We stayed at the Station House for 4 nights in March and were very happy with our choice. The staff were without exception friendly and helpful and the room was modern and very comfortable with a king size bed and a good bathroom. Everywhere was smart and spotlessly clean. Breakfast was included and it was excellent, the well- cooked 'full Irish' had quality bacon and sausages and kept us going all day. The hotel is a short walk from the shops and restaurants in Clifden and close to 2 supermarkets for picnic lunches. We particularly enjoyed the food and good service in the Station bar, part of the hotel and situated just opposite the entrance. They served absolutely delicious home made soups and a range of meals, from lunchtime to 9pm, all the ones we tried were excellent and we found it to be better value than most of the restaurants in the town. The bar is converted from an old station building and has open fires and a cosy ambience. We didn't use the spa, it looked good but seemed to be often in use for children's swimming lessons, a good facility for the community rather than a private hotel pool. The hotel is a good base for exploring the stunning scenery of Connemara by car, the nearby Clifden sky road is spectacular on a clear day. A word of warning though, the main road through the area is appalling, very bumpy and bendy apart from a few renovated stretches. You don't get anywhere quickly and if you have children who get car sick you'd better take a bucket! Apart from that this is a beautiful area and when we return we will certainly be staying at the Station House Hotel.
