                    Nice location on the shore of Lake Corrib, short walk distance to Ashford Castle. Friendly and helpfull staff, good breakfast and restaurant in the evening.

                  • Group of friends
                    9.6

                    Wonderful location. Beautiful lodge newly renovated. We had a suite and it was really luxurious. Treatments were great in the treatment rooms. Really relaxing atmosphere and well maintained hotel.

                    9.6

                    The room was very luxurious; bathrobes, heated towel warmer, heated bathroom floor! It was very deceiving from the outside; don't judge a book by its cover!

                  • Couple
                    8.4

                    The actual place itself was fabulous, location etc staff were very nice.

                    The bar food was very expensive. I did try and get a package where dinner was included but the price I was quoted to include dinner was craxy. I felt it was very expensive and there is definetly better deals in other good hotels i.e the Ice house etc. I was also very dissapointed with the breakfast, I thought i was just average considering the bar food etc was so nice and what I have heard of the restaurant food etc. Also, I like a lot of people love a bath and none of your deluxe suites have a bath which is ridiculous so I had to pay another 55 Euros for a quay suit just so I could have a bath in my room. A bath in a room should be standard
