  • 2.0.Poor

    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.

    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.

    A lovely property in a most convenient location. The breakfast was impressive and we were pleased to have underground parking.

    Lovely hotel, close to main pedestrian and shopping areas, friendly and helpful staff. The room was clean and spacious with a very comfortable bed. Breakfast options were good, as was the pub food. I would definitely stay there again and highly recommend this place.

    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.

    Easy access to downtown, pubs, and shopping. The hotel room itself is nice and has character. Our room faced the street and had a city view. Parking is a bit tight but the staff that manage the garage are very, very helpful and quick to help you either park, or just get out of the garage. The hallways are not like a hotel and can be a bit confusing to find your room, but lots of character and there are signs to help you find your way. I would stay here again.
