“Best hotel experience in many years”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 September 2009

We arrived very late in the evening but still were received with warm courtesy and given a choice of two rooms. The duty manager recommended one room over the other and he wasn't wrong. The room was so comfortable, quiet, and well-equipped. It felt like a suite!

The hotel is very smart but isn't stuffy. The staff were, without exception, courteous and helpful. More than helpful at times! In a country where service or service with a smile have been disappearing, it was refreshing to feel that our custom and presence were valued.

It's also quiet here, despite being busy. The guests at a wedding during our stay could party all night and yet weren't disturbing sleeping residents because the bedrooms are isolated from the bar and function rooms.

We didn't dine here (apart from breakfast, which was nothing special but good enough) so can't comment on lunch or dinner. However, we used room service and were impressed by the presentation.

Finally, if you like to work out, swim, or soak in the sauna, the hotel has all those facilities. Nothing amazing but functional, clean, and well-laid out.

We enjoyed our stay so much here that we can hardly wait to return to the Oranmore Lodge!

Just to let you know I've stayed here with my friends saturday 4th July and had a great time.

Arrived with a warm welcome and the manager at the desk even helped me carry my bags to my room!!!

We dined in the bar and had fantastic food and was served by a lovely barman that had great witt!!!!

We walked down the village for a few drinks before heading into Galway city for our night out... very handy bus near to the hotel to bring us in... cheaper than gettin a cab!!

Overall.... would definitely reccommend this hotel - wonderful staff, great food and well worth the visit - great value for money!!

We will be back again - Thanks Oranmore Lodge!

I stayed the night here with a friend while traveling in Ireland. What a nice place! The staff was very accomodating. The food and libations were wonderful. I would definitely return here when I travel back to Ireland.

This family run Hotel is in Oranmore and is conveniently situated near to Galway City. Their is a Leisure centre with all the usual bits It is clean but it could do with a few colorful Murals or drawings on the walls or ceiling.A few exotic plants would really set it off
We stayed in a family room which was 'roomey' and clean.The bathroom needs a bit modernizing To be honest we did n't eat at the hotel With family we found it a bit expensive
We usually wander around the city to discover new places,pubs and eateries which we did
We had a great fish meal at the famous Mc Donagh's fish restaurant.opposite The Quay's Pub in the city. Fish and chips Fresh from a selection of about 12 types cost about €7.There is definately a Pub or restaurant to suit everyone's taste in the area around the city centre.

Stayed here for 2 nights during the Connamarathon. The hotel was clean, well equipped and the staff were friendly and helpful. The rooms are very spacious and have lovely fresh bedlinen. Although decor is a bit dated the overall standard was great.

This hotel is an old resident located in a quiet residential area outside of the village of Oranmore and about 15 minutes from Galway. We arrived on a Saturday afternoon and were given one of two remaining rooms, located on the lower level. Unfortunately the hotel does not have an elevator so be prepared to lug your suitcase up/down stairs. The room we were given was very adequate, very clean. After driving for a good part of the day, we were grateful for anything. The hotel has a nice pub and restaurant. We ate two of our dinners there, one at the "restaurant" (which is just a room off of the main lobby) and another at the pub. Food was very good, plenty of it and always served hot. They sure love their potatoes in Ireland. My fiance's dinner meal included three different kinds of potatoes. The hotel also includes a leisure center with sauna, jacuzzi, and nice swimming pool.

I spent 2 nights in this hotel recently with my daughter, now aged 4. What a wonderful, relaxing experience it was - I would not hesitate to recommend this hotel to anyone, whatever the purpose of their trip.

First impressions on arrival; a lovely big building set off the road between the village of Oranmore and Galway city. Reception was bright and comfortably furnished, and there was a very peaceful atmosphere form the moment we walked in. It is often the case when entering a hotel of this quality that travellers with small children can feel very unwelcome and out of place; I have often felt under pressure to keep the little one absolutely silent at all times to avoid ruining the experience for other guests. That was not the case here at all, my daughter was given the same warm welcome as all of the other guests, staff members going out of their way to chatter with her and keep her entertained.

We were given a room on the ground floor and I was delighted with the space and comfort within. The bathroom was spotlessly clean and a good size too, with a powerful shower that blasted plenty of hot water out in the mornings. The beds were super-comfortable, with crisp white duvets and puffy pillows. With the curtains closed, the room was pitch dark and perfectly silent....if you need a good nights sleep, then this is the place for you! I was surprised to find there was a family with small children staying just next door - we hadnt heard a peep all night. The sound insulation must be very good in this hotel!

Breakfast was good, the choice was plentiful and the hot food was cooked to perfection. Nothing was too much trouble for the smiling staff, we felt very well looked after.

We used the swimming pool several times during our stay, my daughter being a bit of a water baby. The pool was smallish in size but mostly empty so not a problem for us. The changing rooms were quite chilly due to the ventilation - but this was necessary to keep the floors and walls dry, and ensured we got changed very quickly after our swim! There was a row of hairdriers for use by patrons, and even a set of hair straighteners for those with the time and the inclination, all kept hanging safely out of the reach of small hands.

All of this was great, of course, but the thing that added most to our stay and the thing that I cannot praise highly enough, was the friendliness of the staff. Not one person was spotted without a smile on their face, and as I said before nothing was too much trouble. The staff either really love what they do, or have been chosen very carefully, but it was so nice to be made to feel so welcome throughout our stay. From the man on the desk at the pool who remembered my daughters name, to the unseen chef in the restaurant who somehow knew on the second morning of our stay that my daughter was the guest with the strange aversion to parsley, and remembered to leave it off her plate, everyone in this hotel did their bit to make our stay as enjoyable as possible.

Stay here, its a really fantastic hotel with wonderful staff.
