Great hotel in Ballina!

Posted May 26, 2017
Pros: Everything!
Cons: Not much!
Location: I spent time with family, so not too knowledgeable about things to do in the area.
This was a great hotel, in a quiet location, with unbeleiveable service and hospitaltiy! Raphaella at the front desk went above and beyond. Just after checking in, my cousin called me, but the phone in my room was off the hook. Raphaelle came up to my room, knocked on the door to tell me that I had a phone call! I was amazed with her customer service - hotel staff in the U. S. would never be as thoughtful and considerate! The breakfast was excellent and the service staff in the entire hotel were smiling, pleasant, and wonderful! I am axious for my return trip to this five star hotel!

excellent hotel nicely located close to town

Posted Apr 22, 2017
highly recommend this hotel ....lovely building and facilities. pool sauna and stream room were great!! rooms very comfortable. only down side is that there was quite a bit of noise at night coming from the traffic on near by road and also from a generator or fan or something (near the leisure centre). However this may have been just me unable to sleep anyway. very minimal and not enough to complain about. For the cheap price we paid for the room the noise wasn't bad enough to ask to b moved or anything. breakfast super!!. overall great hotel. will definitely consider staying here again if I am ever back in the area!!

Stayed here for 4 nights in April, lovely people and spotless clean. Need a taxi into town if not driving. Restaurant OK but not quite up to standard of hotel but overall would definitely recommend.

Lovely hotel

Posted Mar 22, 2017
Pros: As above
Cons: Turn the heat down a bit, was very warm all over the hotel, not just the room
Location: within short distance to Ballina, also not to far to go to a beach or fishing. Lovely walks in Belleck Forest on the outskirts of Ballina town
great hotel, close to the town. very friendly staff. swimming pool very good. Excellant breakfast. Room lovely.Would highly recomend it.
