The staff were very friendly and the services was great. Nothing was too much trouble.
A perfect place to relax, perfect service, great food and a magnificent view.
The room we stayed in was magnificent. The extras like champagne reception and afternoon tea.
The suite was large and they did a great job promoting the castle ambiance. A bit expensive for the run down rooms.
The food, the surroundings - fab place to stay and eat
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
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 entire experience was great.
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.
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.
a fantastic establishment that caters for every need,the staff were very friendly and most helpful.
Friendly welcome on arrival to the Hotel
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
Atmosphere and views Tea served by room service was stewed or the water was poor
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.
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.
Good location for getting away from it all. Food is excellent. Double room on the small side.
I could bring my dog into the common areas of the hotel The breakfast and it not served in the main dining room.
excellent food,friendly staff,very relaxing
Pleasent and welcoming staff and good standard of food available. At the present time €100 euro for a standard double room is above average.
The homely atmosphere of the hotel and the fact that Carna Bay was not a real tourist town No
FRiendlyness and excellent food.No problem improving on my Gaeilge.Bhi sar am agam agus beidh me arais ariis chun mo cuid Gaeilge a clachtu agus ciunus na haitea glacadh im craoi. Ait har bar an Ostan agusbeidh me arais le C D.
staff were very friendly. the food was very good and plentifull, we certainly didn't feel hungry. the room had a good veiw and was very comfortable. n/a
It is a very friendly hotel staff are very helpful, food is very good they seemed to cater for our needs sa we were staying for five nights we were given a larger room so we were pleased all round. the alochol was a bit expensive .
Was made feel really at home, nothing was too much trouble for the staff. Food excellent.
have stayed several times always find it relaxing and very welcoming no
the service level of the owner and the employees is very good; the hotel infrastructure reflects recent investments, nevertheless the rooms are cosy and old-fashioned style, the site is in roughly equal distance to Kylemore Abbey, Cleggan, Clifden, (air)port to the Aran Islands, Galway (on the way Glengowla mine and Aughnanure castle) => just perfect in Connemara you have to accept the remoteness of Carna Bay itself (it's more a '+' than a '-')
Comfort, service, facilities and location were all very good. A very relaxing base in a beautiful part of Ireland with much to do within a short distance of the hotel.
Friendly, helpful staff. Very comfortable beds.Ideally situated in beautiful countryside. would have liked more vegetarian choices on menu at Station Pub.
we had alovely stay at the hotel very relaxed and the food was fantastic would definitily go back with friends i didn't like how you had to pay a deposit on towels when going swimming
I liked the relaxed athmosphere and all the lovely little shops surrounding the hotel, also nice bars. The only thing i did'nt like were the sausages at breakfast, unedible, and the eggs were cold, had eaten breakfast when we were asked for Tea & Toast. Was not impressed with T.V channels poor quality and poor choice.
Relatively nice room. The staff member on reception was quite indifferent to us on arrival. We arrived to be told a function would be on that evening. What we didn't expect was it to be a fashion show with party and live band that went until 1:00am in the morning. Although it may have been for a good cause, we were unable to sleep until 1:30am. We should have been placed higher up. The hallways and lift area were used as a "women's" changing room - as a guest (male or otherwise) it was unacceptable to have to "intrude" into that area to reach your room. Internet was not free and cost 9.95 euro! Although the water was fine to drink, it was very yellow and tasted quite bad, no complimentary water was provided. Have had better value and at guesthouses and hostels.
Relaxed atmostphere and friendly atmostphere. The food at the Signal Pub was adequate and not good value. One small piece of beef fillet as a main course!!
the staff were very friendly and helpfull
was okay, out of town and more expensive than the numerous b and b's in town (only 20 euros for those). would not go back to this next time.
Relaxed atmosphere, courtesy, food, location, gardens, efficient service.
We loved the old world feel of the place and loved the gardens. It was home from home.
Everything. The Hotel had lots of character.
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 personal touch all staff displayed. Attention to detail and the quality of the food.
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
A fantastic service experience. Beautiful food and calm environment inside and out. Thank you!
excellent food, very frendly staff, location ideal for absolut relax. as above
The hotel was a a high standard and the staff were exceptionally efficient, helpful and charming. Nothing
foyles hotel is a great base for the wonderful scenery of connemara
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 found the hotel to be clean and comfortable with a pleasant staff.
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.
We Liked The staff and the comfort of the hotel.The beds were so comfy Im couldmhave stayed all day
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.
Marconi Restaurant was very good.
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
Location Bit old
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.
The staff were very courties, and the hostess was very friendly and answered all of our needs NO
This is a b&b and the personal service was excellent, very welcoming None
We were made to feel welcome and every effort was made to ensure we were comfortable.
The breakfast was excellent and buttermilk was also on the buffet. The pancakes were delicious.
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.
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.
We were made to feel welcome. Love to details. Great, freshly cooked breakfast in several variations.
Welll equiped B and B with all we could need. Excellent breakfast.
Excellent Guest House. Really comfortable mattress on bed. Very good breakfast.
The service could have been friendlier.
peace and quiet
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.
In clifden center, cant argue with that. Not the worst places we've stayed in by far.
We were made to feel very welcome. Nothing was too much trouble for the owner
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
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.
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.
Everything was very easy and the breakfast was great.!
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.
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.
I really enjoyed the friendly atmosphere and the excellent food. The room was very comfortable and of course the scenery is magnficent.
Everything: fabulous location and views, beautiful adn spacious rooms, excellent food and wonderful staff
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.
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
The lovely way in which the hotel was managed so that we felt welcome, comfortable and well cared for in every way.
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.
Very nice old world atmosphere. good fishing experience. very good food. I would prefer better potatoe dishes rather than chips or mash.
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.
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 relaxed atmosphere and the good food
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.
delicious dinner We did not like the new bar, and our room took a long time to get warm
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 .
