Family Break
We found our stay great. The kids club was fantastic & the kids didn't want to leave the hotel. We really enjoyed our stay the food was fab the only issue we had was the wine served in the bar varied ... from small glasses to larger glasses depending on the servers however we were charged the same price regardless of the measures that said we will be visiting again..great family hotel ---

A pleasure
I stayed there during the Summer with my girlfriend before we went back to work! It was a fantastic way to relax before going back to our hectic lifestyles . The room was fine and spacious , The parking facilities were A1! The Swimming Pool/Sauna was a great way to relax also. Overall , I would highly recommend this hotel!
Brilliant for families!
What a great experience! Spa was heavenly, food delicious especially as it was childless! Our son went off with the Mini-Explorers Club. He enjoyed it so much, he went that evening and the next morning! Staff are very professional, yet friendly. Especially impressed with Mini Explorer Club staff. Will definitely go back, have recommended it to family and friends.

Great Surprise
I had an early appointment last month so I had to stay in Ballinasloe for the very first time, so booked the Carlton Shearwater and to me surprise found a really good Hotel. Service was impeccable and the room and bar food excellent. I travel a lot to Galway but will divert to the Shearwater in future

Amazing stay
I stayed in the Carlton with my boyfriend recently and we had such a fantastic time. The evening meal was delicious and the service was fantastic. We were very impressed with the size and luxury of our ... room and the cleanliness of the hotel. The crowd was a bit old for us in the bar so we headed into town for a few drinks which was less than a five minute walk. The breakfast was delicious and catered for all needs and we went onto the spa which was so relaxing with again lovely staff. We left our bags in the luggage room and we were free to avail of all the hotel amenities after we had checked out including the pool and facilities. The receptionist Estella was delightful and we left the hotel feeling totally happy after our stay..we'll be back again soon!! ---
