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.

Great hotel, lovely staff
The staff hete are lovely, always cheerful and friendly. Very close to M5 motorway,has a toll €1.90 for a car. Hotel is spacious. Standard rooms are large with separate bathroom with 2 washbasins, separate bath and shower. Toiletries replenished every day. Bed very comfortable not soft and not hard. Pillows on the firm side. Breakfast is plentiful and evening meal good choice and huge portion size, including starters, be warned. Parking is under hotel at no extra charge and always plenty of places. Good base for exploring.

A great hotel at a really good price and location. A real hub for country music and within easy reach of Galway. Food and service were excellent and room was very good. A real, unexpected find.

Poor1.0 / 5
The worst 4 star hotel I have stayed in!
We arrived to a broken glass entrance door which didn't give the right impression. The hotel decor is dated and smelt stale. The room wasn't ready even though it was passed 5pm - beer bottles were still outside the door, we had no towels, and there was a wet patch outside the bathroom. The room was badly lit and small. The aircon didn't work. There was no plug near where the kettle was situated, and some floor tiles were unstable in the bathroom. I paid more for this hotel than any others I stayed at in Cork, Limerick, & Dublin, but it was by far the worst. The duty manager was quite accommodating when I complained but she is let down by a lack of investment in the property.
