        Excellent Location

        For the price very ordinary Room and service at breakfast was extremely slow also the breakfast was not up to scratch compared to other hotels at a lesser price.

      • Older travelers
        6.6

        Location of the Hotel was excellent. Bar food very good, and staff efficent and friendly. Prices for all food and drinks very good.

      • Older travelers
        7.0

        The staff members were accommodating. We attended a wedding there and the food, service and quality was super.

        We had to move from our original assigned room due to a strong odour of cigarette smoke in the room. This was done smoothly though.

      • Couple
        9.2

        I just found the stay very relaxing & thoroughly enjoyable. I would recommend highly to all my friends.

      • Older travelers
        7.0

        Very clean, staff friendly

        Very dissapointed with bar food. Mostly cold, poor service, ( through lack of staff)

      • Older travelers
        10.0

        Just pure quality from start to finish,we will be back.

      • Family with children
        8.2

        Such a great location for exploring wicklow. Excellent value for money.

      • Older travelers
        5.4

        location. staff very helpful

        the hotel needs money spent on it, especially the bathrooms if they are all similar to the one we had ( room 210 i think ). faulty loo seat, gaps between tiling and bath, fittings loose. also no soap, shampoo etc provided which is standard in any hotel theses days. one lighbulb in room not working so obviously not checked daily by cleaners.

      • Group of friends
        7.0

        Good entertainment. Friendly staff.

        Evening meal inedible! Very disappointing and not up to their previous standards (based on other times I stayed here). Faulty kettle in room, no shower caps provided, only one towel provided for two people (rectified after complaint). I was really very disappointed in general particularly with evening meal. I had booked twin room but hotel allocated double.

      • Older travelers
        9.6

        We had to check in early and the staff did all they could to make sure the room was ready in time for us. The room had a beautiful view out toward the duck pond and the sea, all in all a comfortable stay.

        Not enough tea bags in the room. The Arklow Bay Hotel are not the only hotel to be guilty of this error.

      • Older travelers
        6.2

        The view of the sea and estuary from my bedroom window, the swimming pool and sauna.

        The service at breakfast was not good but through no fault of the waiters. The policy of self-service in a hotel of your quality is wrong. Each morning I was brought a fried egg on a cold side plate which I had to transfer to a warm plate before serving myself with any additional hot meats and tomato. Bacon and scrambled eggs, as I am sure you realise, do not improve with keeping under a hot cover. I would have done better in a Bed and Breakfast,

      • Older travelers

        Staff very helpful and friendly. Got toasted sandwich in bar thought bit expensive, €12 for 2 sandwiches.

      • Older travelers
        7.8

        Poor brekfeast, glad it was in the price of our deal as 12.50euros is a joke.

      • Older travelers
        7.4

        spa.pool.sauna.food verygood breakfast,verygood would go back again

        everything perfact no complants

      • Older travelers
        6.2

        Staff very helpful and frendly

        Rooms need to be upgraded, the bethroom had broken tiles and loose tilet seat and there was mould along the edge of the bath trim
