Not worth the money
Posted Sep 3, 2009
We recently stayed at the Arch Guest House in Clifden, Ireland. I pre-booked the B&B 3 months in advance, and it wasn't cheap. I read other reviews which led me to believe the place would be great. We arrived, and like other B&B's situated right on the main street there was not ample parking, and you have to pay for parking on the streets too or you'll get a ticket. The location of the B&B is great, but the room was old, there was a blood stain on the duvet cover, & when I laid on the bed I heard the springs boing and literally felt as if I were laying on a wooden board. I asked to be moved but they were booked. If not for the fact that the place was pre-paid, I would have left. It would have been worth leaving even losing the money I suppose. Perhaps we just got the "worst room in the house." I can only critique what I know. On a positive note, the staff is friendly which helps, and there is a computer with internet in a little room free of charge.
