“Felt barely tolerated....”
Reviewed 23 September 2013

I just stayed at the Clifden Station House with a group and for the most part we all felt that we were barely tolerated by the management (the general staff was pleasant enough). They were no help at all when we had a problem and when the evening manager filled in as bartender he poured the most meagre drinks I have ever experienced. (I have never complained about that type of thing before but this was really obvious). These problems sound unrelated but indicate the general approach of the hotel.The rooms were average, relatively clean but nothing special...no great view. Breakfast was the same, not bad but nothing special. I would never return to a hotel where I felt unwanted.

Lovely hotel right in town in Clifden. Very nice room and good pool and gym. The food was excellent and staff very helpful. It is right in town and within walking distance of the very lively ( in the tourist season ) town centre. Recommend for a quiet getaway.

As part of a small group, we stayed at the Clifden Station House from Sept 6-8th. Check-in was easy and we soon found ourselves in our room. Room was spacious and relaxing. We were there mostly at night. The staff did a great job cleaning our room, and we were more than comfortable. The hotel restaurant was perfect for breakfast; the only meal that we enjoyed there.

Great choice for Clifden!

I'm not sure where some of these people stayed, but I and many others thought the Hotel was very good. Restaurant service was excellent and the food was very good, plentiful and imaginative. Toiletries and towels were changed every day. Excellent position for the little town of Clifden, and we were lucky with the weather!

Room Tip: We did have a room facing the main road. Ask for room away from traffic.

Stayed here recently with a group of girls. Not sure where else you'd get customer service like it - from one of the guys in the hotel making a few trips to drop us all down the town as there was torrential rain (and refusing to take anything bar compliments as a thank you!) to the porter putting on an early breakfast for two of us the following morning as we had to get the bus before 7 and walking us to the bus stop as we didn't know where we were going. Highly impressed.

We stayed for two nights with our teenage sons and booked a self catering apartment. This was an excellent choice as we were free to relax in front of the tv and open a bottle of wine in the evening. Also allowed us to dry cycling gear after a drenching. Deal we had included breakfast which was only ok - rarely find a self service breakfast which gets it right. Though staff were attentive and friendly they were very slow to clear the table of used bowls, plates etc. I cannot recommend dinner as it was over priced for v small, and v average food. Clifden is packed with better places to eat. We will stay here again because of the location and make better use of the facilities in the apartment.
