Positive Reviews

The spa is wonderful

There's nothing like adding a spa day to your holiday agenda, especially when you can have that spa treatment and then just head back to your room for a cat nap. With the addition of an indoor heated pool, sauna, Jacuzzi and steam at your disposal, you can stay relaxed for the duration of your stay.

The staff is awesome

There's nothing that the staff at Arklow Bay Hotel won't do for you. From the moment you check in, the dedicated, friendly and knowledgeable staff is there to help you with most any request. They can point you in the direction of places to dine, drink and shop as well as the most popular local attractions.

A good family hotel

This hotel is happy to welcome families with small children and offer amenities such as extra cots, kid's club, children's activities and babysitting services. The indoor heated pool is a boon as are the many outdoor activities that are close at hand.

Negative Reviews

The hotel needs TLC

Some of the guestrooms are in sad shape and the stained carpeting and linens really stand out. Dust that has long settled in place and dirty windows are also at issue here and could detract from your stay.

The walls are thin

The walls and ceilings in the guest rooms are rather thin which means that you might experience bleed through noise form the guest staying above you and next to you.

The WiFi is spotty

The Internet connection in the guest rooms can be slow and spotty which could be problematic if you are travelling on business or simply want to get an email out in a hurry. Lluckily, the Wi-Fi connection in the public spaces is spot-on.
