Wonderful Galway
We were traveling with another couple and a check in were offered the opportunity to stay in one of their apartments rather than in two separate rooms. It was comfortable, clean and spacious. Didn't have the opportunity to try their breakfast buffet.

Poor 2.0
Lack of daily room maintenance
We left the hotel room around 9ish and returned 7 hours later. We left the service sign on the door, upon returning our room was not cleaned at all. When we called the front desk they told us they were busy and would be up soon. This would inconvenience my wife and I since we wanted to rest in the room. We had to therefore ask and wait for additional toilet paper and towels. Which brought upon an inconvenience. The staff acted upon our request quickly however this should of never happened in the first place for the amount we paid. Also room was cold.

Great Location
Hotel was in the perfect location and the service was great. Parking was a bit tricky but the car attendant was there willing to assist with the moving of vehicles. We did not use many services as we were out all day long. Rooms were large and comfortable but beds needed to be replaced as they were too soft and the double bed created a valley in the middle which did not allow for two people to have a good sleep. Bathroom curtain needed to be replaced as it smelled like mildew and the bottom was black. Something little but something so very important (and inexpensive). All staff were great and the location is amazing.

Exceptional 10.0
Great central spot
Great stay to be right in the thick of things. Underground parking was included though it did take some time to find a spot that wasn’t blocking anyone. Once orchestrated it was all good.
