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.
Their was nothing to be disappointed about this hotel and very body was friendly and helpful
Restaurant. Staff. Location. Welcoming. Great location
Uncomfortable bed and pillows. Towels were old and tatty. Bathmat was badly stained and i wouldnt use it for that reason
comfortable, good sized rooms; friendly atmosphere; good food; enjoyable entertainment and fantastic situation.
The owner and the staf are very friendly and welcoming. Rooms are very lovely and comfortable. We really enjoyed music nights with delicious dinner and in the bar. We really relaxed in nice and quiet surroundings as well. Thank you very much indeed for your wonderful hospitality.
The friendliness of all staff and the variety of entertainment. The different choices of menu's. The atmosphere was great and the personal little things like the flags of each country on the tables and the photo's as momentums.
Whats not to like....staff were extremely helpful, the Castle was spotless, rooms were fantastic, our view was over whelming, we had a couple of meals, which each meal was better than the next one..... Abbeyglen has character, relaxation and fun all in one.....
Everything about the place was just what was needed fro a short break. Staff, Rooms,and general ambiance were excellent. The talking parrott was a treat.. When we arrived he spoke,whistled and i just could not believe my wife who said "He dosn,t do much"..what do you want woman for him to call you on his mobile???
The windows in the dining are are overed in cobwebs and could do with a lick...
Ambience, Friendliness of staff, meeting interesting other guests, location, sing-songs. live piano music
We enjoyed the complementary drink and talk explaining the history of clifden and the hotel before dinner. There is an intimate friendly atmosphere in the hotel, enhanced by the presence of the owner mingling amongst the guests.
We couldn't open our room windows due to midges..
Loved the room, very big and spacious, spotlessly clean. We were located at the back of the hotel so it was very quiet and couldn't hear other guests which is a bonus. The grounds and gardens are kept well and it was lovely to just meander around the garden. The staff on the whole were delightful and helpful. Breakfast was very good.
On arrival we were met by the most unpleasant, surly woman at reception, Carolina, who demanded to see our voucher, when I said we didn't have one she asked again if we had a voucher and hadn't our travel agent given us one. When I said we hadn't booked through a travel agent and had booked myself through booking.com this still didn't satisfy her, it wasn't until I asked her what on earth we needed a voucher for that she said don't worry about the voucher. We have been travelling around the UK and Ireland for 6 weeks and it is the worst greeting I have had anywhere, from small B and B's to hotels and this was the most expensive accommodation I had booked I certainly expected a lot more. As the first point of contact with Abbeyglen she is disastrous. I also witnessed her surly attitude with other guests upon their arrival so I know I wasn't the only person to receive her warm greeting.
Nice champagne reception; friendly owners and barman who gave talk on the history of the castle, great to get some info and advice.
A couple of the female staff were quite unfriendly and in fact the woman on the desk was quite snooty towards me on the day we left. I asked re a break down of the bill re food and she was quite blunt in her responses to me. The woman sitting at entrance to restaurant wasn't particularly friendly either. The two men who own it, paul and the other were very nice indeed and very helpful, welcoming. The bar man also. The food was good, however we feel presentation could have been better - I think this would make the customer feel like the food is even higher quality, for example if more exciting range of veg available with the steaks, or presented in a nicer way, not in white side dish - little things like this give the impression that you are eating very high quality food..deserts great :)
