Hotel Reviews


Susan scored 4 / 5 on 05/04/2024

The Armada Hotel is on a wonderful site, facing out to sea. The outdoor area has several groups of benches to enjoy the views on a fine day, with Gull cafe nearby for your coffee. Service in the hotel was excellent, not just efficient, but friendly too. The rooms are very well equipped, the mini-fridge for the jug of milk is very welcome. The one disappointment is the lack of a swimming pool. Breakfast provided a great variety of foods, both hot and cold, with again great service.

Just returned from 3 fabulous nights in the Armada. The location was beautiful and the staff were so friendly and helpful. In spite of all the covid restrictions ( which were adhered to at all times ), it was a relaxing break away. Excellent food too. ????

Karen scored 5 / 5 on 15/11/2016

I can't rate the Armada highly enough. The staff were all so welcoming, friendly and helpful and the food in the restaurant was top notch. The scallops and seabass dish was absolutely delicious. We thoroughly enjoyed the cosy bar with its open fire and the whole place is just so relaxing. It was lovely to see Irish made products in the bathroom too. Already looking forward to a return visit. Thanks to all the staff who made our stay so pleasant and memorable.

Sinead scored 5 / 5 on 10/11/2016

The staff in the hotel were friendly and efficient. The breakfast we had the next morning was the best ever and the waitress kindly gave us a table overlooking the sea. Would definitely revisit - Atlantic ocean views were just stunning.

Would Highly recommend.

Tom scored 1 / 5 on 20/03/2016

we were disappointed and would not stay there again . there was a smell of cigarettes in the room , I complained , We would have to pay 10E each to move room . they are not superior rooms . The bed was very uncomfortable . The Steak -5Euro supplement was not a rib eye as the menu said . It was overcooked even though we asked for medium rare . We would not recommend it to our friends or would not go back again . 2 star

The Armada Hotel was extremely good. Upon arrival we were greeted by a friendly Receptionist who was very helpful and welcoming. Our room was very pleasant and with all the facilities as detailed by the hotel. We had dinner in the Restaurant and it was lovely. Breakfast was excellent. We were very happy with our stay there and would book another break for the Armada in the future. Hotel Staff were very helpful and friendly.

The location of this hotel is wonderful. The staff are friendly and the food is lovely. I did book a family room and was given a triple, which was unfortunate. I asked for a sea view and unfortunately wasn't successful. The kids club was wonderful. The staff brought milk and cookies on one evening for a bedtime treat! I would definitely go back again.

Ann scored 4 / 5 on 23/09/2015

Top class hotel in a wonderful location & friendly staff. Gorgeous spacious room overlooking sea, loved the luxurious toiletries & seaweed bath. Lots of cosy corners in bar with turf fires burning & lively back-round music. Only downside was not many people in restaurant for dinner so lacking in atmosphere and the dreary CD playing over & over didn't help. Great stay thanks.

B scored 4 / 5 on 22/06/2015

Hotel was great and staff were friendly and very helpful. Set menu choice was very limited and roast of the day could be included. Lovely setting for hotel and we would go back again.

Reviewer48148558 scored 4 / 5 on 11/06/2015

The hotel is lovely. Its view and location is gorgeous. During our short one night stay we only got to experience the restaurant and bedroom . The rooms were spacious, well equipped and very comfortable. The views in the restaurant were amazing. The only negative was the time it took for our food to be served. We had a two course meal but we had to wait over 50 minutes between ordering and for our main course to be served. The meal was then served in stages. I usually dont mind but the fact the restaurant was not at all busy we were a bit put out. But overall the people were very friendly especially the lady who we met at breakfast.

Bert scored 4 / 5 on 19/07/2014

Just spent one night here in July. Had 2 meals and breakfast. Must say the food was very good and very well presented. The staff in this hotel were extremely friendly, I suspect most were from the locality. The hotel is quite a distance from a town, but that said, it seems to have a large support from the numerous nearby holiday homes. With music every night, adequate bedrooms,and the efficient and friendly staff, you will not be disappointed with a stay here.

enjoyed our one night stay here found the accommodation clean and comfortable ,friendly staff , good food a bit slow on service between courses but otherwise fine enjoyable meal .a few enjoyable drinks in the burkes bar afterwards . only thing we found strange was the size of the lift was very small and slow wouldn't like to have to use it too often we used the stairs as we were on the second floor!

Joyc scored 5 / 5 on 14/09/2013

From the warm welcome of the staff on reception, the room with a view over the sea, the lovely breakfast, the delicious evening meals, to the staff at reception as we were leaving - it was truly wonderful - and made our couple of days getaway delightful.

Booked our stay through TodayFM Breaks. Requested a room with a view, however this was not provided. Receptionist said that they did not receive all the information relating to our booking! We were provided with an adequate room overlooking the wheelie bins at the front of the hotel. Very disappointing. Hotel food was lovely and there was music in the hotel on all three nights of our stay, which was nice. Staff are very friendly and the hotel is in a great location.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and it was practically a straight run from Dublin.Jerome and Emily were very welcoming on the reception.The food was good and the waiting staff were very friendly and made us feel at home....the breakfasts were absolutely scrumptious;I told myself I wouldn't have the full Irish but I couldn't resist-the peppered sausages were very moreish,and the luchtime menu is a definite must(compliments to the cook)! Our room was very clean, spacious and warm. The hotel is situated close to some of the sights that are must see places:Bunratty and the Cliffs of Moher and also offers the facility of some nice walks in the area. Siobhan and I are definitely going to return as soon as we can. Richard

G scored 4 / 5 on 24/08/2012

The hotel is fabulous - and the food devine. Arrived 2.15pm and our room was "not quite ready" - tea for two offered while we waited. Nice gesture. Staff very helpful. As the weather was disappointing (to say the least) it would have been lovely to have had a leisure or spa centre. Women love a bit of pampering......... But would certainly recommend to friends and have every intention of returning to the Armada. Would give a 4* rating to hotel - 5 if there had been that leisure/spa centre.

Dee scored 4 / 5 on 06/08/2012

The hotel was in a wonderful location, fantastic value and breath taking views. The food was devine, had live entertainment on a monday night and special offer on drinks, I enjoyed my stay very much and would highly recommend this hotel. Our room was very comfortable lots of space and a sea view, who could ask for more! I will definitely be making a return visit.

Good hotel with very pleasant staff-quite a trip to get there and sign posting from Ennis very poor-non existant more correctly-had to ask 3 times from Ennis onwards how to get to Spamish Point. On a dark night not much fun. However met by very pleasant staff (though loud music blaring from bar on the Friday night on our arrival). Good food and staff and bar food very good on the Saturday night. Lovely areas to visit like owls and falcons at Ailiwee Cave and Cliffs of Moher too. So good hotel to be based at to see some of Clare. Staff helpful at all times.

Our stay at the Armada Hotel with Lidl breaks was very enjoyable. The hotel is beautiful, the rooms very clean with all home comforts provided. The staff are very friendly and helpful and this added to the pleasure of our stay. The food served to us at the restaurant was very good and the portions were ample for any hungry traveller. Breakfast was self serice and all diets were catered for and once again there was more than one could eat. All considered we would rate our experience as TOP CLASS and would have no problem recomending a stay at the Hotel and also a Lidl break for great Value and friendly atmosphere. Thanks to all.

Alan scored 5 / 5 on 05/07/2010

Both my wife and I like the idea of the Lidl Break concept because the total basic cost is known in advance - dinner bed and breakfast -- no hidden charges. Our 1 night stay at the Armada was enjoyable and we would visit this hotel again if in the area. The bed and room were both comfortable and clean; we had a stunning sea view both from the bedroom window and from the restaurant. Both the dinner and breakfast were of a high standard. The staff were pleasant and helpful, we appreciated the idea of a special offer to viisit the Cliffs of Mohar since we planned to visit these whilst in the area. Fortunately, we had no problem finding the hotel, since it was listed on our GPS. However we would recommend that the GPS address for the hotel is listed on their web site, letter heads and other publications, and possibly improve signage directing traffic to the hotel from main roads in the area. This will help guests find the hotel more easily, and could provide a competitive edge thereby increasing the number of people who use this hotel. Overall, we would rate this hotel a 4 star +. Good value for money. We have recommend this hotel to friends and relatives.

Julian scored 5 / 5 on 30/06/2010

We married there 6 years go so it was our first time back, the hotel has been done up and looks great, the restaurant is fantastic with beautiful views over the bay. We got upgraded to a superior room, overall a fantastic location for a getaway, especially if the sun is shining.
