“Cead Mile failte”
Reviewed 5 January 2012

I read a number of the reviews for this hotel before travelling and some had some valid points and most were quite accurate, I hope to give my take as accurately, We stayed here with some extended family at the end of December and I have to say I have never had a more relaxing stay in a hotel, Ok some of the rooms need a bit of redecoration but all were clean and warm, and were cleaned daily, Where this hotel wins hands down is the quality of the service provided by all staff, Alot has been written lately in Ireland about how we have lost the "Cead Mile Failte" well a short stay in this hotel will put a smile back on your face and renew your faith in the irish welcome, No request was too much here and from the reception to the restaurant to the manager the standard of service never dropped, We had a few young children with us and they were never too much trouble even when they decieded to talk to the staff they also recieved the same standard of warmth. Really a short stay here is enough to renew your faith in the famed Irish welcome, Well done everyone at the Auburn Lodge, I and my family will definitely be back

Room Tip: Rooms nearer to the leisure centre were more modern and slightly bigger

booked two twin rooms here for dinner bed & breakfaste- very spacious and clean rooms - no complaints. the recepionist on arrival was very nice and rang ahead to check if we could get tickets on the door for a concert in a nearby hotel, she went out of her way and that was very nice. Location of this hotel very central, a short drive from the town.
The dinner was good, nothing outstanding but again very good value for money. Breakfast was self service, which is expected with a 3star property, again no complaints. Would recommend this hotel for visitors either from ireland or overseas.

We booked this hotel, having read the reviews, however the hotel we stayed in didn't match any of the reviews. We arrived on a very wet cold night, got to our room it was freezing, on enquiring with reception, we were told it was timed to go on and off, but she would ask the Manager to turn it on, which in fairness they did, but surely it should have been on. The room was awful, it was so dated with an old tv and shoddy furniture, and the bathroom was like something out of the 70's, the food in the bar was ok but the breakfast was terrible, no selection and everything cold, couldn't eat it. I had a few queries but got absolutely no feed back and nobody got back to me on anything. having checked the pictures of this hotel on line since our stay, the bedroom we stayed in was nothing like the ones pictured. The corridor to our room had no heat on, was very cold and smelled of cigarette smoke.. I appreciate this is a quiet time of the year but this hotel really is more of a motel and certainly
not even a 3 star. we had planned to stay 3 nights but checked out after 2 and will definately not visit this hotel again.

I know it was Halloween but I didnot expect to be staying in the Horror hotel!
Cracked tiles on the bathroom floor, cracked sink and bathroom decor to make you vomit.
No room in their dinning room for our two night stay. Were advised/ recommended a restaurant by reception staff only to find restaurant closed months ago.
Thanks to the Old Ground Hotel who looked after our dinning needs so well. We should have stayed there.
Internal glass in some hotel doors were filthy.
No newspapers were available on reception as promised - we were sent to Supermarket next door only to find it didn't open until 10.30!
Breakfast time was like feeding time at the zoo - manic.
The room we were given was on the landing - we were woken 3 times during the night with drunken guests shouting in the hallway.
The view from our window was of a dumper!
Do yourself a favour don't stay at the Bates Motel - go to the Old Ground were they treat their guests like customers.

Myself and my Partner stayed at the Auburn Lodge Hotel & Leisure Centre
in Ennis from Friday 28th October to Monday 31st October .Having read some of the reviews on trip advisor I was a bit worried about our stay but I have to say we had only a great experience .The Hotel reception and lay out in General is very good with easy access to all annenities (bar,restaurant,leisure complex).Check in was quick and the girl was very friendly and polite.The room we got was no 505 which was a newly decorated room .The room and bathroom was bright and clean .plenty of towels and we requested more pillows which were delivered to our room .We ate breakfast each morning which was your standard Irish buffet breakfast but as I am on a healthy eating plan I ordered poached eggs and grillled bacon which was no problem and service was quick.We ate in the dining room on one night(not part of our deal).We opted for the early bird menu (5pm to 7pm) at a cost of 18 euro for 4 courses .What amazing value and the quality of the food was excellent(again when I asked for no butter or sauces this was not a problem .Salmon was really good) .The leisure complex was an added bonus and with a lot of families staying in the Hotel it proved very popular .It was clean and well staffed .We did not have any treatments so cannot comment on this .We paid 126 euro for our stay which I have to say was excellent value.I would recomend this Hotel to our friends and will defenitately stay here again when we return to Ennis.

Room Tip: 505 very close to Leisure Centre
