The Loughrea spa hotel is a very nice hotel worth the 4 stars, the bedrooms are gorgeous, beds are very comfortable. Disappointment lay with the air conditioning pipes and vents directly outside our bedroom, noisy and not very nice to look at!
However, the restaurant is an absolute disaster for service. The waitress on the first night was very competent and friendly and food was lovely. But the second night, we had to wait for 20 mins for the starter, then the mains came about 20 mins after we finished that, they then completely forgot about us, did not clear the tables, did not offer coffee or deserts. We gave up and asked for the bill which did not appear. When we went to pay at the till the waitress gave us the amount verbally, we asked for a receipt which was thrown at us. While this was going on a child came and asked for a serviette and the waitress snapped at her... not acceptable.
Breakfast was nice only that we had to wait 20 mins for sausages the first morning and the second morning, toast didn't appear until I finished my breakfast.
Staff I found were abrupt and unfriendly all to 1 very nice waitress on the first night who did her job very well.
