We really enjoyed our stay, room, staff and pool were all excellent. Although the breakfast was good and the staff were great, it would be 100% better if the cold products were actually in a chiller, and if the hot vegetarian products (ie potatoes, hash browns, beans) were kept with each other rather than beside meat products!

The stay was quite nice, although, the food was not good. It served carvery vegetables with the dinner and the wine was extremely over priced (27 euro) for possible an 8 euro bottle of wine. The food was very over priced. Also, the water for the shower and bath was luke warm. The swimming facilities were good and the staff were nice.

A great hotel in a lovely location. We really enjoyed the weekend break in Drumshanbo, there's so much to do in the area. From just outside the hotel grounds, we walked along the canal to the new floating boardwalk on acres lake. And then we continued on along the canal walk the whole way to Leitrim Village. It took about 2 and a half hours in total. Just fabulous. The hotel was excellent value for the 2 nights b&b. Looking forward to our next visit already.

Perfect hotel for a very quiet get away. Lovely walking trails, all accessible from the hotel. Leisure centre is lovely too, they have an outdoor Jacuzzi but unfortunately it was out of order on our visit. Food in the bar is grand if you are happy with burgers and chips and that kind of thing, they do that extremely well :) The restaurant food was much healthier option and really good portions and fresh food. The breakfast was good, plenty to choose from to include a healthy option if required. The staff are very friendly and accommodating. Hotel is huge, the main part is in good condition but the extended areas could do with a bit of maintenance. Overall a very peaceful place, perfect getaway, on the shore of a beautiful lough which I'm sure is full of life in the Summer months, If you just want to relax and unwind with the option of walking or bike ride I would highly recommend this hotel and location. It was October when we ventured up so we were very happy to just relax, walk, sleep and eat :)

Everything exceeded our expectations. Greeted with a warm welcome. No family rooms available to our complete joy we received two apartments, it made the stay all that bit more comfortable. Amazing views and walks around the area. We ate in the bar and the food was lovely, great barman made us very welcome too. Our waiter that evening went above his job looking after us and had a word for young and old. He even sang happy birthday while talking out the cake to my dad for the laugh, great addition to the hotel. Swimming pool was lovely and warm and clean albeit a bit small, hot tub great too. Playground and pool tables a great addition to amuse kids although pool table not allowed to be used after 9. Suggest a better area for those games to allow use at least until 10 as they are a big asset. Thoroughly enjoyed by all and can't believe I didn't know about this hiding gem, we will be back. Thanks

I did'nt give this hotel top rating because in my opinion the noise volume in the bar with two monster televisions facing each other was excessive. By the way, I'm deaf and even with my hearing aids switched off and acting as ear plugs, it was still too loud for me. Ray

Stayed here for one night and was pleasantly surprised to be offered the choice of a room or a 2 bed apartment, we took the 2 apartment which was spacious, clean, quiet and comfortable. We had a 3 course meal and a few drinks in the bar which was all very nice. Breakfast was good too, a good selection of hot or cold options on offer. All of the staff were very warm and welcoming. I would definitely stay here again.

Very nice hotel, good clean rooms and lovely food. My main gripes are that there was no BBC 1 in either of the rooms I booked and that the wifi was dredful. I realise that generally wifi is bad in Leitrim but a large hotel should have something better than the poor quality we endured. I also found the receptionist to be quite glib when dealing with my complaints. Overall about 2.5 stars.

Spent a lovely 2 nights at the hotel. Ate at the bar both nights and food was really nice and the staff were more than helpful, they also made a lot of effort with my 10 month old baby which was nice. Went to the pool both days and It's great, big pool with sauna and steam room and the out door hot tub was fantastic with a wonderful view. The rooms themselves are a bit dated, especially the television but they were clean and the beds were comfy, got a great nights sleep both nights. Got breakfast to the room on both mornings which was only a small charge of €5 per morning. Breakfast was lovely, arrived on time and was nice and hot. Would def visit again, maybe when my baby is a bit older and can attend the kids club which is on every evening and a great idea for parents to have some alone time.

Hotel was average at best. Rooms were OK, nothing special. Could barely get a drip of hot water from the shower the whole weekend which was highly frustrating. Advised reception who said they would send up maintenance (probably did, we were out most of the day), but didn't help at all. Breakfast was grand, but food service in the bar was surprisingly slow considering it was during the day, pretty empty, and we only ordered two desserts. Hotel is also in the middle of nowhere really, costed us e20 to carrick-on-shannon in a taxi, and e26 back. Hot tub outside was a nice tough, really enjoyed that. And my partner got a massage in the spa which she really enjoyed. Overall, would have been pretty annoyed if I paid full price, and can see why they've got to use deal sites to fill rooms.

This is my second time with my family in hotel. Big family suite was great. Staff were helpful and friendly. Breakfast was excellent. The bar food was also good although 19.50 euro for fish catch of the day was a bit steep seeing as it was a special. 13.95euro was reasonable for the other main courses. Swimming pool was also very good. Will definitely go back again. Many thanks Lough allen

Just back from a 2 night stay in Lough Allen Hotel, can I fault it, NO. Lovely hotel, lots to do, staff are lovely, food is lovely, so much for my daughter to do with a lovely out door play area, pool & children's indoor play area too. Got a great offer through 3+ Breaks, will definitely be going back.

The Lough Allen hotel is a fantastic hotel. We have been a few times and will definately go back. The amenities for the children are brilliant and the pool is so clean. The food in the bar is really lovely and its all topped off by the amazing staff that work there. I would highly recommend the hotel.

Our stay at the Lough Allen Hotel was very pleasant. We originally booked for one night ( Saturday 25th March) but were offered a complimentary stay for an additional night without breakfast. This was a wonderful offer and we couldn't resist taking it up. On Saturday night we had a lovely meal in the Restaurant. The food was superb and service excellent. We also had a number of drinks in the bar prior to after diner which we enjoyed immensely. The music was also first class. The breakfast on Sunday morning was superb and set us up for the remainder of the day. We didn't get an opportunity of using the leisure centre because we left after Breakfast to head to Omagh to a football match. Sadly we had to leave very early on Monday morning as I had to go to work. In summary this was a lovely experience and I enjoyed every moment of it. Since returning to work I have told many people of your excellent facility and I am quite sure some of them will book with you at as future date.

The hotel was nice, clean and the staff friendly. the food in the Bar and at breakfast (especially the hot food) was disappointing , the choice for the price was poor.

Stayed 2 nights for a family weekend away. Very happy with the hotel. Good value for money, clean and friendly staff. The bar food was poor (wafer thin over cooked steak sandwich etc). Also the hot tub was unavailable/out of service. Other than that a very nice hotel in a beautiful location.

first day we arrived they got our booking wrong when we told them they gave us a apartment and when we went to bed that night there was blood on the sheet and we said it at the desk the next morning and they said that they would send in house keeping then the second night the boiler was making awful noises all night we rang the front desk and the night porter said to turn off the boiler we did this and the noise still continued would never stay here again

Great value and fabulous rooms. The food in the morning was great, the bar food wasn't great though. But that was partly bad choices on my behalf.

Had a great weekend here - definitely added to by the fab weather. Great room, very child friendly - in fact having lots of other kids there meant our son had a ball playing football with them all. Staff very friendly, food good ( a bit overpriced in the bar). Highly recommend it.

Myself and partner had a wonderful couple of day at Lough Allen Hotel and Spa. The atmosphere is relaxed, the food is delicious and the hotel is spotless. We found the staff to be very friendly, accommodating and professional. We will definitely return. I would recommend this hotel, I couldn't fault it. The outdoor hot tub is fantastic. We will definitely return. Thanks to all the staff, you're doing a fantastic job

We had a 2 night stay at the Lough Allen Hotel. The staff were friendly, food was delicious and the leisure facilities of the pool and outdoor hot-tub were fantastic. The only couple of things I would say is that there is no internet / wi-fi in the bedrooms.....only accessible in the foyer and bar/restaurant . The bathroom fan was not workkng on arrival and i was promised that it would b fixed the next morning wothout delay ....I had asked twice again but.....we checked out on the Sunday and it wasn't looked at all , little disappointing ! Overall very enjoyable stay .

Overall we were not impressed with this hotel. Even though we booked a family room we were given an apartment which involved having to walk outside to get to and from the main hotel, which might be fine in the summer, but not in the wind and pelting rain. The apartment itself was in need of a face lift, threadbare carpets, shower head broken. There were dirty clothes from a previous occupant left in the one of the bedside lockers which makes you wonder about the standard of cleaning. The hotel pool was small, with only a tiny children's area and no life guard. There seemed to be no rules for using the pool like you see in other hotels. It was a busy weekend, so there was complete chaos in the pool, with kids running, jumping in and using all sorts of inflatables. The changing rooms were tiny and very uncomfortable for a parent with small children. On the plus side, the food was reasonably good in the bar and the breakfast was good. Get there early though, as the restaurant isn't huge and there were long waits to be seated. We wouldn't return.

Very nice hotel in a lovely location. The rooms are comfortable and we had a good nights sleep. For the most part this is a family hotel with lots of activities for children and is very child friendly. I would have no problem recommending this hotel.
