
We were made to feel very welcome. Nothing was too much trouble for the owner
The food, the surroundings - fab place to stay and eat
A perfect place to relax, perfect service, great food and a magnificent view.
friendly atmosphere, beautiful scenery and a genuine willingness from all staff to help make the stay as good as possible without being in your face either. dining prices
The staff were very friendly and the services was great. Nothing was too much trouble.
The suite was large and they did a great job promoting the castle ambiance. A bit expensive for the run down rooms.
The castle and garden. The breakfast
Our stay at the Abbeyglen was wonderful, relaxing and just what we needed away from the hub bub of Dublin life and work. It was terrific. I think the large sofa in the lobby could do with being replaced. It was obviously extremely comfortable when it was put in first but you would nearly need a crane to get out of it now. I say this for all the right reasons as alot of older people seem to visit there also and getting of the the couch could prove very difficult for them.:)
This is an excellent hotel where customers come first and the level of service is amazing and excellent This hotel is special no
The entire experience was great.
The room we stayed in was magnificent. The extras like champagne reception and afternoon tea.
Location Bit old
foyles hotel is a great base for the wonderful scenery of connemara
We Liked The staff and the comfort of the hotel.The beds were so comfy Im couldmhave stayed all day
Marconi Restaurant was very good.
The bed was infested with bed bugs and I came away with bites all over my lower legs. As well at breakfast there was a hair in my food. They have a lot of staff but they should look into the cleanliness of the hote.
I found the hotel to be clean and comfortable with a pleasant staff.
Proximity to local bars and restaurants and cosy atmosphere. Breakfast was a bit of a disappointment, very greasy cold fried eggs, cold coffee and generally cold.
Since I was only sleeping at the hotel, I didn't have an opportunity to try their breakfasts or use the bar. However, generally the staff were very friendly and helpful, and the one dinner I had was of good quality. Its carpets - which were old and too "busy" for my taste; also, the fact that there were no lifts and one had to carry luggage up stairs. I also was surprised that despite being July, there was no Resident's Lounge facility.
Reasonable room price Waitress insisted in pouring coffee while guests were having juice/cereal.It was then cold when it was needed - with toast/bbreakfast
It was a nice small Hotel and the receptionist was very friendly and helpful. It was not possible to get food during the night - we were starving and would have loved a sandwich nothing fancy just a plain simple sandwich!!!. Also we asked the night porter to ring a taxi for a friend and they wouldn't and they also would not give us any taxi numbers they were very unhelpful.
I really enjoyed the friendly atmosphere and the excellent food. The room was very comfortable and of course the scenery is magnficent.
My Husband and myself both consider this to be the best Hotel we have ever stayed in. We were looking for a small luxury hotel without crowds so that we could enjoy our wedding anniservary peacefully. This hotel fitted the bill perfectly. All of the staff obviously enjoy their job and this came across in their attitude to their guests. We will definetly be coming back.
Everything: fabulous location and views, beautiful adn spacious rooms, excellent food and wonderful staff
Very nice old world atmosphere. good fishing experience. very good food. I would prefer better potatoe dishes rather than chips or mash.
The lovely way in which the hotel was managed so that we felt welcome, comfortable and well cared for in every way.
Beautiful location, Beautiful house They weren't available on the phone around 20:00 on the first day when we needed some help with finding the location (the answer machine says that they answer only until 17:30) - it was very stressing
Tucked as it is in the stunning Connemara mountains, the hotel is in a near perfect location. Adding to this the warm and friendly welcome, the personal service and the superb food has meant this is one hotel I am looking forward to visiting again. A true gem.
staying at the lodge was a vwery relaxing enjoyable experience, the staff mad every effort to ensure our confort during our stay, would have no problem recommending it as a getaway venue.
The food was excellent and the Connemara surroundings were spectacular
Very friendly welcome and attentive service throughout. Unique location with spectacular views. Would like to have stayed much longer.
The relaxed atmosphere and the good food
delicious dinner We did not like the new bar, and our room took a long time to get warm
The bed was very comfortable and all the linens seemed new and nicely pressed.The staff were very friendly and helpful. The decor is very dated and needs a complete refurb to bring it to modern standards.The breakfast was not very good, it was nto set up for guests at 8:15am and so there was no milk, cutlery tea or coffee readily available.
I thought that the rooms and showers were superb and the hotel was clean and pleasant and truly excellent value for money
Price and location . Noise level from outside as it is near to some very good pubs, Not exactly a negative unless your planning an early night.
The location was good. The reception area was welcoming. Hotel was small and had character but would be considered a guest hotel by most standards. The hotel staff lacked experience. Service was very poor. Staff were not friendly and were quite rude. Staff really let this hotel down. Rooms, although clean were old fashioned.
The hotel was right in the center of town, convenient to all the town had to offer. Great location. The hotel is an ollder property and could use some upgraded appliances.
We recieved a warm welcome on arrival .Staff kind and friendly. Lovely food in bar, bedroom comfortable +lots of space.. Music in bar was good. Location excellent . No Compliants .
