    Lovely hotel with very friendly staff. Food available all day which was excellent quality. There was a lovely swimming pool and spa which we availed of. All in all we had a great stay for a reasonable price We will stay again.

    I was there for a wedding and loved the fact that they were able to take photographs inside the hotel and that we were at a good distance that you would hardly know that it was going on. Lovely airy hotel, very spacious in all aspects, entrance foyer, rooms, hallway, function room, bar, breakfast area. Loved the touches for the wedding reception, when serving the top table and the silver plate covers that were all taken off together and served at once. The service to all other tables was excellent, staff very friendly and loved the touch when the Bride and Groom went to the floor for the first dance, loved the 'White Bag Candle Lit shaped Heart' Didn't see it before. Highly recommend and enjoyed our stay.

    I would not say that I did not like any thing, but when we arrived at the Hotel, I was unsure if we were actually in the front or the rear of the hotel, the only thing that made me think we were actually at the entrance was the fact that the red carpet and baloons were out for the wedding reception. Maybe a large porch or stone entrance!!

    Customer service was truly excellent.

    There was a wedding reception on that evening and at 1am I could still hear their music in my room. This wasn't great as I had to leave very early the next morning and do a long drive. I would only stay there again if I could be guaranteed a room away from the event area.

    We were there for a wedding at Mount Falcon and so position was great. Staff responded to all our needs politley and effectively. Room service was excellent and facilities were clean and what they were descibed as. Whenever we needed a taxi reception were happy to phone them and they were prompt.

    Room was not ready when I arrived and when I returned early evening they had given me the wrong key card to a room that had not been made up!! Key Card kept failing, every time I left the room was a little annoying!Room service charge of 5.50 euros a time a little cheeky I thought!

    The rooms were exceptionally clean and tidy and had tea and coffee available. Large parking space around the whole hotel..

    The breakfast staff one woman in particular was rude and antagonistic. A whole host of questions were asked of me as if I was some criminal just off the road having an early breakfast. Instead of asking the customer for their hotel room card and or confirming their name and room number. The breakfast area was filthy and it was to late after watching the customer eating his breakfast then to tell them ""OHH I forgot the tomato sauce you asked me for 20mins ago" when I had finished then to laugh at the customer. I found this to be rude and unprofessional.

    Accommodation brilliant - clean, neat and tidy.

    Staff very anxious to clean the room - knocked four times before we booked out. Shower a little disappointing - hose kinked and knob falling off the tap.

    The staff are always the best to deal with. Valarie is always there to make sure your stay is the best. The food was so good this time staying. Its gay friendly which is a huge plus as me and my Bf go to many hotels and sometimes feel pushed out but always welcome at Hotel Ballina. Huge thanks again for a wonderful stay

    Close to Ballina town Easy parking Spacious

    I had not complaints, if to offer a suggestion, next time they invest in couches for foyer, get bigger, and more grand design, and it would completely uplift the very pleasant openess of the foyer.

    Curteous and very helpful staff, excellent leisure centre and great deals in the spa on weekdays.

    Bathroom shower curtains needed to be cleaned to rid them of a mildewy smell.

    The hotel was excellent. I really enjoyed my stay due to a buisness trip however I would also stay if in the area again. I need to be over in the area next year on business and will book in again. TOP HOTEL!

    We were staying in a room on the ground floor and had a bit of noise from the corridor - people walking past and the fire doors closing loudly,
