We had requested a high floor and a quiet room on arrival we were given a 1st floor room overlooking the extractor fan in the kitchen, the room smelled very bad and when the light was switched on th the bathroom the noise from the extractor fan was deafening, We asked the room to be changed and were out in a 3 rd floor overlooking the courtyard. This room was better and didn't smell, The bar was very hot as the open fire was blazing and we had to leave as it was too hot On the better side the breakfast was very good and the staff were friendly but the hotel feels like it need some work to be done on it

I can't rate the Armada highly enough. The staff were all so welcoming, friendly and helpful and the food in the restaurant was top notch. The scallops and seabass dish was absolutely delicious. We thoroughly enjoyed the cosy bar with its open fire and the whole place is just so relaxing. It was lovely to see Irish made products in the bathroom too. Already looking forward to a return visit. Thanks to all the staff who made our stay so pleasant and memorable.

The staff in the hotel were friendly and efficient. The breakfast we had the next morning was the best ever and the waitress kindly gave us a table overlooking the sea. Would definitely revisit - Atlantic ocean views were just stunning.

Our first visit to this area and hotel. Fantastic experience, from the moment we arrived to our leaving. We we looked after 2nd to none. The staff were very friendly, we arrived before check in time, and no problem. We had a beautiful and very filling meal in their restaurant. The staff were LOVELY, very friendly and polite. Breakfast the next morning was Brilliant!! Homemade scones, homemade bread, jams. Lovely choice of Sausages. Overall a wonderful experience. The view, the proximity to the beach etc.. Top Class. Would Highly recommend.

we were disappointed and would not stay there again . there was a smell of cigarettes in the room , I complained , We would have to pay 10E each to move room . they are not superior rooms . The bed was very uncomfortable . The Steak -5Euro supplement was not a rib eye as the menu said . It was overcooked even though we asked for medium rare . We would not recommend it to our friends or would not go back again . 2 star

The Armada Hotel was extremely good. Upon arrival we were greeted by a friendly Receptionist who was very helpful and welcoming. Our room was very pleasant and with all the facilities as detailed by the hotel. We had dinner in the Restaurant and it was lovely. Breakfast was excellent. We were very happy with our stay there and would book another break for the Armada in the future. Hotel Staff were very helpful and friendly.

The location of this hotel is wonderful. The staff are friendly and the food is lovely. I did book a family room and was given a triple, which was unfortunate. I asked for a sea view and unfortunately wasn't successful. The kids club was wonderful. The staff brought milk and cookies on one evening for a bedtime treat! I would definitely go back again.

Top class hotel in a wonderful location & friendly staff. Gorgeous spacious room overlooking sea, loved the luxurious toiletries & seaweed bath. Lots of cosy corners in bar with turf fires burning & lively back-round music. Only downside was not many people in restaurant for dinner so lacking in atmosphere and the dreary CD playing over & over didn't help. Great stay thanks.

Hotel was great and staff were friendly and very helpful. Set menu choice was very limited and roast of the day could be included. Lovely setting for hotel and we would go back again.

Stayed here in Oct 14 on family break with 8 and 5 year old. Beautiful hotel in a great location. Great for touring all the wonderful things to see in Clare. Breakfast was delicious and very friendly and attentive staff. Very good kiddies club. Only negative is lack of swimming pool. We'll be back for another stay here in the future.

Just spent one night here in July. Had 2 meals and breakfast. Must say the food was very good and very well presented. The staff in this hotel were extremely friendly, I suspect most were from the locality. The hotel is quite a distance from a town, but that said, it seems to have a large support from the numerous nearby holiday homes. With music every night, adequate bedrooms,and the efficient and friendly staff, you will not be disappointed with a stay here.

enjoyed our one night stay here found the accommodation clean and comfortable ,friendly staff , good food a bit slow on service between courses but otherwise fine enjoyable meal .a few enjoyable drinks in the burkes bar afterwards . only thing we found strange was the size of the lift was very small and slow wouldn't like to have to use it too often we used the stairs as we were on the second floor!

From the warm welcome of the staff on reception, the room with a view over the sea, the lovely breakfast, the delicious evening meals, to the staff at reception as we were leaving - it was truly wonderful - and made our couple of days getaway delightful.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and it was practically a straight run from Dublin.Jerome and Emily were very welcoming on the reception.The food was good and the waiting staff were very friendly and made us feel at home....the breakfasts were absolutely scrumptious;I told myself I wouldn't have the full Irish but I couldn't resist-the peppered sausages were very moreish,and the luchtime menu is a definite must(compliments to the cook)! Our room was very clean, spacious and warm. The hotel is situated close to some of the sights that are must see places:Bunratty and the Cliffs of Moher and also offers the facility of some nice walks in the area. Siobhan and I are definitely going to return as soon as we can. Richard

Stayed here for a wedding but went to bed early. Room was very close to function room and could not sleep due to noise.when i brought it up at reception on check out, i was asked why I didn't I complain at 1am. Breakfast not greatly varied, bacon not cooked properly. Ask for a quiet room if staying here.

The hotel is fabulous - and the food devine. Arrived 2.15pm and our room was "not quite ready" - tea for two offered while we waited. Nice gesture. Staff very helpful. As the weather was disappointing (to say the least) it would have been lovely to have had a leisure or spa centre. Women love a bit of pampering......... But would certainly recommend to friends and have every intention of returning to the Armada. Would give a 4* rating to hotel - 5 if there had been that leisure/spa centre.

The hotel was in a wonderful location, fantastic value and breath taking views. The food was devine, had live entertainment on a monday night and special offer on drinks, I enjoyed my stay very much and would highly recommend this hotel. Our room was very comfortable lots of space and a sea view, who could ask for more! I will definitely be making a return visit.

Hotel was perfect for our needs, food was very good and included in the price which made it more enjoyable. Staff were very helpful, very relaxing break. On check in we were upgraded to an exec room - completely unexpected. Hope to return again with our children next year.

Good hotel with very pleasant staff-quite a trip to get there and sign posting from Ennis very poor-non existant more correctly-had to ask 3 times from Ennis onwards how to get to Spamish Point. On a dark night not much fun. However met by very pleasant staff (though loud music blaring from bar on the Friday night on our arrival). Good food and staff and bar food very good on the Saturday night. Lovely areas to visit like owls and falcons at Ailiwee Cave and Cliffs of Moher too. So good hotel to be based at to see some of Clare. Staff helpful at all times.

We stayed in the armada on a weekend the area is quiet and the scenery is lovely, there was weddings on both night s we stayed it was a bit noisey and the room was not very sound proof, but it was a nice room. The food in the bar was beautiful we did have an evening meal included each day for the main resturant but we liked the bar menu better, the breakfast was very nice and plenty of it, There is plenty to see around the area.The staff were very helpfull and very nice.
