"It does exactly what is says on the tin!!"
The Bellbridge House Hotel, Spanish Point, Co. Clare is not a fancy over the top type of hotel, but boy does it know how to treat people.
Our group comprised over 30 motorcyclists staying for two nights over the bank holiday weekend. We arrived in smaller groups over a period of an hour or so, and thus booking in was swift and without drama or event. The warmth of the welcome though appeared heartfelt and genuine.
On both the nights we stayed, there bar was lively and there was live music too. One the first night, we were lucky in that the returning All Ireland under 18's Irish dancers were celebrating their win and after their meal they put on a wonderful display of music and dancing talent. For those who didn't want to watch this, live music was also on offer in the lounge bar area.
With over 30 people in a group you might expect someone to have a complaint, either about cleanliness of room, standard of service, or quality of food, but none did. Everyone commented on the warmth of service from all the staff, whether it be bars service, waiting at tables during dinner, reception staff and even the window cleaner. No-one would pass you without a warm word of welcome or just to bid you the time of day.
We stayed here last year and were impressed. This year didn't disappoint either.
It may not have the highest star rating, but it rates very well for quality service, good food, and warmth of welcome.
Stayed August 2013, travelled with friends

"Our Wedding Day"
We had our wedding reception in The Bellbridge House Hotel on September 19 2013. I am over the moon with our choice. David, the manager, treated us like royalty from the beginning of the planning straight through to the very end. The service was outstanding on the day. We had a buffet style reception. The food was delicious and there was plenty of it. I can't recommend this hotel enough. The rooms were warm and extremely clean. All the staff were friendly. I can honestly say all the staff made it their goal to give us the most memorable day of our lives. I can't thank them enough and I highly recommend having your wedding or any function with this hotel.
From the first moment my daughter made contact with the Bellbridge House Hotel in Spanish Point the reaction was only positive, helpful and pleasant. Nothing was too much trouble, in fact they went along with everything she wanted.
On the Big Day all of the staff made sure that everything went as planned and then some. This was a Buffet reception and the food was excellent, the service excellent and everything about the meal was totally professional from beginning to end.
This service continued on the following morning and right up to our departure from the hotel at around lunchtime.
I have been at many parties at this hotel and have always found them to be pleasant, warm, welcoming and very professional.
Thank you to David and all his staff for making this a very special day in our lives.
A friend and I stayed here on Friday 27th Sept. We were checked in by Linda who was very welcoming and friendly, she had returned to the hotel business after been away for some time, a good choice as she is an asset to the hotel. Our room on the first floor was spotless, spacious and at the back of the hotel which is nice and quiet. Breakfast was lovely, good choice of food and plenty of it. We had bar-food on the Friday evening, this too was also very tasty and staff were efficient and friendly. We had a very pleasant stay at the Bellbridge, have stayed here on a few occasions and will be back. I would recommend this hotel as it is very homely and ideally located for visiting Lahinch, Cliffs of Moher and lovely walks.
