Just back from a one night stay in the Yeats County with family. This hotel relies on its location, and rightly so because it is spectacular. Located on Rosses Point beach which is beautiful and next door to one of the best golf courses in the west, unfortunately didn't get to play this time. But with this reliance on the local attractions it's like the owners have not bothered to invest in the hotel which is a pity. Maybe out of greed because it was very busy and I know I've tried to book before and it has been booked up. The hotel is old, very outdated and just not a nice place to stay. Staff are nice, swimming pool was nice, price is reasonable and as said before the scenery was lovely, but all not enough to make up for a bad hotel.
Throughly enjoyed a mid week spa break to the Yeats Hotel. The location is perfect for a totally relaxing break. If you need shops/shopping to keep you amused then this isn't the location for you. It is beautiful and tranquil with lovely walks and a beautiful beach. We were very fortunate to have gorgeous weather although it was a bit windy. The hotel may need a bit of a face lift in the communal areas, however the newly refurbished bedrooms are very spacious, clean and comfortable with 2 king size beds, we had a lovely sea view room. The only fault I can mention is the lack of a fridge. However, the best part of this hotel is the staff, they are fantastic, friendly and accommodating, particular credit must go to the lovely Carmen the therapist in the spa. A lovely lady who enjoys her work and gives wonderful treatments. We enjoyed a blissful a seaweed bath, hot stone massage and facial, complete Nirvana! The other staff member I would like to mention was the bar lady, I can't remember her name (a young lady with long dark hair) she made a fabulous Hendricks gin and clearly had very good knowledge of her trade. We had a wonderful couple of days at Yeats and hope to return again.
This large tired hotel in a lovely location at Rosses point deserves recognition that it has survived the recession. In entering the hotel one is transformed into a bygone age of dark rooms, overstuffed furniture and aged and worn dark patterned carpets that may not have changed for at least the past 30 years. Our visit in the late sunny afternoon was for coffee/tea and a sandwich. As there was no sandwich menu we were told that we could ask for a sandwich of our choice. I asked for a egg mayonnaise on white bread. Not a difficult request one would have thought. However the waitress swiftly returned to say that they were, 'out of eggs'. Quite an admission for a hotel of this size and stature and I wonder what the poor guests would be served for breakfast the following day? To by cynical perhaps the kitchen staff could not be bothered to prepare a one off egg mayonnaise sandwich? I then asked for cheese and pickle. No pickle! How about cheese and tomato? That was possible I was told. I should not have bothered. The resultant pathetic offering was a miniscule square of waxy processed cheese accompanied by rough cut tomato embedded between two slices of thick cut toasting bread. Served on a plate with a mound of greenery that was more of a tired side salad than a garnish. Although as I was hungry I ate most of the sandwich it was not an enjoyable experience and my subsequent indigestion was an unpleasant reminder for some considerable while. My latte coffee looked fine in the glass but seem to have the taste and consistency of dish water or perhaps it was just the lingering after taste of the processed cheese? Thought also needs to be given to the access to the disability adapted toilets as at the end of a long sloping corridor one is faced by several relatively narrow ascending steps in order to gain entry to the toilets. If there are alternative facilities they were not clearly signed. It is a shame that what obviously was once such a grand hotel appears to be struggling so much. Perhaps I was unfortunate in my experience and we visited the place on a 'bad day'.
A group of 36 stayed for the bank holiday weekend. We had a wonderful experience. We had great food- full Irish breakfast and the main meals had great choice and everyone found their meal delicious. We had lovely big rooms with very comfortable beds. The Spa and Leisure Centre was excellent with a good sized swimming pool jaccusi steam room and sauna. The staff were very helpful and friendly and the hotel has a lovely situation overlooking the Bay.
Functional and convenient. Very large bedroom with two (!) double beds. Very clean bathroom which has obviously been recently refurbished. Beside golf course and a bracing walk to seafront and beach. Wrap up well. In lounge be prepared to have someone lean over your chair to quiz you with "Where are you from yourself?", followed by "What part?" Reminded me a bit of the priest in the confessional with "How long since your last confession ?" Very friendly and good service.
We spent 3 nights this Easter in the family room which was plenty spacious for 2 adults and 3 young kids. Our room had been recently refurbished. Dinner was included and the food was good. There is also a kids club and the staff there were absolutely amazing in fact the best kids club staff I have ever come across (they even take the kids to the pool). The hotel is well located, beside the beach and close to Lissadell House, Murraghmore's beautiful beach and Sligo town. Our deal was excellent value 3BB2D and kids club for under €500! One recommendation I would make is that the kids tuck shop offers some fruit items, especially before bed time.
I rang the morning of stay and accommodated my request of 2 family of 4 rooms and a single room, And at a good rate including breakfast. It seems like it has been up dated and is a cosy place with a lovely lobby with fires and comfy sofas and chairs. The staff were lovey. And the bar food we got as the restaurant was closed (one of the reasons for not a 5 star review) was very tasty and very well presented. One of the family rooms was a disability room the shower was on top of the toilet and ran hot water for 2 minutes and ran cold there after (another reason) We were the last few in for breakfast but we were in the time frame and not late. But the food was not been replenished and what was there was dry and burnt. Again the staff were lovely at breakfast and fetched my family 4 fried eggs and fresh tea and coffee. I would stay again but would request a better room and give more time for booking. There's a great swimming pool and sauna. Hope my review is helpful
So this is a very dated hotel that they've tried to modernise by adding a spa and a small fitness suite/ pool. The rooms are very dated and reminded me of staying in my grannies (i.e. Hadn't changed in about 20 years!) Positives: Location - right on Rosses Point strand, brilliant for walks on the beach Spa is reasonably good but not 4 or 5 star standard Negatives: Breakfast staff were appallingly rude and seemed hungover- breakfast buffet was emptied about 30 minutes before the breakfast sitting was over and was not replaced. Tables hadn't been set and our group had to ask the same waitress on three separate occasions for cutlery, cups, napkins, some breakfast.... the waitress made clear how peed off she was at the fact we'd even disturbed her- the breakfast was practically thrown at us. I've never experienced anything like it! Shame as other staff were quite pleasant and on our second morning, waitress was the complete opposite- chatty, helpful and attentive. Wouldn't be in a hurry to stay again
I stayed here recently and it was a great place to explore Sligo. It's next to the beach which was lovely to go for a walk each day. The hotel itself is being renovated, and I got a room which was recently done to an excellent standard. It was a twin room I think but with two kingsize beds. We enjoyed our meals and went to the pool each day too. As an extra bonus my room was facing out to the ocean, so maybe ask for a sea view.
Great location just 7-8 kms outside of Sligo. Excellent beach and promenade walks on the doorstep along side direct bus route into town right outside the front door. Free parking and musical entertainment in the evenings. Staff were very friendly and helpful. It has a spa but I didn't visit. That is where the positives end for me. This hotel has so much seasonal potential that it is seriously annoying to see the poor decor, lack of overall upkeep of the hotel & low service standards. From the broken night sign on the facade, to potholed car park, to a toast machine that burned toast regularly and no fire alarm sounded!. Bedrooms were clean with lovely soft beds but you could hear children crying nextdoor and it was off putting!..handwash was a large tub provided at the sink and bath which obviously remains until guests finish the contents. TV wasn't up to scratch either as stopped and started working on several occasions which was rectified when turned off at wall switch. The furniture, toilets and carpets throughout need to be upgraded urgently. Breakfast consisted of tasty muesli but canned fruit cocktail mixed with chopped apples and a few grapes isn't acceptable in hotels nowadays. Rashers were hard and extremely salty. I love my food but this was my worst Irish fry experience. Didn't help when staff opened fire exit to reduce smoke due to the toaster machine..when a table complained of the cold, the waitress didn't close the door, instead family(2 parents and 3 kids) had to move with all their dishes to another table..waitress didn't help. Staff need to present themselves more professionally too. Come on Yeats County Hotel, you can do better. Put Rosses Point back on the map as a destination worth going to for family getaways and day trippers. If standards were better I may have visited the spa as I based the spa standards on my impression of the hotel and they were quite poor. I hope my observations will help somewhat.
