Passing through Tuam recently, we stopped for something to eat in the Ard Rí hotel. We both had the mixed grill, all-day-breakfast, and it was fairly substantial with a tea or coffee to go along with it. The hotel has nice décor and was very clean. The staff were pleasant and friendly and the overall experience was enjoyable. The price...

The first thing that strikes you about this hotel is its location - surrounded by houses to the front and sides however with open fields to the rear just on the outskirts of Tuam - however that isn't a bad thing. As it turns out both the location and the food make this is an exceptionally popular hotel with the...

We stayed here for work for a night, upgraded to a suite (€142) The room was huge, really good, as good as many 5star hotels I have stayed in in both Ireland and abroad. The whole room, bed, shower etc was 100%, you won't find a room as good for the price anywhere! Breakfast was good, staff friendly Location is...

Great food, great staff and all round great day. We had 60 seated for a christening and they all loved the food. It was a buffet, chicken with mushroom sauce or beef stroganoff, both were lovely. The service at the table was very good and they were so friendly.

We travelled here as part of a gymnastics party and could not fault the hotel in any way. The rooms were all extremely comfortable and spacious. Beautifully clean throughout the whole hotel.

Stayed here as part of a large group attending a competition nearby. A lovely stay. Made to feel very welcome. Rooms and food lovely but room 213 has a view of a wall, a very bright light outside all night and some kind of generator noise.

I've stayed here many times. I always love it. It's great value, the rooms are lovely & the staff are happy & friendly. It's not 5 star or anything but for €52 ish room only it's better than most. Hard to get a B&B for that.

Good moderate hotel. Was there to see family.Keep in mind bar food closes at 9:30pm, at least on weekdays! Rooms can be be warm so open windows or turn of heat manually,if in Winter. Decent breakfast but dining room is way too dark for mornings.

I'd booked this accommodation to attend a funeral in Corofin and needed a nearby hotel with only 2 in Tuam. The cooked breakfast was very good with the additional self service cereal, breads and yoghurts etc. So much so there was not enough room on the table for it all. The WIFI speed was good for most things except watching...
