Pleasent and welcoming staff and good standard of food available. At the present time €100 euro for a standard double room is above average.
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 .
have stayed several times always find it relaxing and very welcoming no
I could bring my dog into the common areas of the hotel The breakfast and it not served in the main dining room.
The homely atmosphere of the hotel and the fact that Carna Bay was not a real tourist town 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 '-')
excellent food,friendly staff,very relaxing
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.
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 food, the surroundings - fab place to stay and eat
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.:)
The castle and garden. The breakfast
This is an excellent hotel where customers come first and the level of service is amazing and excellent This hotel is special no
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 entire experience was great.
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.
Atmosphere and views Tea served by room service was stewed or the water was poor
Friendly welcome on arrival to 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.
The location More street signage to be posted on the main road. The Hotel itself is "as good as it gets"
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
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.
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.
a fantastic establishment that caters for every need,the staff were very friendly and most helpful.
easy parking...walking distaance to main part of town no
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).
Nice location - welcoming staff - good breakfast - low key and friendly No bad points
location, comfortable room and beds, lounge, breakfast No tea and coffee in rooms - for this price I would have expected this facility.
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.
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.......!!!
The rooms were very clean and spacious. The beds were very comfortable and the the food was good and the service was exellent.
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.
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
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.
the staff were very friendly and helpfull
Friendly, helpful staff. Very comfortable beds.Ideally situated in beautiful countryside. would have liked more vegetarian choices on menu at Station Pub.
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.
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
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.
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!!
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.
A fantastic service experience. Beautiful food and calm environment inside and out. Thank you!
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
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.
Relaxed atmosphere, courtesy, food, location, gardens, efficient service.
The personal touch all staff displayed. Attention to detail and the quality of the food.
The hotel was a a high standard and the staff were exceptionally efficient, helpful and charming. Nothing
excellent food, very frendly staff, location ideal for absolut relax. as above
We loved the old world feel of the place and loved the gardens. It was home from home.
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.
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
I found the hotel to be clean and comfortable with a pleasant staff.
Marconi Restaurant was very good.
Location Bit old
foyles hotel is a great base for the wonderful scenery of connemara
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.
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.
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.
We were made to feel very welcome. Nothing was too much trouble for the owner
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.
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.
The service could have been friendlier.
In clifden center, cant argue with that. Not the worst places we've stayed in by far.
peace and quiet
Everything was very easy and the breakfast was great.!
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.
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
Very friendly welcome and attentive service throughout. Unique location with spectacular views. Would like to have stayed much longer.
Everything: fabulous location and views, beautiful adn spacious rooms, excellent food and wonderful staff
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.
Very nice old world atmosphere. good fishing experience. very good food. I would prefer better potatoe dishes rather than chips or mash.
I really enjoyed the friendly atmosphere and the excellent food. The room was very comfortable and of course the scenery is magnficent.
The food was excellent and the Connemara surroundings were spectacular
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.
