A Bench Mark For All 4 Star Hotels
I can't remember staying in a more comfortable 4 star hotel. It was as it should be very comfortable & well appointed. The facilities were very good indeed. Staff were pleasant and exhibited good customer care practices. The only negative was the view from my room to the rear.

Five star experience
I would highly recommend the Carlton Shearwater for a lovely homely atmosphere and friendly, helpful staff.The decor matches that of an upmarket city hotel. My only regret is time did not allow for a trip to the Spa....Next time

Really was impressed with Hotel rooms, Value for money and the staff were excellent. Special mention for Bar staff on duty Saturday night 6th June who were very professional and even had drinks sent to the room for the kids. Great Service!!!!!!

Superb Weekend Break
Only one and a half hours from Dublin by road it is a superb hotel with great leisure facilities. Very friendly staff and excellent food.

This was our second stay and will definitely not be our last. The only thing I would add would be an American news station. I would even settle for CNN. See you next time.

Ballinasloe review
Very comfortable, quiet (mid week). Staff very friendly and helpful. Samll problems sorted very quickly and efficiently. Breakfast would be slightly improved with some fresh bread / rolls rather than soda bread and croissants and some honey but what was available was fine.Would not hesitate to recommend or to re-visit.

Stay in the Shearwater
I recently stayed in the Shearwater Hotel and my overall experience was very good. The staff were very friendly and accomodating. The rooms were lovely and the relaxation room in the spa was really ... lovely. I found the lighting in the restaurant a bit dark , and although the food was lovely I do think it needs a bit more to it. That would really be the only flaw I had about the hotel and I would definately stay there again. ---
