I stopped here for directions, and the hotel manager was very helpful in steering me in the right direction. I didn't actually stay here, but I wish I had -- it's a lovely hotel with great scenery in a remote, beautiful location.

This hotel is located an hours drive from Galway and an ideal base to tour Conamara. It's a small family run hotel in a beautiful scenic location.

Despite being stuck in the early 70s, this was one of the cleanest places we've stayed. You know that mildew in the corners of the tub? Not there! The décor is 50/60s, but the place is great.

The hotel was ok. Very friendly staff lovely atmosphere. But the rooms had no fan to get rid of the moisture after a shower. Leaving the rooms humid and damp. Food was ok, not great. Average hotel, lovely location. Not enough disabled parking also.

Stayed just one night with my partner and our little dog.. Nice clean hotel, interior needs refreshing but had everything we needed..bit pricey like for the standards you get. Lovely bar staff. Very little space around the hotel to walk the dog - not everyone although will see this as an issue 🙂
