Hotel was difficult to find, only signposted from motorway & not from town. Room was very drab and we did not consider this to be a 4star hotel
Access from main road was difficult due to narrow entrance avenue. We arrived just as two trucks were trying to exit. Reception & Breakfast were outstanding as were the reception and dining room staff. There was a problem with the main bed in the room. This was brought to the attention of the hotel. We are a very mature couple (70+) who both suffer from serious medical conditions. The proximity of the hotel to the Galway Clinic where this writer was undergoing invasive test procedures was the main reason we selected this hotel. Our main disappointment was on bringing our complaint to light there was no subsequent feedback from the Hotel.
great value and top class service.
Great stay in family friendly hotel. Very good value. Would recommend.
Not too good at all. Definitely not a 4* , staff very inexperienced, food ok. Cannot cater for wedding and hotel guests at one time. If you leave bar to go to toilet you can come back to no stool, drink and money gone too on another night. Gave me back same drink even though bar man put fingers into it, picking it up. Breakfast area too small and a free for all, nom organization. Lucky to get 2* from me, never again.
Disappointing for a 4 star hotel! Expected better quality. Tap was leaking in bathroom, diner and breakfast were mediocre. But worst of all was the leisure centre experience. The small leisure area with pool filled up with noisy kids and instructors at 4 pm. Parents & kids sitting on the wooden loungers and half of the pool was blocked off for the kids, so no swimming or relaxing possible. Apart from a lovely massage, there was not much left of my relaxing birthday present; we left the place as we couldn't take the noise. Staff could at least have informed us.
I stayed here for one night with my husband and child on a bed and breakfast, 2 course evening meal basis. We had a really lovely stay from the pleasant lady on reception checking us in to the lovely room. The hotel was nicely decorated for Xmas, the bedroom was very clean and nice and warm when we arrived, only downside was that the heat went off after a while and the room got cold later in the night. the room also had a microwave, handy if you have young children travelling with you. We ate in the sunroom and it was a beautiful meal, very nice waiter and bar staff. Up and about the next morning to a lovely made to order full Irish. Didn't use the leisure facilities so cannot comment on these. My little girl had such a lovely time at this hotel that she cried when we were leaving and did not want to come home!! My family and I will definitely be staying in this hotel again. If you do not want to drive into the city then about a five minute walk from the hotel, opposite the Supervalu store is a bus stop which goes into the city centre at regular times, we used this service and it was a lot easier than fighting with the traffic into the city and struggling to find a parking space.
Lovely comfortable surroundings. Food & service excellent, with friendly staff. Easy walking distance of Oranmore, where there are good alternatives for entertainment. Definitely return.
We enjoyed a lovely break recently in the Oranmore Lodge Hotel. The staff were very welcoming, friendly and very efficient and made us feel "at home". We had dinner and breakfast with our package and the food was excellent. The hotel was packed and that says it all. We had a nice spacious, quiet room on request and it certainly was quiet and we had a very nice relaxing break and will definitely return in the future and will recommend it to others. A big "thank you" to all the staff.
excellent hotel food was excellent lovely staff nice quiet location would stay here again room was clean and spaceous pool was nice and clean abit cold for me but the kids loved it
I spent one night in the Oranmore Lodge Hotel. The staff were very friendly but the room was small and in need of updating.Breakfast on Sunday finished at 10am which is early for a weekend.
The night porter was excellent. We checked in very late on Friday 13th and he was very accommodating and welcoming. The breakfast on Saturday morning was very enjoyable. However, the fact that the breakfast is served only until 10am on Sunday morning is definitely a factor that would prevent me from booking this hotel again for a group. The breakfast should be available until 11am on Sundays. Finally, we spent up to 900 euro on accommodation during our weekend stay at the hotel. One booking needed to be cancelled within the 48hrs period and a full nights stay was being charged for this. I did speak to the Manager and she adjusted it to 50% charge, I still felt that due to the total cost spent at the hotel it would have been a good will gesture not to charge the 50 Euro at the end the day.
bedroom very small,number 318.one locker beside bed and mattress has seen better days.my partner couldn't sleep because of it.the window in the ceiling had light coming in at first light which didn't help either.the food was excellent though.couldnt fault that.
We had a lovely stay in Oranmore Lodge. The staff were very friendly and were very accommodating when we wanted to eat our pre-booked dinner in the bar instead of the restaurant. We also enjoyed spending time in the leisure centre.
***** 5 star
We really enjoyed our recent break. My seven year old son loved the swimming pool. The hotel was spotless. The staff were welcoming and courteous. The bedrooms were clean and well serviced. We loved the bar food and the breakfast was tasty and plentiful. This was our third and won't be our last!
very enjoyable and thank you
Would recommend staying here just mins away from the city and you can get a bus just outside on main road. Very large rooms and staff very friendly
This hotel was ideal for a couple with a young baby (11 months). The staff were friendly, courteous and very good at their jobs. They could not do enough to help. The room was lovely and had two double beds which was what we requested. Everything was clean and comfortable. The swimming pool is about 10 steps across the yard which I wasn't aware of but since it was so close, it was not an issue. Towels are provided at the pool which is great. Again, the staff in the leisure centre were very friendly and helpful. Food was delicious and the restaurant and bar have a lovely atmosphere. There were lots of other families there so it was easy to bring the baby to dinner. Overall, we had an excellent experience and would return. It is only 10 minutes drive for Galway city centre and about 15-20 from Salthill.
Excellent food friendly staff clean hotel I would go back anytime Thanks
Had a fantastic city weekend break with my wife at the Oranmore Lodge Hotel. Staff very friendly and helpful. Room very spacious and the beds very comfortable. Lots to see and do in the area plus only a short distance from Galway City where you will have good shopping plus a great selection of bars, restaurants / cafe's. Well worth it and I will be planning a return trip later this year for sure.
Great place to stay ideal location and a great deal!! Very cosy and great facilities bed extremely comfy and breakfast was fab! Would definitely stay again
Hotel room lovely and staff very helpful. Food excellent . The only down side is that this hotel could do with a little spent on decor. It's a little dated.
Lovely spot, hotel staff were very welcoming, rooms were nice and clean. There was a works Christmas party on the same night that we stayed, most of them were in the bar area before the party started and yet the barman always ensured that we were served in a timely manner. Can't remember the chaps name, but was very professional. Pool and Spa area albeit small was more that adequate and nice and quiet. Would definitely stay here again.
Great value, friendly staff and good food. The hotel is a bit dated but very clean.
Firstly I like to say on arrival I wasn't very impressed with the outside as it looked dated and gruby and in need of refurbishment. When we checked in the staff were very friendly and reception was nice. Room nice. Back oddly shaped/layed out so everyone wants to sit at one end were the t.v. is and the rest of the bar is empty. Food was very disappointing and we felt it was left overs from the luch earlier and the chicken was overcooked. It didn't help that they never changed the menu one bit for the following evening so you had to pick the same again which was very strange as most hotels would even change the menu slightly. Staff very friendly and helpful. Also very put out that on the Saturday night while having a drink in the bar we were asked to leave because there was a party of 200 people coming and the bar was reserved for them so we had to sit in the breakfast room. Not very comfortable. My husband requested an omelete on the first morning and was told they couldn't make him one. The fact that you have to leave the lodge to go for a swim is awful especially in the cold weather. Showers in the swimming pool were filty and never cleaned, hairs on wall and awful smell and no heating in the dressing rooms. Not a 3 star...maybe a 2 star.
hi, Stayed for one night in a family room. Positives: Receptionist (Tara) on check in very welcoming and helpful, nice room in a quiet part of the hotel which is what we requested, room had a fridge and a microwave which as anyone travelling with a toddler knows makes a difference to any night away!! Ate in the restaurant in the evening, lovely staff especially Bernie (think that was here name)and the food was fantastic, we really enjoyed it. Negatives: Hot water in bathroom was scalding hot, really need to have a sign up to warn you before you turn on the water, mentioned this to receptionist when checking out so hopefully they will resolve this. No heating in the room during the night, no matter what way we turned the thermostat we could not get the heat to work, as we were travelling with a very young child we did not want to call reception as to do so would have disturbed her sleep. Really busy at breakfast, breakfast was nice but it was crazy busy get down well before 10 to get a table. Leisure centre was ok as one reviewer has already said it definitely needs an overhaul. Overall my family and I really enjoyed our stay at the Oranmore Lodge and would return again, the staff were nice, the room was comfortable (apart from it getting chilly at nite!!) and we will definitely be back again.
Lovely hotel, good food,quiet bedrooms and very friendly and polite staff.
Had a great night in The Oranmore Lodge. Ate in the restaurant and the food was very nice. Looking forward to booking again. Only issue was the queue for breakfast, I would recommend going earlier then 10am.
Booked a 3 night stay 2 adults and 2 children for last week. On arrival we booked in rooms are nice and hotel lovely. However after using the Leisure Center which has cold showers and during the 3 day stay never got any warmer. We then went into the bar to get a sandwich as we had got lunch on the way down and were told that this was not possible as they strictly serve what is on the bar menu and no sandwiches. Therefore we left the bar and never returned to eat there for remainder of stay. Would have thought that any hotel would serve a sandwich!!!
my wife and i had a lovely time and would recommend the hotel to anyone we will definitely return Regards, Brendan Flood
Stayed here in October with my elderly mother. Right from the initial booking we were looked after really well. Tara at reception couldn't do enough for us. Our room was comfortable and extremely clean. The fridge and microwave were a welcome inclusion. We only ate light meals in the bar, but the service was good. I used the leisure centre for swimming and sauna in the mornings. 5 adults filled the pool really as we all wanted to swim lengths. Overall I thought the leisure centre could do with an upgrade. It's not very accessible for people with limited mobility. Likewise the hotel itself has a few steps which could be difficult to negotiate. However, we were offered an alternative room for breakfast if we needed it. As I said, the staff couldn't do enough to help. I'm just saying this in case it's relevant to other guests. It's a lovely hotel and I would stay again.
its hard to believe this Hotel is 4 Star. it really needs revamping in a bad way. Old, stale and fusty feel and smell to it. Bathroom very basic, and towels need replacing at this stage. No lock on bathroom door. Breadfast room could not cater for the numbers, felt sorry for staff who seemed under pressure. We were moved to the dining room for breakfast which I was quite glad of as the breakfast room was stifling and stuffy. Had evening meal in the dining room, food was excellent, but again room had a fusty smell to it. One issue which hugely irritates me and has happened in hotels before, on booking this hotel I asked for a large room as our group was grandmother, mother and daughter as opposed to 'traditional family'. My daugher e-mailed before we went and again requested this. We were put in to a small room with 2 beds!! Without unpacking my daughter approached reception and again made our request, pointing out the child was 12 years old!! Receptionist looked at her blankly and said 'you requested a ground floor room' NO WE DID NOT. We were then moved to a room with three beds. Sorry to the nice staff of the Oranmore Lodge who work hard and are reasonably pleasant but we will not be returning here.
Very lovely hotel and rates v good
it was as very good as good 5 star
Great hotel. Lovely staff. Nice food. Well worth a visit. Will go back for sure
Hotel staff very friendly, especially the two young men in the bar/restaurant. We stayed in a family room - two doubles which suited us, the hotel isn't as flash as some we have stayed in, but it had a fridge in the room that we didn't request. Kiddies pool and pool in general great for us, our babies are 2&3 and they loved it. Overall an enjoyable stay, no complaints, would visit again. Great location if you don't want to stay in Galway city, with a cinema, bowling centre, kiddies soft play area all within 5 min drive of hotel.
Beautiful hotel with lovely friendly staff and food was fab. Will definitely return again
Stayed at Oranmore Lodge April 2015. Room spacious, clean and convenient, Shower very good. Food; breakfast very good, dinner excellent. All the staff we encountered were above average; courteous and helpful. Lovely atmosphere. Absolutely no complaints, would recommend this hotel S & E H Meath
Stayed at the Oranmore Lodge with my Husband and daughter and booked through the Lidl breaks. The deal was one night B & B and evening meal for 105 euro as it was a 4 star hotel and pay for childs meals. When I went to reception the following morning to pay, I informed the girl at reception that my daughter did not have breakfast and as I thought I should not have to pay the 5 euro for that but she informed me that I have to pay it whether she had breakfast or not and that I got an email stating this. I told her I had not received any email and she insisted that I had and printed off a copy of what I should have gotten. I told her I had not received this and when I noticed that my email address was incorrect she just practically ignored me which is just pathetic. She certainally would not entice me to go back there again.
My Wife and two children, 9 and 6, really enjoyed our 2 night stay at the Oranmore Lodge. The staff were very accommodating and helpful throughout our stay. The rooms are clean and spacious with the added benefit of having a fridge in the room, very handy for keeping some drinks and snacks at the ready for the Kids. The food in both the Bar (lunch) and the main restaurant (dinner) was really good. Breakfast was plentiful and tasty. The pool / leisure centre area were just what the kids wanted, the staff at the pool were very helpful again. All in all a good, pleasant stay.
Enjoyed our stay lovely hotel nice staff excellent food nice leisure center couldn't fault it in anyway.
Lovely helpful staff, nice big room with plenty of facilities, brakfast very good
Lovely hotel, staff very friendly and the food was great. We had a lovely dinner on Saturday night a very good choice for breakfast on Sunday morning. We had a lovely big room, but it was dark and the furniture was very old and dated. It was great to relax in the pool on Sat afternoon and look out at the wind and the rain.
enjoyed the one night myself and wife stayed ,staff very friendly and meals were very good ,no problems .Fridge and microwave in room we were allocated was very welcome ,wish other hotels would follow.Allin all a good experience.
nice hotel but everything could be done a little bit better
The Oranmore Lodge Hotel was excellent. Friendly staff great service and super food. The pool was great. We were very happy with our stay over all. The only criticism was with the format of the childrenâ€™s menu in the restaurant my daughter is nine and Barney and Pippa pig menu board did not appeal . Thank you to the management and staff of The Oranmore Lodge Hotel
We have stayed here now on numerous occasions on the Lidl breaks, the food on the DBB menu is excellent, the rooms are clean, and there is a lovely pool. Staff are really nice and welcoming, and breakfast was good, what more could you want
My daughter (nearly 4) and I stayed in a family room with my mum also. We had a lovely 2 night stay with one evening meal. We found the hotel to be very comfortable, friendly staff, and great food, good value also. We made use of the pool, which was lovely, but needs some updating. Overall we really enjoyed our time in Oranmore, and would go again.
Excellent value in the Oranmore Lodge. A spacious, clean room, fine breakfast and helpful staff. This has been my second visit here and I've thoroughly enjoyed both, a little gem of a hotel that offers probably the best value to be had in that part of the world.
Lovely week-end in this hotel.Roomd big and spacious.Staff friendly food average.Breakfast ample . One let down lady at reception very unwelcoming and unhelpful. The hotel is in a lovely setting and has a lovely feel about it.Leisure center perfect . Will return.
Hotel was lovely as was the setting.Food average.One thing which left the hotel down was the lady on reception whether it was the language barrier or just her abrupt manner it left a lot to be desired and left one feeling as if they had done something wrong. Hopefully you won't need to visit reception with a query.Most of the other staff were lovely and helpful. It is however a lovely hotel and we will visit again.
My three sisters and I live in different parts of the country. We love to get together when we can and get away from our daily responsibilities. We were looking forward to a nice peaceful weekend. In a nutshell, this is how our weekend went: I couldn't believe there WAS NO ELEVATOR IN THE HOTEL, THIS WAS NOT IN THE INFO.I had before going there, I just couldn't believe in 2014 a hotel would have no elevator. One of my sisters is in remission from cancer and has difficulty with stairs, this was NOT a good first impression. We went downstairs for what we expected to be a quiet relaxing dinner. Boy, were we in for an unpleasant surprise..There was a first communion "party" in full swing.At least ten children were running and chasing each other around a large area.They were unsupervised, screaming (the noise was worse than ANY childrens party I've ever been to). We finished our meal in haste to escape from the bedlam and returned to the sanctuary of our rooms. We were just getting settled for sleep when A HEN PARTY RETURNED TO OUR FLOOR. The noise was HORRIFIC, doors banging, people shouting, we did not SLEEP UNTIL AFTER 4.a.m. We were exhausted on Sunday,and ANGRY that our weekend was RUINED by noise pollution. Where did this hotel get 4 stars?? NEVER EVER AGAIN.....
Very nice hotel, staff in every section was helpful, happy and considerate , we got a upgrade to the bridal suite which was very nice and cosy with the gas fire, needed after the weather turned into a winter rather than summer day, the food was excellent especially the fish dishes, the breakfast was a little of a let down, but quite ample all the same, would return.
Nice Hotel and kids enjoyed the swimming pool. The breakfast was fine but I thought the choice was limited and dining room very small. Also we could not get Wi Fi to work with codes we were given but apart from that enjoyed the stay.
Very nice hotel, food pretty basic, but tasty, rooms very clean, leisure centre nice as well. The only thing which I found disaster, was the activities on Easter Sunday morning for the kids. My son was crying coming back from it. Very unprofessional and I have to say very unfair for the kids who didnt get help from the parents with the activities. How come 6 months old baby picked up the stickers from the bar quicker than my 5 years old??? Other than that, everything was very good.
lovely hotel to stay in with very friendly staff.
Friendly efficient excellent food lots of hot water my kind of place.
The rooms are big ,bright and clean. The dinner is excellent, the hotel is worth a visit for the dining experience alone and that along with the staff made our stay enjoyable. Free paper with breakfast that has a good selection of hot and cold food. Close to Galway city if you want the bright lights or to shop till you drop. All round great experience. Would highly recommend it .
There was a lovely friendly atmosphere at this hotel. Great choice of dinner menu, food was tasty and serving staff were very friendly. Again, full Irish was available for breakfast and staff were friendly. Would definitely recommend this for family or relaxing get away.
We stayed two nights in March 2014 and were very pleased with the hotel. Service was excellent, the staff really efficient. The twin room with fridge, microwave and kettle was really nice. The leisure centre was top class and we especially enjoyed the jacuzzi. The location is excellent in close proximity to the N17 / N18 routes North or South and near Oranmore village. We used the restaurant on one evening and were very satisfied. There was a great choice on the breakfast menu. Overall, a very nice place to stay.
Visit was low season - beg March, not mid-term or other school holiday. Really enjoyed our stay, the family room was lovely, big and clean. Breakfast very enjoyable, dinners very nice - bar cosy and friendly. Staff attentive. We used the Leisure facilities, preferred to shower after in our own room as the shower was nicer in our room, slightly cramped changing/shower area, but other than that perfect.
Lovely hotel and friendly staff. Room was quite large and very warm. very pleased with our stay and breakfast was delicious. Hotel is old but very welcoming. Didn't use the leisure centre as our stay was short but would definitely go back. Lovely setting and a nice drive up to the hotel. We were greeted by a very friendly black and white cat which was a bonus for me. Really liked the ambience of the hotel.
We were a group of 7 women and we had the family room and a twin room. We had a thoroughly enjoyable weekend, such good value. Staff were very attentive and efficient. Food was plentiful, bar a bit packed at times, staff run off their feet. Would recommend
Stayed as part of a group, with children, for 2 night b & B, and 1 nights dinner. Found the staff in the restaurant, reception, and breakfast area superb, and very accommodating. Service in the bar area could be hit and miss depending on time of day, and who was serving. Leisure facilities were excellent, and had everything available in changing rooms, including changing mat and travel cot, which I was delighted with as I had a young toddler. Kids loved the pool, which we used both days. Rooms were spacious, and we were delighted to find not only a fridge, but also a microwave. We did find the room uncomfortably warm, we had to get a staff member to turn off the heat in the room with a wrench, and even then the room was still very warm.
Great hotel, perfect for a weekend break! not far from the city and the staff are lovely! the food in the hotel is delicious, we ate on both nights and enjoyed the scrumptious meals. its worth a visit
We had a great weekend at the Oranmore Lodge, the room was very comfortable as was the whole hotel. We had an undisturbed nights sleep with no noise even where we were at the front of the hotel near the entrance. The staff were all very helpful from the moment we arrived on Friday afternoon until we left on Sunday. Breakfast in the morning was a good hearty one with plenty of choice and the evening meals, one in the restaurant and one in the bar, were superb and well priced if paying separately ( there were good value meal inclusive packages available as well). We used the leisure centre on each of the three days and the facilities there were better than some much more expensive hotels we have stayed in, the pool was first rate and there was a well equipped fitness suite. My wife had the 'pampering', massage on Saturday morning and really felt the benefits of that. There was a small group on in he bar on the Saturday night and the atmosphere was brilliant with a bit of dancing and music tailored to the customers. The hotel is well situated close to Oranmore itself and a few minutes drive from Galway town centre which was a great place to visit. The free Wi-Fi worked well throughout the hotel and there were free newspapers supplied in the very comfortable lobby as well. Our weekend at The Oranmore Lodge was one of the best we have had in Ireland and a lot less expensive than others that were not just as good.
Really enjoyed our weekend in the Oranmore Lodge Hotel! Food in the hotel is amazing and the staff are very helpful! We will be back soon#
MY HUSBAND AND I STAYED AT THE ORANMORE LODGE ON DINNER BED AND BREAKFAST BASIS THE ROOM WAS VERY COMFORTABLE AND COSY THE FOOD FOR DINNER AND BREAKFAST WAS EXCELLENT THE STAFF WERE MOST COURTIOUS I CAN RECOMMEND THE ORANMORE LODGE FOR EXCELLENT VALUE . M.FLANAGAN
We had a wonderful stay at the Oranmore Lodge Hotel. The room was perfectly clean and spacious, the staff were very polite and friendly and the food was delicious. I couldn't fault it and would recommend to anyone.
Very disappointing...room was disgraceful even if had been advertised as a 1-star hotel...don't know if it was because we were a family with young children or because we were on a Lidl break that we were given the room we were but since it was advertised as a 4star hotel we were very disappointed..even with no expectation would've been disappointed..The room was freezing..even though radiators were on...bathroom was tiny..no bath...tiles cracked..insects in shower tray..shelf directly above sink so couldn't shave/brush teeth comfortably at all..no comfort/relaxation at all...Breakfast was ok.. On the plus side the staff were lovely& after emailing complaint on our return we were offered free night but as you can imagine doesn't appeal to us at all...Our room definitely needed a major overhaul especially if being advertised as 4star cos very deceptive.
we had a lovely 3 day stay, at the Oranmore lodge hotel.. it was very relaxing and the staff were so nice and friendly.. the room was very spacious and clean. also the food was top quality. well done to the chef !! There was very entertaining music on the Saturday night when we were there . we really enjoyed that.... I had a lovely few hours at the leisure centre which I found very relaxing, so don't forget the swim gear !!! the town of Oranmore was only a 10minute walk which was nice for a stroll after breakfast.. but there was also plenty of lovely restaurant's and pubs for your entertainment... We would recommend the Oranmore for anyone wanting a relaxing break and such a beautiful setting.. We hope to return again ..
Enjoyed our stay here. The staff were very helpful and the food was excellent with a quick service also. Wouldn't hesitate in returning.
Existent service. Staff very helpful and friendly. Good choice of food.
Many thanks for a wonderful weekend we just spent in Oranmore Lodge.Excellent staff and service we received
We stayed for two nights. Found the staff very friendly and helpful particularly the reception staff. Food was excellent. The room had plenty of space and was very comfortable. Restaurant and bar a bit small. We were disappointed that there was no music. Really enjoyed our stay and would go back. Very good value for money
We enjoyed our stay at this hotel. The food was very good and friendly staff. We will return again at some stage
I was very pleased with the hotel. Very friendly staff, and most obliging. Very clean. The food was a bit disappointing, one of my colleagues chicken was undercooked, but everyone else enjoyed the food.
The standard rooms in this hotel are very basic and I eneded up paying for an upgrade to a executive suite. Staff were attentive, although the staff in the restuarant seemed under pressure despite the low number of diners. Don't expect a romantic meal here either as the tables very bunched together ( hence the silence).There were complaints from others in the restuarant as to the length of time they were waiting for their orders to be taken, as stated above you couldn't help but hear it. Food was ok and portion size was good. The health centre was ok but the changing rooms were dirty and in need of a major overhall. None of the lockers were working so you couldn't lock your gear away. The changing rooms had no privacy and were visable from the pool area whenever the door was opened. Overall it was ok if you are on a budget but I would not recommend it otherwise.
no atmosphere, dust on glasses and bottles behind the bar,grubby bar, tables in dinning room very close to each other, no music in restaurant as the tables were so close together you could here every ones conversation.The staff had no personality, the food was very average,I definitely would not stay there again,No way is it a 4* hotel
We stayed for 2 nights and have to say the staff and service were excellent. The food was second to none. Compliments to the chef and his menu. No problem staying again.
I got a 'Lidl' break deal on this hotel. First,we travelled to Galway from Dublin and its worth bearing in mind it is much more straightforward to go into Galway and get a taxi for 15euro from the station to the hotel. We missed our changeover stop at Athenry to get the train to Oranmore,as the train literally stops for 2 minutes there. We would have had a 40 min wait and still would have been charged the set price of 15e per journey to hotel. Hotel was lovely, very warm,(maybe too warm) and clean. Friendly staff and average evening meal that was included. We paid 7.50 extra for steak which again was average. Wi Fi in the rooms is through a service called Bit Buzz and you have to register your information such as email and telephone number to use it which I didn't like but did so I could avail of the service. The pool is definitely not 4 star quality. It was shabby and outdated and had no private changing areas and didn't look particularly clean. The pool is not big and is 4'6'' in depth the whole way. The towels were very small and not good quality. The steam room and sauna are not too bad and the Jacuzzi was okay, but again I felt it wasn't well maintained. However, it was a nice break, the taxi service to and from hotel is reliable and fairly priced.
We spent the last weekend at the Oranmore Lodge Hotel. It was just lovely. From the welcoming receptionist, I believe from Germany to the lovely spacious rooms and much appreciated leisure facilities. Every member of staff we met was so friendly and attentive, even though they had a full house and were on the go the whole time. I would recommend this hotel to anyone who wants a relaxing weekend away and as it is a stones throw away from Galway City you have the best of both worlds. We will definitley revisit. And by the way our compliments to the Chef - dinner was absolutley gorgeous. Don't change a thing guys. It's all good!! Aileen.
Rooms were clean and comfortable. Staff were mostly friendly. Food was poor - don't bother booking the dinner. 4* is very far fetched.
enjoyed our stay ,great food and the staff were very nice and helpful
Towels were very poor quality and stained. Requested a quiet room and was given a room at the back of the hotel, road traffic very audible, asked reception if we could have a room at the front of hotel - bad idea, there are starlings nesting in the ivy, and the noise of them early morning and in the evening was just unbelievable. Mentioned it to the receptionist on checking out and she just apologised. Note for future - no quiet rooms during nesting season.
Food was excellent staff were excellent, Overall hotel staff and service was very good, No issues would stay again no problem
We enjoyed our stay at the oranmore lodge hotel meal was of a very high standard for the price we paid the leisure centre was lovely this was our 3 rd time to stay at the oranmore lodge and we will be back again I highly recommend this hotel
We were totally satisfied with all aspects of our stay in the Oranmore Lodge, this Hotel has very high standards in all dimensions and I give it a very high recommendation and referral.
Had a lovely night in the hotel last weekend. Food was great and room perfect. Didn't get to use the leisure centre. Thanks.
Great val)ue for EUR39 pp including breakfast. Room was spacious and very clean. We had ground floor room at the back (Rm10). No view to speak of but the upside was that the room was very quiet. Nice flat screen TV too. Bathroom was clean and my only comment would be that while half the bathroom is tiled up to the ceiling, the other half is painted with a dado rail. Wouldn't cost much to have tiled the other half of the bathroom too and would make a huge difference. The breakfast was excellent with range of cereals, muffins etc and a hot breakfast which was good. Staff very friendly and no delays checking in or out. Well worth the money. Didn't use the leisure centre but did look. Pool looks nice but only 17m. Gym looks very well equipped too. Reception area very nice. Carpets on stairs a bit jaded though.
We really enjoyed our one-night stay in this hotel. We received a friendly welcome on arrival. Our room was very spacious, clean and comfortable. I availed of the leisure centre and the gym was modern and well-equipped. We had a delicious evening meal in the restaurant. Breakfast the following morning had a good variety, although when I asked for poached egg and grilled tomato, the eggs arrived on a small plate, without the tomatoes! I feel the staff were under a little pressure as the majority of the guests seemed to arrive at the same time, and the breakfast room seemed to be a little small to accommodate the large numbers. Overall, we enjoyed our stay and would definitely stay here again in the future!
Never again, rudest staff I have ever experienced in the Irish Hotel industry. Save yourself some money and aggravation and book elsewhere, unfortunately review doesn't allow less then 1 star. Please note family rooms in the hotel consist of two double beds, and staff / management will NOT accomodate any changes.
A traditional, family run hotel. Stayed just one night with two children and it was lovely... Plenty space in the room and very clean and warm... Kids loved the pool... The bar is great with delicious food and the best pint I've had in a hotel in ages and breakfast also went down a treat !!! Staff lovely and friendly... Only downside was the pillows - flat as pancakes!!! But over all a very enjoyable stay... Not a high end luxurious hotel but very warm and inviting!!!
Lovely comfortable stay, well worth staying in one of the suites. Staff friendly and welcoming, would highly recommend & will stay again in the future.
nice quiet w/k away with family staff very pleasant at your service but not in your face apologies for noise boys loved the pool could have stayed all day breakfast beautiful loads of it PITY ABOUT THE WEATHER
Hotel was beautiful and the food was excellent.
Lovely hotel. Very friendly and helpfull staff. Great rate through the eircom deal. Would return to this hotel again
The hotel was beautiful and reception and restuaraunt staff were excellent. I am a coeliac and althought the soup was not gluten free chef made a special soup for me. . The best soup I have ever tasted. The dinner and breakfast were also excellent . We had an hot stone message highly recommended. The only negative we had was the heating in our bedroom was not working on a very cold weekend . When we brought to attention of reception they ensured we got a room that was top notch. Great service all round we will be back
Really enjoyed our break there. Food was excellent & staff were very friendly. Warm surroundings too. Room very roomy & comfortable.
everything excellent. Room very comfortable. Bar food was fantastic as was breakfast-great variety. Staff everywhere very helpful. looking forward to staying there again
I stayed here for 2 nights with my wife and 2 kids, the room we got was very basic, the main public toilets were very dirty........ cant see how this is rated a 4 star hotel, 3 star max. the leisure complex was ok the changing area are in badly need of a makeover. The only plus thing is the food and breakfast was very good. I dont think i would stay here again
Myself and my sister had a wonderful two day break in this hotel on the 5th of Feb. The restaurant staff was excellent and the bar staff and night porter couldn't do enough for us. I would recoment this hotel to anybody who are looking for a quiet and restful weekend or midweek break.
stayed in the oranmore lodge hotel on saturday night.hotel was lovely and well located however hotel was not very child friendly.got a family room which was down steps which not suitable for buggy.went for dinner in bar saturday night and any sound out of child getting funny looks.overall nice hotel but not for kids.
A lovely traditional Hotel with character. Staff are great very friendless and helpful. We got an upgrade to a suite which was definitely worth it. Spent New Years there Guinness Jazz band excellent great craic and dancing, the hotel gave everyone a glass of bubbly, party hats and blowers.....I hope to be back ... Thank u
As always we had another lovely stay were the bar man always remembers your name and room was lovely and clean.
I stayed with a friend, we were attending an event over the weekend in Galway City, only 10 mins drive away and â‚¬15 in a cab, Twin Room was great... two double beds, extremely comfortable. The Room was very clean and lovely and warm. Breakfast was fantastic, freshly cooked and service was wonderful. I would definitely stay here again. :)
stayed for couple of nights with two kids had a lovely time, very quiet at night, food was lovely and kids loved the pool, rooms were very clean and warm, staff were very friendly would stay again
Extremely disappointing and insulting for lidl break customers.. lidl customers offered substandard rooms and charged extra for adequate rooms.We were allocated room 309. The first thing that hit us was the damp musty smell in the room. Obviously this also occurred to the hotel because the window had been left open to air it. Therefore the room was absolutely freezing. the single radiator in the room was at best tepid and as the ceiling was appproximately 16ft high, the room was never going to heat. The en suite had no radiator or other source of heating. When we complained, an electric heater was supplied but with no reference to the noxious smell. When we complained further, we were offered another room but it was explained as this was a lidl room, there would be an extra charge. We were quoted 20 euro but upon check out this turned out to be a nightly supplement. Went for bar food during a hail shower and the dining room roof leaked. To call this a four star hotel is a joke. Avoid avoid avoid !!!
This hotel was just great really enjoyed my stay,the staff made you feel right at home and could not do enough, if im ever in galway would book into oranmore lodge.
Fantastic weekend. Staff were so very nice, helpful and pleasant. Food was fantastic with a varied selection. One great thing about this hotel it did not limit the central heating which so many hotels in Ireland that I have stayed in are currently doing. Would recommend it to my friends and family.
Lovely hotel but doesn't rate as a 4*, no little bottles of shampoo etc in the bathroom, no extras at all in the room, missing the luxury element but everything else was great. Great staff, great food, very clean and comfortable and very short drive to Galway. Very helpful staff and overall very very good to stay. However if you are looking for more luxury not the ideal place to stay.
My family and I taught it was a very basic Lodge very broke up with small dining rooms and bar area a bit away from lobby area. The staff were quiet helpful. The leisure centre was top class and staff there were very friendly. The beauty treatment I received was great and the lady was very nice. Food was good but on the expensive side for the times we are in at the moment. Overall it was an ok experince.
everything was great: kind & friendly people, decent, clean room, good swimmingpool, the only 'remark' I can make is about the breakfast, the fruit salad was not really nice and there were not a lot of toppings to put on the bread (no cheese, jam, chocolate...), but this is rather a detail, we enjoyed our stay a lot!
The rates offered by the lidl breaks made this a very affordable break. The food in the restaurant was excellent but the best feature of this hotel is the staff. It may be a few years older than some of it's neighbours but it has a truly homely welcoming ambience which is a rare thing to find. I will certainly be returning.
Not of four star standard, bed was very small, hair dryer was broken, some staff friendlier than others. Wouldn't stay again.
The lodge is quant, The staff at the leisure centre were most helpful and courteous. The food was tasty and there was a nice friendly atmostphere in the bar.
We stayed here for 2 nights mid week. Cannot understand why the hotel has a 4 star rating. The room was very basic and there are no lifts in the hotel at all. So for a disabled person it's a no no. There were bar food menus in the room and on the second day we went to have some food only to be told that there were only sandwiches and this menu was not valid. The first day we got there we went to the bar and there was no bar man/woman. Ten minutes later I went to reception to enquire and was told that there "must be nobody there". Only for another staff member overheard the conversation and got us drinks we would have gotten none! The food in the restaurant was nice but nothing spectacular, again however on the first night after sitting down for our reserved time, I had to go to reception again to get someone to come up to take our orders! I'd say this hotel is a much better place to stay in when it's busy in the summer but I will not be staying there again to find out. Overall the staff were fine though and as a basic stay it's fine but it should be rated as 3 star at maximum.
lovely hotel, stayed for 3 nights with our 10 year old and 8 year old daughters. Great to have fridge and microwave in the family room. Breakfast was great. The only downside was the swimming pool, it was too deep for our children, the water was way over their heads, as they can not swim confidently. The baby pool was too shallow for them. But on the whole, we loved the hotel, staff were really warm and friendly.
fantastic! enjoyed every minute of the break. It was organised at the touch of a button through Lidl breaks. Accommodation great and aboveall very reasonable thanks again to Lidl particularly in these hard economic times for making it possible to get a break away at an affordable price. I will book again with you next month and have recommended it to others.
We found the hotel very comfortable and relaxing. All the staff we met were very helpful. We would recommend this hotel as it was so close to Galway.City.
Lovely Old Hotel. Good Feeling from time we entered the hotel. All staff were friendly and helpful. Food delicious. Would love to return some day.
Myself and my sister and a friend stayed here for one night. We found the hotel to be very clean and staff very pleasant. The food was beautiful and we had a lovely fire to sit beside. What stood out for me was the waiting staff. They were so nice and really funny. Would highly recommend this hotel.
we had a lovely wk end break very relaxing hotel and lovely staff
we had a lovely stay in this hotel stayed in a family room plenty big for 4 people, food was lovely great choice, leisure centre was lovely all in all had a lovely stay.
The hotel was clean, the food was good and the staff were friendly but I wouldn't stay there again. There were only little things but they bugged me. We had a family room and the door couldn't be closed from the inside and there was only a chain lock on the door at waist level which meant that my 2.5 year old could open the lock and the door. We had to sleep with a chair up against the door. You had go outside the hotel to access the leisure centre which is a pain especially if it's raining. I first went to the leisure centre to enquire if they had a tampax machine and the assistant advised that they did. When I came back down with my son to use the pool the same assistant told me that the machine was out of order and to try the one in the hotel. Back to the hotel. Money in the full machine, no tampax came out. Back to reception to see if they had keys etc. Had to drive to local supermarket. Back to the hotel to finally use the pool. They had painters in in the leisure centre and you had to change in the bathrooms. The pool area was warm but the changing area was freezing. The booklet in the room stated that rom service was until 22:00. When I rang to order I was told that it finished at 18:00. I explained re the room booklet and was told they'd have to ask in the kitchen and they'd let me know. Sandwhiches were later delivered to the room.
We stayed in room 208. It had 2 double beds,both just about big enough.The shower was over a narrow bath. The towels were small and hard. Nothing about this hotel makes it a four star other than the service from the bar staff,one of whom was the owners son.
This is a very lovely hotel. Rooms clean spacious. Staff friendly, this is a very very run and kept hotel we had a very enjoyable stay, just a few minutes walk to the village, we must common on how good the food in the hotel was - it was very good - we would recommend this hotel.
Thumbs up! Stayed for the weekend with our almost 1 and almost 3 year old boys. Bedroom was a good size for the 4 of us. Meals were really good...great selection for breakfast and dinner menu was gorgeous. Staff were really helpful (2 of the ladies were especially wonderful by entertaining our youngest while we had our dinner!). The pool was a handy distraction when weather wasn't great. Good location for driving into Galway/Salthill and just a 10 minute walk away from Oranmore village where we had a really good meal in the Coachmans. The bar looked nice - we didn't get to use it - but did manage a drink in the foyer (thanks to baby monitor app on phone!!).
Great hotel, lovely staff that went out of their way to ensure our stay was comfortable and the hotel had a lovely relaxed atmoshere.
Myself, husband and son were very happy with the Oranmore Lodge. The location is great, as is the hotel itself. The staff were efficient and friendly. We loved the leisure centre, our sons swimming prowess definitely improved! We hope to be back,
Loved it..the children were delighted with the swimming pool..the food and service was second to none.We will return here for a longer stay the next time..well worth it.
We had a lovely relaxing stay in this hotel, staff very friendly and helpful, gorgeous food, rooms very comfortable and clean, great value, will definitely be back
My 2 children and I have a lovely stay at the Oranmore Lodge & Leisure hotel. The food was lovely, staff were very friendly and the hotel was a pleasure to stay in. I will definitely be revisiting this hotel in the future. Carmel.
Once again anothe lovely stay I wouldn't stay anywhere else very clean rooms and friendly staff wonderfull food home away from home!!
A nice old style hotel, clean & orderly, staff were very friendly and helpful. especially the girls at reception who were wonderful with our three year old. Breakfast was great, plenty on offer. Microwave and kettle in room. The bath was lovely, fills really quickly and plenty of hot water available. Unfortunately our clever little girl could open the chain lock on the door so had a tendency to leave the room if we weren't watching. The leisure facilities were great, nice size pool, lovely warm Jacuzzi and not too busy. The location was great, close to very scenic area of rinville and maree. Lovely for a drive. and only 10 mins from the city centre. Highly recommended hotel.
i very much enjoyed my stay with use the staff were very friendly and helpful. would stay there again. thank you 4
excellent hotel well worth staying in when visiting galway. Convienent to city and as a base for touring. Hotel itself is well laid out, rooms spacious and kept very clean - made up each day with fresh towels etc. Staff are very efficient and friendly - applies to all staff reception,dining,bar and housekeeping. One of our party in wheelchair and staff did best to ensure his stay went well. Had dinner on 2 nights in hotel and have to say it was excellent - same applies to breakfast- Bar staff very efficient etc. All in all would have no hesitation in recommending hotel to anyone.
the hotel was clean food excellent and service top class especially from the maltesse waitress
While I know we booked through lidl breaks which was great value, I really did not expect to get the bedroom we did. It was in the old part of the hotel over the bar and had not been renovated in a while. The bed was like one which folded down so had cupboard effect around it! Very spacious but lacking character! Bathroom v basic. Shower tray grubby. Reason was....no water! In fairness they moved us to one of the newer rooms which were really nice. Pity they forgot to take the sambo out of the fridge after the last guests about a week before! However staff in restaurant were nice and food good. Great music and atmosphere in bar.
stayed friday 6th room big and bright. Restaurant staff excellent friendly and very efficient. Food was way above average . Breakfeast was lovely would recommend this hotel and will stay again . Moyrus
We (2 parents and 4 boys aged 8 to 14) stayed for 2 nights at the Oranmore Lodge in two adjacent rooms and enjoyed every minute. After having been in bland modern(ized) hotels elsewhere, it was nice to be in an old-fashioned building that retains much of its charm and atmosphere whilst offering all mod cons. We much appreciated the free access to the swimming pool and leisure centre, it was great for the boys to go for a swim after sitting in the car the whole day driving from Dublin on the first day resp. touring Connemara on the second day. The hotel staff were amazing and very helpful, they took good care of us and when one of our sons started to suffer from an infected tooth at 10 pm, they were able to help and direct us to a nearby dentist early next morning. The rooms were spacious and comfortable, the food was very good - my husband had fish on both evenings and said it was cooked to perfection, though the accompanying dishes were once overcooked and the next day slightly undercooked (but then, cooking is an art, not necessarily a reproducible science). Breakfast was excellent and, like dinner, plentiful. We very much enjoyed our stay and will definitely return when we next visit Galway, especially since Galway city is a mere 10-minute drive away. Many thanks to Mary and all her staff!
Very enjoyable stay. Lovely family orientated hotel. Accommodated our special needs son very well. Highly recommended. Many thanks
We really enjoyed our stay - the staff were excellent and really helpful. The hotel is dated in terms of the decor etc and it is a pity there is no link between the hotel and the leisure centre. The front of the hotel could do with freshening up - even if the car park was re tared and the place cleaned up and plants etc cleaned up this would make a huge difference to the place.
found this hotel to be very basic could not understand why it is rated 4star as the bed was very hard and not at all comfortablein fact it felt like a very low quality bed.The food was very basic the bread was dried out as if it had been sitting out for too long on the table over all it was not a very pleasent experience for myself and my husband as we were celebrating our wedding anniversary, we definitly will not be returning
Really enjoyed our stay. Rooms were satisfatory - just what you need for a two night break. Staff very frendly, and helpful. Breakfast, and bar food, very good. Everyone enjoyed the leisure centre as well. Great access to Galway city - only 10mins drive away, and to motorway - very easy to find hotel. Overall, an enjoyable stay.
My Mother, Sister and I stayed in a triple room for two nights. Our first impression of the hotel when we walked into the foyer is that it could do with a nice new carpet or some nice wood floors to brighten it up but still keep it's character. We were also amazed that there were no lifts whatsoever as my Mother is just recovering from a knee op and I noticed a lot of older people struggling to get up the stairs. Obviously, people with disabilities would have to hope that there are vacant ground floor rooms if they want to book this hotel. Very pungent smell also on the corridors which seemed to emanate from the carpets. All that said, the staff were absolutely outstanding and could not do enough for us. They really deserve credit and I think the hotel will get a lot of repeat custom solely on the back of the fantastic customer service. Credit must definetely also go to the chef!!!. Food very tasty and plenty of it. The chef never gets enough recognition as they are behind the scenes but the food really made the weekend. I hope all the staff are being paid well for their efforts!!!!. Our room was functional and clean and at least we could make tea and coffee. Could have done with more towels though. Beds very comfortable. Overall, even though very unimpressed with smelly old carpets throughout the hotel, my family and I said that we would definetely return due to fantastic staff and food.
I was very disappointed with the standard of this hotel. I'm very curious as to how it achieved a 4 star rating. The room was horrible, the TV reception was very poor and couldn't be fixed. Ended up leaving the hotel after 10 minutes and booked into the Loughrea Hotel instead. This was another 4 star hotel only 20 minutes away and the difference in quality was massive.
We had a lovely weekend in The Oranmore Lodge Hotel. The Staff were very helpful. The food was excellent. Leisure centre was great. It is so close to Galway city. Free parking. I would definitely go back.
Great Hotel, great staff, fab food, will be back.
We had a 2 night stay,the staff were very nice & dinner was lovely.Our room was big bright & spotless,but the bed was like a slab of concrete & the pillow like a brick. We were dissapointed that there was no music & hardly any people in the bar on Sat. night even though there were a lot of guests staying in the hotel. This is not a hotel we would ever go back to. Marion.
We had a very enjoyable mid term break. The hotel was busy which was good to see and added to the atmosphere. It's tastfully decorated and cosy. The staff are really nice and pay special attention to children. The room was spacious and clean. We used the gym and pool facilities which were great. They provided great breakfasts with a huge range of food for all tastes. I would recommed a stay here especially when you get a great deal with Lidl.
well worth a visit great break for the mid term for the family. lots around to do with the kids. hotel staff very friendly and helpful thanks very much
We were very disappointed with the standard of the hotel. It certainly wasn't a 4* room that we got. Perhaps we got a sub-standard room because it was booked through Lidl Breaks. Also around the floor of the ladies changing rooms in the leisure center their was some sort of fungus-mushroom growing. Certainly wouldn't return or recommend!
Our first impression of the decor of the hotel foyer and room was deceiving of the quality of the overall stay as both areas are in need of modernisation. However the warm welcome we received at our evening meal in the restaurant and again the following morning at breakfast and on check-out was lovely. The quality and portion size of the food was excellent so although the hotel is in need of modernisation it more than made up for this in these other areas. Our room consisted of two double beds so both our children had to share a bed, a downside to be warned of if they are not used to this at home. We did not use the leisure centre, had a look in and the pool appeared to be small but had a good seperate baby pool attached.
VERY NICE HOTEL WITH VERY FRIENDLY AND HELPFUL STAFF. EXCELLENT FOOD AND COFFEE. THE LEISURE CENTRE IS IN NEED OF MODERNISATION THOUGH AND THEY NEED TO TURN UP THE TEMPERATURE IN THE POOL. THAT SAID, I WOULDN'T HESITATE TO GO THERE AGAIN
We stayed 2 nights and overall found the stay very enjoyable. Our room was lovely, however we could have done with more towels (2 hand towels and 2 pretty small bath towels for 2 adults, 1 teenager and 1 child). We had our evening meals in the bar both nights and the food was excellent. Really big helpings of everything and the bar staff and reception staff were very friendly. We would definitely stay in the hotel again.
Hotel Oranmore Lodge had very comfortable rooms and we really enjoyed the leisure centre facilities. We had a fabulous dinner in their dining room with lots of choices for starters and main courses. The Staff were very helpful and friendly. I was sorry I did not bring my sat nav with me because when we drove to Galway city there were no signs for Oranmore on the way back!!
Lovely hotel and staff were great it was real pleasure to stay and look forward to stay there again soon. Five star many thaks to the staff who made us feel so welcome.
very friendly and helpful staff,food good room good
excellent two days, freindly and helpfull staff, within walking distance of Oranmre village, we would have no hesitation in recomending a stay here.
It was the nicest hotel I have stayed in for a long time, the staff were really lovely and very helpful. It was very child friendly. The food was amazing, can't wait to go back again. The lidl breaks are so reasonable I would really reccommend them.
Nice hotel, great location,staff friendly, would stay again.
We had a lovely stay. The food was fantastic and the staff made us feel very welcome. We will reccommend this hotel to our friends and family. Thank you. Miriiam.
To be honest the hotel room was good, as for the dining room for the evening meal it was cold with a smell of damp in the room, there was a breeze coming in through the window and it closed... the food we got for the evening meal was just OK the starter was lovely but the pasta and chicken seemed to have been heated in a microwave because the chicken was tough the the edges of the pasta were all dried up and hard. It is definitely not a four star hotel as it says on the website, it may have been some years ago but not now. Was disappointed overall in the stay here. *
7 members of one family stayed at the Oranmore Lodge Hotel on Sat Nov 19th 2011 on a B&B& Dinner basis. It was fabulous. Absolutely spotless, friendly irish staff, wonderful food, lovely leisure centre.It is only a few mls from Galway city and the shopping in Galway is excellent. Couldn't have asked for anything more. Will definetly return.
We were not overly impressed by te hotel. The interior standard was not what I expected from a 4 star hotel. We ate in the hotel one night and found the staff te by lackadaisical with ordering it took 20 mins for someone to take our order even though there was only one other table in use. The food was also under par with the steak being over cooked chicken under cooked and the potatoes also under cooked. In terms of helpfulness when i asked reception could I have some ice an glasses brought to the room i was advised to go to the bar. Overall it was not the bet hotel experience I have ever had. And could not see myself returning to the hotel.
Hotel staff were very friendly and helpful food was excellent Would have no problem recommending this hotel for a break
enjoyable stay, rooms clean & well appointed , nice size too. Staff very friendly and the food was excellent. The pool ect is great, clean and nice and warm. Very friendly staff and staff take pride in the place, thanks again we will be back..... Murphy family Louth ( mid term brake Nov 11)
Myself and my family stayed in the Oranmore Hotel for three nights accommodation at Halloween. Given the bad weather the swimming pool was the holidays saving grace. The pool is spacious and clean and has a kiddies pool which was great. It also has a Jacuzzi, Sauna and Steam room and small but adequate gym which we could avail of free of charge. The hotel is clean and the staff are friendly but were run off their feel when we were there which led me to believe that they were understaffed. The price paid for the three nights was very good. However I do not believe that the hotel is a 4 star hotel but more of a 3 star. I am not sure what makes up the guidelines for the star ratings any more or whether the ratings requirements dropped. Rating is 3
Pros: good food, friendly staff, spacious, well equiped, comfortable rooms, great leisure centre Cons: bar is a bit pricey and decor is a bit dated what more can i say
stayed for one night b&b and dinner excellent meal . Room had two double beds nicely decorated. It only took 1 hour 45 mins from dublin . and we were close to do shopping in galway. Breakfeast was nicely laid out and the staff were very friendly could not fault our night. Would stay again. 4 stars
My husband and I recently stayed here on the dinner, bed and breakfast deal. Check in was efficient, our room was huge, clean, warm and very comfortable. Our meal in the beautiful dining room was exceptional - great menu, delicious food and very generous portions.. could not fault any part of it. Waitress was friendly and efficient. Have stayed in several hotels on the lidl packages and the food here in Oranmore Lodges was as good as any we ve had anywhere. .5 stars. We will be returning in the near future. E and G
I stayed in the Oranmore lodge with my two sons and mother for one night for dinner bed and breakfast. I found the hotel really nice and the food within the meal deal was exceptional. Not the usual hotel food, beautifully presented and plenty of it. As it was a sunday night, the breakfast the next morning was cooked individually and not buffet style, therefore it was nice and not with cripsy bacon. I would like to give exceptional praise to Patrick, who, as it was a quiet Sunday night, was working on the reception and in the dining room, he made myself and the boys most welcome. The pool was a fantastic addition for the boys, with the only downside in that you have to walk out side to it, and the changing rooms were a bit chilly. I would definitely like to return, maybe a romantic getaway.
Stayed here recently and was very impressed. Friendly staff, lovely warm atmosphere and nice rooms. Great leisure center and lovely bar / restaurant. Really nice selection for breakfast which was included in our great price! About â‚¬15 in a taxi to Galway city but worth it for the saving on the room.
What a lovely hotel, great food, very clean and friendly staff will be back again . The location is within a short walk from the town centre and bus stop into Galway could not fault this hotel. Muriel
Really nice hotel, was only a flying visit and I wish I availed of their leisure facilities, they looked splendid. The restaurant only opens till 9 and is quite pricey and since I was on a budget I didn't get to see if it was worth the price.
Hotel and staff where great. Brilliant leisure centre. Breakfast brilliant no panic and still plenty of food available at 10am when about to finish. Had a great stay Highly recommended
While I think the Lidl breaks are great value for money, I did'nt think the Oranmore Lodge Hotel was up to four star standard. The bed was very uncomfortable and needs a new mattress - I was glad that i was only there for one night and there was a lack of toiletries The hotel in general needs a refurbishment as it is dull and not very inviting. I will not be returning to the Oranmore Lodge but hope to try some of the other hotels on the Lidl list.
great hotel and great staff. just booked it the day i was going and it far exceeded my expectations. lovely quiet hotel and with easy access to the city. def going back
The hotel was clean and the reception was good. However the breakfast room was crowded and very hot. A/C was available but not turned on. Rooms were large and comfortable but the toilet wasn't fixed to the floor and moved dangerously when used. Dinner on both nights was excellent. unfortunately complaints made to reception were completely ignored. Unlikely to use this hotel again..
We stayed in the triple room on the 11/06/2011. We had dinner B&B and found the staff, room and food excellent, well worth a visit.
My husband and I stayed in the Orranmore Lodge Hotel for 1 night.The hotel was lovely and the staff very friendly.The evening meal and breakfast were excellent and we will definitely stay there again. Definitely merits 5 star rating. . DO'S
Great hotel. Very friendly staff and good service. We had a family room and were impressed with the size. With small kids, the fridge in the room was a bonus. Rooms were quiet. The leisure centre was great, we used the pool every day, really clean. The pool is smaller than most we have been to though it didn't matter on this occasion as there few people using it when we were there- it might get a bit crowded in high season though. We had a meal in the restaurant which was nice but would highly recommend the Basilico Restaurant (Italian) in the town. Supervalu and Tesco a short walk away if you are thinking of a picnic. Galway City a short bus ride away if you want to leave the car for the day. This is the first time we have been on a Lidl Break. So easy to book and really great value. Would definitely recommend them.
Our stay at this hotel was made exceptional by the helpful and freindly staff, a great hotel.
Bedroom tiny (Room 314) only space for one bedside locker. - if you suffer from claustrophobia this room is not for you. Be carefull getting out of bed as you may hit your head. One tiny window in room plus velux window. A lift would be a great advantage. Rest of hotel good - breakfast good (could do with additional staff on duty)
We had a great stay in the Oranmore Lodge Hotel. The rooms were clean and comfortable. The staff were friendly and helpful. It was great to have the leisure club as we got use out of both the swimming pool and the gym. The hotel had a family friendly atmosphere. My four year old left his stuff panda and the staff were very helpful in tracking him down and posting him back to us free of charge. We think that the Lidl break was really good value for money and we would definitely be booking through them again.
Really enjoyed our short stay in this hotel, the only fault is that the rooms are a little dated now, the lighting in room is poor, but many other hotels seem to have the same problem. Very good breakfast and the dinner on sat evening was superb and the service was very good as well. we used the leisure centre for swim and it was very clean and pleasant.
We stayed in the Oranmore Lodge with my parents for the 2nd time in twelve months. While the rooms might be a little dated they are large, bright and very comfortable. The hotel is spotless and the staff are very accommodating and professional. The bar and dining room have been recently renovated and look fantastic.Value for money is excellent. My only small complaints are there was no music in the hotel bar as was advertised (the band last time were fantastic so it was a little disappointing) and pool can be a little chilly. Overall a great traditional hotel.
We spend Patric weekend in the Oranmore with two our kids. Family break. Everything was so great. My son love the breakfast and making a tosts. Food was very nice and a lot to choose for a breakfast. We also spend a lot time in the swimmingpool what was great even my husband finde a time to do some exercise at fiitness room. Thanks a lot for great time.
good value for money, rooms very nice and spacious, friendly staff, nice breakfast and good value for money on lunch menu. pool area good, changing rooms small though, only fault, otherwise would recommend.
The Oranmore Lodge was very good value for money. The breakfast was great and suitable for children. The swimming pool was a bit hit with the children but the facilities were a bit shabby. The food in the hotel was nice but the service was not great.
The Hotel was fine, the staff were very nice and helpful. The food was lovely. Could recommend this Hotel to anyone. Had a lovely break and it was great value for money. Thanks Lidl.
would not stay in this hotel again . arrived at i oclock nobody in the place bar was closed until 4. no bar food avalible until 6. rooms were freezing girl had to give me heater to heat room up as a result my daughter has a cold . went to pool then water was freezing and dressing rooms were a mess . also room had about 2days milk in the fridge that had gone of . would never stay here again or reccomend to anyone either.
I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone. The staff are very friendly and helpful. Our stay included dinner and breakfast and both meals were excellent .The rooms are large and very comfortable. We availed of the Lidl offer which is great value. I look forward to our next stay in this great hotel.
Enjoyable weekend of the 10 and 11 Dec. Staff friendly, food good, rooms very nice. Overall good hotel and would stay there again. Michelle Tipperary
Very comfortable, friendly helpful staff, food very good and service efficient
We stayed in the Oranmore Lodge over the weekend in early December and had a really nice tim. The hotel is quite old but it has a very good athmosphere. Bedroom was very nice a bit basic but has coffee making and TV with plenty of channels. No Sky news which i missed. Overall a nice experience and would recomment it for a lazy weekend.
Lidil breaks was great value for money.Stayed for two nights in november.Hotel was lovely. Room was very comfortable.Food was very good and good value in the bar.Area is quite and great for a relaxing break.The leisure center is great. The jacuzzi was the best i have ever been to .Had a lovely back neck and shoulder msssage felt very relaxed after my stay there.Overall i enjoyed my stay and would go back again.Staff were friendly and helpful.Veronica in Limerick.
The Oranmore Logde is a fab hotel with very friendly staff and the food was just fab. Could not fault this hotel on anything. There was 17 Adults and 5 Children and we had a brill weekend. Thanks
Stayed 20th Nov for one night. Staff were very friendly if in very short supply (the girl who checked us in on Sat served us breakfast from a buffet on Sun morning and was back behind reception when we checked out) Had dinner in bar as restaurant was just a small room off the hallway and not very inviting also had report that food the previous night was not good at all. Bar food was very good and bar staff very friendly.Not a very cosy bar much too bright. Would not consider it a 4 star hotel and if we had not been on a Lidl break and paid full price we would not have been impressed at all. Lidl breaks are excellent value will do it again
this is a nice hotel, its clean, comfortable and quiet. The breakfast is good and the leisure centre is fairly okay. Would stay again but wouldn't rate it as a four star.
Nice place, room was a little cold when we got there but it warmed up. Staff friendly, breakfast was fine. 5 minute walk to Oranmore and some nice pubs and restaurants. Was happy with my stay and the value for money.
Am from Renmore, Galway and we were on a visit to my parents. The family room was very spacious and the addition of the fridge was a bonus as we could have enough milk for ho chocolates!! The pool was being cleaned so they got to swim on Sun morning and they really enjoyed it. Sat morning breakfast was super, served at the table (am only sorry we didn't get her name). Nothing was a problem and if there were more people like this, this the world would be a happier place. There was no noise problem and everything was very relaxed. Thank you to the girl on reception on Sunday morning - I hope you get to take up crochet again!! We will be back.
Photo of pool shown here is not what is at the hotel. We recently stayed here and the dinner was fantastic! However no heat in the room and a wonky TV ( which was eventually replaced) took from our stay a little. Staff v friendly.
lidl break very easy to book with option of text confirmation as well as email. Oranmore Lodge Hotel was lovely, staff very helpfull and pleasant to deal with. Family room was comfortable, spacious and also had a fridge which was very handy. Would stay here again.

We really enjoyed our stay at Oranmore lodge. Lovely atmosphere, friendly, helpful staff and delicious food. Excellent value for money. We will definately be returning.
first class hotel - even the night porter is very helpful 10 out of 10
ENJOYED OUR STAY AT ORANMORE LODGE. UNFORTUNATELY OUR ROOM WAS COLD AT NIGHT AND EVEN WITH EXTRA BLANKETS IT WAS HARD TO SLEEP. THE FOOD WAS EXCELLENT AND THE HOTEL STAFF EXTREMELY FRIENDLY AND HELPFUL.
We had a wonderful time, the hotel were very understanding and gave my wife an I a ground floor room as my wife is 7months pregnant. The bar food was excellent. We would have paid about 50.00 euro more booking on the hotel website. The staff were very helpful and chatty. There were alot more people staying at the weekend but service was brilliant. Hope to go back and will be booking through Lidil breaks again.
had a superb stay in the Oranmore lodge Saturday 9th / Sunday10 Oct. Room was spotless and nice and quiet Had a nice relaxing visit to the leisure centre Jacuzzi is so powerfull its as good as a massage in itself The gym though small is well equipped and well supervised The ladies on reception were very helpfull and their local knowledge of walks and scenic areas were very accurate My favourite of all though was the food Full marks to all concerned with Dinner on Sat night and breky on sunday morning Thanks to Lidl breaks for fantastic value im spreading the word with all my friends Regards Martin
Great value for money! Hotel was comfortable, with pleasant helpful staff. Good value for a short escape.
The hotel is nice with very friendly staff, my room was great, two double beds, TV, Microwave, tea and coffee making facility's and a mini fridge. quite rooms, I didn't hear any noise. the menus looked expensive, so I ate at the "city limits" Amazon restaurant which is almost next door and i give that a must try, value for money. the photo's on this web page show a larger pool with gym above, that pool is not at this hotel (it must be in the matrix somewhere!?) the one with the red water umbrella is, and is detached from the main hotel. sat night at the hotel bar was grim, just sports on the TV, no music, although a band was booked they cancelled. But the friendly staff put music on later. I booked a room here for myself for one night and found it a little expensive at %u20AC78. This being a joined family holiday the other members in my family found it to be great value such as my Sister who had 2 Adults and 3 kids in one room for a total of %u20AC78 although I did ask for a single supplement at reception I was told the deal is cheaper, normally it would be %u20AC110 for one person per night. Overall a good, quite, relaxing hotel near Galway city
great staff, lovely room, everything clean & tidy. great value for money. just a note, first picture of the pool is not at this hotel, looks similar but not as big as the one in the picture.
Room was spacious and clean. Restaurant was very small but nice. There wasn't a great selection at breakfast. Overall was a pleasant stay.
my daughter and myself spent a very pleasant lidl break at your hotel recently and have recommended to many of my friends. The staff were very friendly and really made us welcome. Found it very convenient to galway and renvyle which is a very pleasant walking area Hoping to send another break in your hotel in the future Regards Margaret
To whom it concerns, We had a very pleasant stay in your hotel. The staff were friendly and helpful, the room was comfortable and clean. The dining room was a bit cramped. While the all inclusive B/B or B/B & evening meal was very good value, The Hotel A la Carte menu was extremely expensive, which meant we had to eat elsewhere. We like the choice to eat out if we have traveled off somewhere, but would like also to be able to eat in the hotel too. Yours Sincerely Tommy Greene
Excellent hotel great food great value 5 star rating Anne
staff veryfriendlyand helpful,,food excellent and served with smiles. we were sorry we couldnt stay longer. location very good only a few miles from galway would recommend lidl breaks and would avail of them again
We had a very nice weekend stay at the Oranmore Lodge Hotel. The rooms were lovely, the staff very pleasant and always help. All the food from the breakfast to the pub grub was gorgeous. Would definately recomend this hotel to others and would love to come back for another stay.
i was very pleased with the oranmore lodge,the room was beautiful,the decor may need a bit of updating. but on the whole it had everything that was needed.the staff were really helpful.e.g. we arrived friday evening and were too tired to go out.we had a meal in the bar.it was very enjoyable.we were going to retire early and watch t.v. in the bedroom .i follow big brother and it was evictiion night.unfortunately we couldnt get channel .i rang down to reception and think it was david or paul that came up to try to tune it in. it wasnt to be.he rang back from reception to tell us it would be on tv in bar.so we went there to watch it. nothing was too much trouble for the staff.very friendly.and courteous.i didnt know lidl did breaks away it was my husband reading one of the shopping receipts.out of curiousity that i checked it out on website. very good value for money and as i was going to christening in galway that weekend i checked prices for other hotels and they were very expensive and i wasnt about to pay what they were asking.i wouldnt have gone to the christening as i couldnt afford that kind of money.so i was pleasently surprised to discover that your company offered 2 nights incl breakfast for 80euro.wow too good to pass up.i am afraid to recommend you cos i dont want everyone to book through you cos you might up the prices.ha ha .i know for a fact other guests at christening paid 3 times that to stay in other hotels.
nice hotel have stayed in nicer four stars however,was good value for money.breakfast was very nice and well presented.
This is not a 4 star hotel. If you are staying here, you will need a car to get to the city. Swiming pool was clean, as were the showers in the Sports Centre. Kiddies pool is not great though. Breakfast was good, room was clean and serviced every morning. Bathroom was clean. Over all not bad, but far from a 4 star hotel. Second time using Lidl Breaks. Over all very happy with the value for money.
Excellent value for money. The food was first class and the staff were excellent very pleasant and helpful.
Room was freezing cold ...... did say to receptionist and was told they would put on the heat ... but we are still waiting.. In fact the room was so cold my friend and I had to share the bed and put the second quilt over us
We had a great weekend in the hotel. no complaints about our stay at all .Staff were very nice and helpful and the room was perfect. it was really good value for money. We all really enjoyed ourselves. thanks Jennifer
We had 3 nights with 2 young children and the hotel and area could not have been any better. Staff go that extra mile to deliver quality and service. Leisure center ideal. Staff made a great stay perfect and very comfortable with 2 young girls. Look forward to visiting again. Jacqui
Booked three nights B&B through Lidl breaks and believe that this represents considerable value for money at 35 euro per night pps. Had dinner in the bar on arrival and found it quickly served, cooked as we had asked and of high quality. Room spacious and well appointed with fridge, microwave, kettle, utensils and crockery. Large TV but no phone - maybe not needed in these days of mobiles. Buffet breakfast catered for a wide range of Irish and continental tastes, was quickly and pleasantly served and well cooked. Staff were invariably pleasant, efficient and accommodating.
Had a Great time . Food and rooms Very good. Staff very plesant and helpful. Breaksfast dining room not very suitable for anyone who would have difficulty with steps as there are 2 steps down to breaksfast room. I saw a couple of people having a lot of difficulty. Wouldnt class the diningroom or bar area 4 star . But it was a lovely quiet and relaxing place to stay not far from galway and the burren. Mary
LIDL breaks are fantastic value for money. We really enjoyed our stay in Oranmore Lodge Hotel.
Hi There, My husband and I both had a wonderful time in the Oranmore Lodge. The accommodation, food,pool, and staff were all SUPER. Oh ,the value was just as great. Please keep up the good work. We certainly do recommend your great service. Again many thanks. Kathleen Homan
Had a great short stay in the Oranmore Lodge. The rooms were great and very clean. The food served was of superb taste and the portions were generous. All the staff we encountered were excellent. Would recomend this hotel to anyone.
The staff was very friendly and helpful. The room was clean but overall the hotel and its facilities are in need of an upgrade. It is certainly no longer a 4 star hotel.
Great hotel, breakfast and dinner delicious, with the lidl break it was insanely good value for money. Staff were excellent, rooms pleasent. leisure centre was very nice, grounds lovely. great for a quiet weekend away or a family break. bar very nice too, very close to Galway city if you fancy that, we also took day trip drive around the burren so the hotel was in a great location for heading in that direction.
The hotel was basic, however, two fabulous evening meals and a breakfast more than made up for it. Very good value for money and excellent service.
We found it great value for money. The room was very comfortable, the food was great and the staff were very friendly. Can't comment on the leisure club as we didn't use it. The only fault was no Beamish in the bar.
we enjoyed our stay in the oranmore lodge, room perfect, leisure centre first class, food excellent and very friendly and helpful staff. would go again.
Lovely place ... and lovely Staff.. i will stay again.. one downfall..... i did not like the hotel taking payment from my credit card when we checked in...
The hotel was very comfortable, the staff were lovely and very helpful, couldn't do enough for you, the food and the room was very nice. I never tried the leisure club so couldn't comment. The only thing I found was it was a bit noisy very early in the morning around the hotel, I normally am up early but found this a little annoying, I'm not sure if it was bin men or they were getting oil delivered so obviously this wouldn't happen every day. other than that I loved it and would stay again, and it was great value.
