Great National Hotel Ballina, Ballina

Good stay overall. We had family room with a large double, a single and a fold up bed. The room was spacious enough for all of us. The room was clean but there were some stains on the carpet and on the sheets on the food up bed. Fold up bed was not very comfortable. Evening meal was superb and the breakfast was also superb. Staff were friendly and welcoming on check in and the restraint areas. The leisure facilities were also very good.

Ireland leisure trip
No complaints about the room or service although unfortunately for us the view from our window was a brick wall, also traffic noise was quite audible. The leisure complex particularly the pool and jacuzzi were looking dated and tired. Breakfast was fine no complaints

Tired facilities
This hotel is very dated, staff are keen to ensure all your needs are met but the whole building needs refurbished. The leisure facilities are particularly poor and desperately needed updated. Rooms are a good size but lack any particular appeal
