"A perfect location for Clifden"
We visited Clifden as our base for touring the Connemara Region. The town is pretty and this hotel is in the perfect location for walking the town. It also offers a leisure center which is great if travelling with children

"Perfect location"
Central location and everything you want from pub to fine dining all in one place. A bit short-staffed during the busy school-holiday week we were there, but staff are kind and efficient.

before going to Clifden we stayed three nights in the Salthill Hotel galway that was £187 sterling compared to £247 sterling for three nights in the Stationhouse in Clifden.The Salthill Hotel was luxery compared to the stationhouse.So we feel that the Stationhouse Hotel was over priced.

Had a very enjoyable stay here, very good deal on dinner with a free bottle of wine with a spend of €25 per couple. Swimming pool was lovely and great jacuzzi, lovely friendly staff. Clifden was a bit too quiet for this time of year with a lot of shops closed but well worth a visit in the summer!

"Not recommended"
I do not recommend the Clifden Station House. Rooms are extremely small, and overpriced. Room configuration for 5 was a double bed, a sofa bed, and a foam mattress. Staff were not very accommodating. Awoken during night (4am) by hotel staff moving loud squeaky cart through the hallways. Cups at breakfast were dirty. Internet connections were not free. I do not recommend using this hotel during your stay in Clifden. There are many better options available.

"Station needs some love"
We arrived and the staff were very courteous and polite. The room was clean but not spotless and it was in need of some TLC, e.g. there were cracks and gouge marks in the plastered walls. The net curtains had a couple of holes and a rip. The bar was not manned, we had to go to reception to get someone up to the bar, and the barman would disappear once he served us. I found this a bit of a nuisance, especially when the hotel was full and there was often 4+ people waiting at the bar for service. I have stayed here a few times, and although I have some gripes from this visit, the location is ideal so there is a level of forgiveness afforded.

"Brilliant customer service"
Just got back from 3 nights at the Clifden Station House, the hotel is modern and the facilities are all very good. We used the pool every day and it was warm enough for my two year old daughter, the rooms were clean and the hotel food very good especially the breakfast. It's location is very good and there is ample on site parking. The difference between this and the vast majority of hotels I have stayed in is the staff, they are so helpful from small things to make your stay more enjoyable to making you breakfast to take with you as you are leaving before the breakfast opens.

We had a fantastic time here, there were 13 of us staying in early April and looked after very well by the staff who went out of their way to make us feel welcome. Rooms were surprisingly spacious, the location and courtyard style setting, with amenities nearby is great for kids and adults of all ages and the food excellent. Thank you so much , we will definitely be back. :)

"Really excellent food and the friendliest staff!"

Stayed here for a weekend while visiting the area. It's a busy hotel and seems to be very popular with walkers and families alike. We were greeted at reception by with a lovely lady (I think she was the manager) - she was so friendly and helpful. It was the same throughout the weekend. All staff very friendly, helpful and knowledgeable on the local area. We were offered a drink in the bar while the room was being prepared which was a lovely gesture. Room was lovely and very clean. Bar food was great and menu had good variety. Pool and spa area are great also especially after a long day of walking! The pianist in lobby on both nights was very entertaining. He involved guests who gladly participated in the singing. The entertainment (music) in the bar on both nights wasn't hectic but overall there was a nice atmosphere with some nice cosy areas which had open fireplaces. It would appear this hotel is frequented by locals as well as visitors. The town of Clifden was quite sleepy on Saturday morning - we walked in after 9am to have a look around - shops were not open. We walked around until 10am but still very few shops were open for business which was a bit unusual. On Sunday morning while reading the papers in the hotel lobby we were offered coffee - again a nice gesture - little things mean a lot! The scenery in this area and all along the sky road walk is simply stunning! Would definitely return.

Hotel was great value for what we paid. Room was satisfactory but noisy as it faced the road. I'd ask for one facing the courtyard. Food was delicious but they were a litter short of staff. Leisue centre was spotless. I'd highly recommended this hotel

"A most enjoyable short break"

Connemara with its amazing landscape and welcoming people never fails to lift the spirit ! Our most recent stay at the Clifden Station House Hotel added to that enjoyment. General Manager Anne Marie and all the other staff members we met were genuinely friendly, attentive and professional. Our room was modern, bright and spacious and we slept soundly in one of the most comfortable beds ever ! The dining highlight was a "melt in the mouth" dish of Connemara Lamb - simply delicious. After dinner, we strolled over to the bar for a drink - which is located in the original station building of a century ago, where old railway posters and memorabilia create great atmosphere and must be a real treat for railway enthusiasts. Clifden was one of the most westerly railway stations in Europe. It was also where Marconi located a wireless station - from which Alcock & Brown announced to the world that they had made the first transatlantic flight back in 1919. So, a real mecca for transport and technology enthusiasts too. Local walks on the beaches and hills are spectacular, and Clifden town has wonderful character with lots of interesting pubs, shops, restaurants and art galleries. While in Clifden, we took the opportunity to visit friends on a self-catering holiday at the nearby Clifden Glen holiday village, where they were enjoying a family holiday. Au revoir, Clifden !

I was part of a group of golfers that stayed in the hotel for three days. It was our first time to stay at this hotel. From the moment we arrived we found the staff to be very friendly and helpful at all times. The rooms were spotless and very comfortable. Dining was a pleasure and the food exceeded our expectations. If you like mussels make sure to have them. The dining room staff were excellent in all aspects of their work. The hotel itself was very well managed with hands on management to the fore in every area of the hotel. A nice touch was when the hotel manager introduced our group to the head chef who was a very charming and friendly young man. We have no doubt that we will return to this hotel in the very near future.

I recently visited from Canada and the Station House hotel exceeded all my expectations. The hotel is modern and very well appointed. The rooms are spacious and the beds very comfortable. The restaurant is fantastic. We had breakfast and dinner there and the food was delicious and very high quality. I will recommend this hotel to everyone.

Hotel was very good with helpful staff, particularly the manageress. She welcomed us all on arrival with coffee, tea and scones, then gave us some information on the hotel and the area. Food was excellent. The bed was so so comfortable. Hotel was walking distance from the town and the pubs had entertainment at some time during the evening.
