Excellent location and lovely people. Slightly dated decor and very clean and tidy. But for these prices the rooms should have coffee-making facilities and shouldn’t have the bulk soap/shampoo dispensers seen in budget hotels. So a good average score from me.More

Positives - good location in Clifden. Negatives - very shabby, in need of renovation, bathroom looked like it hadn't been upgraded in 40 years. Breakfast poor quality. Bed uncomfortable, VERY overpriced - I would rank it 2 star at best.More
