I wish that I could write a more positive review of this hotel. Having lived in Ballina as a child, I returned with my husband and children hoping that it would be a really pleasant experience. It wasn't so at all. The leisure centre where I swam so many times as a child was tired and dated. I didn't mind...

Rooms and bathrooms are very spacious ...(bedroom no. 350 could be a wee bit cosier, as I had to ask for a lamp) I would definitely stay here again as the staff members are all so friendly and helpful.
