The relaxing atmosphere and the location and facilities. I have already recommended this hotel to family and friends
The personalised service and the welcome we were given with our dog was great. The facilites were all very understated and comfortable and not very hotely which was pleasant. Not a glitzy glamorous hotel but somewhere that is lacking in any pretensions and provides excellent local food and a warm and welcoming atmosphere with well thought out facilities. The views are superb and as the hotel is quite isolated on its own peninsula jutting into the Atlantic they have outdoor activites that guests are welcome to play such as croquet and bowls. An outdoor heated pool and small pitch golf course. Resident geece with goslings were also there. Good for couples, groups and families. Sad to leave
The hotel has not suffered from the modern need to be a "boutique hotel with superior style" where you might feel the need to look for your coaster before you put your beer glass back on the table. What it has is a homely atmosphere... created by its layout in many respects. All bodies have to pass through the lounge with it's 2 turf fires surrounded by lazy couches where an hello and a chat to a fellow guest is an easy thing to do. From there you can take one direction to the large dining room for some good food or another to the bar where the hotel try to create some atmosphere at night and the rest is up to the quests. Or another again to move out of the hotel to the beaches a mere stroll away or the lake for some fishing although that's so close you'd think the fish would co-operate and just leap to the hotel kitchen. My single room was more like a spacious double, but maybe I got lucky i don't know? The lack of TV channels in the rooms or TV's in the common arears is probably what the hotel is about....no more bad news, look around you, talk to people, get out and about. And out and about is great although good weather is a help when the hotel sits in such a rugged but beautiful area. Maybe I was lucky with the weather, fell in and out of good company, or maybe too many beers have clouded my judgmement....but so what!
It could only be small things and should be of more concern to the hotel than a guest e.g. it takes a long time for the hot water to become hetaed. Taps are running for some time unnecessarily, therefore, it wouldb be greener and save on water rates to sort this out.
My first visit, certainly intend returning. Ambience very relaxing, the whole place was simply superb, and we had excellent weather to compliment our stay. It certainly lived up to the expectations I had from friends.The town of Clifden was a draw for us while there, and there were great restaurants here with very good value and excellent food.
Maybe dinner could be more flexible. We found that we would not be able to enjoy a full dinner each evening. Maybe the choice of a 2 course meal as an option would be an idea that would find favour with more of your residents.
kind staff ,very restful
Dog friendly. Excellent breakfast. Evening meal excellent vlue for money. Facilities are very good. Lovely views, location and atmosphere.
The location was wonderful and I liked the country house feel to it-very relaxing and plenty to do.
Some people may be put off by children running everywhere.
family friendly and good sevice excellent breakfasts
bar menu limited & expensive. dining room climbing frame not good for encouraging kids to eat
Quite, peaceful and welcoming.
A bit isolated.
The location is fantastic! The staff are excellant, nothing was too much trouble. The food was fantastic. Lovely relaxing atmosphere wth lots of activities you can participate in. I would really recommend this for those who like to relax and enjoy good food.
Location is excellent. I liked the nature, water, ducks and location to other scenic areas. I loved the food and breakfast up to 11am. I really liked the spaces, fires, library it was a chill out place.
It was expensive and I would have expected more luxury. It was too old fashioned, it badly needs a makeover, Paint peeling is not right for this money.
The food was excellent especially dinner. There was a great choice on the menu and I especially liked the great choice and variety of fish offered. It was a 5 course meal and service was excellent. I had the fresh crab meat as a starter and it was gorgeous. Breakfast was also great with a wide choice of dishes, including very tasty herb potato cakes. Our room was more spacious than I had expected with a lovely view of the lake and sea. We were lucky to have had 2 lovely days of sunshine and the scenery was spectacular. I could have sat for hours gazing afar at the mountains and sea. We also had a lovely sit down in the rose garden near the hotel as its a lovely retreat and not over manicured. The staff were very efficient and the bar area and front foyer had a lovely cosy feel about them. Its got a real country house feel. The ducks near the lake at the front of the hotel were a great source of amusement and visitors didn't bother them. I felt I was intruding upon their space. All in all it was a lovely 2 days and we booked to return in a couple of months.
Its difficult to find fault as the place comes recommended but I found the seating in the bar area uncomfortable. I am aware its in keeping with the overall traditional layout ot the country house but I could imagine it could be improved upon.
The warm welcome from Lorna, excellent food served by lovely dining room staff, the open fires and beautiful accommodation. We cannot wait to go back!
Friendly staff & wonderfully relaxing location
A very relaxing place to be, warm and friendly with excellent food in a wonderful part of Ireland.
