Friendly and helpful staff. Excellent food. No charger for electric car unfortunately but there is a high-speed charger across the road in the petrol station. Would recommend no problem
The whole package of dinner , B&B and free parking was outstanding and superb value together with every staff member we met being extremely friendly and most helpful. The best hotel we stayed in for a long time.
Fabulous! Everything is right.A warm welcome check in, lovely big clean comfortable room, nice bar (delicious cocktails), good food, great self serve breakfast and friendly helpful staff. Felt spoiled staying here... exactly what a hotel break should be! Can't wait to stay again.
We had a great stay in this hotel. Our room was spacious and bright as requested. Had a delicious dinner on one evening of our stay. We will definitely be back. Regards Martin.
Staff are very friendly. Food is excellent. Would definitely recommend a visit here.
Fabulous hotel, spotless clean and great friendly staff, we will definitely be back
Excellent hotel and would stay there again

Very good value. Pleasant staff.
In the town great parking
Staff are always very helpful and friendly, food is very nice . I would highly recommend this hotel and it in a great location in the centre of town.
Very clean and comfortable hotel. No complaints about the food. Staff pleasent. Myself and my wife Betty had a lovely stay. Definitely recommended. John ORourke.
Lovely stay, food was excellent and staff very helpful, will stay again
Would Highly recommend. Having stayed here several times firstly as the Harlequin and now as the Ellison I cannot say enough good things about the place. Staff are always pleasant and always helpful. Nothing is too much trouble. Food in the Siar restaurant is always on point would highly recommend the ham terrine as a starter from the Christmas menu. Clean and very covid conscious. We hope to be back again in the New Year. Lisa and all the staff always make us feel highly welcome.
A most enjoyable break was had in the Ellison. Staff so friendly and helpful. Food excellent and so tasty. Rooms spacious and spotless. I look forward to returning again - would highly recommend this hotel.
Excellent...well located...Great steak dinner well worth the extra fiver...
I really liked the Ellison, the staff were attentive, the food was good, the ambience within the hotel was lovely. The two best points were firstly the room, for us it is always the room, to us a hotel provides shelter for the traveller all else is extra. The room was excellent, clean, practical, lovely practical bathroom and the room service was friendly. The second big positive point was it’s location, we literally walked across a covered gangway and were at the door of the royal theatre, check it out… brilliant. It is across the street from the greenway and yards from all the shopping you would want
Just back from the Ellison after a great weekend in Castlebar. The hotel was really nice - very friendly and helpful staff; good restaurant menu; nice breakfast; short walk to the centre - definitely recommend this hotel.
first class,lovely friendly staff,good food and great rooms
Beautiful hotel, very central location in the bustling town of Castlebar, very friendly efficient staff, prompt check in, great spacious rooms, and very comfortable, Food was top class, Highly recommended this hotel????????????
The hotel was lovely the staff were lovely it’s just the room is at the front of the hotel and it is on a noisy main road ..traffic started at 6am ..I’m not sure if there are rooms to the back of the hotel but if there were I would recommend you ask for them ..otherwise perfect and location is great and central
Lovely hotel food staff very nice
I stayed in the Ellison many time rooms are lovely food is great and a great location
Staff were very friendly and efficient. Breakfast was great. Rooms were clean,spacious and comfortable.
Staff were very friendly and efficient. Breakfast was great. Rooms were clean,spacious and comfortable.
Food was absolutely delicious with no exception and the service was 5 star particularly Anna who served us at dinner both nights and is a credit to the hotel and her profession. Everything from reception to parking to local knowledge was in abundance. This hotel was the perfect getaway break and I would highly recommend.
Facilities are limited for a 4 star hotel but the staff were excellent and more than made up for it.
Staff were very friendly and efficient. Breakfast was great. Rooms were clean,spacious and comfortable.
Excellent stay at the Ellison Hotel. Rooms were spotless, beds pillows very comfortable. Food was exceptional in the Siar restaurant. Would highly recommend. Thank you for a lovey, very enjoyable stay.
Hotel room was great, very comfortable. However, we returned to the hotel bar early on the Saturday evening to find it closed at 10:40, when we asked to buy a drink we were refused and told we were only allowed one?!. Usual closing time was 11:30 for all other premises. Disappointing. Otherwise it was a good stay.
OMG.I cannot wait to get back to the Ellison for another wee night away.So close to to,and Thearre just round the corner.Just wish we could have stayed longer. This Hotel is so inviting,and relaxed,if you want to relax this is the one..Me x my daughter stayed here last Sat 8th Oct.The staff are so friendly and nice,the room was cosy warm x spotless.Best nite's sleep for awhile.And the food was super,breakfast was so tasty..I'd give you 10+
Had a lovely stay from the minute we stepped through the door when we were upgraded because we mentioned we hadn't been back since before covid .. thank you to Lisa. The room was clean and bright with plenty of space. The food as always was fab. Steak and korma curry were delicious. We love the "house" bread and the servers Emilio and gang were great and also the bartender was polite and chatty. Delighted with the level of covid measures and very reassuring to see tables and chairs being sanitised as soon as guests vacated. Breakfast was great too. Would highly recommend and we are looking forward to our next visit.
Lovely modern hotel. Staff were very friendly. Clean and spacious rooms. Wonderful stay and a bonus later check out at 12pm.
Great hotel, very central, very accessible, staff very friendly and helpful, rooms clean and comfortable, food amazing, and GREAT value for money,
Nice hotel, very clean. Food is lovely. Car parking. No bar thought, your served drinks in the lobby. Probably after restrictions lift it could be different
Breakfast was great. Didn't have time on our trip to try dinner. Room was lovely and spacious. Toilet wasn't working when we arrived but was very quickly looked at and fixed then the hotel staff. Well done. Keep it up!
Lovely food.. comfortable room and professional staff.. wonderful
Friendly helpful staff Great spacious bedroom and the comfiest bed I slept in ,in ages. Great location and walking distance to the town of castlebar . Will return as good value.
Well located in central Mayo to visit Achill and Westport. Multistory Carpark with bigger parking spaces. 1 night dinner and 2 nights B&B Package very good value for hotel and location. Excellently presented and tasty dinner. Breakfast was waiter served during Corona. Hotel well maintained. Very friendly and efficient staff. Rooms very comfortable and quiet. No fridge in standard room. Looking forward to returning again and have already recommended. Thanks again for the perfect hospitality!
We had an excellent break at the Ellison. The food was excellent and the staff were all brilliant. We will be back
Lovely clean quiet hotel only problem I had was the dinner menu is very poor for vegetarians something like lasagne or nice penne cream pasta would go a long way but otherwise top notch
Great place to relax good food good staff good hotel
Friendly staff nothing any bother for them
Service was very friendly an helpful. compliance with Covid restrictions was very good. Food was excellent and vegetarians well catered for with good quality and choices.
Lovely staff and great food
Enjoyed out two night stay .. friendly staff and good food. Thanks
We stayed in this hotel for my wifes Birthday. This is one of the best hotels myself and my wife stayed in, from the front reception staff to the dining staff and the cleaners you couldn't get nicer people the room is fantastic very spacious and clean the bed was comfortable and big, the breakfast was absolutely fantastic which is down to the chef's and as for there dinner it is amazing it is the best sea food chowder i ever had and the steak was five star food it was our first time in castlebar but we will 100% be booking to stay in this fantastic hotel again in the near future.Thank you to all the staff for making our stay as fantastic as it was.
Great food, great service.
Excellent service, friendly staff, fabulous food, super clean rooms, what more could you ask for, thank you all for a very enjoyable stay
Hotel was so nice,lovely staff,great food and cocktails,massive bed and spacious room!
Fabulous hotel in a prime location. Staff couldn’t do enough for you. excellent. Great place.
Absolutely amazing hotel. Credit to all staff who work there.. Very curtious and friendly and all had a smile. Which is very nice to see in these times. 10/10
Lovely exceptionally clean hotel, very friendly staff and very good food. Will definitely be back again
This is a really lovely hotel. Beautiful modern furniture Reception, Bar and Bedroom. Great free car park. Ideally situated just on edge of town. Lovely lake walk across the road. TK Max Next Tesco Shaws Mc Donalds Garrage just next door. Food and staff really lovely. Great base to tour around. Very impressed
Very happy with stay ,friendly staff ,the food good and room lovely
Clean, comfortable, Food excellent. Reception staff not very helpful and never smiled once - a smile costs nothing. Dining room staff a little bit better but as i said a smile costs nothing. We had a friend with us with memory loss and we were under stress so a friendly reception etc would have helped. When i say yes i will recommend the Hotel i will tell them all this and let them make up their mind if they want to stay in it or not. My husband and i stayed in the Galway Bay in August and they were so friendly and helpful which meant we were very disappointed with the Ellison Hotel.
We recently stay with yourself & right from the start the service was of high standard! Nothing went unnoticed right from the moment we checked in the staff was extremely helpful & very friendly! The best hotel we ever been privileged enough to stay at. Gorgeous building, and it only gets more breathtaking when you walk in. High quality rooms and high quality service. Will definitely recommend to family and friends! Hopefully we will be back soon!
Staff are extremely friendly & accommodating. Hotel is clean and comfortable. Lacks bar or restaurant “feel”. Foyer is a nice area for drinks.
Excellent hotel. Great food Great stall. Very Clean and comfortable. Very safe. Good price.
We had great time .Hotel lovely very clean and all the staff were lovely .Nothing was a problem .The food was great and plenty off it .We had a very relaxing time and most definitely book it again .
Lovely, friendly hotel in a convenient location, close to shops & bars. There was a lovely lake walk across from the hotel, you accessed it through an old cemetery. Rooms were a good size & there was good variety in the menu. Would highly recommend this very friendly hotel. Reason for losing a star is the lack of a pool of leisure centre
We had a wonderful 3 night stay in this lovely Castlebar hotel. All areas of the hotel were spotlessly clean, hand sanitisers everywhere including on the tables in the Siar restaurant. Breakfast & dinner was first class, all the staff were so helpful & accommodating. Thank you all.
Lovely hotel. The food was beautiful the staff are very friendly. Limited choice of draught drinks which is unusual nowadays but the Heineken was really good. The only downside was our room was to the road and it was quite noisy, the few Heineken helped with that. I would definitely come back.
Lovely hotel to stay in. Food was great staff were very helpful and friendly and service was great.
I booked this trip on Lidl break . The only main problem I experienced was that I was paying the same price for a double room even though I was staying as a single person. I queried this on the phone to the hotel & they said they knew it was one person & I may get something back but when I rang the second time they said this was the price that stands. A bit disappointed because when I put it in as 2 people it came up as same price to pay for same trip. Felt I was paying twice. As meals included were a 2 course meal some night s I had 3 courses & paid the extra myself for the extra course. Maybe in this case an extra course should be offered free of charge. There was a mistake made where I was charged 20 euro for a bottle of wine which was nt my order but charged to my card. Still waiting for this to be refunded. A great hotel - staff fab - food amazing but that little blip with the cost I felt could have been handled better.
Staff very helpful and friendly .Closed Bar at 10.45pm which was a bit annoying
Staff very accommodating and nice. Dinner was gorgeous in the restaurant and the breakfast was very substantial and very tasty.
I always enjoy my stay at the Ellison. The staff are the friendliest & nicest staff i have come across in any hotel. Nothing is too much bother. The food is excellent. Its in a great location too walking distance to the main streets & bars. Have recommended this hotel to friends. Will definitely be back soon.
Very nice hotel and staff .the food was also excellent. I would definitely stay there again
Stayed for one night. Very clean and modern hotel. Staff were excellent; friendly and professional. Dinner and breakfast very good. Great hotel experience during the current covid times.
i just love this hotel,loveley spacious rooms,great service great food very good parking facilitysand very well situated close to all routes to and from castlebar,i have stayed here at least 6 or more times and i love it.and aswell very friendlystaff,thank you
I love staying in the ellison it's an amazing hotel all staff are great friendly & we will be back again thank u so much
Lovely stay with lovely staff
Brilliant staff, very helpful and friendly. The hotel was clinically clean (just as I like it) service in the dining area was 2nd to none and the staff there were so nice and helpful, the food was excellent ( compliments to the chef) the rooms were well sanitised and the decor was conducive to relaxation and sleep! I loved my stay as always, it’s my favourite getaway when I need to chill, thank you to everyone concerned, Breege.
Hotel was very comfortable staff very friendly food was good. Very organised for covid 19
The hotel staff were very friendly and accommodating, particularly Lisa who greeted us at reception. Clean and warm room easily accessible from multi story car park which is very convenient. The food in the restaurant was generously portioned and delicious. The Ellison makes for a good base to explore more of County Mayo.
I love this hotel the staff and the food a amazing loved everything twice we have stayed and will be back thank u
Hotel was spotless and they adhered to all covid regulations without making you feel uncomfortable.. the food was amazing I had the salmon the first night it was delicious cooked to perfection.. my Husband had beautiful chicken dish my son had the steak and my daughter had the half roast of the day Everything was delicious.. great choice of cocktails and at a lovely price.. wait staff were so nice we will def be back
Really nice hotel to stay. Lovely room, very friendly staff throughout the hotel, excellent location, will definitely stay again
It was fabulous hotel, staff so mice and food was top class would recommend it to everyone
my self and my wife stayed here on friday 27th july for my wifes birthday and what a fab time we had,from the absolutley fantastic Lisa who checked us in to Arthur in the restaurant,they were just top class,i would highly recommend this hotel to anyone,we will be back Donal and Cindy,Galway
Fabulous hotel, great staff & breakfast. Fantastic value for money. Great rooms & a comfortable bed.
Charming boutique hotel. Rooms are tastefully decorated and comfortable. Breakfast and dinner were tasty and of high standard. Highly recommend.
We had a fantastic time at the Harlequin Hotel. All aspects of our stay went incredibly smoothly - from check-in to check out. I had worried that the great deal we'd got through BargainBreaks was too good to be true but everything was perfect. 10/10!
Overall a nice stay: Room was Lovely and very clean. Reception staff are great. Located just across from a lovely park by the lake and very close to everything. Perfect Location. I did have terrible experiences in the bar/restaurant though. Never seen such a disorganised spot. Every table filthy, piles of glasses stacked up at the bar. Staff were not very good, bit rude at times. Arrived for dinner and gave my room number and girl struggled to find a table that was clean, eventually sat us down and we had to set our own table with knifes and forks etc (same happened for breakfast) and they didnt even bother to help. Dinner was just dropped in front of us and the server just ran off. Dinner was tasty but the cereal bowl of milky defrosted veg was a bit of a turn off. Ordered an Irish Coffee after dinner. 15mins later no sign, was asked my room number and told it was on the way, 10 mins later no sign, again Im asked my room number, girl checks on it to make sure it is being made, 10 mins later.... it is not being made at all, I get up to leave and Im called back and asked my room number for the 4th time to settle the bill. â‚¬6.50 for a warm glass of white wine mmm Sadly this did put me off staying again but the rest of the stay was very nice.
Lovely hotel, 3rd time staying there, staff very helpful and friendly
a great hotel with ease of access, friendly staff, free wifi and carpark. Our room was lovely and spacious . We were returning customers and will certainly be back again. would certainly recommend this hotel
Hotel was fine , would stay there again. the one draw back was the staff in the restaurant were not at all friendly. Otherwise a fine hotel well located and very reasonably priced.
the hotel was lovely, not far from the centre of town. the food was great and the room was spotless. will def go back to this one.
Fantastic stay and beautiful dinner, more than we could have expected, I wish it was longer, will go again sometime. Many Thanks, Tom and Mary
Food good and rooms nice, dissapointed with bar and dining room.
Not impressed by this hotel. Quite grubby. Staff very pleasant however.
We found the hotel to be excellent. All staff were friendly and co-operative. Our room was very good. Food was very good. Hotel location across from the park was a great bonus. No concerns at all - we will be returning ! Rgds, Helen and Tim.
Good experience, nice getaway for Good Friday.
Recently stayed two nights. Nice hotel with very helpful staff. Room very nice and comfortable. Breakfast and dinner very impressed. Lobby is too open and very cold in sitting near the doors - but it is a small lobby. Overall very enjoyable stay and would recommend the hotel.
Beautiful hotel,the staff are all very helpful and friendly.Food was great.We really enjoyed our stay.
central location ,lovely walk beside lake 5 mins from hotel .town 5 min walk. dinner was amazing,breakfast was not as good,, some staff more friendly then others,room was clean,got extra towels ,no problem,as only 2 small in room ,would reccomend lidl deal as we got a great break at a great price,
Beautiful hotel ,staff couldn't do enough for u ,the breakfast was lovely. But the dinner I was nt impressed with, other than that I couldn't fault it
I would highly recommend this hotel. We have had such s wonderful weekend. The staff are all so friendly and helpful. Never once did I come across a person who was anything other. The hotel was so clean and modern. It was warm and inviting. The food was to die for. I could not fault one thing. Will be going back.
Was very nice staff, lovely food and atmosphere. Thank you from Co. Monaghan family.
Really warm elegant hotel with on site free parking handy to shops. Dinner was delicious with friendly efficient service. I loved the decor throughout znd very helpful staff . Thank you
I recently stayed in the Harlequin Hotel, Castlebar. The facilities were brilliant. I had free WiFi during my stay in the hotel. The dinner and breakfast were very nice. I had booked a wheelchair accessible room through the hotel â‚¬109) and a wheelchair accessible room through the Lidl breaks. I was worried that the third party would not take in to account that I was booking a wheelchair accessible room as opposed to a standard room so I filled in the "special request" section on the page, stating I needed a wheelchair accessible room. I was quoted â‚¬83 through LIDL breaks which is â‚¬26 cheaper than the wheelcair accessible room I booked directly through the hotel. I was disappointed to hear, on arrival, that the hotel did not have ANY record of my room booked through LIDL breaks, despite making assurances of this over the phone, 24 hours earlier. However, I would thank the lady at reception who wasted no time in booking the other room for my colleague at the rate I was quoted. But, I would have to state that there was an element of luck involved as, if the other room was not available, we would have had to share a room with one double bed; not an ideal situation when you've just traveled two and a half hours by bus. I thank the Harlequin hotel for a great stay and I would have no hesitation recommending the venue to anyone. But, I would urge the third party, on this occasion, Lidl breaks, to communicate better with the hotel(s) with regard to special requests. There is no point having the "special requirements" section on the page if neither the hotel or Lidl make note of it and confirm with each other as well as the customer.
Comfortable rooms, lovely staff, food was delicious :) good value for money
loved it and will be back, food and accomadation was excellent.
Stayed here last Saturday night and it was superb. The Hotel Receptionist was very welcoming and the room was spectacular. We had dinner also which was very good and I would recommend anyone who wants to stay in Castlebar to stay here, simply fantastic. The only thing missing was the swimming pool but other than that very nice.
Harlequin Hotel is a really nice hotel situated beside the Peace park in Castlebar and the N5 Westport/Dublin road. I found the staff really nice, friendly and helpful. We upgraded out booking to a Suite room for the weekend (307) at a cost of â‚¬50 per night. The room was nice and spacious but as it was uncharacteristically hot weekend in Ireland the room was very stuffy when we arrived due to the fact that there was a large glass window wrapping around the room and only two small windows. We had the blinds drawn most of the weekend to try to keep the room chilled. The rest of the room was very nice, the one disappointment was the fact the bed was two single beds attached together which I found quite strange for a Suite not to have a real double bed. The bathroom was a standard bathroom which was a little disappointing not to have an upgraded feel to it but the bath/shower was nice and worked well. There was a kitchen area with a sink, fridge and Microwave but absolutely not cutlery or extra glasses. Just empty presses and drawers. We ate in the restaurant, which is located in the same area as the reception and in turn you can smell food throughout the hotel. The food was gorgeous and the service was brilliant as with all the staff in the hotel. Prices were also very reasonable. There was a small confusion with the bill at the end as the reception desk did not seem to have the discounts from the booking through group schemes but this was sorted in the end and we paid the correct amount as booked. Overall I would recommend the hotel and would happily stay there again.
I stayed at the Harlequin Hotel on the 31/03/2015 the girls on the desk were very nice and and the breakfast was first class a very good place to stay if going to a show in the TF as its just next door to the hotel will stsy here again
Hi Folks,we had the pleasure of staying at the Harlequinn over the weekend,in short a great stay in a great hotel cannot fault it in any way,this hotel is always up to the same high standard,on another note when booking I made a mistake with dates but Mary in Today FM Breaks customer service was extremely helpful,looking forward to booking again.
good value - lovely rooms - one of the most comfortable hotel room beds I have slept in - they also have wheel chair accessible rooms with shower room in lieu of bath- breakfast is good - hotel is central - but also quiet - would definitely stay there on next trip to Castlebar
Very enjoyable stay.Close to all amenities and town centre.Staff very efficient and friendly.Ideal location for shopping also with free car parking for residents.Would highly recommend.
Lovely Hotel stayed 1 night if I am in Castlebar again I will certainly stay here.
Perfect location, very comfortable, good food and excellent staff. I have rated this hotel as 3* only because of the lack of a leisure centre. However, I would highly recommend this hotel.
Excellent Hotel. Great Location everything in walking distance including Bus Eireann to take you around Mayo. Hotel is very comfortable,rooms are spacious and very pleasant. Breakfast is very good with a wide selection of food. We had diner which was very good and of course Staff were excellent. Would highly recommend this Hotel
mary d carlow stayed 3 nights here and will definately be back.lovely bright and clean hotel with friendly staff.
location excellent, welcome very courteous . room was spotless, breakfast plenty choices, staff very pleasant at all times, thanking you ,will return,
very good 5 star
this hotel is okay if you want to stay in castlebar, not too far from town, very bright and clean, has a car park, dinner was amazing but breakfast was disappointing but then thats a personal opinion because i dont eat fried food.....we stayed elsewhere the previous night and had scrambled eggs and smoked salmon on the same deal....i was happy
Very happy with our stay.
We stayed for two nights it was perfect the food was great and the staff were very helpful it was just a great hotel to stay in would recommend it.
Enjoyed our stay in Harlequin Hotel. Great location, very comfortable bedrooms, staff pleasant and helpful. We thought that the breakfast was good, the food freshly cooked and a nice range of fruit and breads. The only quibble we would have is the carpark. We overshot the hotel (could be better signposted!) and had trouble identifying how to approach the car park. Perhaps the hotel could post a map identifying how to approach and access the car park?
great hotel and staff very friendly
I certainly would have no complaints about the Harlequinn. The room was very comfortable and the staff friendly and helpful. The underground parking is also a big plus. Will definitely stay there again.
Had a good stay here. Very pleasant looking hotel, the staff are friendly. The food was above average and the bed comfortable. Really good value overall. My only complaint is that the room heating was on too high and we were uncomfortably warm.
Excellent stay.staff were friendly and helpful and the breakfast was my highlight. Well recommended
i must say it was a fab place to stay the staff were all so nice food was very good and the room was cosy and clean and we will be back again
My husband and I stayed in the lovely Harlequin once again last Sunday night. Our stay was faultless. Staff lovely, so welcoming, friendly, chatty & efficient. Free car parking in multi storey adjoining hotel is a real bonus. Room lovely, warm, cosy, bed very comfortable. Dinner was sooo tasty, as was breakfast, plenty of choice and the usual diced fruit to "die" for. Hotel's location is a bonus, beside shops yet just out of town centre and next door to T.F. theatre. Bar bit of a disappointment, it's really only a small counter at the side of the dining room, we went elsewhere for our drinks. Thank you staff for another great overnite, we will be back.
Overall I was not impressed by this hotel. Hard to believe it is a 4 star. While there are positives i.e. within walking distance of the town and free parking, the room we were in was on the side of the hotel situated beside the road. Therefore it was extremely noisy, especially at night time when all you could hear was boy-racer cars zooming up and down the road endlessly. The suite itself was lovely, comfortable and spacious, however, when we opened the window about 20 flies fell to the floor and these were not cleaned up at any point over our three night stay. The breakfast was delicious with a great variety of foods. Our package included a two course meal each night (supplement for certain foods). We each had the steak one night and I can say it was the worst steak I ever had - my partners was also bad. It was bland with no taste and no vegetables/potatoes were given with it until we asked. The chicken and beef we had on the other nights was delicious though! The fact that there is no 'bar'/pub (as in a separate room) was very weird. The open plan reception/lobby/bar/restaurant area gave a very un-cosy feel to the hotel.
Excellent service, staff were helpful, polite and efficient. Room was beautiful and well laid out. Would recommend couldn't fault it
Average hotel but the food was a disgrace. I had the fish and got the smallest portion ever seen. Vegetables, again the smallest portion ever seen. Complained about the fish portion and the chef decided to send out another portion when dinner was over. Wont be booking dinner here again in a hurry.
We enjoyed our stay at the Harlequin Hotel in Castlebar. The rooms were very clean and comfortable. We had breakfast and lunch, both excellent. Thank you. J O D
We were glad it was just a 1 night break. We requested a non smoking roon, but our room 425 smelt of cigarette smoke. The silk runner at the end of the double bed had cigarette burn holes, and also stains, I did mention this at checkout, as I felt that housekeeping should have noticed this when making up the bed. Breakfast was a joke as the hotel dining room did not have enough space for their guests. We were asked for our room number and told we had to wait until a table became available. At least 10 couples before us waiting for tables. It was like being at bingo, calling the room numbers as tables became available. Dinner the evening before was fair not much choice, but for the price we paid I suppose this was fair. I would not class this hotel as a four star, no face cloths in the bathroom, glad I brought my own slippers and facecloth, most 4 star hotels we have stayed in provide these, also no bottled water. The staff were friendly, but I would not stay in this hotel again.
Lovely bright and airy hotel. Staff were very friendly and helpful and breakfast was excellent. Would definitely stay again if going to Castlebar.
Great value for a Weekend. Staff were very friendly and helpful and the Breakfast was wonderful. Rooms are to a High spec!
Stayed in the hotel for a weekend - staff were lovely and friendly. We were expecting more of a boutique hotel to be honest, felt this hotel was more of a 3star with funky decoration as opposed to a 4star boutique. Room lovely and big, no mini bar though which was a disappointment and the view was the roof and graveyard. Curtains were stained as was the carpet although the bedroom and bathroom were very clean. Walking distance to shops, restaurants. Breakfast was ok, definitely not 4 star standard though.
I stayed at the Harlequin Hotel for the first time recently and I can only describe the hotel itself as beautiful. The decor, cleanliness, rooms all exceeded my expectations. I didn't have an evening meal at the hotel but the breakfast was very good. Also the staff were very friendly and to get it at such a good rate through Lidl breaks is an added bonus.
Really enjoyed our stay in the Harlequin on saturday. The room was very comfortable and the meal was very nice. Good value. Only slight negative was boy racers out on the road in the middle of the night but hotel can't control that. Would reccomend the hotel. Went for a few drinks in the Irish House pub around the corner. Great bar for a pint if you're in the hotel.
Had very pleasant stay very happy with hotel and food was delicious
Gourges hotel lovely food and staff very friendly can't wait to stay again xxx
Booked two nights b&b and one meal at the Harlequin last week. We enjoyed our stay. Room was quiet with comfortable beds. Staff were very friendly and efficient. The Dinning room is in the wrong place and should be moved to one of the Conference rooms this would open the bar It is the case that the bar in the hotel is small but the pint of Guinness is really good. The hotel location is great - on the corner of a complex containing quite a few large shops and a few minutes walk from he main street.
Stayed in the Harlequin hotel for 1 night. It is a very nice hotel in a good location. The staff at reception were excellent. The rooms were spacious and comfortable. Breakfast was very tasty. This hotel was great value for money and I would stay there again.
The hotel was lovely - convenient to town. surprisingly quiet despite being located on a busy road. Staff were friendly and food was good and fresh.
My hustand and I stayed in the Harequin Hotel last Saturday night the 20th April. I must say that we had a fantastic stay. Everything was perfect. We had our evening meal and it was devine :) The Staff were all so lovely and friendly. The same could be said again for the Breakfast. Everything was piping hot and lovely and fresh. I would have no hesitation in recommending this hotel to all my friends and we definetely will b staying in the Harlequin more often in the future.
Excellent, friendly and cheerful. But avoid the shoulder of pork and sausage farce dish. It was certainly a farce.
My wife and i recently spent 2 nights at the Harlequin Hotel and we had a very comfortable stay. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Room was comfortable and tastefuly decorated. Location is very central and very easy to get to. Breakfast was excellent, it was buffet style and food was hot and very tasty. Overall a very enjoyable stay, we will be back!
Both myself and my boyfriend stayed here for 2 nights. From the minute we entered the hotel we were treated very well by staff on reception. The room was lovely and decorated to an exceptional standard. The dinner in the restaurant was superb, we opted for the early bird menu which had a good variety. Breakfast was also delicious. A further benefit of staying in this hotel is that you are within walking distance to the town of castlebar which has many amenities. Overall we loved our stay and will defivnitely be back again.
Fantastic hotel, genuinely impressed and great value for money. Will be visiting again in the future. 10/10. Barry, Donegal
Booked two nights b&b and one meal at the Harlequin last week. We really enjoyed our stay. Room was very quiet with large, comfortable beds. Staff were very friendly and efficient. Our first meal was so good that we booked the restaurant for our second night. It was really lovely food, complemented by a really good wine list. It is the case that the bar in the hotel is small but the pint of Guinness is really good. The hotel location is great - on the corner of a complex containing quite a few large shops and a few minutes walk from he main street. Across the road from the hotel, just over the hill, is a beautiful park with river and lake and walking path - good for a brisk morning walk. Hugh, Blackrock, County Dublin
We had a very nice stay at the weekend. The room was lovely and cozy. The meal was nice. The staff were very friendly. The only thing i was dissapointed about was that there was no pool.. I came accross a website that said ye had a pool and then I went on lidil breaks to book it as it was great value. The way I discovered there was no pool was when i rang down to reception to see what the closing times were. I was very disspaointed to find out there was no pool as was my partner..because he had a back injury and was looking forward to a swim. Ill paste a link to show you where it said about a pool. http://www.hotelscombined.ie/Hotel/Harlequin_Hotel_Castlebar.htm
Thanks a million to Lidl & Harlequin Hotel for a fantastic stay!!! Rating is 10/10. This is our second stay here. The hotel is very central in Castlebar near all main shops, park, playground.They also validate your car parking. So on the day you check out of your room, your parking fee is covered for the day, so you can spend as long as you like wandering around town or in the shops. Really nice friendly staff at the reception. Rooms very comfortable and modern. Nice design. Flower paintings on walls. Compliments to the chef and waiting staff for a fantastic dinner & breakfast. Looking forward to see you all again soon!!!! We have no faults to say about the hotel.
Nice hotel with very friendly staff. Rooms were nice with comfy beds. However, we had a room at the front of the hotel and the noise from 'boyracers' driving up and down the road was awful. Although this is not a hotel issue it was very off-putting. The hotel is in a good location with only a few minutes walk to shops and bars. Hotel needs a bar in the hotel as the current bar seems to be part of the restaurant and is quite small.
Lovely modern hotel, great location. Friendly and helpful staff. I would definitely stay here again. We had a two course dinner included in our booking and the food was delicious - great value for money
This hotel was top class, had everything you could ask for....great staff, great food, comfort and great location. Would recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a relaxing break away. Very enjoyable stay. Colette. Co Donegal

Spent 1 night in Harlequin Hotel. Room was large, double and single Courtyard Room. Quiet and relaxing. Food was good. Staff were very friendly and we were made feel very welcome. Good location, free parking all in all an enjoyable stay. Thank you!
We were a party of 8 and spent a wonderful weekend at this hotel. The rooms were bright and clean and plenty of room. The location is excellent for shopping and entertainment. Staff were excellent friendly and accomadating. The dinner was tasty and a wholesome breakfast that will keep you going all day. I would highly recommend a stay at this hotel. Great weekend and great value break. A five star experience
Very relaxing break. Breakfast very good and enjoyed the evening meal. Good shopping town
Fabulous hotel, very friendly and helpful staff - great location. We were attending a gig at the Royal which is next door to the hotel. Parking was great (share carpark with the theater). Breakfast was average, we went down at 9.30 and the food had been sitting there a while so was a bit over done. Dinner - food was very nice, but service was very slow despite there only being 5 tables occupied. Overall would recommend - beautiful hotel, great location!!!
We had a fabulous time in the Harlequinn. The staff were friendly and helpful, the room was lovely and the food in the restaurant at lunchtime was great. The surroundings were funky and modern and it is convenient to the town centre. We would certainly stay here again if we were in the area.
We stayed in this hotel for one night in January. The location is good - aaporx a 10 mins stroll from the town centre. It is right next door to the Castlebar theatre so perfect if you are going to a show. Our room was nice - we had a double and a single bed. Bathroom was small but had everything you need. Decor in room was very noce and there were tea & coffe making facilites. There is free parking in the multi storey car park next to the hotel and you can access the hotel directly from the car park which is great. Breakfast is buffet style and there was a good selection and was very nice. Staff were nice too. I would stay in this hotel again.
The Harlequinn is everything it says it is. It is very comfortable, staff are very friendly and it is perfectly situated for all your needs. I would have no problem in recommending this hotel to anybody.
The Harlequin Hotel is a lovely contemporary style hotel, with very clever injections of colour and lighting. Friendly nice staff, beautiful food, very clean warm and comfortable. We realy enjoyed our stay, and would highly recommend the Harlequin Hotel.
Fantastic hotel. Staff very helpful. Bedrooms of a very high standard - clean and comfortable. Food excellent - only critisim - only one vegetarian option on dinner menu which did not apeal to me.Breakfast excellent.
Had A Lovely Time In Harlequinn Hotel Very Friendly Staff
very good hotel,centrally situated and lovely food. lovely
I stayed at the Harlequin Hotel recently as my daughter was taking part in a Cheerleading Competition in Castlebar. I originally wanted to book a room at the venue (Breaffy Woods Hotel) but they were booked out. This was actually to my favour. The Harlequin Hotel was a far superior hotel and the staff were more than friendly. I asked them directions to the venue and they were more than happy to oblige. My daughter and I had a lovely stay - it was a nice treat for us! We enjoyed a terrific breakfast on the Sunday morning which set us up for the day. I would not hesitate to stay at the Harlequin Hotel again and would strongly recommend my friends to do the same.
What a lovely Hotel...Staff,food and service brillant. We just stayed one night on a lidli break got a fabulous room. Last time we received this service was at Burlington Hotel, I would defineatly go back and recommend anyone to stay. Thanks Guys ye are just Great.
we enjoyed our stay very much in the hotel - central location, nice ambience, breakfast nice in hotel. Would definitely return to stay again.
I really enjoyed my one night stay in the Harlequin Hotel, ourtesy of Lidl breaks. The staff are wonderful, food excellent and room service ,one could'nt find any fault. It was a wonderufl stay aroun d - 5 Stars.! Mary Dorrian
The hotel is beautiful very modern and classy. The rooms are quite small so putting a double and single bed in them is a really bad idea but overall they were clean. The staff were very polite and of great help to us on our stay with queries on the location. The food is absolutely amazing well worth the visit for food alone, both presentation and quality was 5 stars and I would recommend it to anyone.
Spacious clean room, reception and restaurant staff friendly and helpful
A beautiful hotel everything perfect
This is our second visit to the Harlequinn Hotel once again I have to give 5 star rating. Everything was excellant Food - Staff - Housekeeping. There was 6 of us and everybody loved the hotel in the centre of town within walking distance of all the shops and the theatre. Castlebar a lovely town will be back soon
We stayed here at the weekend with our 2 small children. Our room was spacious and really clean. Reception staff were friendly. The restaurant staff were friendly too. The only problem that we had was when we went to have our dinner which was included in the deal, a waiter who was not actually serving us shouted 3 times toour waiter that we were on a Lidl deal!!! There was no need to shout it out and also it informed other customers what deal we were on. It made us feel like we were beggars looking for a scrap of food. And also the one portion of vegetables that we got for myself and my husband was so small, there was barely enough for 1 never mind 2 of us. Our daughter, whose meal we paid for, got a bigger potion of vegetables for herslf!!! Other then this, we enjoyed our stay.
nice hotel, very clean but dont do it on a lidl deal, reception staff are lovely but the restaurant staff made us feel like freeloaders, the girl gave us our menu, explained we could order 2 courses from a certain section, we both ordered starter and main, whilst waiting for our food the restaurant manager? (asian guy) came to the table to remind us that we couldnt order anything else because we were on an offer that only included 2 courses, we hadnt tried to order anything else so why the need to reinforce our deal in a busy restaurant our room smelled funny, bit like antiseptic couldnt get shower to work, reception staff were helpful when we told them if you have to go to castlebar its a nice hotel but if you're just looking for a cheap break away go to galway and stay in the westwood, we stay there about 6-7 times a year on the lidl deal and its great, we often have lunch there as well, we buy wine with dinner and we tip handsomely cos we're on a deal but we ordered no wine and left no tip at the harlequin, food wasnt amazin, choice was limited and there was a lot of fat, a lot, on my beef and i noticed that our veg portion was half the size of other couples..who were obviously not on a deal, cheapest wine on the menu was %u20AC19.50 so that probably explains why most people were only havin a glass rather than a bottle
Excellent stay at the Harlequin. Breakfast fresh & plentifull. Room/bathroom clean.Room a little hot as no air conditioning.Parking free. Convenient to the town centre/restaurants. Overall ,would definitely stay again.
couldn't sleep. cars racing outside but besides everything else was good.
Excellent hotel,modern, clean, nice rooms, first class food, very friendly and caring staff. To be recommanded to our friends
Thank you very much for ur email, we had a very enjoyable stay in the hotel. The staff were all very pleasant and helpful. Thanking You, Frank Farragher.
My wife and I visited Harlequin Hotel recently and we were delighted with our stay there though it was a biit brief.. On our arrival the staff at reception were friendly and very helpful makiing us welcome.. We would like to compliment the chefs andrestaurant staff. The food and service was excellent. Bedrooms were nicely decorated and comfortable, the door locks were a bit tricky but we got used to them. Everything was very clean and tidy. Lidl Breeaks are good value for money and we look forward to more breaks with Lidl in the fuuture. Many thanks to all concerned. Victor and Betty Allison
Had a lovely weekend, hotel clean, food good & very central for town, lidl breaks great value!!!

Terry
We really enjoyed our stay there with lidl breaks on April 2nd, fantastic hotel, friendly efficient staff, fabulous food in fabulous surroundings. Excellent value for money. Thank you lidl breaks
very comfortable stay, the restaurant was lovely, however would not feel this was a 4 star hotel, rooms very clean, carpet a bit worn, apart from the restaurant there was nothing else to do in hotel, no leisure facility etc,
We booked 2 rooms and both couples agreed that we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this hotel. The Lidl break was excellent value for money. The food in the harlequin hotel was excellent.
We thoroughly enjoyed out recent stay in the harlequinn hotel. Lidl breaks are great value for money. Hotel room very warm and comfortable and great location. Staff very helpful and efficient, I would have no hesitation in returning to this hotel
We stayed here for one night . We booked the dinner, bed and breakfast deal. The room was lovely, comfortable and spotless clean. The food was magnificent. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Our kids went to see Jedward and they had a fantastic time while we had a lovely dinner in the hotel. I cant say enough about this hotel. I have stayed in many hotels but this one is up there in my top three. I would highly recommend it. It is also within easy reach of the town. 2 minute walk. m donalds is just accross the road. Some very nice shops nearby and i got some great bargains when my daughter and i went shopping. If you are going to a show then the theatre is right beside the hotel.
We really enjoyed our stay in the Harlequinn, staff on check-in very pleasant, rooms bright and spacious and clean, dining room and staff pleasent, breakfast was lovely and plenty of it! Will definatley stay here again, good value for money, thanking you. Martina & Brian.
Thank you for your e-mail that I received recently from you. We had a lovely stay in your Hotel, and we plan to come to the hotel again very soon. I think that the Lidl breaks are very good value for money, they make a good chance to see more of the Country and what it has to offer at good prices for everyone on a reduced rate. Thanking You, Frank Farragher.
Excellent hotel and location, I booked it to attend a show, the car parking was excellent and the staff first rate, the menu was good. I could not find any fault with the quality of the hotel.
Pleasant stay, hotel is close to town and shopping centre. Food in the restaurant was absolutely fabulous! The only drawback is no leisure centre.
Harlequin Hotel is really nice ,great location for shopping especially with Shaws just around the corner,a store that suits all ages and styles.Great location for shows also. Rooms spotless and modern with all the usual facilities,very quiet during the night.Staff at reception very helpful ,its ideal for groups of women away for a night,although my husband was with me ,i did notice most of the guests were women .Will definetely go back!!
Our stay in a 4star hotel for 3 nights with our baby was excellent value and we would certainly book a break with Lidl again.
Hotel was lovely, breakfast was excellent, bit noisy at night with boy-racers outside petrol station.
Good hotel room. nice and clean and modern. At front of hotel. the room was warm so we opened window. Noise from traffic outside was loud. ( I think there were boy racers going up and down). Good location otherwise 5 min walk to the town. Food in restaurant good. Liked the complimentary pumpkin soup with the meal. Breakfast good but not wow. Lidl value for money was v good.
The hotel is well located, clean and very contemporary. The inclusion of dinner in the price, which was extremely tasty, made this night away very good value for 2 people.
Great Hotel, Rooms are bright and modern and very comfortable. Hotel is spotless, staff friendly and very efficient. Great location, right in the centre of castlebar. We didn't use the restaurant but the breakfast we had sent to our rooms was very good. My only compaint is that there is no proper bar, only a lobby where you could have a drink.
hotel lovely rooms very comfortable staff friendly thanknyou lidl will take lidl breaks again
SUPERB------Bright spacious bedroom,lovely dining room,good food,lovely staff, pity- it lacks a pool etc. But we will be back. Thanks LIDL, great value, long may it stay that way.
Really enjoyed our stay Rooms bright and clean, excellent food, staff very friendly and helpful All in all great value for money
Hotel was very nice. Restaurant is quite expensive so we ate in the town of Castlebar each evening as we were only on the B&B rate. Decor in the hotel is lovely and the room was clean and bright. The bar was not very appealing as it is right beside the reception area and restaurant in a kind of open plan style. A separate room for the bar and for the restaurant would be more ideal. There are plenty of bars and places to eat in Castlebar, which is very close to the hotel. All in all, it was a pleasant stay and I would return, maybe opting for the Lidl option including dinner next time. Good value break.
My friends and myself stayed on a weekend break recently and it was a very enjoyable time. The hotel staff were so helpful from the staff on the reception, to the restaurant, to the housekeeping were all very professional and made our stay most relaxing. The food was first class. It wont be to long before I wil be maling a return visit. Margaret
Food, Service, everything was excellent! the deal was so cheap even without the free dinners!
stayed at the harlequin hotel on a lidl break,we really enjoyed it. Hotel is very clean and bright ,staff were very friendly, food was execellant. Lots of places to shop in the area and lovely walks Looking forward to staying again. Thanks Lidl
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in the Harlequin Hotel. The bedroom was bright, airy and beautifully decorated. Excellent staff and food. We were also able to avail of free car parking after check out allowing us to enjoy some retail therapy with a host of great shops in close proxiimity This Lidl break represented outstanding value in a luxurious location. Star rating *****
Lovely hotel, cant wait to stay again. Great location. Very comfortable rooms. Staff very helpful and couldnt do enough for you. Well done harlequin.
We really enjoyed our stay in the Harlequin Hotel. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Although there was not a leisure centre in the hotel we were offered vouchers for a nearby leisure centre which we did avail of and this was great value. We were informed about local events by staff. The Hotels proximity to the Theatre and town centre couldnt have been any better !! Our room was very spacious and very nice. As for the food, it was second to none on both nights as was the service. As regards being on a "Lidl Break" we have to say we never felt we were on a cheap weekend break such was the standard of service , food etc. It really was great value for money!!
The hotel was lovely and very clean and well equiped. The staff were friendly and the service was good. The food was lovely also. The only thing that I would have improved was the eating area is not so private as it was back to back with the sitting area.
The hotel excellent food fantastic reception staff couldn't do enough waiter/ess excellent and all with a smile on their face would be back for longer next time. Castlebar great towm for shopping and not too far from Knock 6 of us stayed there not one had any complaints rooms lovely housekeeping excellent ******
Stayed with family for 2 nights Central location-beside shops Excellent disabled room-high comfortable bed-great shower -ample space Food excellent Children disappointed ttat there was no pool but weather was good so they found plenty to amuse them Excellent value for money
Me and my boyfriend Travelled from Dundalk to mayo on sat 26th june.And stayed in the Harlequin hotel. from the moment we arrived into the hotel the welcome we got was amazing . The decor in the hotel was stunning the rooms where beauiful and so clean. Also the bed was so cosy. The evening meal and breakfast was also wonderful top class food. top class hotel and top class Staff .Fair play to you all. And Big Thank you to the lovely receptionists .We will be back again in the near future ......
Not luxurious, not chic. Central. Staff ok, but decor tacky and cheap. Ok for the money I guess.
The room was lovely, the food was fabulous and the service was great.
Great place. Delicious Food
