Unexpectedly pleasant hotel, with consistently friendly and helpful staff just outside Ballina. Seeing a great tribute band and having dinner made it very simple to have a fun evening without any effort. The hotel has a health centre as well and parking was very easy to find even when there was a big event on. Would stay here again!

Myself and my daughter stayed at this hotel for 2 nights recently. Can fault absolutely nothing, from Kristi the extremely friendly receptionist, and other friendly staff, to the beautiful rooms. We ate in the Restaurant for our evening meals and it was fabulous. Daughter really enjoyed the pool. My only regret was our stay was so short but I would...

Stayed in room 330, I enjoyed staying here, We went for a quiet weekend with plans to see Belleek Castle on the Sunday just. Ended up going to Ryan Sheridan on the Saturday night. Only thing I did not enjoy was the TV in the room and given that it wasn't used except for noise that's not really an issue.

My daughter and I went to Paddy Casey's concert in Ballina on Sunday night. We hadn't planned to, but we thought it was too good an opportunity to miss.
