Group of us were working in area for two weeks this September and stayed in Connemara Lake Hotel. Two of us are vegan and the staff, particularly kitchen staff, were unbelievable. They went out of their way to accommodate us, putting on dedicated vegan food both for breakfast and evening meal. Hotel very comfortable and very central, rooms nice, warm and cosy. Also gave us an excellent group rate that included breakfast and evening meal. Couldn't recommended staff and hotel highly enough.
We stopped for breakfast to break a long car journey. It was one of the worst breakfasts I have ever had. It arrived out cold at first so was sent back to be reheated. The whole fry was a right off & was blatantly not freshly cooked despite the waitress insisting it was. It was tired, soggy and undercooked. The only edible part was the toast. The orange juice poured for a carton was wait for it €3.50! Never felt so ripped off for such an unpleasant meal. I left three quarters of my fry behind after sampling a few bits and feeling genuinely repulsed by it. We complained and yet all the waitress deducted from the bill was a side order of scrambled egg which I’d ordered for the kids (big wow!) She was less than efficient in dealing with our complaint which we really should have taken further. Her manner was awful and it was like it was a big inconvenience. The hotel should brief their staff properly on how to deal with an a complaint in a more compassionate way. Don’t stop here for breakfast!…
Stayed here with partner and two children, two nights two rooms B&B costing 480e. Hotel is old fashioned with outdated decor. Rooms were upstairs and hotel had no lift. Rooms were a mismatch of furniture although bed and bedside tables did match, rooms were clean and both with view of concrete walls and roofs. Lingering smell both in hallway and in both rooms, smelled like harsh freshener possibly used for carpet (was not disinfect smell) which was off putting. Hotel did not seem fresh or airy. Breakfast both mornings was ok. Checking in was confusing. Have been in couple of hotels at this time, The Connemara Lake View Hotel did not provide value for money and I would not be inclined to stay there again.
Stopped off here for a bite to eat mid week. Early bird menu was well priced and wide selections. Great place with lots of SD tables and very helpful. Food was tasty, cooked from scratch and not overly priced. Staff are really helpful and go out of their way to accommodate guests. No waiting for a table and the facilities were very clean. Highly recommend. Guinness is super.
Went here today for dinner , had 3 small children with us the youngest been 7 months . We ordered soup for starters and the waiter approach the table and didn't even give my daughter a chance to move the baby out of the way and the baby put his hand into the hot soup and was bawling, the waiter didn't even apologise , she had to stick the baby's hand into a glass of water. Then the mains came and my daughter got a hair in her dinner , i told her to complain but she was just so upset she left and went home. It was very off putting especially as we were trying to celebrate our grand daughters 5th birthday
