Guest reviews

  • Couple

    We were very happy with out stay we found the hotel excellent, but a little expensive in the current climate.

  • Couple

    Deirdre at the front of desk was lovely, really friendly and helpful

    The breakfast was disgustind, bacon felt like rubber. No beans were available without request and after waiting 10minutes on them they arrived cold and it was evident that they had been put in the microwave. Also the room was dirth under the mattress we found a pair of mens boxers

  • Family with children

    The staff were very friendly and always approachable. The lounge area on the first floor was a bonus - just off our room and we went there and played cards and talked with our children in the evening. Could not fault the spa/fitness room/swimming pool/sauna/jacuzzi - brilliant amenities. The hotel was close to Castlebar to do some shopping. I believe the hotel is geared to become more of a wedding venue. Michele Dunford

    It would have been nice if the hotel bar had something on, ie, live music (trad night perhaps) to get the punters in and add a little atmosphere. As the night life in Ballina seemed to be limited, we would go back to the hotel and played cards with our teenage children which is fine, but it would have been nice to go back to the bar and do a pub quiz or listen to a band or just someone playing a piano. It just needed some atmosphere as the bar was flat and nothing was happening in the lounge. Michele Dunford

  • Couple

    It area was lovely and quiet. The room was very big and very comfortable and the staff were excellent. I would definitely book this hotel again.

    Not enough pillows or towels in room.

  • Single

    A very clean, roomy and friendly hotel. A very relaxed and peaceful environment in which to relax yet well equiped.

    For international use, it lacked air conditioning in the rooms.

  • Family with children

    Seriously under staffed in the bar on the evening I stayed, but that is the only complaint.

  • Couple

    Excellent hotel, very clean, very pleasant staff.

  • Single

    The restaurant was ok but not as good as I thought it would be, for example the vegetables had no taste and the mashed potatoe was lumpy.

  • Couple

    Lovely staff, from reception to dining room, The beds were the most comfortable I've ever slept in,Definitely will return.

    The room was a little chilly in morning

  • Older travelers

    Hotel Ballina is verry relaxing. The rooms are spacious and modern.It is outside Ballina which makes it a quiet hotel to stay in.

  • Group of friends

    The staff were extremely accommodating with an early check-in so we could get ready for a wedding.

  • Couple

    Had a lot of hassle with the boking, which I booked online with I was led to believe the full amt was taken from my card, but on arriving at hotel was told it was not and I had to pay then, I was at a wedding and had not accounted for this, the staff were making phone calls, I had to make calls to my parents who booked for me, it was very inconvenient. A few days efore wedding I got three calls from hotel asking for confirmation of my booking, the third one was to say it was all sorted, (not) never book like this again, not happy

  • Older travelers

    The hotel spells luxury both inside and out, the rooms are spotless and 1st class,the resturant is spot on and the staff are both pleasant and courtious all in all a very pleasant stay and I would reccomend this hotel to anyone

    You need a car to get around but everything else was 1st class

  • Older travelers

    The Hotel is beautiful, clean, very comfortable and value for money

    Hotel is a good 3 miles out of town, not within walking distance which is the impression one gets by looking at google maps - taxi approx €8.50 into town.

  • Single

    good size comfortable room, definately set up for business traveller.
