Good3.0 / 5
Good value.
We were visiting friends who live in Ballinasloe so we weren't at the hotel very much, however, preferring fresh milk to the Uth milk provided, there is a very good Lidl supermarket across the road, I requested a fridge for our room, this process, for some reason took two days, apart from that minor hiccup, this hotel is very good value and provides a little extra than other accommodation in Ballinasloe.

Excellent4.0 / 5
The hotel is nice but nothing special. They could use some upgrading but for the price, it's good for a quick stay. They seem to put more emphasis on the amenities then the actual rooms although we didn't use any amenities.

Time for fresh eyes
The staff were very friendly. In the room I had to move the kettle to plug it in as there was no plug were it was left. The heating in the room was very hard to figure out and the storage heater was very loud so we had to turn it off to get some sleep. Could do with looking at the simple solutions to improve customers stay.
