Excellent value When we go again we plan to stay longer because of the distance
This hotel is one of the best hotels that we have ever stayed in. The food was amazing, the staff were extremely helpful and the general atmosphere of the castle was more than we could have ever hoped for! Even though we were the only ones with a young child staying there at the time, we couldn't have had a better reception. There was even live irish music playing and complementary champagne for all visitors. It was very lively with what seemed like a fully packed hotel and great ambience. Even the parrot was friendly!
There was nothing to fault the hotel on, they were perfect in every way! Our daughter even received a medal for perfect behaviour which chuffed her to bits!
Location stunning. Hospitality great
Having to leave
Great warm welcome with fun historical overview of castle. Beautifully appointed bedrooms, spotlessly clean, warm & very tastefully decorated. Delicious food, great service & owner's presence & humour created warmth amongst fellow guests & created a welcoming relaxed atmosphere.
We love this hotel and stay in it anytime we are in Clifden, it is warm and friendly and absolutely beautiful and comfortable. The rooms are huge and spacious and real luxury, staff are really lovely and friendly, would highly recommend this beautiful castle to stay for comfort, value, location, it has it all.
that I could only stay for one night
we liked everything about the hotel they give us a free upgrade to a superior room.the food was good and the singing in the bar was great craic.great room to sleep in warm and cosy
We stumbled upon this place driving through Clifden and were lucky they had an opening that night. Rooms are not posh but really charming and the staff are warm and wonderful as all of the people in Cannemara. Favorite part of our stay there was the champagne reception the evening we stayed where they gave some history of the area, which was very fun and interesting. I only wish we could have stayed there longer.
Friendliness of the staff; welcoming by one of the owner's with champagne at 6:30p and tea at 4-5p. We loved receiving a map of the highlights in the area and the location in Clifton.
We didn't know about tea until the second day of our stay.
This was a fabulous castle hotel. I believe we had the best room in the whole building and faced the front lawn. The staff was so nice and I loved the fact that there was a meet and greet by the owner to give the history of the hotel. The restaurant was first class with a great menu and everyone went out of their way to make us feel special. The charm of the building was awesome. I would definitely go back for another visit.
There is nothing to write here because we liked everything. The only regret was that it was not long enough.
When we booked, we didn't realize we were getting a suite with a fireplace. It was our last night and a nice way to end trip. Rooms spacious, dining room nice and convenient. Food was good and good specials for those staying in hotel. Love the parrot - Gilbert who stays in the lobby and gets a lot of attention and will talk to you.
The overall staff was good except for some (not all) at the front desk, very unfriendly, no smiles, strictly business and did not make us feel welcome....very disappointed in that aspect of it.
Lovely castle hotel, nice staff at front desk. Lobby and bar and restaurant are well appointed. The room was outstanding. It was large and comfortable. Champagne reception in lobby prior to dinner. All nice touches. And Gilbert, he's just cool!
No WiFi in the rooms which was ok because we met some nice folks while sitting in the lobby area to connect. At breakfast the next morning, I witnessed the front desk staff personally handing a "dongle" to what they considered a VIP guest. This device gave him WiFi access anywhere in the hotel. That was disappointing to know some guests are treated better than others. *Tip, Ask for a "dongle" .
Friendly, amusing and beautifully located.
In a great location for walks.The staff were so friendly and the breakfast was sumptuous. A special rate (~ €19) for the 2-course dinner was excellent value. They even have a talking grey parrot, Gilbert. We had a talk in the evening about the hotel washed down with complimentary fizz and canapés.
friendly atmosphere of a family owned hotel
quite a damp, drain smell in the room, some parts of hotel were looking tired
All good, especially the staff. It had a lovely feel and setting.
The uncomfortable bed. Seemed to have two singles joined together perpendicular to normal, and was quote uncomfortable despite the mattress on top.
Setting and atmosphere
Brian the owners is certainly the biggest asset to the property. He is extremely personable, participates totally in the running of the hotel and satisfying the guests' needs. The food was exceptional - breakfast and dinner. The gathering in the bar in the evening was an authentic Irish evening, with music and singing and a good time. The room was very large and comfortably laid out. The property was well maintained but a few hidden areas could use attention.
The room could use a new bedspread and patching of some of the well used furniture. Do not take the Sky Road to find the property! Take 59 to Clifton and enter the property from the town.
Staff, food and location
Room no.30's bathroom could do with a refurb
Loved the room decor and views...
...wasn't as castle-like on the first floor as compared to other castles we stayed in. Felt more like a hotel.
the staff were cheerful and helpful. enjoyed music in bar, everyone friendly. dinner top class, service perfect.
spa bath did not work, disappointing, but didn't matter as the rest of our stay was wonderful.
Friendly staff, excellent food, spectacular surroundings, social evenings and sing songs.
