    Disappointing for this level of hotel. Restaurant and bar staff very friendly with good service. Food good. Reception staff not helpful. Wi-Fi not available for part of our stay. Room heating and bathroom heating not on until 6pm each evening. Parking is quite a distance if you’ve got luggage to carry. We expected more from this hotel.

  • 4.0.Fair

    Could be a lot better. Shower trap and bathroom sinks blocked and smelt disgusting. Clearly not been cleaned in ages. Hotel room doors all bang shut as they don’t have soft closers. Breakfast was a slow shambolic affair. Plus bizarrely adds extra menu charges for basic breakfasts. Valet parking service worked reasonably well and the young chap was excellent. Restaurant wanted €20 per person non-refundable deposit for a dinner reservation! I would have to think Galway has far better to offer than this.

  • 6.0.Good

    The location of this hotel is great but its awkward to get space outside to bring in bags and check in. The car parking building is too far away for any comfort. I was saturated walking back to the hotel! The room was clean but was small and dated. There was no tea/ coffee making facilities in the room which I found incredible! We had dinner in the hotel which was very good and all the staff were lovely and very helpful but I didnt feel it was value for the money paid.
