    Easy parking. Excellent leisure centre. Large lobby. Bar food available all day.

    Found beds quite hard. Stayed in disabled room but not really large enough for purpose. Breakfast could not be accessed by wheelchair user without help.

    I had read complaints from previous customer reviews but I am so glad to say I was not put off by them. My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our short break at the hotel. The room was clean and extremely comfortable. The food was excellent and great value for money. There was also a great leisure complex for the whole family to enjoy. We found the members of staff very attentive and friendly. I would thoroughly recommend the Arklow Bay Hotel and will definately use it again in the near future.

    Very comfortable and relaxing. Very clean bedrooms and bathrooms.Staff pleasant and approachable when there was a problem.

    Buffet breakfast was not up to standard of Hotel.Selection of food advertised was not all available.Hot food was not hot. Rashers were overcooked and hard. No side plates for your bread/toast were not available on our tables or on the display.Tea pots were badly stained and dirty looking.Definately room to improve on this area.

    It was nice that the children were able to use the pool.

    Our room felt somewhat cramped for the 4 of us and looked out onto a roof. The bathroom was tired, a bulb had blown and the extractor fan was full of dust.

    It was the first time I stayed in the Arklow Bay even though I have been to the Arklow and Wexford area for years, more often in family or rented accomidation when my children were young. This is the first time I have been there in about 10 years. I enjoyed the few days and noticed the Arklow Bay area has improved greatly in many ways. I enjoyed the few days it was very relaxing and the walks are lovely. I would recommend the Hotel to family and friends. Thanks for an enjoyable stay!

    Very friendly staff.Brilliant leisure club and family friendly.

    Breakfast not great and family changing rooms (in pool) need a playpen to set young babies while you are getting changed.Family rooms could be slightly bigger
