We stayed at the Salthill Hotel this week for a 3night midweek break. Check in was very friendly and helpful (thanks Rachel) and two members of our group were relocated to a fabulous room nearer our room upon request.
Full buffet breakfast was available from 7-10am. Hot food frequently topped up. Tea/coffee/toast, lovely selection of yogurts, fruits, cereals etc. The seabass was a hit and the pancakes were a favourite with the kids! Plenty of choice for all.
The hotel had fantastic facilities, great gym, swimming pools and all accessories available for use such as arm bands, floats for the kids. The weather wasn't great one of the days so that pool was a godsend. Kids were well catered for. A little lounge area/waiting are next to pool with hit drinks and vending machines.
The bar was great, large and comfortable, again lovely staff. Huge tv for the world cup fans... (Major sighs when argentina won, betting slips thrown in the bin LOL)
The hotel itself is in an ideal location in Salthill. Bus stop right outside leaves every 20mins (no.401) takes you into eyre square and drops outside hotel again (10-15mins run depending on traffic). The promenade of course is a lovely walk any time you like or along the sand. The funfair is less than 5 minutes walk and opens from 12am-10pm. Hours of fun for all.
This was by far and away the best hotel i have stayed in in Ireland, far surpassing a well known neighbouring hotel in the area which charges a hell of a lot more for an awful lot less.
The general manager, i believe, Fiona has to be one of the nicest people I have ever dealt with. She was above and beyond helpful to me and I just can't speak highly enough of this hotel.
This will be our long term getaway hotel from now on when travelling in ireland. The have it all covered!
Thanks again for a fantastic stay!
