“Excellent when on a deal”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 March 2012

My partner & I have recently stayed at the Oak Wood Arms for 2 nights. We had a Boards Deals voucher which, ar €99, entitled us to 2 nights b & b & one 3 course dinner. I liked the hotel though my partner found the wood decor a little gloomy. It is old fashioned to be sure but I found it quaint. The hotel is quite sprawled out. Our ground floor bedroom was a long walk down endless twisting corridors. Our room was very big but, disappointingly, the bed was a small double. Difficult for a couple used to a super kingsize bed! Breakfast was good both mornings. Our dinner was from a very limited menu especially for guests on the voucher deal but was ok considering. Shannon really doesn't have much to offer but is a good base for exploring Co Clare. I'd go back if I got a similar voucher deal.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 March 2012

I got stranded for a few days before a flight back to the states and booked a couple nights here. I really enjoyed it. I had a large room, towards the end of the hallway, it was quiet, had television and complimentary internet, good sized bathroom with special toiletries. Unfortunately, there are not a lot of places to eat in the area, so I ended up eating at the bar every night. It was pricey, but tasty - and I feel like people come to that bar specifically because of the ambience. The hotel has been decorated in a "aviation" vintage/retro motif and it's really interesting to walk around and see all the old magazine ads, pieces of planes, ect. I liked my stay. It was clean, comfortable, and the staff was pleasant. I reccomend it - it's NOT the Ritz, but for the price and how cool it is, who cares! :-)

Room Tip: Ask for a quiet room away from the family rooms for a good night's sleep.

This hotel is very close to Shannon Airport, and it is conveniently located near to a mall and a gas station. The interior of the hotel is very clean and the rooms were comfortable and recently updated. Tasteful decorations are found throughout the interior. I stayed here during the week, and it was very quiet. All in all, I had a good experience at this hotel and would stay here again. There is a pub attached to the hotel, but I did not eat or drink there, therefore, I can't comment on this aspect of the hotel.

The hotel had a good location if you were flying into Shannon airport. There is no town as such in Shannon( a shopping mall - very small) but you don't have to travel far to see lovely scenery and surrounding towns. The hotel although large still has a cosy atmosphere, especially with decor and coal fire in the winter months. I stayed two nights with accompanying breakfasts. I found staff at the breakfast buffet more than helpful. I did find the reception staff quit curt but efficient all the same.

Room Tip: Perhaps ask on arrival. Seems like no view other than car park unless your on upper floor.
