    • A fully accessible apartment makes for a wonderful short break

      Reviewed 09 September 2019

      As a wheelchair user, I'm unfortunately aware that many 'accessible' rooms are anything but accessible. Hoteliers, please note: a few grab rails does not make a bathroom accessible (particularly when you are meant to climb over a bath to have a shower!) This was definitely not an issue in the Clifden Station House. I stayed in their accessible self-catering apartment last week and it was brilliant. The apartment was really accessible; it was spacious and both the kitchen and bathroom were very wheelchair-accessible. The staff were friendly and the facilities were top-notch (admittedly, I didn't try out the pool, but my travel companions did and they were impressed). The food in the nearby Station House Bar was great... we so enjoyed the food the first night, that we returned the following night and all ordered the same meals again (something I never do!). The hotel and self-catering apartments are only a short walk from the centre of town. Clifden is a beautiful, if hilly town. It seems to be relatively accessible, though you'd certainly need somebody to push you up those hills. The Clifden Station House has restored my faith in travelling with a wheelchair. It was a wonderful few days. (Thanks also for the milk, bread, cereal and orange juice that were left in the apartment. That was a nice touch and very much appreciated!)

    • An excellent 3 star hotel

      We are a mature group of 10 adults ( 5 couples ) and had a very enjoyable stay in August in the Station House Hotel. We were greeted at check in by the manager Ann-Marie who was very courteous and informative about the Hotel and the local sights. We were on a 3 night b&b plus 2 evening meal package which was very good value and the choice and quality of the food was very good. I must mention a young man called James who was an excellent Maitre D with a very good knowledge of their wines and very able, competent and pleasant. Considering there was a party of 10, there were no issues and we certainly will return again. Gerry Buckley

    • Enjoyable relaxing 2 night break

      Reviewed 05 September 2019

      We arrived at the hotel after a organised walk by the hotel to Renvile. We were greeted by the very welcoming mangeress Anne Marie who offered us a coffee which she organised and delivered in person with some biscuits. The room was comfortable and clean for our 2 night stay in Clifden. All the staff over the 2 days was excellent friendly and helpful which was a very big highlight of the stay.The first night we eat in the Station bar which is a short step over to the courtyard. We had soup and lovely brown bread and roast lamb as a main all well presented and taste was excellent. Over the 2 day stay all the meals were very good from breakfast to lunch on one of the days. One of the days we used the leisure complex the pool and they had a gym room with the usual machines and a separate weight room , this was a very good addition and proved to be the case with constant rain on one of the days and especially of you had children with you. We stayed on a thursday and friday night they had a singer and piano in the hotel bar when placed any request to entertain the audience all on the friday night there was a duo of two played all the ballads .We also visited the small museum next to the hotel which was enjoyable We would definitely return again and really enjoyed a get away and relax.

    • Rude staff

      Reviewed 02 September 2019

      Tried to book in with voucher and one of the staff was extremely rude to me on the phone. Voucher was to a value of 119 which our son saved very hard to get for us, but was offered 80 if I wanted to use it. She berated smartbox and for doing these deals. Needless to say I wont be staying there ever.

    • Did the job!

      Reviewed 30 August 2019

      Stayed 1 night with 3 kids. We were all in the 1 room with kids on camp-beds. They loved it but was all bit cramped. Wasn't major issue as only there 1 night. Building itself looks underwhelming from outside but has more character inside, albeit a bit tired in places. Internal fabric of walls/floors not great - could hear good bit from adjoining rooms. Lovely wee bar-come-library. Very nice and obliging barman, Jack - would go across road to get particular drinks unavailable in the small hotel bar (The other bar is part of the complex and is sited in the actual former old rail station - Had wander through it. Lots of old charm and character) Had some tasty local craft beers. Breakfasts were very good. Freshly made pancakes and low-fat milk option nice touches. Pool/Spa average in size and decor. Steam room could've been hotter/steamier. Top selling point of hotel is friendliness/helpfulness of staff. GM was lovely - helped look up and arrange next day's activities. All in all, did the job for 1 night, in what was lovely trip through Clifden. PS Should add, my wife would've rated it 4 stars.
